Paul Bradley is a musician from the UK who creates tapestries of textural drones to redescribe the sonic landscape.

Duane Pitre is an American avant-garde composer and performer. His work often focuses on the tensions between electronic sound and acoustic instrumentation, chaos and discipline, as well as site-specificity and performativity.
