Alexis O'Hara is a non-disciplined artist who has been known to publish words and images, perform dazzling feats of social engineering with participatory art actions, and paint elaborate landscapes with her words. She has also rocked the mic. Bass + pedals + tape + toys + LX6 = one great show. Active in the Montreal arts scene since her arrival from Geneva in '97, Alexis divides her time between spoken word, sound art, and live action art. She ran the Montreal Poetry Slam for three years and has performed in 35 cities across North America. In 1999, she placed ninth out of 250 poets at the 10th Annual National Poetry Slam in Chicago. Since then she has focussed on her art rock, in the noise band Jimmy Brain and solo. Alexis recently released a full-length CD, Abulia.
