Poet, polyartist, sonosopher, and scholar of humanities, Alex Caldiero makes things that appear as language or pictures or music, and then again as the shape of your own mind.

Aaron McMurray is a bassist and composer originally from Salt Lake City, UT. Equally adept at the upright and electric basses, he has performed, composed, and recorded professionally across the musical spectrum, from jazz and classical to rock, pop, and hip-hop. His formal training included studying with bass virtuoso Catalin Rotaru and a B.A. Music from BYU.  Christian Asplund is a Canadian-American composer-performer based in Utah where he teaches at Brigham Young University. His interests have included the intersections of text/music, improvisation/composition, and modular textures/forms.
