Nerve Theory's "Shades of Catatonia" is a scorching critique of today's
24X7 commercial culture, the culture of utility and convenience where
audiences are manipulated and assaulted by a tidal wave of psychological
warfare waged by advertisers, broadcasters, studios, telecoms, governments
and schools.  Nerve Theory reveals the trauma and in its unique 'news
music' offers strategies for recovering minds incapacitated by command

Loibner and Sherman have been dealing with the psychology of alienated,
dislocated individuals in their collaborative voice/music works since
1993.  Bernhard Loibner is a composer, musician and sound freak based in
Vienna, Austria.  Tom Sherman, based in Syracuse, NY, where he teaches
media production and theory courses at Syracuse University, specializes in
improvisational monologues for radio and live performance.  Loibner and
Sherman formed Nerve Theory in 1998.
