John Krausbauer is a music maker currently living in Los Angeles.
He has performed his music in a multitude of settings – from basements and rock clubs to colleges and art galleries. Numerous recordings of his work have been released on independent labels in both the US and Europe.

In recent years his focus has been on his solo work, involving ritual endurance happenings with voice and violin, accompanied by synth and strobes; his compositions, mainly concerned with sytems-based phasing constructions; the Ecstatic Music Band, a collective exploring just tunings with amplified strings at high volumes and long durations, with stroboscopic lighting; The Essentialists, a country-blues-boogie-raga guitar/violin duo; and most recently the formation of the “M”inimalist psych-punk group, Night Collectors.

Trance-Psychedelia is the aim and goal, thru experiential-architecturalsound environments.

C. Spencer Yeh was born in Taipei Taiwan and is currently based in Brooklyn New York. Yeh’s sonic practice first developed within the autodidactic and u venturesome strategies of the American and International underground, most prominently with his project Burning Star Core. Preferring the distinction of “working with sound and music” over more familiar nominations of “musician,” Yeh considers not only timbre, texture, and temporality as material considerations, but the construction of genre, audience, and lore as part of the listener/consumer’s experience. Having amalgamated numerous artistic mediums and roles over his numerous endeavors, Yeh’s formative infatuation with noise and improvised music could still be regarded as his most unadulterated expression – a bespoke array of facilities and parlance on a foundation of unconventional musical pedagogy.

Greg Kelley has performed throughout North America, Europe, Japan, Argentina & Mexico at numerous festivals, in clubs, outdoors, in living rooms, in a bank, and at least once on a vibrating floor. He has collaborated with a number of musicians across the globe performing experimental music, free jazz and noise, appearing on over 90 recordings in the process. He constantly seeks to push the boundaries of the trumpet and of “music.”

Daryl Seaver is a composer and musician born in 1987. She currently lives in Portland, OR and works as a software developer. Daryl has released dance music under the name Samantha Vacation but presently focuses on more abstract musical formats, mainly working with Max/MSP. Her academic background in mathematics drives strict organizational strategies which are balanced by a deep respect for traditional orchestration.

Jeff Witscher was born in 1983 in Long Beach, California and currently manages his own janitorial & maintenance company Vincent’s Expert Cleaners in Portland, Or. He has recorded under a few different names, Rene Hell perhaps being the most known. He focuses on sound composition utilizing his computer & field recordings attempting strong narratives with accompanying videos for his live performances. Recent solo recordings include Cob Music, 2016; Bifurcating a Resounding No!, 2014; Meclu, 2013; Vanilla Call Option, 2013.

Together they perform as Seaver & Witscher and have released Country Music & Country Music 2.

Ava Mendoza’s eclectic guitar playing that draws on elements of classical, blues, Jazz, metal and noise had earned her recognition as the fret board and stompbox wizard in the Oakland noise and free-improvisational music scenes. Since then, Mendoza has relocated to Brooklyn, New York where she plays in her trio Unnatural Ways and has extensively toured the USA and Europe. Mendoza brings an everlasting fluxus moods and energies to her performances. Mendoza does not hesitate to jump from blues finger picking to abrasive metal and walls of noise all with seamless transitions to make the wide variety of sounds very cohesive and personal which a listener can identify as an authentic expression of a musician that does not believe in the boundaries of classification and genres.

Andrew Jones- voice, upright bass and electronics
Christopher Johnedis- drums and triggers.
The Crenshaw can allude to tensely repetitive footwork and juke beats, explosive art rock, ambient minimalism and delicate free improvisation all in the span of 3 minute songs that employ stuttery drums, warped synths, dastardly bass/voice counterpoint and self-effacing or darkly humorous lyrics.
