Talk More formed in 2013 to explore new forms of collaboration through total democratic dialogue. A trio of seasoned performers and improvisers, their music inhabits the fuzzy regions between improvisation and composition, ambience and noise, accessibility and experimentation, stasis and movement, drone and melody. Three recipients of Mills College’s MFA in Electronic Music, they use their educational foundation in the avant-garde to bring academic concepts of psychoacoustics, structure, form, and texture to a purely aesthetic experience which requires no advanced degrees to appreciate.
Aaron Oppenheim, Laptop-instrument

Oa (Hugh Behm-Steinberg and Matt Davignon) uses spoken stories, phrases, words and phonemes as the building blocks for improvised experimental music. Matt has been electronically manipulating sounds for over 20 years, including building an organic voice for drum machine on releases such as "Living Things". Hugh's poetry has been published in the books "The Opposite of Work" and "Shy Green Fields." Oa's debut CD compiles improvisations for samplers and digital turntables, mixing all the voices into a musical soup with ebbing and flowing narratives.
