The two works are performed live with a unique mixture of antique sound apparatus, micro-radio transmissions and video projection.
Jay Needham is an artist, radio producer, composer, Professor in the Department of Mass Communications, at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, and President of the American Society for Acoustic Ecology (ASAE).
