Chris Weldon has spent the past 40 years choosing some sound sources, making some sounds, and building from there. He performs solo and with others, combining electronic and acoustic instruments. He creates sounds that are both pleasing and antagonistic. Lately, he has been playing with a 1/2 size cello, a 28″ gong and a looper, some effects and random other instruments. He is a good cook, too.
Lisa Miralia (Baat) is a musician, DJ, and curator of independent sound art events and monthly event series in Cleveland, Ohio. She performs in a number of projects involving experimental electronics, electro-acoustic improv and composition, noise and noise rock, dark ambience, and deep third eye drones. Baat is Lisa’s solo project, incorporating elements of experimental electronics, homebuilt and traditional instruments, vocals, ancients and otherly influences, and sometimes performance art. In addition to performing and curating events, Lisa also hosts the long-running Mysterious Black Box radio show each week on WCSB 89.3fm, featuring a free-form and experimental music format.
Joo Won Park (b.1980) wants to make everyday sound beautiful and strange so that everyday becomes beautiful and strange. He performs live with toys, consumer electronics, kitchenware, vegetables, and other non-musical objects by digitally processing their sounds. He also makes pieces with field recordings, sine waves, and any other sources that he can record or synthesize. Joo Won draws inspirations from Florida swamps, Philadelphia skyscrapers, his two sons, and other soundscapes surrounding him. He has studied at Berklee College of Music and the University of Florida, and currently serves as a Visiting Assistant Professor of Computer Music at the Oberlin Conservatory. Joo Won’s music and writings are available on ICMC DVD, Spectrum Press, MIT Press, and PARMA Recording.
