ADRAINE's cello work 
borrows from a rough-
hewn driven Central-
Asian spike fiddle 
inspired playing (with 
incorporation of string 
harmonics in it's melodic 
structures) along with 
bowing, pluck and 
striking of the instru-
ment with the rhythms of 
Caribbean/Cuban, Central 
and South America, Sub-
Sharan Africa, along with 
American Rock and Soul.
Her non-performing time 
includes graduate work in 
Ethnomusicology and she 
hosts a radio program 
highlighting world music 
and also writes reviews 
for a website addressing 
popular culture.

MARK's drumming ex-
perience in a range 
of bands in rock, 
punk, and metal, thru 
straight ahead to free 
jazz, and his ex-
perience in experimental 
and abstract noise, 
places him squarely in 
the centerof the pulse  
of this NullWave sound... 

ELIJAH's adding to the over-
all lexicon of his instru-
ment (the 6-string frettless 
electric bass) through sonic 
explorations that 
bridge accepted modern 
extended technique and 
experimentalism and noise 
elements...Eli still maintains 
a lock on the rhythmic and 
harmonic and compositional 
vocabulary and feel of the 
jazz and free jazz 

KERSTI's training/interest in 
cultural anthropology, love 
of indigenous musics and 
performance experience in 
the punk, newwave, and jazz 
genres, all combine to 
bring a distinctly post-
modern meets indigenous 
roots feel to her saxophone 
and flute work as well as 
her use of North African 
reed instruments. She 
provides a distinct 'ancient-
modern' melodic element of 
our work.

MIKA - Equal parts home-
grown rough skumbletronic 
guitar lines, jazz-funk flute 
playing, and a formal 
background in electronic 
and electro-acoustic music 
composition, along with 
his research into 
computer process based 
arts and music.. add 
to the diverse nature of 
our sound and performance

PATRICK's incorporation of a 
fornal approach to drumming 
with an experimental flare 
for exploring textural 
aspects of rhythms allows 
he and Mark to cover a wide 
range of atpmospherics and 
rhythmic interactions which 
define the Feral Luggage 

COLLEEN's Background in 
experimental composition 
and improvised performance 
augments her unique cello 
style and adds to the over-
all cinematic soundscape
side of Feral Luggage.
