In a week, I will be performing a fifteen minute performance work entitled “Chair Piece” as part of Studio: Spring 2014 at REDCAT on Saturday, May 31st and Sunday, June 1st. There are also five other artists on the program, with performances including experimental dance, improvisational guitar playing, and piñata smashing.
In anticipation and celebration, I’ve posted the Song of Yourselves album for free streaming and download. This album has all the spoken word and musical elements from Song of Yourselves, including Clint Eastwood’s address to the 2012 RNC, which “Chair Piece” is based on.
Performance still of "First Choice" from the opening of Dialogues of Practice, Part 1 at West Los Angeles College Gallery, March 14th, 2013.
My band from the early aughts, The Tokeleys, is featured as the intro and outro music on The Marc and Tom Show. The Marc and Tom show is a conversation between two greats of comedy broadcasting and podcasting: Marc Maron of WTF with Marc Maron, and Tom Scharpling of the Best Show on WFMU! I couldn’t be more proud to be marginally involved with this project. The song used is “Mausoleum”, and you can check it out and download for free (as part of the “Sons of Horus” album) in the Audio section of this site.
