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.
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.
