Michelle Moeller (b. St. Louis MO) is a composer, performer, and educator based in Oakland, CA. Her musical practice is ever evolving, guided by patient curiosity and a natural resistance to singular identity. Drawing from both a foundational lyricism and a penchant for dissonant textures, she uses live signals, custom effects, and computer synthesis to build intricate electroacoustic systems. She holds an MFA from Mills College. michellemoeller.com

Born in San Jose and living in San Francisco’s Parkside neighborhood, Dev Bhat is a musician, composer, sound designer, and writer. He has previously performed in bands that could be characterized as industrial rock, shoegaze, hardcore punk, instrumental rock, and ambient. Dev’s solo work as shipwreck detective features synthetic and organic textures using analog synthesizers, old tape recorders, samplers, loopers, and effects processors. His performances are built on structured improvisation, and he draws inspiration from nature, RPG video games, sci-fi films, 90s anime, and speculative fiction. shipwreckdetective.bandcamp.com
