Leila Bordreuil is a Brooklyn based cellist and composer from Aix-en-Provence, France. She works in the realm of Noise music, improvisation, New Music and sound-art. Her cello playing is often improvised, and mainly focuses on texture variations and a collage of phantom overtones and pitched utterances. Through an original vocabulary of extended techniques, preparations, and imaginative amplification methods, her instrument is used as an abstract resonant body to challenge conventional cello practice. Her composed works draw from a similar texture-based musical aesthetic, but also focus on the relationship between sound and space. In her site-specific electro-acoustic compositions, architecture is the foundation of the piece and musicality arises from an organized spacialization of sound.

As per the tradition of improvised music, Leila has maintained a very active concert schedule sharing the stage with a wide range of artists including Marina Rosenfeld, Eli Keszler, Tom Chiu (Flux quartet), Anthony Coleman, Peter Evans, Nate Wooley, SENYAWA, C. Spencer Yeh, Toshimaru Nakamura, Tetuzi Akiyama, Susan Alcorn, Ingrid Laubrock, Zeena Parkins, Bill Nace, Lee Ranaldo, Weasel Walter, Kim Gordon, Chris Corsano, and more. Notable venues where she has performed include The Whitney Museum, The Kitchen, MoMA PS1, Issue Project Room, the Stone, Roulette, Pioneer Works, Cafe Oto (London, UK), All Ears Festival (Oslo, NO), Ausland (Berlin, DE), Ftarri (Tokyo, JP), the Heresy Series for Women in Sound (Manila, PHL), and many basements across the U.S. ​Leila is a 2017 MacDowell Fellow in Composition, and was a 2016 artist-in-residence at Issue Project Room.

Kamyar Arsani is a multi-instrumentalist, singer and poet, known for his spiritual Daf performances (Persian frame drum). Born and raised in Tehran, Iran, he currently resides in Washington D.C. As musician and teacher, he also spends time with population with Autism to teach them strategies to cope and progress in society. Kamyar's musical mission is to spread cultural awareness and unity by mixing contemporary musical trends with traditional Persian folk music. Ten years ago, Kamyar and his family migrated to the United States around the same time that Iran's Green Revolution was occurring. His songs and performances are very much inspired by the people of Iran and their history of struggle and protest.As his dedication to all who struggle for freedom, he produced his first solo album in 2015, entitled «No Freedom.» With songs played on Guitar, ukelele and melodica. Kamyar also plays in other collaborations including Time is Fire. But that doesn’t stop his thirst for learning wider ray of sounds and spaces. Kamyar Arsani's second solo album «Voices in the Dark» is a a Daf and Avaz album focusing on Sufi and Iranian traditional music repertoire while blending in contemporary punk and electronic influences.
