Artist Details: Devin Sarno and G.E. Stinson

Devin Sarno began CRIB in early 1990 as a solo bass sound
project focusing on improvised subsonics. Over the course of
a decade, the music has evolved from high volume feedback
experimentation to a sonic examination of the meditative
properties of low-end drone music. (In 2003, the CRIB
moniker was retired & Sarno now performs & records under
his own name). Sarno was a founding member of the seminal
L.A. art rock band Waldo The Dog Faced Boy. As a bassist,
Sarno has collaborated/recorded with many diverse acts
including: Nels Cline, Thurston Moore, Joe Baiza, Mike Watt,
Jack Brewer, Z’EV, Jason Kahn, Petra Haden, that dog,
Abby Travis, Danny Frankel, Jeff Gauthier, Tom Surgal,
