My new SCREENPLAY set up.  I wrote 6 pages of notes and redid my whole vinyl set up.  It’s too complicated to write down. If you see me, get me a glass of wine and I’ll explain the whole thing to you.Photobucket

LIVE PERFORMANCE from TORONTO, MAY 2010

A live performance from my latest tour, in Toronto.

This piece was originally performed in Ostrava, Czech Republic in October 2009 a day after I found out that Suzanne Fiol, director of Issue Project Room, passed away from cancer. Suzanne Fiol was a long time mentor and friend here in Brooklyn and it was devastating that she passed while I was so far away. I think of her everyday.

This piece, entitled “Burial Song” was my way of grieving for her. Vinyl used: Eskimo Chant Record (Folkways) with a 45 placed on top to create unintentional loops. This is what I think songs sound like in my head.
