The Eternal Now is the collaborative project of Marcia Bassett and Ted Gordon playing Buchla Music Easels with analog strobe projections by Jeffrey Perkins.

Artist/musician Marcia Bassett works in areas of sound, improvisation, live composition and visual creations. Bassett's work is equal parts trance and critique. Her sound pieces thread the needle between the conceptual and the sensual, between ritual invocation and cold semiotic gaze.

Ted Gordon is a musician and musicologist. His dissertation research on the San Fransisco Tape Music Center led him to study and work with the instruments of Don Buchla, and he has performed with the Buchla Music Easel since 2016 in Chicago and New York. He is currently a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at Columbia University.

Jeffrey Perkins is an experimental filmmaker and Fluxus artist. His more recent works include a series of taxicab recordings called MOVIES FOR THE BLIND, 1995-2003, and the films THE PAINTER SAM FRANCIS, 2008 and "George, the story of George Maciunas & Fluxus" now distributed by Kino Lorber films, and premiered with 7 invited screenings in the MoMA Doc fortnight festival in 2018.

Marcin Pietruszewski is a composer and researcher. He is engaged in sound synthesis and composition with computers, exploring specific formal developments in the tradition of electroacoustic music and contemporary sound art, as well as extra-musical domains of auditory design, computational linguistics and psychoacoustics. He works across performance, multimedia installation and radio productions probing the dynamics between formalism of synthetic sound and its material realisation. http://www.r-v.space/the-new-pulsar-generator-manual
