Short biography: 

Jamie Allen makes interactive art and sound makers with his head and hands. He believes technology will one day allow us to circumvent and reinvent traditional, commercial and hierarchical relationships to art and performance. His work in digital design, music, performance and public art creates physical relationships between people and with media. (heavyside.net)
