DEVIN SARNO

Devin Sarno began “CRIB” in early 1990 as a solo bass sound project focusing on improvised subsonics. Over the better part of a decade, this music has evolved from high volume feedback experimentation to a sonic examination of the meditative properties of low-end drone music. The music of Devin Sarno has been described as:

“A rich and genuinely beautiful music. If, on one hand, this sound is one of foreboding, its resonance, on the other, is deeply seductive.”
• Motion UK

While Rolling Stone.com notes:

“It’s contemporary classical music with an indie rock sensibility and will find fans in folks who grew up digging noise bands but are looking for something a bit more beautiful to trip out on in adulthood.”

Sarno has toured both coasts of the United States, sharing concert bills with artists as diverse as: Thurston Moore (of Sonic Youth), Charles Gayle, Z’EV, Nels Cline, Foetus, Merzbow, Borbetomagus, Blonde Redhead, Pauline Oliveros, Masonna, Ben Harper, Gus Gus, William Hooker, Kato Hideki, Carla Bozulich, Banyan (feat. Mike Watt & Stephen Perkins) & more.

HANS FJELLESTAD

Los Angeles musician and filmmaker Hans Fjellestad tours and records extensively as a solo artist and in collaboration with numerous players on the experimental music scene in over a dozen countries. A “mad scientist improviser” (International DJ Magazine) and “master of analogue synthesis” (The WIRE), his music has been described as “unbridled sonic freedom … raw, almost shamanic energy that embodies the true essence of unrestricted music” (XLR8R). As filmmaker, Hans is best known as the director of the feature documentary, MOOG, about electronic music pioneer Robert Moog and the currrent Showtime documentary SUNSET STRIP.
