Mohamed Kubbara is a composer, musician and researcher based in New York City. During his bachelors in sound engineering and music production at Birmingham City University in the UK, he became heavily involved with the free improvisation and experimental music scene.

As the collective's composer-in-residence, as well as principal percussionist, Kubbara came to specialize in composing open-form works for indeterminate instrumentation and improvised contents as well as their recording, mixing and production. His research currently focuses on developing interactive music systems for large ensemble free improvisation.
