Ashley Bellouin’s work explores the merging of sound art, electro-acoustic composition, and instrument building. She focuses on the studies of sonology, psychoacoustics, and the interaction between sound and architecture. Her compositions emphasize and exploit the sonic potential contained within a single musical gesture, regularly using electronics to develop latent qualities. Spatialization, beat frequencies, auditory illusions, and microtonal tunings are frequent compositional tools.

Ashley holds an MFA in Electronic Music & Recording Media from Mills College, where she was awarded the Frog Peak Collective Experimental Music Award for most outstanding thesis. She has performed extensively throughout the west coast and has held residencies at the Paul Dresher Ensemble Artist Residency Center, the UC Berkeley Center for New Media, the Djerassi Resident Artists Program, Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, and EMS in Stockholm, Sweden. In the Fall of 2016 her debut solo LP, Ballads, will be released on Drawing Room Records.

Professionally, Ashley has worked for synth pioneers Don Buchla, as his assistant in research and development, and Dave Smith, as a technician at Dave Smith Instruments. She currently serves as Visiting Faculty at the San Francisco Art Institute and resides in Oakland, CA.

Michele Seippel: I strongly believe the intersection of mediums is the foundation of my work. In order for mediums to intersect, they must have a common thread. For myself, that thread is time. My work is comprised of captured personal moments from my audio diaries. During my live performances I am able to find a home for the physical and not so concrete memories with the use of field recordings, voicemails, and video footage, while manipulating them in real-time. The use of motion controllers, looping and audio analysis creates an ephemeral experience for the audience. My process of layering and blurring both imagery and soundscapes should hopefully provoke the audience to reminisce about fleeting memories that often escape our conscious. I am a graduate from Virginia Commonwealth with degrees in Kinetic Imaging and Painting and New Genres. My background in live performance sound and video editing has allowed me to participate in galleries, theaters domestically and abroad. I currently make sounds in my little green house, live in Santa Clara, California and run a neat net label with my brother over at seippelabel.com

Joshua Churchill + Paul Clipson Joshua Churchill and filmmaker Paul Clipson create hallucinatory collisions of sound, light, and image using field recordings, guitar, tape loops, electronics and film, respectively. For Re:Sound, Churchill and Clipson will be incorporating sounds and images collected on Mare Island, while utilizing the element of chance as each artist presents densely layered and textured abstract collages within their respective mediums without premeditations on their coalescence. Churchill and Clipson's most recent collaborations include the MONO NO AWARE festival in New York City (with John Davis), and the UNSEEN series at Gray Area in San Francisco. Joshua Churchill is a San Francisco-based cross-disciplinary artist whose immersive site-specific sound and light work takes the form of both installation and performance, often blurring the line between the two. In addition to performing with filmmakers such as Paul Clipson and John Davis, Churchill also performs and records under the moniker Plumes. Churchill has exhibited and performed throughout the US and abroad.  Paul Clipson makes films in Super8 and 16mm. Many of his films are the result of collaborations with sound artists such as Grouper, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma and Joshua Churchill, all of whose methods of experimenting with sound and instrumentation, incorporating improvisation, mistakes and accidents into live performances and recordings, have greatly influenced his work. His films have screened around the world in festivals and at sound & film events such as the International Film Festival Rotterdam, The New York Film Festival and the Cinémathèque Française
