      Saxophonist and composer Aaron Bennett has been an active force in the Bay Area jazz and improvised music communities for more than 15 years. He has performed throughout the United States and abroad including performances with Wadada Leo Smith, Peter Kowald, John Butcher, Donald Robinson, Marco Eneidi, Gianni Gebbia, Adam Lane,Larry Ochs, Steve Adams, John Raskin,Victoria Williams, Aphrodesia, Lagos-Roots, The Rova Saxophone Quartet and many others. He also leads his own groups Go-Go-Fightmaster, and electro-magnetic trans-personal orchestra.

      Jason Levis currently studying contemporary composition and performance in Berlin, and touring Germany with anti-folk band Susie Asado, is at once devoted to the intersection between contemporary composition and experimental improvisation, electronic art music and old school roots reggae dub, and abstract soundscape narratives and popular music. His wide-ranging creative efforts are skillfully bound by his innate sense of timbre, sonic space, and rhythmic force. Jason has performed his compositions in the United States with his own new music ensemble the Heftpistole Chamber Ensemble and roots reggae band Joseph's Bones, with the collaborative project duo B. with contrabassist Lisa Mezzacappa.  

      Josh Allen has created his own personal language on the tenor saxophone, with an emphasis on polytonal and asymmetrical phrasing, as well as extending the range and sonic ability of the instrument. He does this with constant emphasis and study of the overtone series, and the generation of multiphonics from the application of this process. He is currently teaching Fellowship students at the Brubeck Institute at the University of Pacific. His association with saxophonist Marco Eneidi led to working relationships with musicians such as Glen Spearmann, Matthew Goodheart, Damon Smith, and eventually Cecil Taylor.
