Erik Ruin is a Michigan-raised, Philadelphia-based printmaker, shadow puppeteer, paper-cut artist, etc., who has been lauded by the New York Times for his "spell-binding cut-paper animations." His work oscillates between the poles of apocalyptic anxieties and utopian yearnings, with an emphasis on empathy, transcendence and obsessive detail. He frequently works collaboratively with musicians, theater performers, other artists and activist campaigns. He is a founding member of the international Justseeds Artists' Cooperative, and co-author of the book Paths Toward Utopia: Graphic Explorations of Everyday Anarchism (w/ Cindy Milstein, PM Press, 2012). Current projects include the Ominous Cloud Ensemble, an ever-evolving, collectively-improvising large ensemble for projections and music which at times has included/includes members of the Sun Ra Arkestra, Bardo Pond and Espers.
Erica Corbo is a professional musician and performance artist native to the Philadelphia area. Implementing her talents mainly on the piano, she also performs as a flutist, vocalist, and dancer. Her work spans the disciplines of jazz, free improv, and original music. Her first solo album of original compositions, I, America, was released in 2017. Erica plays with and manages the free improvisation ensemble Space Whale Orchestra. She produces her own monthly concert series called Warp Factor 9. She has worked extensively with the Philadelphia Jazz Project, Philadelphia Jazz Tap Ensemble, and the Impermanent Society of Philadelphia. Erica has collaborated with artists such as Michelle Lordi, Monette Sudler, Tara Middleton, DM Hotep, Michael Szeleky, Tim Price, George Korein, Lard Dog, and Elliott Levin. The ultimate goal of Erica’s art is to unify varying music genres, artistic disciplines, and people.
Veronica Mercedes Pazymiño Jurkiewicz is an instrumentalist, vocalist, educator, and curator based in Philadelphia. She is drawn to sound involving the intersection of experimental, improvisational, and traditional practice; has a passion for creating and realizing diverse types of artistic programs and performing art experiences; and is an active member of the avant-garde music scene in Philadelphia.
Matt Engle enjoys accompanying a wide variety of challenging artists in Philadelphia. Before everything came to a sudden halt he was writing and performing with dancers while incorporating electronics along with his acoustic bass, improvising and playing original material in bands, and working on solo bass performance moves.
Captain Corbo’s Warp Factor 9 is a monthly concert series created, curated, and produced by pianist and artist, Erica Corbo. Held in a small piano studio in West Philadelphia, the series features small creative ensembles of all genres in an intimate community setting. WF9 creates a much needed home for local avant-garde and jazz acts, as well as for solo pianists and piano-focused ensembles. In pairing the avant-garde with more mainstream genres, Erica hopes to break down the unnecessary divides placed between musical styles, artistic disciplines, peoples, and all other things.
