EMS welcomes Thomas Bey William Bailey for a couple of weeks in September! He is a sound artist, author, and educator who has worked and lived in Japan, Spain, Central Europe and various U.S. locales. His output in both text and audio media has focused heavily upon the extremes of information, and on the identification of what is truly meaningful and constructive within the conditions of information saturation and deprivation.
