Ben Seretan and David Moore

DAVID MOORE, performing solo, is the composer and piano player behind Bing & Ruth, an ambient, largely acoustic chamber ensemble that put out one of the best records of this year.

BEN SERETAN is a guitar player and a singer who performs in a wide variety of formations - solo, duo, trio, full band, etc. He spent the last two summers in southeast Alaska and got to know the out-of-tune pianos that came limping by boat to the small island he was living on. They whispered soft, sweet things to him and tonight he'll tell their secrets. He also put out a record this year which rules and is full of stampedes of drums and launched bee-hives of guitars:
