That Situated Trio

John Schott, guitar
Matthew Wright, interactive electronics
David Wessel, interactive electronics

John Schott moved to the Bay Area in 1988 from his hometown Seattle, where
he studied with jazz legends Julian Priester and Gary Peacock and classical
composer Bun-Ching Lam. John is a member of the groove-jazz band T. J. Kirk,
nominated for a Grammy for their 1997 release "If Four Was One." Among many
other recordings, he has four CDs under his own leadership, most recently
"Shuffle Play: Elegies For The Recording Angel." His avant folk-jazz-blues
band, The Typical Orchestra, plays frequently around the Bay Area. He lives
in Berkeley with his partner Naomi and their son Ezra.

David Wessel is the director of the UC Berkeley Center for New Music and Audio Technologies (CNMAT), and an expert on music perception and cognition and on the use of computer-based instruments for live improvised performance. He is particularly interested in live-performance computer music where improvisation plays an essential role.

Matthew Wright is CNMAT's Music Systems Designer and has over ten years' experience creating and playing custom computer-based musical instruments. He puts together hardware and software, and writes a lot of software, to make music. His research interests mostly have to do with interactive live performance.
