About our presenters:

Eric Jordan is a musician and sound composer living in Portland, Ore. Public-space realizations range from traditional music combos to multi-channel random access experiments.




Michael Elsden will be showing work from his series of nudes titled, Men As Botanicals. Inspired by the work of Karl Blossfeldt, this series of nudes seeks to depict the male body as an organic plant-like form, twisting and furling, but isolated on a white field like a scientific specimen. As with nature, each of the models provided differing interpretations as their body shapes, decoration and gestures suggest delicate individuality.



Ryan Murphy is the author of The Redcoats (Krupskaya) and Down with the Ship (Seismicity Editions). He lives in the Hudson Valley.


The Modern Airline is a neo-new wave band formed in Brooklyn, late 2008. This co-ed pentagram dives into short, aggressive, stop and starts that borrow equally from ‘80s new wave and ‘70s punk and hard rock, while soaring out into new territories. Twin tube-soaked guitars are pierced by synth, cut by space, propelled by kick and driving bass. The band consists of frontman and guitarist Lee Chabowski, bassist Amy Brown, drummer Gary Langol, guitarist Seth Walter, and synth player Margaret Chabowski, performing songs of sex, outer space and the weirdness of runaway technology with spastic glee. TMA is releasing its first studio album, “This Will Probably Happen to You,” in early 2011.



Kristen Kosmas is an American playwright and performer. Her plays and solo performances have been produced in Seattle, Austin, Boston, Chicago, and in New York City at numerous venues including the Prelude festival, Performance Space 122, Dixon Place, Little Theater, Barb├Ęs, and the Ontological/Hysteric Downstairs Series. Her play Hello Failure was recently published by Ugly Duckling Presse, and her multi-voice performance text This From Cloudland appears in the latest issue of “PLAY A Journal of Plays.”
