Archie Carey is a multi-instrumental performer/composer living in Los Angeles. He is interested in writing music that is not only meditative for the listener, but also for the performer, in order to create a communal sense of timelessness inside a performance space. In solo work and in collaborations with dancers and filmmakers, he has been experimenting with field recording, analog electronics, and aspects of performance art. Carey has had the opportunity to perform at Carnegie Hall, Symphony Space, Alice Tully Hall, The HAMMER Museum, Saban Theatre, Zipper Hall, Highways Performance Space, Pieter PASD, The Wulf, Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater (REDCAT), and various other art spaces across the country. He has also toured China with the Manhattan Symphonie and Western Europe with the AMA Wind Ensemble. Carey is currently a member of wildUp!, a modern music collective/chamber orchestra, and The Joshua Trio, a double reed and piano trio focusing on new works as well as classics.

Odeya Nini is a vocalist and composer of contemporary experimental music. Her solo vocal work extends the dimension and expression of the voice and body, allowing a sonic and physical spectrum of silence to noise and tenderness to grandeur. Odeya has collaborated extensively as both a performer and composer, and has been a part of works by artists such as Meredith Monk, Butch Morris, Maureen Selwood, and the Yelleb Dance Ensemble. Her work has been presented at numerous venues including REDCAT, the Hammer Museum, Joyce Soho, Art Basel Miami, and from Los Angeles to Tel Aviv to Odessa and Mongolia. Odeya holds a BFA from the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music and an MFA in composition from CalArts. Her debut album for solo voice, Vougheauxyice, was released in April 2014 on pfMENTUM records.
