About our upcoming performance this Friday at Issue Project Room with an MP3 of our last performance @ White Box Gallery:
CHRISTIAN MARCLAY: FESTIVAL @ the WHITNEY MUSEUM
SOUNDCHECK, the day before Press day with Alan Licht:
A volunteer working on soundcheck. Christian was involved in every aspect of the show. Down to the boxes that the chalk was to be placed in for CHALKBOARD, 2010.
My soundcheck set up. TOTALLY different from my SCREENPLAY setup. I was figuring myself out. Cut me some “Marclay” slack..
I love this window.

The first SCREENPLAY team: Ulrich Grieger, Alan Licht and Maria Chavez.
SCREENPLAY, evening Day 1
Was swept away by Shelley Burgon to go to the the new Brookyln Bridge Park to see Prince Rama perform for Issue Project Room and the Walt Whitman festival..
More of the rest of my time at the Whitney Museum, coming next week.
From Kill Devil Hill, this awesome portrait of George Washington. Give it to me.
Or this Native American tapestry:
Loved this old shot of a hummingbird from an old photo album.
My friend, Mike Wexler and his band, layin’ it down.
I liked this SoHo trash placement.
Helped with a photoshoot, was fun.
Matthew Ames. Modern perfection.
Their inspiration for the shoot.

Met a miniature Husky the next day. Almost died.
Coming up! My behind the scenes photos from Christian Marclay’s show at the Whitney Museum. Was an incredible time. Serious.
Here are some links to the latest reviews about Christian Marclay’s show that is up at the Whitney Museum from now until September. I was invited to perform 10 times for the first 2 weeks of his graphic video score, Screen Play. Pictures and video of my time there is coming soon.
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.
