About the artists:
Skeletons (also known as Skeletons and the Girl-Faced Boys, Skeletons and the Kings of All Cities, Skeletons Big Band, and Skeleton$) is an American entertainment unit, formed in 2002, in Oberlin, OH. Assembled around the solo work of producer and songwriter Matt Mehlan, the project embodies an expressed ethos of collaboration and unpredictability, taking song-form, personnel, instrumentation, performance, recordings – and even b(r)and name – as opportunities for experimentation. In its various forms, the band has toured around the world, and recorded for Ghostly International, Tomlab, Crammed Discs, Altin Village and Mine, and Shinkoyo – the imprint they co-founded.
Adam Buffington is a composer and performer exploring the experiential effects of glacial physical movement and gesture in combination with quiet, delicate noise and prolonged silences. His work as composer and saxophonist has been presented at such venues as Hartford Art School, Real Art Ways (Hartford), Ely Center of Contemporary Art (New Haven), Mengi (Reykjavik), Reykjavik Art Museum, and ARTgallery GÁTT (Kópavogur). He has recently studied at the Iceland Academy of the Arts in Reykjavik under Atli Ingólfsson, and has collaborated with such composers and performers as Zach Rowden, Trevor Saint, Henry Birdsy, Matt Sargent, and Robert Carl.
