> --------------
> #1 For his performance at OKNO, Writing On Air, Gregory Whitehead will 
> invite us on a journey through twisted tongues and prosthetic voices, 
> fungal language, the global screamscape, a brief seminar of the proper 
> facial expression for catastrophe, the song of a disembodied knee, 
> radio philosophy and other essential audio ephemera. For more info, 
> you can hear wigged theory at http://gregorywhitehead.com.
> Gregory Whitehead is an internationally renowned audio artist, writer, 
> director and producer of well over one hundred radio plays, essays and 
> acoustic adventures. His productions have won numerous major awards, 
> including a Prix Italia for Pressures of the Unspeakable, a Prix 
> Futura for Shake, Rattle, Roll and Sony Gold Academy Awards for The 
> Loneliest Road and No Background Music, featuring Sigourney Weaver. He 
> also performs frequently in literary cabarets and media festivals, as 
> well as live-to-air.
> #2 Decomposing Spacetime by Non-linear Insertions of Waves of Sonic 
> Tension.
> Jeroen Uyttendaele and Isjtar continue their symbiotic merger of sonic 
> material and strategies.
> Discarding dichotomies as rhythm and texture, form and function, 
> digital and analogue, they seek to build arches of sonic tension.
> Isjtar makes electronic music and new media art. He has a profound 
> fascination for all things that underpin the mind, perception and 
> reality. When not lost in fantasies of the systems that surround us, 
> he translates this obsession into performances, installations and 
> music tracks, with an ever critical reflection and a corresponding 
> aesthetic.
> He is a core-member of OKNO, Society of Algorithm, Code31 and works 
> with several other artists and collectives such as Jeroen Uyttendaele, 
> Shelbatra Jashari, Masato Tsutsui, Machine Centered Humanz and So-on.
> He had a short and enriching affair with RITS radio, but got lost 
> deciphering reality. http://isjtar.org
> As a Master in Art Science student in Den Hague, Jeroen Uyttendaele 
> extends his experiments in sender-receiver feedback systems. By 
> integrating old fashioned, discarded technology with contemporary 
> digital techniques, he searches for new forms which are neither 
> nostalgic, nor blinded by cutting edge hype. He is a Master graduate 
> of RITS radio.
