Electronic music was an early influence on his approach to violin playing, which challenges traditional romantic concepts of the violin/viola through use of preparations and micro tuning.

• Show Bio for Marc Ramirez
"Marc's classical bass career began at the Manhattan School of Music, and took an unexpected fortuitous detour to Portugal twenty years ago when he was invited to audition for the Gulbenkian Musica Orchestra in Lisbon. Marc is now the first bass chair and soloist of this much-travelled international symphony. As well as heading up the bass section of the Gulbenkian Orchestra, Marc mentors various educational projects and teaches at the Piaget University Institute and the Higher National Academy of Orchestra.
"My journey has been marked by a series of people who taught me and offered such great opportunities that one of the things that move me is being able to give back what I've received. Working with young musicians is one of the most gratifying experiences of my career." "-Upton Bass (https://uptonbass.com/about/who-plays-an-upton-bass-upton-bass-string-instrument-co/marc-ramirez/)

• Show Bio for Luiz Rocha
"Luiz Rocha: I play the clarinet and bass clarinet mostly in free improvisation, new music, contemporary, avant-garde infused, post-bla-bla-bla ensembles.
Brazilian, based in Barcelona, where I'm a close collaborator with Discordian Records.
Around four times a year I switch to Japanese mode and shoot loads of pictures. For me, photography is much less intimate a process than music; it's an external exploration.
Anyway, the process is alike for both: awareness, improvisation, technique; the act is driven by pure impulse and/or by observing and carefully composing."-Luiz Rocha Website (http://www.carahiba.com/luiz-rocha/)

Pinheiro's intuitive approach to improvisation and exploration of the piano timbres, using both classical and extensive techniques, makes his music energic, polyrhythmic and full of contrasts. Moreover, he has honed his technique at workshops of improvisa- tion and composition where he has played with virtuous names, such as Carlos Zíngaro, Peter Kowald, Gunther Muller or Patrick Brennan. He has also performed with several musicians, like Hiroshi Kobayashi, Cristin Wilboltz, Nathan Fuhr, Blaise Siwula, Per Anders Nilsson, John Zorn, Nobuyasu Furuya, Jason Stein, Nate Wooley, John Butcher, Lotte Anker, Joe McPhee, Keir Neuringer, among others. In 2010 Pinheiro formed his project RED Trio, with Hernâni Faustino (bass) and Gabriel Ferrandini (drums). The band has recorded four albums with Clean Feed and Nobusiness Records and performed live at jazz and improvised music festivals and concerts in Portugal, USA, Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Poland and Romenia.

• Show Bio for Jose Oliveira
"Polivalent artist with conections to the Fluxus movement, José Oliveira is well known, besides music by his "mail art" creations, performance and poetry.
As an improvisor, his aproach to percussion is similar to Paul Lovens, Roger Turner, Lê Quan Ninh and Paul Lytton. He prefers a non conventional "set", where he uses instruments and objects as raw materials to create an improvised language rich in terms of timbre and textures. To this he adds sometimes inside piano manipulations and prepared guitar, in the same way as John Cage: the objects are placed on the strings or in between them in real-time performance, and not according to a previous plan.
He belonged to Sei Miguel collective between 1989 and 1996, played with Carlos Bechegas and Pedro Roxo and has a regular activity with Ernesto Rodrigues."-Creative Sources (http://creativesourcesrec.com/creative_artists.html)
