Writer, Director, Actor, Voice Talent, Musician, Improviser
Possessing a natural talent for acting, writing, and music, Pace has been in cahoots with the art world since his earliest days as an improvisational performer. Born to an artistically inclined family, you can all but guarantee that the time he's not spending rigging up his newest puppet for a performace at Westfall or lending his incredible voice talents to numerous projects, he's behind an instrument of some form creating his signature shoegazer sounds and warming hearts with his welcoming and ambient vibrations.
Pace is one of the 4 key members of The Soft Spots, and also has released a number of solo projects.

Noémie Christelle Masika
Prime Aesthetician (The NSM Initiative), Daft Poet, Fashion Dictator
Known as "The Daft Ranter" for her biting, highly emotional and risqué poetry, Mimi (also penned under simply "NC") is the driving force in the aesthetic and atmospheric choices behind the projects of the NSM Initiative (DiCE Dai SuGiRu, SCREAM SHOOTER, RAX). Though her fashion stylings often have strong draws from 60s British Mod and 70s Invasion fashion, an air of her dark sadist humor and Hegelian Triad philosophy has her often creating an interplay with the darker sides of gothic-lolita and Regal-Gothic fashion. Mimi also decides the final designs of all fashion choices in the NSM Initiative.
