Biographical Info: I was born in St. Louis, Missouri in 1955. I became more and more interested in art, composition, peace, social justice, groups, and even science when I was teenager. Then I enrolled in the music department of the University of Illinois, a year too late for the Cybernetics of Cybernetics class but in time to meet Herbert Brün and encouragement for learning ways these interests—and people who shared them—could converge: Seminars in Experimental Composition, the American Society for Cybernetics, the United Mime Workers, Performers’ Workshop Ensemble, an anti-apartheid shantytown on the quad, Creative Cybernetics: Our Utopianists’ Audacious Constructions, School for Designing a Society, the 1999 protest against the World Trade Organization, the project to build a free hospital based on fun and friendship, community court watch, and other perturbances.
