Benoît Pioulard
Since a young age, Thomas Meluch has been fascinated by natural sounds and the textures of decay. He began playing piano before his feet could reach the pedals, and for more than a decade has sought to create a unique sonic environment by combining remnants of pop song structures with the lushness and unpredictability of field recordings. A veteran drummer of a half dozen bands and an avid collector of instruments and analog devices, Meluch relies on guitar and voice as the bases for his work as Benoît Pioulard.

Celebrated violist Nadia Sirota will perform works from her sophomore album Baroque, the follow up to her debut First Things First (a New York Times album of the year). The album is predominantly for multi-tracked viola and electronic textures, and features songs written expressly for Sirota by Nico Muhly, Daníel Bjarnason, Paul Corley, Judd Greenstein, Missy Mazzoli, and Shara Worden. Baroque was produced by Paul Evans and composer and Bedroom Community founder Valgeir Sigurðsson at his famous Greenhouse Studios in Iceland. Baroque will be released March 26th on New Amsterdam Records in the US and March 25th on Bedroom Community in the rest of the world.
Jeff Zeigler
Philadelphia-based musician, engineer and producer, who, in addition to playing in the band Arc in Round, and in a synthesizer and harp duo with harpist Mary Lattimore, plays solo on a mixture of electronics and textural guitar forming ambient compositions and traditional songs that are equal parts hypnotic and abrasive.
