.. HENRY WARWICK . Henry Warwick is an artist, composer,

Ryerson University in Toronto, and is a research fellow at the
Infoscape Lab at Ryerson. He has a BFA in Visual Systems
Studies from Rutgers University, an MFA from Goddard College
in Interdisciplinary Art, and a PhD in Communications from the
European Graduate School in Switzerland. Originally from Edison,
New Jersey, he has lived in Washington, DC and San Francisco,
CA. An active artist in a variety of media, his visual art work is on
display in a variety of locations in California and his music can be
downloaded at his website, kether.com or auricular.com. Since
2007, he has lived in Toronto with his family and cats.

Henry’s latest musical excursions are the release of 2 CDs of his
electronic music this summer, “Something Borrowed” and
“Something Old + Something New”, and a North American Tour of
“InC” a solo performance and interpretation of In C by Terry Riley,
in honour of the 50th anniversary of that landmark composition. He
designed the software for these InC performances, and it was written
by Matt Ingalls. The software will be available for free download from
Matt Ingalls’s website, http://sfsound.org/matt/, and the iTunes Music
Store for use on the Apple iPad and Ipad Mini. Also, Henry has an
online Radio Show called “Something Completely Different” which
can be heard every Sunday and Tuesday night at 10PM at

.. ALAN SONDHEIM . Alan Sondheim is a city-based new media artist,
musician, writer, and performer concerned with issues of virtuality,
and the stake that the real world has in the virtual. He has worked
with his partner Azure Carter among others. Sondheim is interested
in examining the grounds of the virtual and how the body is inhabited.
He performs in virtual, real, and cross-over worlds; his virtual work
is known for its highly complex and mobile architectures. He has
used altered motion-capture technology extensively for examining
and creating new lexicons of behavior.

His current work is centered around notions of gamespace,
'edgespace' (the border areas of gamespace) and 'blankness,'
projections around edgespace. He's been developing a theory
of semiotic splatter / splatter semiotics, dealing with fast-forward
literatures of twitter, politics, 4chan, facebook, etc. His writing
stems out of codework, a problematic style in which code
substrates and surface content interfere with each other - in
which, in other words, the textual body and body of text are
deeply entangled. His current music is based on the impossibility
of time reversal, on fast improvisation, and anti-gestural
approaches to playing. His most recent work is this
short biography.
