Andrew Weathers

Christina Carter was born in the bayou city of Houston, TX on November 19th, 1968, and co-founded Charalambides there in 1991.

Ever since, she has mined her own vein of sound-as-music utilizing extended improvisational vocal passages & has investigated the voice as vehicle for the ephemerality of the word through the immediacy of the sensing body, ground, lungs, throat, mouth, tongue & sky.

David Menestres is a bassist, composer, and writer currently living in the Piedmont region of North Carolina. David is the founder/leader of the Polyorchard ensemble and is the host/producer of Tone Science, a weekly two-hour radio show on taintradio.org since 2010.

Andrew Weathers is a composer and improviser originally from Chapel Hill, NC, currently based in Littlefield, TX. His music engages with notions of place, tradition, repetition, and spirit. He studied composition at UNC-Greensboro and electronic music at Mills College in Oakland, CA. A consistent presence in the underground music scene over the past decade, Andrew’s work covers a wide spectrum from solo acoustic guitar to the utopic future folk of Andrew Weathers Ensemble. He also performs and records regularly with Tethers, Real Life Rock & Roll Band, Satin Spar, and Common Eider, King Eider, among others. In addition to his busy performing schedule, Weathers helps run Full Spectrum Records and Other Minds Records, and works as a freelance mixing and mastering engineer.


After playing in bands like UN with Marcia Bassett (Double Leopards), Tara Burke began her solo project Fursaxa at the turn of the century. Taking a page out of Philadelphia's Ambient Consortium and the Bardo Pond school of acid-folk space exploration, Fursaxa also brings to mind elements of religious music, from church choirs to raga drones. Burke employs guitar, casio, Farfisa organ, accordian, dulcimer, effected vocals, drums, bells, flutes, and the kitchen sink without ever losing her otherworldly focus.
