Carrie Hunter received her MFA/MA in the Poetics program at New College of California, edits the chapbook press, ypolita press, and is on the editorial board of Black Radish Books. Her latest chapbook Vice/Versa recently came out with Dancing Girl Press. Her full-length collection, The Incompossible, was published in 2011 by Black Radish Books, and another, Orphan Machines, came out in 2015. She lives in San Francisco and teaches ESL. 

Ben Glas is an interdisciplinary artist and composer based in Portland, Oregon. Glas' work focuses intently on egalitarian proprioception, stasis/rush within digital systems, and notions of spacetime. Working extensively with sine-waves and unconventional softwares, Glas engages physical spaces and their ephemeral inhabitants to remind participants of a momentary sonic awareness within space and time.  

Ing Ing (Variation 3) is an experiential tonal composition that merges time and space, proprioception and movement. Utilizing open-ended drones and acoustic beating, its installation space becomes an interactive 3D album; the choice of movement and composition are in the hands and minds of each individual listener, as they sculpt their own experience in space.
