Jeff Surak started in the early 80s participating in the international hometaper network. His primary projects include -1348-, New Carrollton, V., and Violet. Surak has collaborated with such artists as Alexei Borisov, Zan Hoffman, Rinus Van Alebeek, Frans De Waard, Michael Gendreau. He operates in the netherworld between composed and improvised music, moving between musique concrete, drone, noise, & free improvisation using whatever sound implements at hand. Surak runs the Zeromoon label and directs the annual Sonic Circuits Festival in Washington DC.

Sylvia Schedelbauer‘s films negotiate the space between broader historical narratives and personal, psychological realms mainly through poetic manipulations of found and archival footage.

Artist and multi-instrumentalist Jefre-Cantu Ledesma is a founding member of Tarentel, a member of the Alps, Moholy-Nagy, and the founder of the label Root Strata. He has released numerous CD-Rs, DVDs and cassettes under his own name since the early 2000′s.

San Francisco-based Paul Clipson works primarily in Super 8mm film, often collaborating with sound artists and musicians on live performances and installations. His films have screened at the New York Film Festival, Rotterdam International Film Festival, and in November at the Pompidou.
