About Tim Kaiser:
Tim Kaiser is well known in the atmospheric experimental music scene for his blending of acousto-electric contraptions and Frankenstein electronics to create ethereal, layered drones. His sonic landscapes have been called “experiments in adventurous art” and “eclectic genius” by the likes of Make Magazine, Wired, the New Art Examiner and the Associated Press. Mr. Kaiser was featured on the PBS program MakeTV and has headlined numerous experimental music festivals in the US.
Minnesota’s raison d’être for musical exploration and all-around tinkering with instruments, Tim Kaiser commands his creations with simple sweeps of his hands, willing sounds into existence. He has scored films, been featured on PBS as well as in magazines, and has toured extensively. How he gets by airport security with his devices is anyone’s guess, but his hand-built instruments are as alluring as the sounds they make. Kaiser has been a founding contributor and champion of the Weirdo Industrial Complex for more than 30 years.

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! A true underground artist who also writes books and releases rare exotica music in his spare time.
Tactil Vision is the brainchild of Steven Wymer. An artist who has been a Columbus native for over 20 years. Steve has been recording under the name of Spine, Axess, Projectil among others. His Tactil Vision project is a beat driven car crash set to music. A harsh reality check from the circus of insanity.
