About the performers:
Francisco Eme is originally from Mexico City currently living and working in San Diego, CA. Francisco is a composer and multimedia artist. He creates music, sound and multimedia installations, interventions and performances.
His work is driven by a deep observation of the culture he lives in, the social interactions and everyday situations. He strives to start a conversation with the audience concerning relevant issues of our time: art, society, technology and science blend together in his practice.
Joe Cantrell is a digital artist specializing in sound art, installations, and performances inspired by the implications of technological objects and practices. By using the physical remnants of these processes as raw materials, his work investigates the incessant acceleration of technological production, ownership, and obsolescence. He has performed and installed at numerous venues in the US and abroad, and has been honored with grants by New Music USA and the Creative Capital foundation, among others.
Joe holds a BFA in music technology from Cal Arts, an MFA in digital arts and new media from UC Santa Cruz and a PhD in music from UC San Diego.
John Jolley is a born and raised San Diegan musician and DJ who's been performing locally for 15 years. A gigging musician since high school, John left the UC Riverside music program to join and tour with local rock group Hargo, and went on to host, organize, and perform at several weekly and monthly local electronic music events, including Radiation at The Stage (now Atomic) and Acid Varsity at Kava Lounge. A lifelong synthesizer enthusiast, John performs live synth music solo and with the trio Warranty Void. A frequent performer at local festivals and undergrounds, John's DJing tends towards the experimental and rarely is confined to specific genres or tempos. Having just joined local industrial group Shaolin Signal on bass guitar, and with Acid Varsity having moved to Ken Club following the closing of Kava Lounge, fans and curious parties should have many opportunities to experience his playing in 2022 and beyond.
Nathan Hubbard’s solo music is an amalgam of his work as an improviser, composer and instrument builder. Using acoustic and amplified instruments and a wide range of electronics, Hubbard creates a soundworld of multiple layers, where the music changes definitions of form, shape and outcome. This music has been presented in a wide variety of contexts, from concert halls and festivals to freeway underpasses and desolate mountain roads, and is documented on the recordings Born On Tuesday (2004, Circumvention Music), Blind Orchid (2007, Accretions Records), as well as a two volume compendium of live performances entitled Cascadia Calling (live solo works 2000-2014) Volumes One and Two.
Pablo Dodero is an experimental musician from Tijuana, Mexico. He is currently pursuing a Ph.D at UCSD in Integrative Studies. He performs and releases music under the monikers Les Temps Barbares (ambient / noise) and Adiós Mundo Cruel (techno) using mainly hardware synthesizers and drum machines.
