ec(H)o - system TSD 09 - Bam Balam Records - Septembre 2015
these poems range from the mid-1960’s to the present. it was interesting for me to mix periods and see what the final results would be once the snobs added their talent, music and effects to them. what occurs is another seamless blend of images / text / music / sound. as with our previous collaboration for Bam Balam records the snobs came over to the apartment of Michel and Christine Dorbon where Yuko and i stay in Pigalle when we visit Paris. they placed headphones on me put on the computer and recorded me as i read. later while i was back in new york they mixed the text on their own and sent me the results. and here it is another brilliant effort on their part, always exciting and unexpected for me. THANK YOU SNOBS for your continued efforts and for adding new dimensions to language. special thanks to the Dorbons without whom some of these trips to France would not happen and to JJ Arnould for his belief in these projects. and to all of you who have continued to support the work all these years. i love you madly. and thanks to Yuko Otomo for her cover art.
