Nava studied percussion under Eugene Novotney at Humboldt State University before attending Mills College, where she graduated with a degree in music performance in 2013 and studied with William Winant, Fred Frith, Maggi Payne, Zeena Parkins, and David Bernstein.
Omar Akrouche is a multi-instrumentalist musician, composer and audio engineer based out of San Francisco. As a self-recording artist, his approach to making music is equally inspired by sound as it is from visual mediums, such as analog photography, filmmaking, and painting— with William Basinski meaning as much to him as Richard Diebenkorn. Omar frequently collaborates with friends and artists to produce their musical ideas, he values the role of the curator in making records, and believes in a cross-disciplinary process that engages with more than just the music.
