In 1993 and 1994, Ken Gregory, Steve Heimbecker and Shawn Pinchbeck met at various sound art happenings in western Canada.
Previously not knowing that each other were active in the prairies, they quickly realized that they had many things in common with their artistic practices
and their origins in the mid eighties in isolation in their respective prairie cities; Ken from Winnipeg Manitoba, Steve from Calgary Alberta,
and Shawn from Edmonton Alberta. In 1995, Steve and Shawn, because of their close proximity, started collaborating together regularly. Ken and Steve
both went to Edmonton several times in the mid to late ninties to perform and conduct workshops for the Boreal Electroacoustic Music Society(BEAMS)
of which Shawn was the president of at the time. This particular project started out in February 1998 with an invitation to Ken, Steve and Shawn to go to
emmedia in Calgary to do a week long collaborative residency ending with a concert at the Alberta College of Art and Design. The results were inspiring for all of them.
Ken arranged a concert in November 1998 at the Send and Receive  a festival of sound in Winnipeg. This recording is the result of that concert
and indeed a snapshot of the electroacoustic activities going on in the prairies at that time.
Born in Saskatchewan, now living in Montreal, Steve Heimbecker studied at the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary. In Canada since the early 1980's, Heimbecker has presented his fine art, audio art, new media installations, performances, and multi channel sound diffusion compositions in many diverse venues including art centres, festivals, museums, night clubs, and universities. He has authored several articles, reviews, and publications including audio cassettes, CDs and DVDs. His work is well documented throughout the internet. Recently in Europe he has exhibited at the Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki Finland, for the ISEA 2004 Wireless Exhibition. In Vienna, Austria, he performed at ORF Kunstradio for Die Lange Nacht der Radiokunst 2004, and was invited by Kunstradio to create his fifth audio art portrait of places 'Songs of Place: Vienna'. The first 4 portraits, all from Canada and co-published by OBORO and Qube Assemblage, Montreal, are now available on a 2 disc surround sound DVD box set and book work entitled, 'Songs of Place'. In 2005 Heimbecker's installation POD (Wind Array Cascade Machine) won an Honorary Mention in Interactive Media at Ars Electronica, Linz, Austria. Heimbecker's work has been supported by arts grants from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, the Canada Council for the Arts, Conseil des arts et des lettres Quebec, the Daniel Langlois Foundation, and the Saskatchewan Arts Board.
