Harry Smith (1923-1991) and Jordan Belson (1926-2011) were legendary experimental filmmakers who met in Berkeley in the late 1940s, and together developed remarkable independent bodies of work in film, painting, and recorded sound. Influenced by hermeticism, alchemy and the occult, they were both devotees of Kandinsky’s principles of Non-Objective painting and carried these interests into films. Both were pioneering figures in the development of light shows and psychedelic art.

Garth Hudson was a member of The Band and is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. His solo album, “The Sea to the North,” appeared in 2001. He continues to perform and record with artists including Willie Nelson, Neko Case, Cowboy Junkies, the North-Mississippi All Stars, and others. His wife of thirty-five years is Sister Maud Hudson, a remarkable and versatile singer who has performed with Norah Jones, Albert Collins, Paul Butterfield, Dr. John, and others.

High Water is multi-instrumentalist Will Epstein (keyboards, alto and soprano sax, electronics and vocals) who has released numerous albums and EPs on the Other People label. He has composed soundtracks for feature films and shorts, as well as artist videos, and recently composed electronic music for live dance performances at the Met Breuer (Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York). He is a regular presence on the electronic dance music scene, and the New York jazz/improvisation scene.

Peter Silberman is a songwriter, vocalist and guitarist best known for his rock band The Antlers, and numerous solo records including the 2017 release “Impermanence.”
