The work of Steev Hise and Mr. Meridies (aka Bob Boster) was first
brought together on Illegal Arts' "Deconstructing Beck" compilation (http://detritus.net/illegalart/beck ), which almost involved them in legal action by Beck's label. (Beck, an L.A. native and one-time Al's Bar
performer, is invited, by the way, to meet Steev and Bob at the Al's Bar
show, since his personal opinion of the compilation is still unknown.)

Steev Hise's work centers around appropriation and recontextualization of
pre-existing culture, in other words, making new art from the old. In
addition to his audio and video work, He is the designer and administrator
of detritus.net, a website dedicated to recycled culture. He has worked
with a variety of collaborators, including Wobbly, the Evolution Çontrol
Committee, the Flea Market Orchestra and Ears Under Siege. (see
http://detritus.net/steev for more info.)
Bob Boster is a composer, performer, and multi-media artist. His pseudonym
Mr. Meridies performs sound collage which can be consumed in a "pop" manner, but outside of the current popular modes of appropriation
(hip-hop, sample-oriented dance music, commercials, etc.). He has
collaborated with Wobbly, A.L. Dentel, Cheryl Leonard, Scott Rosenberg and
Vance Galloway among others. Recent projects include bouche, SignWave and
the Armageddon String Ensemble. (see http://detritus.net/meridies for more info.)
