the prestigious grant for Contemporary Performance Arts, numerous

Rockefeller Foundation grant, and NYSCA Composer Commission. Most

working with Björk on her newest record.

Interview with Zeena and Janene at the "Noisy.org" website:

Location One (www.location1.org) is a new not-for profit art center,
which fosters the convergence of all types of creative expression. We
maintain a gallery space suitable for every form of performance and
exhibition, and within this space, multimedia net-broadcasting
facilities that allow us to webcast a 24-hour stream of both live and
archived events. Our International Residency Program invites artists
from other countries to experiment with emerging technologies. Location
One is an exploration space for continual creative discovery.
