A performance art as business website?

Seeking an artist's webpage: she or he has a unique business model of direct commissions via PayPal for actions at different price levels (will write a note, will travel to place X and take a photograph, send the photo to you, etc). None of my search keywords are turning it up ... ring any bells?

Strange Voices

Recommend some music like Bon Iver's Woods, Imogen Heap's Hide and Seek, Beardyman, and some of Jamie Lidell - which feature nothing (or very little) but the human voice modified by electronics. Augmented acapellas, if you will.
