Carly Ptak (along with Twig Harper, jointly AKA Nautical Almanac) is an inspired transplant to Baltimore from Chicago, homesteading in their performance space-cum-laboratory "Tarantula Hill" on a desolate stretch of West Pratt street. Dedicated to a snarling and seething aesthetic built up from broken parts of the discarded techno-culture, Ptak is an expert at what has been called "circuit bending"--the practice of violently rewiring existing commercial hardware to turn it against its own philosophic basis (ie., a limited notion of what it means to "function.") Her improvisations tap directly into the heart of breaking equipment and frying circuits, with a huge appetites for directly lived situations and the sacred unrepeatable.www.heresee.com

Does anyone know how to get in touch with Carly? I'm afraid my emails may be going to spam. If you could pass http://www.musicmanumit.com/p/interview-details.html on to her, that would be fantastic.
