Jordan Topiel Paul

Jordan Topiel Paul (b. 1985, NYC) is a composer whose work addresses the dynamics of listening, spaces and contemporary culture. Extending from the proposition that music's primary material is listening, his pieces point to an expanded musical context that foregrounds attention, physicality, place, timing, and genre. His performances and installations have been presented foremost on the internet ( as well as in apartments, canyons, motels, chapels, museums, galleries, cafes, sidewalks, public plazas and music spaces throughout North America and Europe. He lives and works mostly in Mexico City.

Timothy Leonido

is a writer and musician who lives in New York. 

Ethan Tripp

Ethan Tripp is an electro-acoustic improvisor whose work focuses on exploration of the materiality of every-day sounds and the impossibility of silence. The principal devices for sound production are simple objects like radios and speakers, accompanied by junk like bicycle spokes and bits of discarded metal. Like Free Improvisation with no technique, Sound Art with no art, he seeks to formulate an experience out of the trash of the sonic world, the tension of expectation, and the certainty of unfolding time. Ethan has a new work with computer musician Reed Evan Rosenberg, entitled Medium Rude, which will soon be released on the AEU imprint of Erstwhile Records.
