IF, BWANA Since the 1980s, Al Margolis has earned an international reputation for his experimental music recorded under the name If, Bwana. Realized with a range of collaborators, If, Bwana music is a fusion of ambient, industrial, and musique concrete, featuring strange soundscapes that are both soothing and unnerving, often at the same time. Margolis has also been very active as the owner of two prolific labels, the cassette label Sound of Pig and, since the 1990s, Pogus Productions, a CD label with a focus on experimental contemporary classical music. MICHÆL PETERS Michael Peters is the author of Vaast Bin (Calamari Press, Fall 2007). Various manifestations of his written-sound-images have appeared in journals and books like Sleepingfish, Word for/Word, LUNGFULL!, Hyperrhiz: New Media Cultures, SPELL, Spinning Jenny, and Richard Kostelanetz's Dictionary of the Avant-Gardes.  His visual poetic structures can be found in various special collection libraries like the Sackner Archive; they have also appeared in numerous galleries and anthologies, such as the recent Ohio State Visual Poetry in the Avant Writing Collection and the Minnesota Center for Book Arts' Vispoeologee.  Most notably with Poem Rocket and the Be Blank Consort, aural manifestations of his sounds have appeared on recording labels such as Atavistic, PCP Entertainment, Magic Eye, and Luna Bisonte Prods. This appearance at Issue Project Room will be his third collaboration with Al Margolis.
