Founded in 2008, SWARMIUS  is a contemporary  virtuoso chamber ensemble incorporating acoustic instruments with electronics.
The music is written exclusively by Jozefius (Joseph Martin Waters) who also performs live electronics.
The other members of the Ensemble are SAXIMUS (Todd Rewoldt,  saxophones); Schödingers Sax (Michael Couper,  saxophones );
Peripateticus ( Geoffrey Burleson, piano, melodica, panpipes);
