Release Party (La Cita)/ Toad Removed (Audio Track)

La Cita DTLA Tape Release Event

February 2, Tuesday I will be performing along other artist at La Cita's Experimental Night.  8pm no cover.

 In collaboration with Brennan Lowe part of my set will have video accompaniment. 

Part of the continuing Island of Misfit Toys night at La Cita, this event is also the Parallax Beach/ DivineBrick Tingo Tongo Tapes split tape release.  The tape contains recordings of sounds connected to movements of body once witnessed.  The audio can rightfully stand alone but without the movements that once occurred in tandem, the full concept and experience is lost.  In method of Corporeal Reformation each visceral performance can only have that one outcome.  Context and setting influences the movement.  Truth be told there is video of these particular performances, at a particular place, with movement repeated but not rehearsed, on my site.  Feel free to inquire.

Parallax Beach is a collaboration with Brennan Lowe (movement), josie j (movement), Mike Meanstreetz (sound), Zach Vidal (sound), and Wes Johansan (video).  The tape contains audio from Parallax Scroll a work that explores concepts of primordial beginnings.


The audio from my solo project DivineBrick is the audio from the winter west coast tour I went on in 2014.  Each track is an individual work with form and mood. Tracks also contain sound from the Butó Flutó a wooden/ electronic headware.  

Here is a sample track from the set.

Unfolding reforming a motion toward expansion. Meeting points in which this toad will be left for fine.  What will out last the green growth , the crawling friends, the moisture alive? A new form of exploration, fast, but rolling as a troll.  Finding shelter in destruction. Full round we have something oozing out the other end.  Still pulsing still growing. 

Accompaniment by the Butó Flutó.
