Maya Dunietz is a pianist, composer, improviser and singer, born in Israel in 1981. Her work ranges between solo performances, composing for various ensembles around the world, writing for theater, creating sound installations, building strange electronic instruments and singing in various styles, among them heavy metal, kleizmer and contemporary classical music. In the year 2010 her collaborations included arrangements for the new album of "Cheveu", singing with "Oy Division", performing at the Irwin exhibition – (Israel digital arts center) and playing with Eddie Prevost, John Butcher, Susan Alcorn, Heddy Boubacker, Steve Noble and John Edwards, to name a few.
“Maya Dunietz is one of the most gifted and resourceful musicians on the Israeli alternative music scene. She plays with local alternative bands including HaBiluim and Midnight Peacocks, takes part in John Zorn's Cobra musical game, leads the avant Givo'l choir, jams in New York with such forward-thinking musicians as trumpeter Taylor Ho Bynum, harpist Zeena Parkins and guitarist Mary Halverson and, in Europe, with Na Maquina Quartet, featuring drummer Steve Noble and bass player Marcio Mattos.” – All About Jazz
Seth Graham is an Ohio Based artist, composer and co-owner of Orange Milk Records with an academic background in Philosophy. He focuses on compositions which highlight tropes across a broad range of musical genres using midi data, Max MSP and samples. His intention is to manifest intersections of classical avant garde and modern popular music with compositions shaped from light hearted Creshevsky-style sample arrangements to dense digital synthesis. Seth Graham’s work has been published by music imprints such as Noumenal Loom, Experimedia, Orange Milk, Phinery, Los Discos Enfantasmes and Tranquility Tapes.
Roy Werner is a Brooklyn based visual artist and composer focusing on sample oriented composition through custom software written in Max/MSP. Often under the moniker G.S. Sultan, his sonic work attempts to force spanning source material into connotative and contextual equivalence via a translation of data into musical structures and cues. Following a similar conceptual arc, Werner’s visual work employs the same software to process and manipulate video samples for multimedia pieces suggesting two sides of the same algorithmically rendered coin. He is performing throughout Europe in support of a new full-length LP, Redundancy Suite (Phinery, August 2016) and has worked recently with other imprints including Orange Milk Records and Mexico-based Umor Rex to release music.
