About the performers:
Adi Newton is the founder of industrial post-punk group Clock DVA and the ANTI Group, an industrial jazz and visual arts project created in tandem with engineer Robert Baker. He is also the director of ARMComm Anterior Research Media Communications, the production arm for ClockDVA/TAGC.
David Reed’s work has a deep, long and dark trail. His numerous recordings and collaborations are legendary. Recording under the name of Lupine, Luasa Raelon and Envenomist his sound can be extremely dark and challenging. His latest project as Chalet Endure is an ambient collaboration with Jeff Chenault.
Jeff Chenault is a non-musician who has been recording in Columbus since 1983. A cassette culture guru who has released music on his Exoteque Music cassette label for just as long. An early pioneer in the Columbus electronic music scene. His many musical projects include 10-Speed Guillotine, Central Inhabitants, Resonance and The Weird Lovemakers. He is a true underground artist who also writes books and releases rare exotica music in his spare time.
Moldover grew up in Rockville Maryland, patterning his earliest music after the rock, pop, and metal that spoke to him through radio, television, and his elder brother’s record collection. He wrote songs, played in bands, and taught himself the recording arts with a basement full of second hand instruments and a four track tape machine. In 1998 he moved to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music where he abandoned pop songwriting and shifted his focus to classical composition, jazz arranging, and electronic music production. Moldover graduated summa cum laude from Berklee and moved to New York City to work as a freelance musician. Intent on merging his love of playing in ensembles with his electronic compositions, he wove his way through a series of live-electronic bands, eventually becoming disillusioned with New York’s exclusive and socially complex live music scene. At the same time he began seeing his favorite electronic music artists play live, but found that their stage performances lacked the creative fire of their recorded works. Seeing an opportunity, he ventured out as a solo artist, relocated to San Francisco, and set about creating performances that would bridge the gap between traditional musicianship and modern electronic music culture.
