BIOS -

Mark Frauenfelder, is a writer and illustrator living in Los Angeles, and the editor-in-chief of MAKE magazine (see makezine.com). He is the founder of the popular blog boingboing.net (which has won top awards for three years running at the SXSW conference) and was an editor at Wired from 1993-1998.

For several years, he wrote a monthly technology column for Playboy magazine and has written for The New York Times Magazine, Popular Science, The Hollywood Reporter, and Business 2.0.

Mark is the author of several books, including The Happy Mutant Handbook (1995, Riverhead) a guide to offbeat pop culture, Mad Professor (2003, Chronicle) a book of bizarre science experiments for kids, World’s Worst (2005, Chronicle) a guide to the worst stuff on Earth, The Computer, an illustrated history of computers (2005, Carlton books), and a guide to online tricks and tips, called Rule the Web (2007, St. Martins).

His illustrations have appeared in Wired, The Industry Standard, Children’s Television Workshop, Turner Cable, and Time Warner.

Mark has a degree in mechanical engineering and worked in the diskdrive industry in the 1980s.

Jeff Boynton, brings multiple Roland Microcube amps (as many 16) and distributes them throughout the entire space - on the floor, suspended with chains, sitting on shelves, etc. Each circuit bent instrument has it's own amp. It becomes a sort of "surround environment" but with way more "channels". Jeff has built dozens of amazing instruments based on discarded consumer products. He's performed at events ranging from Disney Hall openings to the Doo-Dah Parade. He was in the 80's New Wave band Wazmo Nariz and opened for The Police, Devo and the B-52's.
