With his origins in the mid-western United States, is presenting a composition from the song cycle, PHANTOM LIMB &, when standing by itself, means and BISON; this cycle has been described as fitting entirely within the grid of all social and cultural norms "...there is nothing out of the ordinary about this music whatsoever but...." the execution of this work is handled by the German-resident reed player, Chris Heenan; the guitarist, Chris Forsyth; Jaime Fennelly on electronics; and Shawn Hansen on EMS Synthi and radio feedback

Thursday 17   Sten Hanson

The Stockholm composer will present some kind of a revue of his work over the past 5 decades plus new stuff - 5 or 6 old works, 2 to 4 new works; all will be performance, some with recorded sounds

Thursday 24   Florian Hecker and Yasunao Tone

Performing "Palimpsest", a piece based on Tone's Man'yo Shu (Japanese ancient poetic anthology) pieces, conceived by converting the text's Chinese characters into appropriate photographic images, and then into sounds; these sounds will be partly de-structured and partly added to by Hecker; on the level of microsonical timescales, namely using the units of wavesets, a segment of an audio signal between one non-positive to positive zero crossing and the next.(see T. Wishart: Audible Design, 1995); "Palimpsest" combines pre-recorded sound, real time sound processing and unpredictability

Friday 25   Tom Chiu and David First

"Before Swallowing" - a three course meal of solos & duet featuring rebel violinistics, electronical errors, fresh ground guitar, 3D harmonic schemes and the scraping of huge egos

Sunday 27   Andre Goncalves

Bolsa Ernesto de Sousa, a memorial fellowship named for the Portuguese Intermedia Artist, sponsored by the Luso-Americana Foundation and the Fundacao Calouste Gulbenkian, in Lisbon, coordinated by Isabel Alves, presents an intermedia performance:

"Resonant Objects" aims at bringing together sound and space through a physical phenomenon, where sound is used as a medium to excite space to be heard, sound generating more sound through space; so the sound we hear is strictly related to the object's spatial characteristics, its shape, dimensions and material, but also its relationship with the site-specific architecture and again the spatial characteristics of the precise space that hosts all the objects; with special guest Kenneth Kirschner

Monday 28   George Brunner and Douglas Cohen

Intermedia, Interlingua, Electronica: text sound composition from Brooklyn; they perform a cycle of spoken word pieces making extensive use of digital processing techniques, merging the processed text with acoustic and electronic sounds
