EMS welcomes Thomas Bey William Bailey for a couple of weeks in September! He is a sound artist, author, and educator who has worked and lived in Japan, Spain, Central Europe and various U.S. locales. His output in both text and audio media has focused heavily upon the extremes of information, and on the identification of what is truly meaningful and constructive within the conditions of information saturation and deprivation.

As a "practicioner-documenter," He has written two exhaustive volumes on new electronic music practices ('MicroBionic') and networked audio ('Unofficial Release'), and will have a third volume on the cultural history of synesthesia published in the coming year. He is also currently re-animating an interest in video art along with the Spanish artist Susana López.
