Wei Zhongle is an experimental rock band from Carbondale, Illinois.

Nathalie Forget is an installation artist and currently a member of Ulan Bator. Nathalie’s performance, Kiss on a Mexican Stone, incorporates the Ondes Martenot, sheep wool, and obsidian stone. She uses sheep as a symbol because it not only represents the religious symbol of sacrifice, but a mystical symbol as well as an image of softness, warmth, and love.
