Stephanie Lak resides in San Francisco, Ca. and is originally from Massachusetts. Her current performances are centered around sound collage, field recordings, restless electronics, tapes, objects, voice and video. She is a repeat collaborator, improvisational performer and multi-instramentalist who is an active multidisciplinary visual artist. As an artist, Stephanie is influenced by the natural world, a digital one and through video, paintings, sketchings and photos she captures, creates and designs interactions between the two.
Andrea Pensado works with sound as a performer, programer and teacher.She has been using digital media and live interactive musical systems since 1995. She studied in Argentina and Poland. At first, she composed mainly for acoustic instruments. However, she felt gradually more attracted by different sound realms. Today, the abrasive digital noise of her improvisations is far away from her earlier pieces. Harsh dense layers of sounds, often interwoven with her voice, combine hybrid synthesis techniques to create a highly personal sound language, which reflects an intuitive, emotional and paradoxically also logical approach to music making. She currently lives in the US.
Jenifer Gelineau is a Western Massachusetts arts advocate, teacher, violinist and performer.
