San Francisco publisher of counterculture magazines and

Angry Women, Incredibly Strange Music, Incredibly Strange
Films, Search and Destroy, Pranks, Industrial Culture

Naut Humon has been the director of international
operations for RML, Asphodel Records, and AV curator for
select portions of the annual ARS Electronica Festival in
Austria. Recombinant Media Labs cultivates radical
methodologies and performative processes that expand
aesthetic and technological boundaries of immersive
installation and surround cinema. Naut performed with
the experimental music group "Rhythm & Noise" and is about
to debut a new cross-media collective known as "Careen
Ajar". For several decades, he's experimented with a wide
range of audience mobilization and extreme environments to
build bridges between audio and visual experiences.
The Recombinant Media Labs concept has emerged out beyond
these frames and is ready to take it to the streets.

Perry Hoberman is an installation artist who has worked
extensively with machines and media. His career has
included stints with Laurie Anderson and currently the
USC Interactive Media Division in LA. He has exhibited
internationally, with major shows throughout the USA and
Europe. His work is currently on view in the "Future Cinema"
exhibition at the ZKM Center for New Media in Karlsruhe.
Hoberman has been the recipient of numerous grants and
awards, and is both a 2002 Guggenheim Foundation Fellow
and a 2002 Rockefeller Foundation Media Art Fellow.
