involved in installation, dance, electronic music,
theatre, and video. The July 22nd event at 21 Grand

event is sponsored by Amoeba Music.

K. ATCHLEY will premiere a new assisted-installation.
The untitled work is described as an observance of the
sunset on the occasion of Samuel Beckett's centenary
birthday. The piece features interactive
video and electronic sound, and a performance by the
composer.

JOHN BISCHOFF will perform PIANO 7HZ, featuring
contact-mic-driven sample fragments, and LOCAL COLOR,
which constructs synthetic bell patterns complemented
by pure-tone drones.

TIM PERKIS will premiere a new solo work ABSOLUTE.

TIM PERKIS and JOHN BISCHOFF will generate the latest
installment of their sublime improvisational duo.

KATTT SAMMON will present her electronic piece DESIRE,
LULLABY (song duet with K. Atchley), and premiere an
INFLUCTUATISTIC work (under the guidance of Guillermo
Galindo) that uses voice, press ‘n seal, re-figured
plastic coke bottle, contact and dynamic microphones.

ARTIST BIOS:

TIM PERKIS has been working in the medium of live
electronic and computer sound for many years,
performing, exhibiting installation works and
recording in North America, Europe and Japan. His work
has largely been concerned with exploring the
emergence of life-like properties in complex systems
of interaction. In addition, he is a well-known
performer in the world of improvised music, having
performed on his electronic improvisation instruments
with over 100 artists and groups. Ongoing groups he
has founded or played in include the League of
Automatic Music Composers and the Hub -- pioneering
live computer network bands.

JOHN BISCHOFF is an early pioneer of live computer
music. He is known for his solo constructions in
real-time synthesis as well as his ground-breaking
work in computer network bands. Bischoff's music is
built from intrinsic features of the electronic
medium: high definition noise components, tonal edges,
imperfections, transitions, digital shading, and
non-linear motion. Through empirical play and
investigation he builds pieces that can be described
as sonic sculptures, shaped in real-time and present
for the duration of a performance.

K. ATCHLEY is a sound, video, and installation artist
who fashions and performs works ranging from pure-tone
and noise hymns to distortion-studded,
electro-acoustic devotionals. His work has long
focused on creating platforms that allow an absorbed,
immersive attention. His latest work also points to
ways in which this type of attention alters the
“gravity” of the subjective world around it. Much of
his work has included the use of fountains as
sound-sources, objects, and environments and his
current presentations continue to be informed by and
abstract that work and study. A profile of his work
was included in the June, 2005 issue of The Wire
(#256).

KATTT SAMMON writes, composes, sings, reads text,
plays keyboard, and combines disciplines into
performance. Ms. Sammon's works include solo
performance, as well as, collaborations with artist
Kenneth Atchley; and since 2003 has commissioned
musical theater pieces from a growing roster of
artists who include Judy Dunaway, Blue Gene Tyranny,
Alyssa Lee, Guillermo Galindo and Kunsu Shim. In 2005,
the text and stage diagram for her piece TALKING TRASH
was published in the anthology SOUND VISIONS. Ms.
Sammon has performed at venues in the Bay Area, New
York, & Germany.
