Electro-Kraut noise band, The Miz'ries: uber-americo noise nerd Quinn Collins plays broken records on a turntable with crazy effects, mad genius inventor Jeff Snyder plays his own analog synth creation whilst Neuseelander songstress Leila Adu sings and plays electronic drum pads... They've been described as "a noise band that plays 3-minute pop songs", and as "the music that plays in the club the bad guys hang out in". You can listen to The Miz'Ries here: http://themizries.bandcamp.com/
Jonathan Badger is a guitarist, composer and video artist. He studied music with Stephen Jaffe, Scott Lindroth and John Harbison at Duke University Graduate School of Music. His work ranges from postrock sludge to neobaroque chamber music. In live performance his compositions and improvisations maintain the character of guitar music displayed in electronic garb via a custom software environment utilizing MAX. Often his performances include the use of a distinctly musicalized video projection system based in Jitter.
Carrie Fucile and Dan Zink present a new collaborative work entitled "Sync." In this interactive sound performance, performer Autumn Breaud's heartbeats are transmitted and manipulated live in quadraphonic sound. Audience members are invited to lie around Breaud as a wave of throbbing, meditative sound washes over them.
