2. Montreal ex-pat naw (Neil Wiernik) who currently calls Toronto his home, began composing electronic music in 1988 with explorations in audio art and experimental music. Neil's interest in sound and technology has lead him to a continued questioning and refinement of audio tools and modes of production resulting in experimentation with altered instruments, modified devices, and custom software environments. Neil's music could be described as warm, atmospheric, and cinematic electronic music. The sound design of naw is firmly grounded in the rich traditions of dub studio culture but can also be weighed alongside formal contemporary composition. His music was recently described in "The Wire" as having "…the kind of sharpness and clarity usually lost amid the murk and decay of clicks and cuts and digital delays." Neil has released music on various labels including Noise Factory and Sentient Sound.

In addition to his recording career Neil is an accomplished curator and digital media specialist, he has shown work in a variety of non-traditional spaces since the late 1980's and his projects have included works in radio, print, and internet diffusion as well as other non-gallery spaces including derelict buildings, billboards, pirate airwaves, and public space. Neil has presented projects at the Finland Contemporary Museum, ISEA, Subtle Technologies Conference, La SAT, The Medusa Complex, Mutek Festival and The Music Gallery. Neil also co-curates vagueterrain.net - an online digital arts quarterly.
