Bios: 

Lea Bertucci is an American composer and performer whose work describes relationships between acoustic phenomena and biological resonance. In addition to her instrumental practice, (alto saxophone and bass clarinet), her work often incorporates multi-channel speaker arrays, electroacoustic feedback, extended instrumental technique and tape collage. Deeply experimental, her work is unafraid to subvert musical expectation.
Her discography includes a number of solo and collaborative releases on independent labels and in 2018, will release the critically acclaimed Metal Aether on NNA tapes, as well as a commission for percussion ensemble Tigue and a second edition of her much anticipated graphic score book, The Tonebook, on Inpatient Press. She has performed extensively across the US and
Europe with presenters such as The Kitchen, PS1 MoMA, Blank Forms, The Walker Museum, Roulette, ESS Chicago, Sound of Stockholm Festival, and the Le Guess Who Festival. 
She is a 2016 MacDowell Fellow in composition and a 2015 ISSUE Project Room Artist-in-Residence. More info: http://lea-bertucci.com/

He has performed and recorded as Gerritt, Ginnungagap (with Stephen O’Malley and Tim Wyskida), Deathroes (with Sixes), and has performed and/or collaborated on projects with Sunn O))), Sissy Spacek, John Wiese, and Paul Knowles. He is the lead singer of Names. He also directs the publishing house Misanthropic Agenda. More info: http://www.gerrittwittmer.com/

Based in Milwaukee, WI, Peter J. Woods is a multimedia performance artist that pulls equally from the worlds of sound art, theatre, conceptual art, and, most recently, film. His performances rely on stark imagery and overwhelming soundscapes to create minimal, haunting, and affective experiences. As a musician, he has collaborated with a host of internationally recognized musicians (Tatsuya Nakatani, Olivia Block, Victor DeLorenzo of the Violent Femmes, Alex Kmet of Climax Denial) and performed alongside many more (Negativland, Aaron Dilloway, Hiroshi Hasegawa, C Spencer Yeh, John Wiese). Woods has also performed in a number of acclaimed metal and punk bands (including Mountain Language and Galactic Cannibal), produced work at the Minneapolis and Milwaukee Fringe Festivals, and curated the Milwaukee Noise Fest for eight years. He currently acts as the chair of the music committee for the Jazz Gallery Center for the Arts in Milwaukee, WI where he also hosts the Experimental Education Series, a collection of workshops and concerts that amplify female voices in the experimental music world while simultaneously reaching out to new audiences.
