About john mallia
John Mallia's compositional process is informed by spatial constructs and concepts, and a fascination with presence, ritual, and the thresholds standing between states of existence or awareness.

About katarina miljkovic
Composer Katarina Miljkovic has written for symphony orchestra, string orchestra, and various other groupings, including works for amplified saxophone, saxophone quartet, prepared piano, percussion, electric guitar, and computer generated sounds. Miljkovic's interest in the relationship of science, nature, and music led her to the mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot's essay "The Fractal Geometry of Nature" and self-similar complex structures. Her cycle based on this idea, Forest, for two prepared pianos and percussion, has been released by Sachimay Records.
