Clara Allison

Clara Allison is a sound artist interested in intimacy and distance. She uses sound, light, and vibration to build immersive spaces / moments that emphasize connection. In her perpetually morphing practice, she returns continually to themes of ecology, queerness, and the space-body relationship, realizing interactive installations and spatialized compositions.

Nicholas Virzi

Dr. Nick Virzi (b. 1991) is a composer from New York City living in the San Francisco Bay Area, California. His recent work explores the mystical nature of music through imagistic representation, orchestration of complex numerical systems, and use of original natural sound recordings. In addition to composing, Nick is a field recording artist, electric guitarist, conductor, researcher, and educator. He also hosts the international composer interview series Composer OverTime.

Erik Ulman

Fernando Lopez-Lezcano

Fernando Lopez-Lezcano enjoys building things, fixing them when they don't work, and improving them even if they seem to work just fine. The scope of the word "things" is very wide and includes computer hardware and software, controllers, music composition, performance, and sound. His music blurs the line between technology and art, and is as much about form and sound processing, synthesis, and spatialization, as about algorithms and the custom software he writes for each piece.
