Rodger Stella (Macronympha)
"Rodger Stella is an American noise artist who is most well known for his work with the Pennsylvania noise groups Macronympha and O.V.M.N. (both groups existing as collaborations with Pittsburgh noise impresario Joseph Roemer), as well as the more recent Birmingham, Alabama duo Hollow Bush. He also has a concise and excellent body of solo work that both underlines his immense contribution to all of those groups as well as explores many unknown and strange new directions in sound." - Heathen Harvest

Did you know? Stella cut his teeth tape-editing for horror master George A. Romero at his Pittsburgh studio.


Heartworm (5lowershop)
Heartworm is san francisco based sound artist Brandon Yahiro-Taylor. A veteran of the NYC and Bay Area experimental/noise and underground dance music scenes, Heartworm currently fuses modern and traditional sound design and experimentation with field recording, ambient soundscapes, shattered breakbeat tomfoolery and general silliness. There will be no costumes, visual aids or jumping around. Just pure evil for the ears...


Erors (Al Qaeda)
Erors is the duo of Geoff Morris and Eric Sanchez, playing improvised music set to home brewed visuals. Using hand-built electronics, tapes, and traditional instruments they create a wall of sound which reveals hidden drones, rhythms, and melodies.

Eric Sanchez is a Special Education teacher who began playing music in 2008 utilizing guitar, tape, oscillator, and contact mic.


Malocculsion (Ratskin Records)
Malocculsion is the solo recording/performance project of malocculsion proto of Ratskin Records. Using tapes, loops, homemade electronics, amplified objects, and field recordings to create a nauseous mirror of audio psychosis and inter-personal hell through dark and rhythmic sounds.
