Gabi Losoncy is a young woman from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania who makes various decisions with outer consequences based on how she feels, and to the end of expressing how she feels. Generally working in unlayered, linear audio since her time as a member of Good Area, she expands her practice on a case-by-case basis, making great effort not to do anything unnecessary. She has released and has relationships with Alien Passengers, c a d u c., Impulsive Habitat, Recital, and Kye, and has a book, Second Person, forthcoming from Philip Best's new Amphetamine Sulphate imprint.

Mark Harwood was born in Ferntree Gully, Australia and now resides in London, UK. He runs the publishing business Penultimate Press, which investigates forgotten/neglected audio and ideas. He has issued art books by Graham Lambkin, recordings by Henning Christiansen, music from radical French instrument builder Jacques Brodier, a rediscovered work of early minimalism by Dennis Johnson, the only known recordings by Danish artist Poul Gernes, and the two full-length recordings by Polish outfit Księżyc, amongst other works by Aine O’Dwyer, Pancrace, Joe McPhee, and many others.
Under the name Astor, Harwood deploys a wide variety of techniques including field recording, musique concrète, and electronics. All of these forms are approached with a sense of bypassing the cliches imbedded within in order to coerce a sound world which is simultaneously contemporary, foreign, beautiful, harrowing, and engaging.
