Since retiring his project Dirty Beaches, Zhang has been focusing on explorations of improvised music, free jazz, and his new role as a composer of soundtracks for film. His latest musical output predominantly works with saxophone, synthesizers, percussion, and piano, furthering his research on ritualistic music of liminality. Solo output aside, he is also a member of an experimental trio with Portuguese musicians David Maranha and Gabriel Ferrandini, based in Lisbon. Zhang currently lives in Los Angeles and is also working as an actor in independent films.

Visible Cloaks is Spencer Doran and Ryan Carlile, two musicians based in Portland, OR, USA working in the intersection of composition and technology, arrangement and environment, place and non-place. Their music has taken many forms: site-specific multi-channel pieces, live A/V performances, compositions for aleatoric chamber ensembles, albums, EPs, film scores, and randomized audio installations. 2017 saw the release of the critically acclaimed LP Reassemblage and sister EP Lex, alongside the video piece Permutate Lex with Brenna Murphy. After extensive world touring in 2018, 2019 sees the release of their collaborative with Yoshio Ojima and Satsuki Shibano, serenitatem, out worldwide on April 5th.
