NICOLAS VÉRIN discovered music, specifically electronics and musique concrète, in a summer workshop as a youth. Thus sparked, he went on to study composition with Pierre Schaeffer and Guy Reibel at the Conservatoire de Paris, and with composers Roger Reynolds, Jean-Charles François, and Joji Yuasa at the University of California, San Diego. After returning to France he collaborated with notable figures in new music including Pierre Henry and Vinko Globokar. Since 1991, Nicolas Vérin shares his time between composing and teaching electro-acoustic composition, currently at the Conservatoire d'Evry. He is the co-founder of the Ligys Studio and a member of the board of Ars Sonora, an association that networks between the various French electro-acoustic music studios to promote the music nation-wide.

IGOR KORNEITCHOUK was born in Madrid, Spain, in 1956, and emigrated to the U.S. at the age of three. In 1980, his Six Frames for String Quartet was selected as part of the syndicated Young Audiences Program. Splinters of a Shattered Space, for Cello and Piano, was selected by competition to be performed at the Cal Arts Festival of 1983. He has been awarded grants from the UC Regents and the American Music Center for the performance of his Concerto for Trumpet and Orchestra, "Desert Flowers," in 1987. Korneitchouk has had his orchestral works Everything That Rises Must Converge recorded by the Seattle Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Gerard Schwarz, and Viola Concerto, "Coaxing the Shadows to Move of Their Own Volition," recorded by the Czech Radio Symphony Orchestra of Prague with violist Karen Dreyfus.
