TRISTAN SHEPHERD

Tristan Shepherd is a composer, improviser and turntablist from Dearborn, MI currently based in Brooklyn, NY. His work includes installation pieces for multichannel audio, appearances as an improviser in group ensembles and compositions for solo turntable. Using a combination of modified records and custom dubplates as source material, his compositions consist of a sonic counterpoint and bricolage that hinge on the decontextualization and reanimation of the musical gestures 'frozen' on the records. Most recently, he curated "Incidental Music", an exhibition of site specific installations and performances at the Fragmental Museum's project space: a 4 story, 50,000 sq. ft. former zipper factory. Tristan has performed at Roulette Intermedium, Harvestworks, The Emily Harvey Foundation, MoMA PS1, and the Whitney Museum of American Art.

Leila Bordreuil is a cellist, composer and sound artist. At Bard College, she studied closely with Marina Rosenfeld, Alex Waterman, Joan Tower, and Richard Teitelbaum. Her work focuses on the study of sonic diffusion through the cello, composition and
installation work. Leila has performed with Marina Rosenfeld, Serge Tchernipin and Tristan Shepherd among others.
