Michael e. Casteels wrestles with robots in existential-crisis, dinosaurs that refuse extinction, alphabets in various stages of explosion/implosion, and many other serious topics, like century-long bus rides, and the way the clouds look right now. He creates surreal, pop-folk, electroacoustic music with the aid of a loop station, a few pedals, and a few instruments he found abandoned on the moon. More info.

David Parker is Slow Man Tofu, performing Diary Tape: “”The idea for this tape came out of some recording sessions with friends. My bandmate and I were using interviews she had recorded on tape, manipulating those tapes and playing instruments along to the interviews. It inspired me to make something more personal involving my own voice and thoughts in audio format, as a sonic element alongside stretches of improvised musical passages. I used a variety of instruments each of which lent itself to a particular path of composing. Each one has it’s own personality and I arranged them to complement the feelings and thoughts from the spoken word passages.
