Amina Cain is the author of the short story collection I Go To Some Hollow (Les Figues Press, 2009), and a forthcoming chapbook, Tramps Everywhere (Insert Press/PARROT SERIES). A recording of her story “Attached to a Self” was included in the group show A Diamond in the Mud at Literaturhaus Basel in Switzerland in 2008; other work has appeared in publications such as 3rd Bed, Action Yes, Denver Quarterly, onedit, Sidebrow, and Wreckage of Reason: Xxperimental Prose by Women Writers. She lives in Los Angeles. (http://aminacain.com/)

Sean Griffin lives and works in Los Angeles. Encompassing many languages, styles, media and forms, Griffin’s unusual compositional works rely on interdisciplinary incongruities positioned at the intersection of sound, image, performance, and the archive. His works manifest as large and small-scale operas, collaborative installations, complex numeric choreographies and historically weighted performance works. He has also composed a large body of acoustic chamber music.
Over the last year, Griffin designed an extended Tarot deck and his music and performance works, including the large-scale EMPAC opera Cold Spring, were presented at the Cannes Film Festival, Moscow Biennial, Festival BoM in Seoul, LACMA, and at venues in Montreal, Paris, Berlin, New York, Guangju, and Singapore.
His current work attempts to instrumentalize multi-layered field recordings of the Port of Los Angeles and empty gay hookup sites. He recieved an MFA from CalArts and a Ph.D. from the University of California, San Diego.

Will Alexander– Poet, novelist, aphorist, playwright, essayist, and visual artist. Both a Whiting and California Art Council Fellow, his latest book, The Sri Lankan Loxodrome was published by New Directions. Amongst his newest works is Compression & Purity, a book of poems from City Lights.
