About the artists:

IOSIS is the project of musician, composer and sound designer Alex Bissen. IOSIS creates gnarled soundscapes, lush atmospherics and fully enveloping visuals in the service of channeling ritualistic sonic experiences by primarily utilizing hardware synthesis means and electroacoustic techniques. The music of IOSIS welcomes elements of drone, noise, and ambient musical forms and textures alongside more traditional compositional structures and considerations, employing instrumentation ranging from a vintage Roland Juno 6 to modern Eurorack modular systems to a contact-microphone-enabled Tibetan singing bowl. IOSIS is an emotionally transmutational artistic practice, evolving as an entity of constant experimentation and redefinition of boundaries both within the studio and in the live performance space.

Norman W. Long is a sound artist/designer/composer born and raised on the south side of Chicago. His current work focuses on sound art production within the larger context of landscape. He has exhibited and/or performed in galleries Chicago, Ithaca, New York, London, and the San Francisco Bay Area. The processes involved in his practice lie within the area of field recording, electro-acoustic composition and dub technique. His art/studio practice includes collecting, performing and recording to create objects, environments, and situations in which the audience and himself are engaged in an open-ended dialogue about memory, space, value, silence and the invisible.

embral is the duo of Adam Holquist (Erie, PA) and Charles Shriner (Indianapolis, IN). Beginning in 2012, the pair have released three critically acclaimed studio albums, eight live albums and given over 100 live performances, first under their combined solo monikers of onewayness + dRachEmUsiK, and continuing from 2017 as embral. Their music is often improvised and draws influence from a variety of musical and non-musical sources.

Jeff (Central) Chenault aka/ Central Inhabitants has been involved in the Columbus electronic music scene since 1983.Jeff’s current audio projects include Circuitry Room with former 10-Speed band mate Andy Izold along with longtime friend and collaborator Dan Rockwell.
