anne red stripeANNE MCGUIRE’S  art spans video, performance, and painting. She has created a body of performance videos often utilizing analog black-and-white video cameras and experiments with linear narratives. She and Wobbly (Jon Leidecker) first performed on KPFA radio in 1999, which led to many live shows. Anne’s videos have screened at MoMA and The Whitney Museum of American Art (New York), The Getty Museum (Los Angeles), SFMOMA (San Francisco), Berkeley’s Pacific Film Archive (PFA), and film and video festivals internationally. Her work is cited in Radical Light: Alternative Film and Video in the San Francisco Bay Area, 1945–2000 (2010, University of California Press) and California Video: Artists and Histories (2008, Getty Research Institute). McGuire has exhibited her fine art at David Cunningham Projects, 2nd floor projects, Right Window, and Southern Exposure, in San Francisco. Her work is distributed by Video Data Bank (Chicago) and LUX (London).

WOBBLY is the moniker of JON LEIDECKER a San Francisco based musician/composer of experimental electronic music.[1] He has released works on Tigerbeat6, Illegal Art, Alku, Phthalo, and others. He has been producing music since 1987 and ongoing studio and live projects involve collaborations with People Like Us, Thomas Dimuzio, Kevin Blechdom, Tim Perkis, Matmos and The Weatherman of Negativland. He is also a member of the Chopping Channel and Sagan.
ORBIT_4KERRY LAITALA grew up in the wilds of the Maine coast, while developing a chronic passion for old things. She attended Massachusetts College of Art studying Photography and Film and received her Masters degree from the San Francisco Art Institute in Film. Laitala has received numerous awards such as the Princess Grace Award in 1996 and subsequent grants in 2004 and 2007. She has also won a 2007 GOLDIE from The Bay Guardian and has twice won a Golden Gate Award from the San fancisco International Film Festival. Her work has been screened internationally and in the celestial ether which connects us with the music of the spheres.
KS_ViolenceFilmmaker and curator KONRAD STEINER lives in San Francisco and makes cinema performances with musicians and writers. He has worked live with the Jon Raskin Quartet, Graham Connah (Ted Brinkley)’s large and small ensembles, and non-commercially set the music of Frank Zappa, Anton Webern and The Fall to film.
 Unsound5PAUL CLIPSON makes experimental films exclusively with a Super8 and 16mm films. Clipson’s largely improvised, in-camera-edited Super-8mm films often employ multiple exposures, dissolves, and macro imagery, bringing to light subconscious preoccupations and unexpected visual forms. Master of color, shape and texture, he has collaborated with countless musicians at home and abroad and is a tireless creative force in the Bay Area arts community.
  Joshua Churchill is a San Francisco-based cross-disciplinary artist whose immersive site-specific sound and light work takes the form of both installation and performance, often blurring the line between the two. Churchill also collaborates regularly with filmmakers, including Paul Clipson and John Davis, in the context of live sound and film performances and is a member of experimental black metal / noise project Sutekh Hexen. Joshua Churchill has exhibited and performed both nationally and abroad. He was an artist in residence at AIR  Krems, Austria in 2013, and the Djerassi Resident Artist Progam in Woodside, California in 2011.
