Delicate Sen

Billy Gomberg is a musician and video artist living in Brooklyn, NY. His studio practice incorporates analog synthesis, digital treatments, acoustic recordings and custom programming that gives rise to electronic sound caught gazing at its own physicality, acoustics in love with their own abstraction. Billy has exhibited or performed in New York, Boston, Providence, London, Lisbon, Graz, Zurich and elsewhere. His CD's Comme and Days are available from mOAR and The Land Of, respectively.

Anne Guthrie is a composer, performer and PhD candidate in Architectural Acoustics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Her acoustic compositions have been performed by the University of Iowa Chamber Orchestra, Ensemble Pamplemousse, and the S.E.M. Ensemble, and her electronic works are available at and As a french horn improviser, she has performed with Edwin Prevost, Jeremiah Cymerman, Mattin, and Pauline Oliveros, among others.

Richard Kamerman prefers small sounds to large sounds but that doesn't mean they are always performed as quiet sounds. He also likes accidental sounds and collecting his instruments from people's trash on the street. Although essentially a percussionist, he rarely sits behind a drum kit, preferring to explore the percussive behaviors of various repurposed electronics - computer circuit boards, mechanical parts. Other regular collaborators include Reed Evan Rosenberg (as the duo Tandem Electrics), Steven Flato, Gregory Reynolds, and the composer's quintet Frogwell.
