About the artists:
Samir Gangwani (b. 1995, Clemmons, NC) is a composer, performer, installation artist, and software designer. Gangwani’s work has been featured at the Kelly Strayhorn Theater, Queens Museum, Panoply Performance Laboratory, Pittsburgh Filmmakers & Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, Future Tenant, Bunker Projects, and the Glitter Box Theater. They completed a Student-Defined Major in Experimental Composition and Performance at Carnegie Mellon University.
Adrienne Cassell is working at the intersection of 3d digital art, emerging tech, sound, and performance art. Adrienne makes work about radicalized autonomy and femininity in virtual and physical spaces through audiovisual narratives and performance of a preconceived future.
Austin Marcus, who performs solo under the moniker of Xylantha, is a synesthetic tinkerer on the brink of meditative mayhem, or apostasy, or tranquility.
Troy Kunkler is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, percussionist, and music educator. Classically trained in percussion and music theory, Troy is at home playing multiple genres and instruments. You will find him in recording sessions and live music experiences with bands who play punk rock, swing jazz, funk, soul, folk, blues, and orchestral music. His creative, emotive, and supportive style serves to enhance every form of music that he plays.
Owen Hopper is a Cincinnati Ohio based composer, sound artist, guitarist, computer programmer, and improviser. His music explores the relationships between the space it is recorded and presented in.
