Teodora Stepancic is composer, pianist and curator. In recent years, Teodora has been collecting works for the piano and different ensemble formations that speak in the voice of the outsider, a hushed voice, that does not try to draw attention to itself, that stresses generosity, attentiveness, intimacy, spirit and focus. She is interested finding different ways of presenting, performing and creating music and tries to create an atmosphere that invites for intimate listening and experience, a space for sharing sounds, ideas and music. Teodora curates, organizes and performs concerts in Europe, USA, Middle East and Argentina. She is currently presenting second season of Piano+ concert series at Spectrum, Brooklyn. In her compositions Teodora explores different ways of incorporating theatrical and visual elements into music performance, cyclical and game-based musical forms, and developing works in close collaboration with individual performers.

M. Lorenz - percussionist, composer, DJ. He studied percussion at the Conservatories of Zurich and Amsterdam and at the Conservatoire National de Région Rueil-Malmaison near Paris and took part in master classes with Jean-Pierre Drouet und Georges Aperghis. Since 1999, Martin Lorenz has worked as a freelance percussionist on the contemporary and experimental music scene and has realized solo and chamber music projects with assorted partners. Lorenz began to use electronics to complement his arsenal of percussion instruments, and thus expanded his spectrum of expressive forms towards installation work and music on the fringes of club culture. Furthermore, he has created a series of electronic works for his performances as a DJ, which he has published in a small limited edition on records prepared by hand.

Assaf Gidron is a composer and musician based in Brooklyn and originally from Tel Aviv. Assaf composes electronic and instrumental music, often produced through fixed processes combining harmonic, melodic and temporal material to produce evolving gradations of musical affect. Together with Teodora Stepancic, Assaf is half of the curator/performer duo Stepancic.Gidron. He is an active as performer and improviser, playing cello, guitar and electronics, and member of the NYC-area based Love Collective, a group devoted to organizing intimate events playing rarely performed and new works.

This event is a part of the wulf.'s third annual Open Source electronic music series. Each event in the series is dedicated to presenting new works by artists working with technologies in unique and innovative ways. Open Source is made possible in part by a generous grant from the DCA Los Angeles.
