Felix Kubin, messenger of exploding lungs, lives and works against gravitation. At the age of 12 he started composing electronic 4-track music. His activities comprise futurist pop, electroacoustic and chamber orchestra music, radio plays, lectures, workshops and his label Gagarin Records. He has been involved with the noise project Klangkrieg, the communist singing group Liedertafel Margot Honecker and the tetchy teenage bands Die Egozentrischen 2 and x2. Recently, he works a lot with the ensemble Integrales.
Eric D. Johnson is a singer, songwriter, producer, film score composer and festival producer. He is most well known as the front man and sole permanent member of the band Fruit Bats, and as a multi-instrumentalist with The Shins and Califone.
In the late nineties, Johnson was an instructor at Chicago's Old Town School of Folk Music, teaching banjo and guitar. He also fronted his own short-lived space-rock outfit, I Rowboat, and had a solo four-track project called Fruit Bats.
In 2000, he began playing in the experimental folk ensemble Califone. The following year Fruit Bats' debut Echolocation was released on Perishable Records, Califone's label. Over the next decade, Fruit Bats would release several subsequent records on the Sub Pop imprint, and Johnson would continue his role as a supporting player with artists such as Sally Timms, Ugly Casanova, Vetiver, and The Shins. In 2013, Johnson announced that he would be retiring the Fruit Bats name with plans to continue performing under his own name.
Johnson founded the Huichica Music Festival in Sonoma, CA in 2010, in partnership with Jeff Bundschu of Gundlach Bundschu Winery. The annual event has featured Fruit Bats, Vetiver, J Mascis and Blitzen Trapper among others.
Johnson's film scoring credits include Ceremony, the 2010 feature debut of writer/director Max Winkler, starring Uma Thurman and Michael Angarano and the 2011 movie Our Idiot Brother.
