Expo ‘70 is the main driving improvisational essence of Justin Wright. Having started the project in Los Angeles in 2003, Wright has pushed his project to new levels, releasing a number of albums as cdr’s and 2 full-length albums. Expo ‘70’s first album “Animism”, which debuted in 2007 on Kill Shaman, is an eclectic mix of krautrock, ambient drone, space exploration and minimal compositions. Comparisons range from Brian Eno, Ash Ra Tempel, A.R. & Machines, SunnO))) and Earth, but not directly sounding like any of those artists in their entirety.
Ancient Ocean is the solo project of Brooklyn by way of Nashville guitar explorer, John Bohannon. — Hailing from the American South, he has honed a unique style of blissed-out ambient/drone meets americana-rooted psychedelia that have evoked comparisons to Kawabata Makoto’s solo works, Eno/Fripp, Robin Guthrie, and more.
Having released titles on Expo 70’s Sonic Meditations, Woodsmans’ Fire Talk, Rubber City Noise, Kimberly Dawn, and more. He has shared the stage with a diverse crowd including Tony Conrad, Tom Carter, Jeff the Brotherhood, CAVE, Danava, Lower Dens, Prince Rama, and played festivals such as SXSW, CMJ, and Sonic Circuits.
DuChamp is an Italian scientist, musician, curator based in Berlin. A true pedal junkie, she make drones using accordion, bass guitar, baritone guitar, keyboard and voice. Her attempt is re-creating the sense of bliss of the hair dryer sound that she used to hear when she was a child. She performed several time in Berlin, and in Italy, Turkey and Poland.
