Katherine Liberovskaya & Margarida Garcia (and possibly Barry Weisblat)

Katherine Liberovskaya is a Montreal-born multidisciplinary artist who has been working predominantly in experimental video and digital media since the late eighties. Over the years, she has produced many video works, both single-channel and installations, some of which have earned awards and mentions in Europe and North America. Her works have been presented at a wide variety of artistic events and venues around the world and she has held numerous grants and arts awards in Canada and in France where she studied media arts. In addition to her art practice she has concurrently been involved in the programming and organization of diverse media art events (notably with Studio XX, a Montreal cyberfeminist resource and presentation center dedicated to women¹s media/on-line art founded in 1995 (www.studioxx.org), of which she was president from 1999 to 2003), as well as writing about media art (articles published in ESSE-Arts + Opinions, la Revue Électronique du CIAC, the Banff Center's HorizonZero and the Canadian Journal of Communication). She is also on the board of directors of the Independent Media Arts Alliance of Canada (ex-Independent Film and Video Alliance). Her most recent artistic projects include: "Babel-On" (2003), a 5-channel video-audio installation/performance work-in-progress, produced with the collaboration of Phill Niblock, the preliminary version of which showed at Diapason in NY before touring a series of other venues in Canada, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Russia, Poland, Finland, etc., "Topolo: de Passato a Avvenire" (2004), a site-specific multi-channel video-audio installation created during the "Stazione di Topolo - Postaja Topolove" festival in the village of Topolo, in Italy on the Slovenian border (www.stazioneditopolo.it) in July 2004, as well as explorations in the field of interactive video and live video mixing.

Margarida Garcia / Barry Weisblat In the short time these two have publicly displayed their musical aesthetics, both Barry (homemade electronics) and Margarida (double bass) have each collaborated with an impressive collection of experimental artists, such as Tower Recordings, Eddie Prevost, Tetuzi Akiyama, Rhodri Davies, Toshio Kajiwara, and Phill Niblock. In fact it is was Niblock who brought Margarida to New York from her home in Lisbon, Portugal this past Spring. Her first performances at the Phonomena Sound Events, and the debut of her duo with (Brooklyn native) Weisblat at Experimental Intermedia, instantly captured the attention of New York's dowtown music community. However, it is not just music that these two deal with. Weisblat's machine and circuit manipulations also reach into the area of photography and sound engineering, where he has aided the likes of the late Peter Kowald, Erstwhile Records, and sound artist Dean Roberts. While Garcia's graphic design work has been displayed as video art, installations, and poster art. As a duo, Margarida and Barry have developed a spontaneous language and a dynamic range that is all their own. She journies through the landscape of the bass and electronic pick-up with her fingers, bow, sticks and stones, and anything else she finds fit, while he experiments with electro-magnetic devices, homemade circuits, and solar cell technology. The textures that emerge from their performance peel back the layers of air, knots it together, and then let's it simply hang.

Josh, thanks again for the 4.5 info, now im actually tempted to spend some money. The pattr storage shit was fucking awesome. There are some really nice things going on.

Does pattr storage work with subpatches/bpathers for saving state/variables?
