Code-switching is practiced by speakers of all languages, sometimes without conscious action. Depending on who we are speaking to and where we are, we may change our dialect or style. In our music, Code-switching strives to find a common sonic dialect, weaving through situations of ambience, noise, jazz, rock, improvisation and experimentation.

Darin Gray (born 1967) is an American musician and composer based in Edwardsville, Illinois. He is best known for playing bass in St. Louis' Dazzling Killmen, and with Jim O'Rourke in Brise-Glace and on O'Rourke's solo albums. A prolific musician since the 1980s, Darin has appeared on albums ranging from noise to math rock. Besides Dazzling Killmen and Brise-Glace, he has played in bands such as Yona-Kit, You Fantastic!, Sad Lewis, Grand Ulena, and On Fillmore.
