Seth Josel has reconstructed William Hellermann's 1978 work Tremble based on a concert review by Tom Johnson, photographs, and an archival recording. He couples its European premiere with closely related works by contemporary composers Nicolas Collins and Daniela Fantechi.

Nicolas Collins is a composer, researcher, and performer. One of the earliest adopters of microcomputers for live performance, Collins also makes use of homemade electronic circuitry and conventional acoustic instruments. His book "Handmade Electronic Music: The Art of Hardware Hacking" (Routledge) has influenced emerging electronic music worldwide.

Daniela Fantechi is a composer and co-founder of Blutwurst, a collective of musicians focused on radical improvisation and on the performance of contemporary composers’ graphic scores. Since 2013 the collective began to work on its own projects, composing works entirely dedicated to the electro-acoustic exploration of unisons and drones. Their work Tenebrae was released by Tempo Reale Collection in May 2016, and their work Yoğurt was released on vinyl by Negative Days in December 2016.
