"Michael Foster is a Brooklyn based saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist working within the fields of free improvisation, composition (both graphic and notated), free jazz, noise, punk, and industrial music, and video. After studying Experimental & Electronic Arts at Bard College with Marina Rosenfeld, Richard Teitelbaum, and Thurman Barker, Michael moved to Brooklyn in 2012 studying with Charles Gayle, Ellery Eskelin, and Travis LaPlante. Since moving to New York, Michael has maintained an active gig and touring schedule, playing with Weasel Walter, Steve Swell, Pascal Niggenkemper, Psychic TV, Chris Corsano, Spiritualized, Airway, Kid Millions, Nate Wooley, Sean Ali, Han Bennink, Marina Rosenfeld, and many others. Selected notable venues he's performed at include Bowling Green State University (Ohio), The Stone (NYC), BimHuis (NL), Jazzfestival Groningen (NL), Fabrica Braço de Prata (PT), Death By Audio (NYC), Studio Loos (NL), Betalevel (Los Angeles), Webster Hall (NYC), XI20 (LT), Jazzclub Erfurt (DE), and many more. Current ensembles include: Foster-Michael Evans-Pascal Niggenkemper Trio, Andrew Barker Trio, While We Still Have Bodies, and BDM, GALM Quartet, Duos with Leila Bordreuil, Ben Bennett, Ted Byrnes."-Michael Foster website

"Leila Bordreuil is a Brooklyn based cellist, composer and sound artist from Aix-en-Provence, France. Her cello playing is often improvised, and mainly focuses on texture variations and a collage of phantom overtones and pitched utterances. Through an original vocabulary of extended techniques, preparations, and imaginative amplification methods, her instrument is used as an abstract resonant body to challenge conventional cello practice. Her composed works draw from a similar texture-based musical aesthetic, but also focus on the relationship between sound and space. In her site-specific electro-acoustic compositions, architecture is the foundation of the piece and musicality arises from an organized spacialization of sound. Since moving to Brooklyn in 2012, Leila has maintained an active concert schedule performing with Marina Rosenfeld, Anthony Coleman, Tamio Shiraishi, Chris Corsano, Eli Keszler, Tom Chiu (Flux Quartet), Richard Teitlebaum (Musica Elettronica Viva), Peter Evans, Richard Garet, Weasel Walter, Chris Pitsiokos, Lea Bertucci, and Michael Foster among many others. Notable venues where she has performed include the Whitney Museum, The Kitchen, Issue Project Room, Roulette, The Stone, Moma Ps1, the Performa Biennale, Pioneer Works and the Knockdown Center."-Leila Bordreuil website
