Jessica Moss has been flourishing as a solo artist since the release of her acclaimed debut album Pools Of Light in spring 2017. The violinist, composer and singer best known for her fifteen-year tenure in political post-punk band Thee Silver Mt. Zion has been captivating audiences with gritty, warmly expressive electronic- and drone-inflected post-classical minimalism (and sometimes maximalism), accented by a distinctive melodic sensibility that channels Klezmer, Balkan and Middle Eastern tropes. A deeply talented collaborator, Moss is also a founding member of avant-klezmer group Black Ox Orkestar and has worked extensively with Vic Chesnutt, Carla Bozulich, and Big|Brave. Moss’ latest album Entanglement was released in 2018 and finds her channeling quantum theory as a metaphor for creating energetic connections through esoteric processes.

Over the past few years Moss has toured extensively throughout North America and Europe. Recent highlights from collaborations include recordings with Sarah Davachi, Roy Montgomery, Oiseaux-Tempête & G. W. Sok, and Daniel O'Sullivan. In addition to her musical work, Moss is a talented visual artist and she creates all of the videos that accompany her solo recordings.

Ka Baird is a performer, composer, and sound designer based in New York City. They are known for their live solo performances which include extended vocal, breath and microphone techniques combined with electronics and psychoacoustic interplay of flutes and other woodwinds. They create a present tense sound with a vigorous delivery that seeks extreme release through physical exertion and psychic extension that "dances in the undefined margins of experimental sound, performance art, and humor."

They are one of the founding and continuing members of Spires That In The Sunset Rise founded in Chicago in 2001. Recent national and international engagements have included performances at the Unsound Festival (Krakow), Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago), MoMA PS1 (NYC), Issue Project Room (NYC), The Kitchen (NYC), The Institute of Contemporary Art (Philadelphia), TUSK Festival (Newcastle, UK), Incubate (Tilburg, Netherlands), KRAAK (Brussels), Le Guess Who (Utrecht, Netherlands), and the Festival Of Endless Gratitude (Copenhagen).
