Guitarist Loren Connors was born in New Haven, Connecticut in 1949. Best known as a composer and improviser, Connors has issued over 50 guitar records on his own imprints (Daggett, St. Joan, Black Label) since the late 1970s and over two dozen on other labels across the globe. He has recorded under the names Guitar Roberts, Loren Mattei, Loren MazzaCane Connors and other variations. Connors' singular adpation of the blues is a distinct personal vision combining the Delta bottleneck sound and the ancestral blues voice (appearing as distortion, baying hounds or multi-tracked guitar), with hauntingly unexpected sounds. Outside of Connors' three decades of solo work, he has collaborated with Suzanne Langille, Jim O'Rourke, Darin Gray, Alan Licht, Christina Carter, Keiji Haino, San Agustin, Jandek and many others, as well as leading the group Haunted House.
Luciernaga is the guitar-centric ambient recording project of Joao M. Da Silva. Joao began making treated guitar recordings in 2010, after moving to the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. Under the Luciernaga alias, Joao has released a series of cassettes, vinyl, CD-Rs, and also provided music for video features on The New Yorker magazine website, the Stringer's End web series and, most recently, Circle In The Rock, a short film directed by Ellis Bahl and starring Brandon Sexton III.
