Miya Masaoka is a composer, sound artist and musician based in New York City. Classically trained, her work operates at the intersection of spatialized sound, frequency and perception, performance, social and historical references. Whether recording inside physical objects or inside a plant or the human body, within architecturally resonant spaces or outdoor resonant canyons, she creates incongruencies that feed the paradox of the contemporary condition.

James Ilgenfritz has been a part of New York’s experimental music community for ten years, working with Anthony Braxton, John Zorn, Elliott Sharp, & Anthony Coleman, as well as composers Lukas Ligeti, Pauline Oliveros, Annie Gosfield, JG Thirlwell, Karin Rehnqvist, Ted Hearne, & Gordon Beeferman. He is also active as a bandleader, sideman, & composer.
