Ellen Arkbro is a composer and sound-artist primarily working with intervallic harmony in just intonation. Her work includes long duration compositions for ensembles as well as electronic sound environments in the form of installations and live performances, employing both traditional acoustic instruments as well as digital algorithmic sound synthesis. In 2017 Arkbro released her first album, For Organ And Brass, a set of recordings of her compositions in just intonation for renaissance organ, horn, trombone and microtonal tuba.

As a composer of electronic and electroacoustic music, Sarah Davachi's compositional projects are primarily concerned with disclosing the antiquated instruments and forgotten sonics of a bygone era in analog synthesis, with concurrent treatment of acoustic sources – particularly organ, piano, strings, and woodwinds – often involving de-familiarization through processing. Her work considers the experience of enveloped sonic dwelling, utilizing extended durations and simple harmonic structures that emphasize variations in overtone complexity and psychoacoustic artefacts.
