Ron Anderson is a multi-instrumentalist intuitive music maker who plays traditional instruments like the electric guitar, but will also use anything that can make a sound - including the recording studio. He has 57 recordings to his credit (with such acts as Molecules - Ruins - Guapo - Steve Buchanan...) and has performed in 16 different countries in North America, Europe and Asia. The new PAK album is released on Tzadik as part of their composer series.

PAS started in 1995 out of Brooklyn, NY, USA, driven by the creative talents of Robert L. Pepper working in the mediums of sound and video. Since then PAS has evolved into a collective including featuring guests such as ZEV!, Hati, Steve Beresford, Vultures Qt.... PAS have released 7 cd's and have been on various compilations + have toured extensively throughout Europe ad the United States. PAS curate events in New York such as Experi-MENTAL nights and the yearly Experi-MENTAL Festival.

David Tamura is a Multi-instrumentalist/Improvisor who performs on Tenor/Alto/Soprano saxophones/EWI/Guitar/Various Synths (Virus/Kawai K5000/Bent circuits). He has recorded with Charles K.Noyes, Von LMO, Ray Gallon, Boots Malleson, Maria Gil, and appears on numerous Experimental Jazz/Metal and Noise Bands. He is currently playing with "The JazzFakers", Zilmrah, Cloud Cloud, Ethereal, Espirit 220, and the Chonto/Brown/Tamura Trio.

Philippe Petit is interested in soundtracks; even if he creates original music he'd rather be introduced as a "musical travel agent" than a composer. PETIT uses a computer and synths to build up electronic layers, process acoustic and field recordings. To second the machine he likes to move various glasses, or percussive objects, and take advantage of vinyl material to fondle released sounds. A journalist for various magazines and radio as well as a musical activist, PETIT has celebrated his 25th year of sharing his musical passions as the man behind the cult labels Pandemonium Rdz. and BiP_HOp. PETIT has assembled what people call a dream-team of collaborators, often joining Lydia Lunch or Faust onstage, and worked with: Foetus, Edward Ka-Spel, Hugh Hopper (Soft Machine), Kumo, Scott McCloud (Girls Against Boys), Cosey Fanni Tutti, My Brightest Diamond, Sybarite, Pantaleimon, Graham Lewis (Wire), Barry Adamson, Scanner, Mira Calix, Kammerflimmer Kollektief, Guapo, Leafcutter John, Simon Fisher Turner, Jarboe and many more... Aside his solo works, PETIT is active in Strings Of Consciousness, does a duo with Lydia Lunch, and his collabs with Cosey Fanni Tutti (Throbbing Gristle) + the CD with James Johnston (Gallon Drunk/Bad Seeds/Faust) appeared on Dirter Promotions. These days he is working on duets with Eugene Robinson (from Oxbow) and Murcof...
