With Das Audit she has released an EP and live cassette featuring vocalist Malcolm Mooney. Additional recordings have appeared on compilations by Untergang Institut, PAN (w. James K), and Sky Walking (w. Dan Fox).

**Kayla Guthrie**
Multidisciplinary artist Kayla Guthrie grew up in Canada and has been based in NYC since 2008. Her 12" EP Blue (Mixed Media, 2015) was described by a review in The Wire to "occupy a twilight zone both lyrically and if Guthrie's thoughts and words coincide with an atmosphere that she contingently occupies for this moment." Its release was accompanied by a series of gallery performances at Greene Naftali (New York), Contemporary Art Daily (Chicago), Massimo de Carlo (London), Sandy Brown (Berlin), and Kunstakademie Düsseldorf's 2015 graduation ceremony as well as a residency and performance at Electro Müller, the former site of Kraftwerk's Kling Klang Studios in Düsseldorf.

Her visual art and musical performances have been exhibited or occurred at Real Fine Arts, Bodega, Off Vendome, JTT, The Whitney Museum of American Art (in collaboration with Nate Lowman's "Homage To Jay Defeo", 2013), MINI/Goethe Institut Curatorial Residency, Signal, Basilica Hudson, Pioneer Works, Knockdown Center, Deli Gallery, SADE LA, and others.

**Praxis Cat (with Abe Mamet)**
PraxisCat is the experimental electronic solo project from Christine Paluch. Christine is a DC based composer using synthesizers, code, and other musical instruments to explore the relationship between synesthesia and urban spaces.

Abe Mamet is a horn player from Denver, CO. He has played horn for 15 years, jazz for 11, and creative free improvisation for 3 years. He has studied jazz with Keith Oxman in Denver, Morris Kliphuis (Amsterdam) virtually over Skype, Franz Söllner in Vienna, and Manuel Collazo Llantin at Colorado College. He is excited to find out whether free improvisation is vertically deep, horizontally expansive, or something in between.

**Sarah Hughes & Nate Scheible**
Sarah Hughes is an alto saxophonist, composer, improviser, educator, and art adventurer hailing from Maryland. She obtained her MM in Jazz Saxophone at the New England Conservatory in May of 2015 and currently freelances in and around Maryland, DC, Virginia, and New York.
