Bernd Klug
Klug incorporates local police transmissions, his recording device’s CPU, his wireless LAN router, a conversation in front of his window, his neighbor’s Mexican music, sonifications of a sat- ellite dish, data from his US visa application from Austria as “an artist of extraordinary ability”, and other sound sources into his entirely organic double bass (and electric bass on the first track) playing. The end results are hybrid compositions that tell stories about the people and things that surround him, while exploring and mapping the physical world of the bass itself http://klug.klingt.org/James Wadsworth Strong
Storyteller / Improviser / Too Humble Instrument Builder. Strong plays the “dads”, a family of plywood piano wire instruments that combine techniques of friction and plucking with unconventional amplification to form the bedrock for intimate exploration. You really should listen to In the Merops Sally it’s probably the best thing you’ll hear today
