Solo Soprano Sax & Inuit Poems / TV audio processing noise electronics.

Steve Nelson-Raney has been mostly associated with free improvisation and the soprano and sopranino saxophones, although he has used other instruments and is adept in different idioms. His sax playing is closely related to Evan Parker, John Butcher, and Phil Hargreaves. Nelson-Raney, is now teaching theory and jazz studies at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

A New York City native, Matthew Ostrowski has worked as a composer, performer and installation artist, exploring work with music, multimedia, video and theater. Using digital tools and formalist techniques to engage with quotidian materials — sonic, physical, and cultural – Ostrowski’s work explores the liminal space between the virtual and phenomenological worlds.
