Since then, he has recorded and performed internationally with such artists as Tony Malaby, John Jesurun, Willie Winant, George Lewis, Mark Dresser, John Russell, Dominique Leone, Kanoko Nishi, Jacob Koller, and bands Gowns, Cryptacize, Missincinatti, The Mae Shi, Barbez, and The Mountain Goats.

Lam Vuong was born in Pascagoula, Mississippi, to Vietnamese refugees. His photography, watercolors, and installations deal with Asian American culture and the nuances of loneliness and confusion in dating. Trekking from Florida, as a graduate of the University of Miami, he started his MFA at CalArts this fall. He is usually playing violin, reading comics, or waiting by the refreshments table for people to hit on him.
