patrick mcginley (aka murmer) is an american born sound and performance
artist who has lived and worked in europe since 1996. from 1996 until 1998
he lived in paris, where he studied theatre and began his sound experiments
in the context of those studies. moving to london in 1998, he began a
collection of found sounds and found objects that would become the basis of
his work.  in 2002 he founded framework, an organisation which produces a
weekly field-recording based radio show on london's resonamcefm.  he has
composed works for many theatre performances, including the works of his own
company, as well as performing live soundworks for others. his work
concentrates on the framing of sounds from our environment which normally
pass through our ears unnoticed and unremarked, but which out of context
become unrecognisable, alien and extraordinary: crackling charcoal, a
squeaking escalator, a buzzing insect, or one's own breath.

Katherine Liberovskaya is a Canadian video and media artist based in
Montreal and New York. Shas been working predominantly in experimental video
since the late eighties. Over the years, she has produced many
single-channel videos, video installation works and video performances which
have been presented at a wide variety of artistic venues and events around
the world. As of recent years her work - in single-channel and installation
video as well as performance - mainly revolves around collaborations with
new music composers/sound artists, notably Phill Niblock, Al Margolis/If,
Bwana and David Watson. Since 2003 she began exploring live video mixing,
using MAX/MSP and Jitter, in improvisation with live new music/sound and has
since performed in diverse contexts in North America and Europe with a
number of music/sound artists among which: Margarida Garcia, Barry Weisblat,
