Joe Moffett / Brad Henkel Speaker World: John Welsh / Derek Baron Angela Morris

Brad Henkel and Joe Moffett combine forces as a duo that explores issues of symmetry and simulacra in improvisation. Employing extended techniques, tape recordings, and amplification, the ensemble takes on realms hidden linkages and subconscious tendencies.

Speaker World is a duo of Derek Baron and John Welsh. Derek Baron is a musician from Chicago, currently based in New York City, where he is a part of the electroacoustic bricolage group Causings. His solo music uses found sound, homemade processors, and speech acts to open up possibilities of musical spacing. John Welsh is a guitar-centered experimental musician and composer based in New York City. He has released solo music on The Freedom Garden tape label and is a member of the collective group Causings. He received his Master's in Composition from Wesleyan University.

Morris has performed across the US, Canada, the UK, and Europe. A multi-instrumentalist, she has contributed saxophone, violin, flute, clarinet, and vocals to jazz/avant/improvised, indie/pop, and new music performances and recordings. Morris received her Masters degree from the City University of New York where she studied with Darcy James Argue. She is a Canada Council for the Arts grant recipient and member of the BMI Composers’ Workshop.
