The US debut of Deceh features members of Eleh and Srines. Deceh use analog modular synthesizers to reveal and utilize the harmonic content in acoustic instruments. These harmonics are paired with the ultra-high resolution of the Serge Modular system for a deep sonic experience in full fidelity. For this performance, Deceh will be assisted by Kevin Doria on shruti. Eleh's last performance at ISSUE in fall 2013 was called a "panegyric for the experiential properties of unusual sound frequencies and the power of modular synthesizers" by the New York Times.

Total Life is the solo project of Kevin Doria, founding member of the dronegaze band Growing. Total Life released a split with Deceh on Important in 2013, as well as two full-length albums with Important forthcoming. This fall, Total Life tours in support of Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

Minor Musics Japan opens with Ché-Shizu, an improv-folk group led by Chie Mukai. Since 1981 they have recontextualized folk instruments and electronics in spontaneous actions that are lyrical, compelling, and endearingly unpolished. Mukai also plays duo with LLILW GRAY, alias of No-Neck Blues Band's Keith Connolly.

The artistic alter ego of Tori Kudo, Maher Shalal Hash Baz are a fluid large ensemble of untrained musicians that create arresting indie-pop embracing error, structure, and structurelessness. Accordionist and vocalist à qui avec Gabriel creates stark, ethereal and whispering melodies evoking European folk.
