Ting Ting Jahe are an improvisational group from Richmond VA.

Ben Scott, Ben Owen, and Tommy Birchette are the core members. Paul Goode has also preformed with the group.

Everything from laptops, to guitar, toys,gongs, zither, and tapes are used to make the music as well as homemade instuments, and modified electronics and toys.

Their sound is very ambient and drifting, suggesting as clash of the ancient and modern.

This preformance they will be joined by Scott Hudgins (ENE) using an empty sampler. He will be sampling the momments and re-introducing them as instant nostalgia.

Paul Goode will provide visual projections for this preformance
