Charles Shriner has been a full time musician for 40 years. During that time he has worked as an arranger, session player and instrumentalist touring with numerous internationally known performers. He has been the guiding force in many projects including The Genes, Mr. Presto, dRachEmUsiK and Faux Pas Quartet. Over time he has produced artists in diverse genres including jazz, techno-industrial, classical, country, hip hop, and everything in-between. As a composer and sound designer he has created the music and sound design for world-class museum installations and planetarium shows in addition to work for film, video, dance troupes, and theater. About ten years ago Charles began focusing exclusively on his personal compositions and performances, primarily as the solo project "dRachEmUsiK" and later to include "Faux Pas Quartet". Both projects have been well received by critics and listeners. Additionally he is the owner of MCSD Studio and NetLabel. He has a strong interest in promoting community and opportunity for experimental musicians. One way he has done that is to be a co-founder and driving force of the Indiana Electro-Music Group - an off shoot of the main electro-music.com community- now in its fourth year. He hosts and performs a weekly streaming radio show and podcast "Music from last Thursday" on radio.electro-music.com featuring the musicians of the Faux Pas Quartet with frequent guest performers and composers. An additional passion is helping musicians develop skills and abilities as improvisational performers. Charles has created a series of day-long workshops on free-form improvisation which incorporate his training and facilitation skills in Jungian based experiential emotional work.
Joo Won Park wants to make everyday sound beautiful and strange so that everyday becomes beautiful and strange. He performs with toys, kitchenware, vegetables, umbrellas, and other nonmusical objects by digitally processing their sounds. He also makes compositions using field recordings, sine waves, and any other sources that he can record or synthesize. Joo Won draws inspirations from listening to Maryland swamps, Philadelphia skyscrapers, his 4-year-old son's play, and other soundscapes surrounding him.# vimeo.com/125415372 Uploaded 46 Plays 1 Like 0 Comments

Materials Used: Crown Royal, ice cubes, chopstick, Korg CM-100, Audix f9, MacBook Pro running SuperCollider
How It Was Made: When blocks of ice on liquid hit a resonant surface (such as glass or mug), I hear clear chime-like sound. This sonic experience is enhanced with amplitude-triggered synthetic tones. Whenever an ice cube hits the glass, the sound is picked up by the contact microphone and it triggers an electronic tone with randomized pitch.# vimeo.com/72733684 Uploaded 117 Plays 1 Like 2 Comments
From 100 Strange Sounds Project (100strangesounds.com)
Materials Used: metronomes, Audix f9, Macbook Pro, MOTU 4Pre, SuperCollider
How it was made:Sound of two metronomes clicking in different BPM is fed to the computer. It acts an amplitude envelope (think of a gate plug-in) for an algorithmically generated harmonic progression in e minor.
Inspiration: Ligeti Symphonic Poem for 100 Metronomes# vimeo.com/56654632 Uploaded 88 Plays 2 Likes 0 Comments
