• Show Bio for Daniel Barbiero
"Daniel Barbiero (1958, New Haven CT USA) is a double bassist, sound artist and composer in the Washington DC area. He has been active in improvised and experimental music and dance in the Baltimore-Washington area as a performer, composer and ensemble leader. His music is informed by a substantial conceptual orientation and reflects his background in indeterminate composition as well as in modal and free improvisation. He is additionally interested in verbal, graphic and other non-standard methods of scoring for small ensembles.
He has performed with Gino Robair on the latter's I, Norton opera, with Robert Carl on the premier of Carl's "Changing My Spots," with improviser Eva Zöllner, the Nakatani Gong Orchestra, and members of Contact; he has released work under his own name and with Ictus Records percussionist Andrea Centazzo, Blue Note recording artist Greg Osby, electronics composer and instrumentalist Cristiano Bocci, electronic composer/sound artist Steve Hilmy, saxophonist Jimmy Ghaphery, percussionist Ken Moore and underground legend Al Margolis (If, Bwana), among others.
Among his ensembles are The Subtle Body Transmission Orchestra (with Sam Byrd, Jimmy Ghaphery, Tim Harding, Rich O'Meara and Tom Wall), of which he is founding member and composer, and the free improvisation quartet Colla Parte (with saxophonist Perry Conticchio and percussionists Rich O'Meara and Kevin O'Meara).
In addition to purely musical projects he has collaborated with filmmaker Chris H. Lynn on experimental film soundtracks both recorded and live and was Music Director for the Nancy Havlik Dance Performance Group.
He also is a regular contributor to Avant Music News, Percorsi Musicali, Arteidolia and Perfect Sound Forever, and serves as an editor of the online arts journal Bourgeon."-Daniel Barbiero Website (https://danielbarbiero.wordpress.com/about/)

• Show Bio for Alexander Hawkins
"Alexander Hawkins is a composer, pianist, organist, and bandleader who is 'unlike anything else in modern creative music' (Ni Kantu) and whose recent work has reached a 'dazzling new apex' (Downbeat). A largely self-taught improviser, he works in a vast array of creative contexts. His own highly distinctive soundworld is forged through the search to reconcile both his love of free improvisation and profound fascination with composition and structure. In 2012, he was chosen as a member of the first edition of the London Symphony Orchestra's 'Soundhub' scheme for young composers. He also received a major BBC commission in late 2012 for a fifty minute composition: One Tree Found was first performed and broadcast in March 2013, and was subsequently performed and broadcast for the WDR in Cologne (2014). He has also twice been commissioned by the London Jazz Festival (once as composer, once as an arranger), and by the Cheltenham Jazz Festival (2016).
An in-demand sideman, Hawkins continues to be heard live and on record with vast array of contemporary leaders of all generations, including the likes of Evan Parker, John Surman, Joe McPhee, Mulatu Astatke, Wadada Leo Smith, Anthony Braxton, Marshall Allen, Rob Mazurek, Taylor Ho Bynum, and Harris Eisenstadt, amongst many others. He has also been noted in recent years for his performances in the bands of legendary South African drummer, Louis Moholo-Moholo. Concert appearances have taken him to club, concert and festival stages worldwide."-Alexander Hawkins Website (http://www.alexanderhawkinsmusic.com/biographyimages.html)
