"Miller played psych-guitar in SPROTON LAYER [1970], and alto sax with the art-punk version of DESTROY ALL MONSTERS [1977-78]
 
GKW put out several cassette releases [1982-94] expressing a minimalist who-gives-a-shit? form of esoteric performance.
 
Miller explored multiphonic guitar with Chicago’s DIRTY OLD MAN RIVER [1997-2000] continuing SOLO Performance into the 21 st Century.
 
Currently, Miller is composer/conductor for the 12-member SENSORIUM Saxophone Orchestra (www.sensoriumsaxophoneorchestra.com); NYC’s first full-on saxophone orchestra.

PIERCE WARNECKE
 
"Pierce Warnecke’s work stems from his interest in the effects of time on matter: modification, deterioration and disappearance.
Whether focus is on the purity of digital forms or the chaotic grit of natural objects, large scales of time and space or microscopic detail, the goal of Pierce’s work is to readapt existing materials into a parallel context where their signified meanings, symbols and cultural connections have become residual ghosts.
 
Sound works explore combinations of pure synthetic sounds, electronic interferences, field recordings and manipulations of found objects. Textural, drone, noise, electronic and improvised music are areas of interest, explored through solo works and collaborations. Video is created in real-time, recorded, or generated and uses found items and moments: data sets, organic matter and microscopic textures to create dense patterns and contrasting forms.
 
Born in California, Pierce studied and worked for 10 years in France before moving to Boston to attend the Berklee College of Music. He currently lives in Berlin where he is following a Meisterschüler Program at Universität der Kunst (UdK) under Dr. Alberto de Campo. He works as a MaxMSP programmer and sound designer, and co-curates the Emitter Micro festival and record label.
 
He has performed with artists such as Phill Niblock, Gino Robair, Louis Laurain, Yoann Durant and Pierre Borel and tours regularly in Europe and the US. He has presented his works in such places as Harvestworks (NY), GASP Gallery (Boston), Luggage Store Gallery (SF), AMODA (Austin), Le Labo (Toronto), Main d’Oeuvres (Paris), Ausland (Berlin) as well as festivals such as Boston Cyberarts, SXSW Interactive, Visionsonic, Optica, LPM, Mal au Pixel, Videoformes and more."
