Matt Davignon is an experimental/ambient drum-machinist  living in
Oakland, California. Originally born in Western Massachusetts, he
spent  musically formative years in Northern California, tinkering
with tools such as lo-fi samplers, cassette tapes, household objects,
4-track compositions, extensive chains of guitar effects, prepared
instruments, and field recordings. These explorations fuel and inform
his current work, which most frequently involves processing the sounds
of a drum machine in real-time with various electronic devices.
Characteristics of his music include a focus on textures, arrhythmic
patterns and musical imperfections, with a focus on evoking biological
systems. Matt has released 3 cds with this setup, the most recent of
which is "Living Things" on Edgetone Records, released in 2010. Matt
also co-produces the Luggage Store Gallery Experimental Music series
in San Francisco, and has produced odd concerts such as the San
Francisco Found Objects Festival and Droneshift. www.ribosomemusic.com

Kristin Miltner is a composer, video and installation artist, and
sound designer living in Oakland, California. She most often performs
music live with versions of her custom software. She has designed this
to scan sound files and live input, allowing her to instantly
restructure the sounds into sequenced arrays of units of varying
lengths. This scanning idea is like imagining a giant octopus in a
long thin hallway with continuous windows on each side. One can touch
both sides of the hallway with one's fingertips (if one is an
octopus). The length of the hallway is infinite. So the octopus runs
up and down the hallway opening and closing windows, letting a little
bit of water in here and there, but never stops moving back and forth,
and some windows stay open for longer than others. But there's a
rhythm to it; it's an efficient octopus. The ocean is the sound
source, the hallway and octopus are the scanners, the windows
determine what gets in, and the octopus's rhythm is the sequencing
Her debut solo recording, "Grains", can be found at www.praemedia.com,
and her latest release, "Music for Dreaming and Playing", can be found
