and I'm looking forward to adding video to their music on Dec 1.

Daniel Levin was born in 1974 in Burlington, Vermont. He began
playing the cello at age six, and studied classical music intensively
through adolescence. During this period he attended the Walnut Hill
School for the Arts, the Mannes College of Music, and the New England
Conservatory of Music. A chance experience improvising with a dancer
at the New Arts Festival in Fort Meyers, Florida in the summer of
1993 inspired him to alter his view of himself as a musician: not as
an interpreter of the works of early European masters, but as a
composer and improviser, who would create his own music, interpreting
his experience of the world around him. Since then, he has had
opportunities to work with many major improvisers and composers in
the creative music world: Borah Bergman, Mark Dresser, Joe Morris,
Rob Brown, Joe & Mat Maneri, Tim Berne, J.D. Parran, Warren Smith,
Satoshi Takeishi, Joe McPhee, Joe Giardullo, Taylor Ho Bynum, Bhob
Rainey, Tom Rainey, Roy Campbell, Frode Gjerstad, Sabir Mateen, Billy
Bang, Jason Hwang, William Parker, and many others. Venues in which
he has performed include The Vision Festival (NYC), The New Orleans
Jazz Festival, JVC Jazz Festival (NYC), XM Satellite Radio, WGBH FM
(Boston), The Knitting Factory, Tonic, CBGB's Gallery, The Brecht
Forum, Cornelia Street Cafe, Barbes, Vision Club Series, and
Roulette. Daniel has performed professionally in several other genres
including: Klezmer music with Hankus Netsky, contemporary
compositions for solo cello such as Joe Maneri's microtonal
Sharafuddin bYah-Yah Maneri Makhdum Ul-Mulk, and large ensemble
pieces, including Lou Harrison's Concerto for Violin, Piano, and
Orchestra with the NYC-based Alarm Will Sound.

Alban Bailly's first adventure of music making began with rock in his
native France. Music lessons with Eric Le Lann and Cesarius Alvim in
Rennes opened him to jazz and free improvisation in the late
nineties. Together with percussionist Loup Barraud, Alban formed
Ghenso Project and the two traveled to Morocco to study Arabic music
in 2001. Under the instruction of Marrakchi Master Mohammed El Quadi,
Alban practiced classical guitar and oud. While attending Music
Academy in Nancy, Alban came upon a world of free improvisation.
Since 2002, he has collaborated and performed with Sebastien Coste,
Camille Perrin, Louis-Michel Marion, Claire Cooper, Marit Schechte,
Dominique Repecaud, Chris Heenan and many others. Performances at
Musique Action festival, Theatre du Saulcy, MJC Lillebonne , France ,
Belgium and Germany . Newfound interest in gypsy jazz music, learned
the gypsy music with gypsy local guitarists and founded the "Meri
Wago" gypsy swing jazz trio. He continued his pursuit of eastern
European music by playing traditional Balkan music in Novi Sad
(Serbia). Alban landed in the USA in 2005 and now calls Philadelphia
his home. He frequently performs with Jack Wright and plays actively
with many musicians (Evan Lipson, Dave Smolen, John Berndt) and
dancers (Nicole Bindler, Eun Jung Gonzales...) with the guitar or
