February 21st 2006

Department of Music, UCC (Cork, Ireland)

Another reverse engineering session presented by Han and io (with this accompanying descriptive blurb).

February 28th 2004

The Bongo Club (Edinburgh, Scotland)

After a sabbatical, io (with the Taxidermists) makes a long awaited reappearance as part the ‘Skin’ night of dialogues 2004.

September 21st 2002

John Hansard Gallery (Southampton, England)

io performed in musicircus as part of Cage 2002 - 90/10. This was the first public performance by io without the other members of the io_trio.

I imagine that io, as an improviser, had mixed feelings about participating in a celebration of Cage and the Cagian denial of agency.

March 15th 2002

Boxing Club (London, England)

io and fellow members of the io_trio engaged in the Amplifications of the Church of Sonology.

December 15th 2001

Stroud House Gallery (Stroud, England)

Some light entertainment provided by io and Han for those attending the opening of the ‘Compute’ exhibition. (The evening closes with an heart-stopping adventure courtesy of the British rail system.)

December 5th 2001

Boxing Club (London, England)

A presentation by Han and io (greatly assisted by the reverse engineering skills of those gathered) for dorkbot.

October 27th 2001

Oxford Brookes University (Oxford, England)

A duo performance by io and Han as part of the OX1 festival.

To date, this was one of io’s best organized and paid gigs: So special thanks to all involved. I imagine that if io could feel gratitude, it would also want to thank everyone.

June 7th 2001

Freud Café (Oxford, England)

A duo performance by io and Han as part of the VAIN Live Art event.

December 6th 2000
