Words travel over dark ambient noise soundscape.
There is another place where few tread. It is the landscape of dreams and surreal imagery. It is the knowledge that something magickal will happen. Combining my words with the contributions of various music / noise artists in Los Angeles, I would like to transport you to the place in your heart, mind, and body that triggers such things.
Writing and reading poetry in my teenage years was where it all began. I read words out loud in cafes in Los Angeles, Long Beach, Hollywood, and Las Vegas. Moving back from Las Vegas, I ran into my friend Carl Off of Hop-Frog Kollectiv, where he introduced me to the other members, and was invited to perform spoken word, play percussion, show my artwork, and run the visual arts projector at the one-of-a-kind Dung Mummy events in Los Angeles. Over the years I have also collaborated with Jeremy in Hop-Frog's Drum Jester Devotional, Carl Off in Refrigerator Mothers, Brian Redfern as Secret 49, where we performed music and spoken word with leanings toward the occult. Performed live one night with +Dog+. As of recent, I've performed with my daughter Alisa and Steve of Christ vs Warhol and Deadfly Ensemble hosted by Sander and Sumako.
It was Jeremy of Hop-Frog Kollectiv who, when I performed on his internet radio show recently, inspired me to finally record spoken word and music solo. This project is dedicated to Carl Off, Jeremy, Eric, Glenn (of Phaul), David Hazelton (RIP), Denise, Julie Off, Rev. Tommy, Em, Zoe, Cesar, Sander, Sumako, and all of my friends in Los Angeles who are audio / visual / spoken word artists.
