The Splatter Trio and I have co-written, co-produced, and co-published a new book of this name that accounts for our collaborative work together in the early 1990s as well as featuring 50 pages of my own writing from that period, almost none before published anywhere. The $30 product includes a CD with 40 studio tracks 100% improvised as an ensemble over a two-day period in 1992, as well as a link to bonus tracks available on line, at Rastacan, where the CD-book is being sold in an edition limited to 200. We are totally jazzed, as we all were knocked out by these recordings when we got round to hearing them three decades later.
I made a few video-readings in 2020 that I am very pleased with. Some were streaming and some were pre-recorded at home on my laptop. After accepting Orchid Tierney's invitation across her Facebook friends in March by making "Poetry Reading my Mind," I participated in a Brooklyn Rail Radical Poetry reading, in a Brooklyn Rail New Social Environment, improvising at the end of a long conversation on edges in artworks, and the Poetry Project's New Years Marathon Reading.
I responded to another invitation by recording an 85-minute talking reading on David W. Pritchard's SoundCloud-housed podcast, Raw Materials. David's made several outstanding recordings in 2020 exploring his own and others' poetics and products, and my intentions were to live up to his example as well as I could.
