Her voice can be heard, along with Ruth Maleczech, as the Android Sisters for ZBS productions. The Android Sisters also have a new Japanese CD, The Best of the Androids that comes with a 48 page booklet! Her new piece for ZBS is A Steampunk State Of Mind. A recent review of Ruby: The Adventures of a Galactic Gumshoe has a link for a free download of this first (1982) cyberpunk radio drama.

Ms. Vasilevski's performance with Nick Didkovsky's band Dr. Nerve in the unnerving audio spectacle The Monkey Farm is now available at iTunes. (Watch a video except.)

Valeria narrated the poems for Quimetta Perle's Poem Teller: a beaded and sequined oracle speaks poems from a painting. 2013, 34″x 52″, beads, sequins, acrylic, iPod/video. Poem Teller (6 minute excerpt).
