About the readers:

Bethany Ides (née Wright) is a poet, performance-installation artist, 
teacher & independent curator, currently residing in Portland, Oregon. 
In 2005, she mounted versions of her solo performance piece, "Hark the 
Harbingers," at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, PS122, and the Zieher-Smith 
Gallery in NYC, and at Nocturnal Gallery in Portland. From 2002-07, she 
co-edited FO (A) RM magazine, an interdisciplinary forum for arts & 
research [see: foarm.artdocuments.org]. Her fourth chapbook, "From 
Whence Undone," is soon forthcoming from Cosa Nostra Editions [see: 
cosanostra-editions.com]. Ides teaches time-based arts and art theory at 
the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland.

Emily Kendal Frey lives in Portland, Oregon. Her work has been published 
in DIAGRAM, Mudlark, and Octopus, and recent work is forthcoming from 
Word For/Word, Spinning Jenny, and Knock. Additionally, collaborative 
work with Sarah Bartlett will appear in Portland Review, Bat City 
Review, and through horse less press. Poems from Something Should Happen 
at Night Outside, a collaboration with Zachary Schomburg, will appear in 
Pilot and Diode.

About the music:

Arrington de Dionyso <http://www.myspace.com/arringtondedionyso> uses 
performance as a vehicle for driving through the nameless territories 
held between surrealist automatism, shamanic seance, and the folk 
imagery of rock and roll. Arrington performs on the bass clarinet, jaw 
harps, and his voice with a distinctly multiphonic ability inspired by 
Tuvan throatsinging and the ecclesiastics of Albert Ayler and Don Van 
Vliet. He tours constantly, and has performed and/or recorded with 
notable improvisers throughout the U.S.A., Canada, Italy, France, Israel 
and Lithuania. He presents workshops on improvising with the voice in 
conjunction with his travels around the world.

About UDLE:

The Unwin-Dunraven Literary Ecclesia is a new literary convergence, 
encompassing a quarterly reading & performance series, finespun 
publications, special events, and extensive online archives, emerging in 
flux with our interest in Gnostic narrative, imagined cartographies, 
oracular utterance, and the alchemy of language.
