"Caroline Kraabel (born 1961 in Torrance, California) is a London-based American composer, improviser and saxophonist. She is known for her research into the implications of electricity related to recording, synthesis and amplification.

After living in Seattle, Kraabel moved to London while in her teenage years, at the end of the punk era.[1] There she took up the saxophone and became active in London's improvised music scene, eventually developing a style based on the physicality of the instrument, extended techniques and acoustics. She has performed solo and collaborated with John Edwards, Veryan Weston,[2] Charlotte Hug, Maggie Nicols,[3] Phil Hargreaves, and the London Improvisors Orchestra[4] among others. She has also organized and conducted pieces for Mass Producers-a 20-piece, all-female saxophone/voice orchestra[5] and for Saxophone Experimentals in Space-a 55-piece group of young saxophonists, as well as with her two children during walks through the streets of London.

Recordings include Transitions with Maggie Nichols and Charlotte Hug,[6] Five Shadows with Veryan Weston, Performances for Large Saxophone Ensemble 1 and 2 and Performances for Large Saxophone Ensemble 3 and 4 with Mass Producers and a solo work Now We Are One Two.

Caroline Kraabel has been hosting a weekly radio show on London's Resonance FM[7] and is the editor for the London Musicians Collective's magazine Resonance."

"After taking up the bass, around 1987, John Edwards co-formed The Pointy Birds who went on to win awards for their music for The Cholmondeleys and Featherstonehaughs dance troupes. The group appeared at festivals in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Moers, Leverkusen, Copenhagen. Around 1990, Edwards played his first gigs with London improvisers such as Roger Turner, Lol Coxhill, Maggie Nicols, Phil Minton.

Between 1990 and 1995 Edwards was a member of three touring groups simultaneously: B-Shops For The Poor, The Honkies and GOD. During this period he also became an increasingly regular player on the London improvised music scene and performed his first solo gigs; he composed and performed music theatre with the bass and cello duo The Great Explorers, street-busked a lot and appeared at many more festivals in Germany, Estonia, France, Italy, Czech, etc.

Since 1995 John Edwards has become a "mainstay" of the London scene, playing with just about everybody, an activity that has seen him clocking up between 150 and 200 gigs a year. He has become regular player with Evan Parker, in many groupings, and with Tony Bevan, Veryan Weston, and Elton Dean, often in collaboration with Mark Sanders on percussion. He has become a more frequent player on the European (and festival) scene, appearing at Taktlos, Ulrichsburg, Nickelsdorf, Budapest, New Zealand and in the USA. He continues to work on solo performances."

CD1, October Rush, renews the group's acquaintance with former members of B Shops For The Poor - Jon Dobie (guitar) and John Edwards (double bass), and also introduces some new collaborators, Glenn Gupta and Dave Tucker on electronics. This one track CD is a heady mixture of composition, electronica, intense drum beats and improvisation.

CD2, The Art Of Empire, is a reworking of some of the saxophone material found on CD3 into an electronic landscape, creating a world of dark ambience.This features electronics by Kato Hideki, Darren Tate, Glenn Gupta and Adrian Northover.

CD3, An Affair Of Cyphers, is a showcase for the classic saxophone ensemble writing of David Petts, with the addition of Sue Lynch on tenor sax and flute, and Caroline Kraabel on alto and baritone sax..This CD also introduces new experiments in texture, with pieces for larger ensembles.

CD4, The Fiction Department, is the long awaited follow- up to Sudden Rooms In Different Buildings, and is the classic Remote Viewers trio, performing songs and featuring the haunting vocals of Louise Petts.

CD5, Situations, is a set of solo soprano saxophone improvisations by Adrian Northover, including live recording, overdubbed and processed pieces."-The Remote Viewers
