Action Research #178:

Baker-Barganier Duo
(St. Petersburg, FL)


"The Baker-Barganier Duo formed in September 2016 when multi-instrumentalist Erich Barganier joined forces with New Renaissance artist Elizabeth A. Baker to create a duo that combines spectral sonic landscapes, motion and visual art. Fusing toy piano, mandolin, experimental electronics, kinetic motion and more together, the ensemble explores original sonic landscapes and blurs the boundaries of experimental, classical and progressive music to create a unique experience."


Preston Beebe
(Montreal, Canada)
"A composer and percussionist who uses technology at the forefront of his work. His artistic approach involves audio feature extraction, organic processes, microscopic and invisible elements and how they interact in space and time."

Jill Burton
"Extended vocalist/ composer/ holistic/ sound/ movement/ energy/ performance artist JILL BURTON was a professional ballerina, modern dancer, dance teacher/accompanist, and free improvisor in Gainesville FL during the 1970s. In 1978, she traveled to San Francisco where she met for the first time her life-long friends and collaborators Davey Williams and LaDonna Smith, and connected for the first time to a larger, world-wide community of free improvisors. She lived in Manhattan's East Village from 1981-1991 where she was very active as part of the downtown experimental music/dance/performance art scene; including co-founding, w/Rain Worthington, the band HIZOHI (which also included Jane Scarpantoni, Yuval Gabay, and Kumiko Kimoto). She has been privileged to work with and learn from artists from all over the world, including the Peking Opera, the Noh Theater, and Alaska Native Tlingit dancers and storytellers. She has studied and practiced hands-on healing and energy work for over twenty years, always incorporating this into her performance work. In other words, she is a "world-class, visionary badass". Current projects include Jill's INFERNO, an octet a capella operetta inspired by Dante."

Action Research 176

Action Research #176:
A benefit show for Ed Cooper aka Projexorcism

"On September 14th, Ed suffered a stroke and brain bleed and was air lifted to Baptist Hospital in Winston Salem, NC. The amount of work and financial responsibility has consumed his family and their lives. Ed has spent almost 3 months in ICU where he continues to face many complications. The goal is to have Ed transferred to a room where he will receive intense therapy before being released. Once released, Shannon (his girlfriend of 15 years), will be completely responsible for his care- physically and financially. During these past 3 months, Shannon has been unable to work as she spends every single day with Ed as he continues towards recovery. Shannon and Max, their 5 year old son, could use any support you can offer. Any help, even after Ed returns home, would be greatly appreciated as he has a long road to recovery."
