Mike Smith of Albuquerque, is the author of many published essays, all of which are chapters from his in-progress two-volume experimental memoir Shadows of Clouds on the Mountains.

Mauro performs in the musical projects Chicharra (bass heavy desert experimental glam), Milch de la Maquina (experimental performance art troupe), LADY/XY and Lady Uranium (experimental desert New Wave) and Merma &Roberta (Sassy Garage Rock’n’Roll) to name a few. She is currently finishing her Bachelor’s degree with a BLA in Creative Practices in the Community and finishing her debut double-album, Dustland I and II. Check out Chicharra’s first two albums, Chicharra and Let’s Paint This Town in Craters and Lady Uranium’s EP, Vulpes Vulpes on Bandcamp. She released her second EP for Lady Uranium, Vulpes Macrotis, on Matron Records Halloween 2019. She lives and creates with writer, Michael Farrell Smith, three cats, lots of Toby plants, and four wickedly wonderful step-children.
