James Jackson Toth appears under the moniker Wooden Wand, and in countless collaborations, on over a hundred records, and in 2015 founded, with his wife Leah, the experimental label Footfalls Records. William Fowler Collins is composer/musician and recording artist whose work explores and synthesizes both musical and extra-musical elements. Collins has released music on the SIGE, Type, Handmade Birds, Daymare, Digitalis and Root Strata labels. Current projects include collaborations with Aaron Bradford Turner (Isis, Old Man Gloom, Sumac) and Raven Chacon (in Mesa Ritual).

Collins and Toth are touring in support of their debut collaborative release of "postmodern bucolic drone" ... “the soundtrack to an imaginary landscape wherein various 'actual' locales are thematically superimposed atop one another to suggest new, alien terrain.”

Beguiling Isles - Corum (Psychic Sounds / Maine) & False Sir Nicholas (Nonlocal Society / Chile) perform as a multimedia duet "constructing a mind-melting psychopharmacological vision wherein rhythms and melodies ooze into and out of focus." / “Dense and eerie fantasy scenarios forgathered continuously in bleary metamorphic pieces.”

Tarotplane is the solo project of PJ Dorsey from Baltimore. His First release on the acclaimed Aguirre Records label presents continuous swirls of heady sounds that take listeners on deep excursions of wonder and beauty. "absolutely recommended for fans of classic Kosmische music, proto-ambient works as well as challenging post-rockin’ adventures"--Igloo Magazine

Halo Valley - a yeti in the wilderness of sound.
