A recipient of the Rome Prize and the Berlin Prize, Ken Ueno is a composer, vocalist, and sound artist who is currently a professor at UC Berkeley, where he holds the Jerry and Evelyn Hemmings Chambers Distinguished Professor Chair in Music.
Christopher Adler is a composer, performer and improviser living in San Diego, California. His music draws upon over twenty-five years of research into the traditional musics of Thailand and Laos, and a background in mathematics. He is a foremost performer of new music for the khaen, a free-reed mouth organ from Laos and Northeast Thailand, and has composed extensively for instruments from Asia.
Vera Ivanova's compositions have been described as "humanistic and deeply felt works" (John Bilotta, Society of Composers). After teaching as Assistant Professor of Theory and Composition at the Setnor School of Music of Syracuse University (NY), she was appointed as Associate Professor of Music in the College of Performing Arts at Chapman University (Orange, CA).
Nicholas Deyoe is a Los Angeles based guitarist, composer, and conductor. He is a co-founder of wasteLAnd ensemble and concert series and is a member of the dark-ambient electric guitar duo KillDry with Jay Sorce. His music has been called “intriguingly complex and excitedly lush” by Los Angeles Times.
