Wind-Up Elephant is a toy instrument duo that comprises Robert Fleitz and Carrie Frey on toy pianos, toy viola, melodica, recorder, and various percussion objects. Combining theatricality, improvisation, and extended techniques, the duo brings whimsical fierceness to a program of new works and instant compositions. Flow charts, hair cuts, cat toys, squeaks, squawks, mind reading, invisible electronics, and vocalizations all make an appearance in works by intrepid composers Zak Argabrite, Sky Macklay, HM Mease, and Robert Fleitz.

Mease HM composes tunes, beep boops, and visual works with an interest in particpation over performance spectacle. The vocal tunes, focusing on themes of feminism in Catholic mysticism, work beyond the hierarchy often enforced by traditional choral roles. Performed by Blessed Version: Mease, Danielle Costanzo, Becka Lundy, and Alyssa Milman.
