Highway Coda

–Matt Mullins’ three-year old daughter just walked into the room wearing wire and nylon angel wings and told him to try harder. At what, she didn’t say. Matt lives in Muncie, Indiana, where he writes poetry, fiction, screenplays, makes experimental films, and builds interactive interfaces for his stories and poems. His writing has recently appeared in Pleiades, Hunger Mountain, Harpur Palate, Hobart, decomP, and kill author. He writes in what is essentially an attic with a single, cracked octagonal window through which he sees the world. He also reads too much into pointed yet ambiguous things said by children wearing wire and nylon angel wings. You can find pieces of him at mullmullingitover.blogspot.com.

–Michael Pounds holds degrees in composition from Ball State University, the University of Birmingham (England), and the University of Illinois.

His music has been performed throughout the US and abroad. He was a co-host of the 2005 SEAMUS national conference. Michael is the Assistant Director of the Music Technology program at Ball State University.
