METTE RASMUSSEN is a Danish saxophone player living in Trondheim, Norway. Drawing from the energy of free jazz, her playing has been described as "a head full of ideas" that she executes to the maximum. With an ongoing study of new sonic possibilities she uses a broad pallet of techniques, extending the grammar of the instrument. The last several years she has been highly active all around the world.
”Young Scandinavian saxophone sensation”. — Downbeat

CHRIS CORSANO is a drummer who's been operating at the vanguards of free improvisation, avant-rock, and noise music since the late '90s. He's worked with saxophonists like Joe McPhee, Akira Sakata, Paul Flaherty and Evan Parker; guitarists such as Jim O'Rourke, Sir Richard Bishop and Nels Cline; and also one-of-a-kind artists Björk and Jandek. His style incorporates high energy free improvising, more textural work, and augmenting the drum kit with everything from cello strings stretched across the skins to disassembled saxophone parts.
Voted one of the '100 Greatest Drummers of Alternative Music' by Spin Magazine (May 2013)

MICHIYO YAGI is the premier virtuoso of the transverse Japanese harp known as the koto. A living compendium of extended techniques and an innovator who has significantly advanced the potential of the koto, she is equally at home in the classics, contemporary music, avant garde jazz and progressive rock.
“Michiyo Yagi is a national treasure.” — The Japan Times
