Amy Golden is a composer, sound artist, vocalist, and occasional sculptor based in Los Angeles. She creates works for acoustic instruments, voice, fixed media, and non-instruments, as well as sound and sculptural installations and performance art with a special focus on the relationship between sound and object, definitions of texture, and the female experience.

Luke Martin is an experimental composer, performer, and poet, living in Boston, MA. His artistic practice is centered on an exploration of silence, blandness, and community in music, and is influenced by composers/thinkers such as John Cage, Joseph Beuys, Samuel Beckett, and the Wandelweiser Group. He is currently engaged in an exploration of both the possibilities of notating/performing silence and of the social potential within silence.
