Alan S. Tofighi is an Interdisciplinary artist who lives and works in Southern California. Alan's work deals with analyses of the dispersion, obfuscation, and deformation of information. This is done via research and infiltration of legal parameters, history, myth, sensation, disinformation, and the inevitable parasitic transformation of these cells from fringe to central in its infiltration/engineering of dominant culture. As a performer/composer the music, composed or improvised, is contingent on event and reprocessed by manipulating and utilizing Modern and Postmodern histories of music and audio subcultures. Free improvisation, just intonation, acoustics, non-formulaic scordatura, extended techniques, performative maneuvers, and group formats are some sources of examination/strategies in the work.

Burnt Dot is an LA-based noise & improvisation ensemble founded by Sarah Belle Reid and Ryan Gaston. Committed to exploring spontaneous modes of creation, Burnt Dot employs augmented trumpet, modular synthesizers, daxophone, feedback systems, and homemade electroacoustic instruments to synthesize a chaotic, constantly changing mass of gestural and textural sound.

AADY is a collaborative performance between Aarum Alatorre and Cody Putman. Putman is a composer, artist, and bassoonist living in Los Angeles. He enjoys making and sharing sound across many platforms, including radio, sound and performance art, improvisation, filed recording, chamber music and installation work.
