Luke Kyp-Johnson

Luke Kyp-Johnson, Quinlan's brother, is a freelance Chicago musician. "I could not have gotten the editing done without him," says Quinlan. Luke mostly works on creating tracks using found sounds but when it came to editing voice he knew exactly what to do. Luke also is the drummer and vocals in the Chicago band Family Rituals.

Quinlan Kyp-Johnson

Quinlan Kyp-Johnson is a Chicago freelance artist dipping her toe into audio documentaries for the first time. Having worked in video documentaries she thought it would be a nice addition to her portfolio. "I love capturing and preserving all kinds of stories that surround me daily." Art is her life, her passion, her therapy.
