Tony Christy is recognized as a sound poetry performer. For the past few 
years Tony has been dedicated to redefining what it means to be 
experimental, avant-garde, bold, and risk taking, by being slightly 
kooky, which adds to the enjoyment of his work. His performances have 
taken him from Portland to Orlando.

For eight years Marko Whens has been playing with concepts of language 
through the means of visual poetry, sound poetry, mail art, 
installation, performance, video, and photography. Last year his visual 
poems were exhibited in the SoundVision / VisionSound III show at the 
Nave Gallery in Somerset, Massachusetts, and in the Land and Language 
exhibition at The Land/An Art Site in Mountainair, New Mexico, and he 
performed his Sign Event in NYC at Times Square. He participated in the 
Fluxus Festival in Nice, France, in 2003, and had a solo show at the 
Casa de La Palabra in Guadalajara, Mexico, in 2001. Curator of Spare 
Room's Sound Poetry Festivals in 2003 and 2004, his work has been 
published recently in the periodicals envelope, fo_a_rm, Ferrum Wheel, 
flim, and Take Out. For this reading, his poems will be presented via 
video projection and performance.
