ANNETTE KREBS (b. 1967) studied classical guitar in Frankfurt/Main, Germany, and has lived in Berlin since 1993.  As a freelance guitarist, she has worked intensively in the crossover area between improvisation and composition, exploring the possibilities of the electro-acoustic guitar with regard to sound, structure, noise, and the mixing of materials, and space. Various preparation methods are used to produce noises and sounds that are then enlarged through the use of sometimes high levels of amplification, so they can be used as musical material.

Collaborations include duo projects with Andrea Neumann, Taku Sugimoto, and Alessandro Bosetti, Phosphor (featuring Burkhard Beins, Alessandro Bosetti, Axel Dörner, Robin Hayward, Andrea Neumann, Michael Renkel & Ignaz Schick), plus additional projects with Kaffe Matthews, Burkhard Stangl, and Christoph Kurzmann. She has performed in various concerts and festivals in Germany, Austria, Denmark, France, Japan, United Kingdom, Slovenia, and Norway.

ERNESTO DIAZ-INFANTE (b. 1968) lives and works in San Francisco, CA. He is an active performer, improviser, and composer of instrumental chamber music; he has had performances and radio broadcasts all over the world. Diaz-Infante has performed/collaborated with numerous musicians including Jeff Arnal, Dan DeChellis, Bruce Eisenbeil, Chris Forsyth, Philip Gayle, Boris Hauf, Bill Horist, Bob Marsh, Dick Metcalf, Donald Miller, Kurt Newman, Nmperign, Rev.99, Blaise Siwula, W.O.O Revelator and Jack Wright. He is the curator of the Creative Music Thursdays series at the Luggage Store Gallery in San Francisco and co-founder of The San Francisco Alternative Music Festival (SFALT) in San Francisco, California.

CHRIS FORSYTH (b. 1973) is a Brooklyn, NY based electric guitarist engaged in exploring the possibilities of improvisation in music. He has been working in New York City and performing throughout the United States and Europe with multiple ensembles since 1996, including a performance at the 2001 Philadelphia Fringe Festival, two appearances at the Big Sur (CA) Experimental Music Festival (1999 & 2001), and Improvised & Otherwise Festival (2002).  His ongoing, long-term projects include the groups All Time Present (NYC), W.O.O. Revelator (NYC), and a duo with pianist/acoustic guitarist Ernesto Diaz-Infante (San Francisco). In addition, he has performed in NYC with, among others, Loren Mazzacane Connors, Brian Moran, Greg Kelley, Assif Tsahar, Daniel Carter, Gary Smith, Dan Dechellis, Jeff Arnal, Tony Bevan, and as a solo curated by Derek Bailey.  He was also the curator of the Bunker Annex Series of improvised and experimental music at the Knitting Factory in New York City, and a co-curator of the Improvised & Otherwise Festival of Sound and Form, an annual three day event in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

"an intimist, minimal and highly sensitive kind of music."
Le Silence des Sirenes

"The result ranges from the rustling of stripped sound, layered together in a mass, to static layered noise eruptions. On the whole it is a process that keeps shifting, maintaining a certain level of sound that is controllable and explorable."
Remote Induction

"bristling swathes of hollowly humming, churning electronics"
Nick Cain, Opprobrium

ON ERNESTO DIAZ-INFANTE & CHRIS FORSYTH: "(Ernesto Diaz-Infante and Chris Forsyth) first got together in 1999, but to listen to their highly intelligent and effective electro-acoustic music one might think that they've been on the same wavelength for a good deal longer than that; I personally would have guessed at somewhere between two and three thousand years."
Walter Horn, Signal to Noise

"The dialogue established between the two musicians is convincing, their sound palette enough varied to sustain the attention. Both have a propensity to land on tonal islands in the flow of free improv, which gives them the power to destabilize and charm. Recommended. (****)"
François Couture, All Music Guide (

"This record offers an extremely creative take on string music in all its rich variety. The ideas that work on Wires and Wooden Boxes are timelessly beautiful."
Nils Jacobson, All About Jazz (

"There are right’ and wrong’ ways to play, depending on the approach. Ernesto Diaz-Infante and Chris Forsyth play the wrong way.  All the time.  Most often, the results are spectacular."
Jon Worley, Aiding and Abetting

ON ALL TIME PRESENT (Chris Forsyth, Toshi Makihara, Rich Gross, Ethan Sklar, David Gould):
"Their skewered rock sounds like Twin Infinitives era Royal Trux, even as the heady, feedback soaked passages carry them so far across the map they could pass for Joseph Holbrooke. It's that good."
David Keenan, Wire (March 2001)

"Fascinating- a constant parade of brief, imagistic moments that add up to a very compelling group language."
Cadence, July 2001

"improvisations firmly anchored in the sound of stretched steel strings.  No tonal washes or FX swill here: the trio dares to deal in actual notes and speedy melodic sleight of hand."
David Keenan, Wire (July 1999)

"Forsyth, Gross and Sklar play together with remarkable variety and listening. This could book-end bravely with Hendrix's Star-Spangled Banner."
Doug Lang, Coda

"He's a big talent."
Walter Horn, Signal to Noise

"...Diaz-Infante breaks down the creative process into its most basic elements of man and instrument."
Scott Menhinick, Signal to Noise
