"Sandy Ewen was born in Toronto, Canada in 1985, Sandy Ewen received a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin in 2008. Since then she has resided in Houston, TX where she pursues musical and visual projects and her architecture license. Ewen has released several albums, including a duo with guitarist Tom Carter, a trio with bassist Damon Smith & drummer Weasel Walter, and a rock album with Austin's Weird Weeds. Ewen's visual work is closely tied to her work in sound; she uses both mediums to explore texture, composition and materials.

Ewen's microcollages, enlarged through projection and digital printing, are an exploration of material and technique. Using a unique process pioneered by the artist, natural materials and polymers are torn, liquefied, scorched, melted, cut, and fused. When enlarged, the microscopic nuances of these manipulations are manifested in exquisite detail. Ewen has presented prints of her work at 14 Pews (2012), Spacetaker/Fresh Arts (2012), Khon's (2013) & Galeria Regina (2014).

As an improviser in both art and music, Ewen sees herself as guiding materials and space rather than executing a preconceived composition. "I like to explore mediums and materials and tease out their essence," says Ewen. "Working with slide projections has focused my eye on the subtitles of natural processes of decay and transformation. Through my work, I am asking questions of the materials rather than dictating answers." "

"Once described as "the only guitarist who has played with both Frank Sinatra and Nels Cline", guitarist Jim McAuley has been integral to LA's creative music scene for over 30 years. After a brief stint as a commercial session musician in the early 70's, he began focusing on his original solo material, quickly landing a contract with John Fahey's Takoma label in 1976. In the eighties he gravitated toward free improv and was honored to perform and record with such LA legends as John Carter, Horace Tapscott and James Newton. He earned his MFA at CalArts in '91 (mentored by Frederick Rzewski, David Behrman and others) and in '94 formed a collective called Gongfarmer whose revolving roster included Alex Cline, Jeff Gauthier, Marty Walker, David Johnson and other Los Angeles new music stalwarts. 2001 saw the release of "Acoustic Guitar Trio"-Nels Cline, (the late) Rod Poole and Jim McAuley-on Derek Bailey's Incus imprint. Wire Magazine hailed the album as "displaying the range, strength, boundary crossing and genre-melding fertility of contemporary improv" and "high on the list of favourite releases for this year." McAuley's first solo outing, "Gongfarmer 18" (Nine Winds Records) received a similarly warm reception from critics, landing on the "Best of 2005" lists in numerous major publications. This album demonstrated McAuley's wide range of influences, creating a style he calls "pan-idiomatic." Cadence Magazine called it "a mood-altering and mind-bending album...He makes his instrument hum with excitement while stepping away from rigidity and into an open and free world of music", while the Wire simply declared it "great stuff." His most recent album ("The Ultimate Frog", 2008) is a 2-CD set of duets with the late Leroy Jenkins, Nels Cline, Alex Cline and Ken Filiano. The New York Times wrote: "Mr. McAuley's precise writing and playing is full of blues figures and rich-toned, acoustic-folk resonance. It's peaceful and rigorous music." A track from "The Ultimate Frog" was featured on the April 2009 Wiretapper compilation CD which accompanies Wire Magazine."

"Described by Spin Magazine as "An apocalyptic, supersonic general of the banjo..." Brandon Seabrook has made a name for himself in the New York avant-garde music scene as an explosive guitar and banjo performer, relentlessly committed to immediacy and precision.

Seabrook honed his terror-inducing riffage skills at the New England Conservatory in Boston. He has since performed extensively in North and South America, Mexico and Europe, as a solo artist, bandleader and collaborator. He has been summoned by the likes of Anthony Braxton, Elliot Sharp and Joey Arias for his unpredictably spiked approach to improvisation and impeccable caterwauling. He has been profiled in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Magnet Magazine, Fretboard Journal, NPR and The Wire.

Seabrook Power Plant, the nuclear trio donned "a manic clusterfuck of merciless banjo torture" by the Village Voice, is Brandon's brainchild, blending the brutal energy of punk-rock with the intricate execution of through-composed avant jazz. The band has released two albums to much critical acclaim. Time Out New York praised the band's eponymous debut as "not only one of the most baffling experimental releases of the year... also one of the best."

Brandon is an accomplished solo artist, named Best Guitarist in New York City by the Village Voice 2012. In 2014, New Atlantis Records released his first solo album titled Sylphid Vitalizers. Noisey called the album a "dissonant guitar army...(with) mind-blowing prog-rock complexities - all at mind-numbing breakneck speed."

Brandon is currently working on two new albums with his noise-prog trio, Needle Driver and a new sextet featuring immoral, percussive compositions under the name Die Trommel Fatale. This recent work is a poly-rhythmic exploration of the dark side of the drum, layering cello, bass, electronics, voice and guitar against dichotomous drummers."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Here is Part 3 of the "I Never Meta Guitar" series compiled by Elliott Sharp.

John King, Indigo Street, Joel Peterson, Kirsten Carey, Cristian Amigo, Adam Brisbin, Sandy Ewen, Anders Hilsson, Peter Maunu, Bruce Eisenbel, Simone Massaron, Lily Maase, David Fulton, Jim McCauley, Angela Babin, Brandon Seabrook, Alessandra Novaga and Ed Ricart are the musicians chosen for this volume to confirm Sharp's idea that the guitar is a continuously reinvented instrument, with new sounds, processes, techniques, melodies, riffs and gestures coming from creative minds and fingers everywhere.

The title of the series is a paraphrase from humorist Will Rogers, "I never met a man I didn't like", and that's the mood of the selection. The music here jumps into the unknown and this means you'll be surprised, and surprised again, as the 18 tracks tickle your ears and brain. If you want to know how the future of the guitar (be it electric or acoustic) is being shaped now, this is your source of information."-Clean Feed
