Liane Halton and I are debuting new material this Friday, January 25 in a performance at DDC, where we’ve played twice before (but not since August). The show starts at 9 pm, and also includes three other fascinating poet-musician pairings:
David Bond and Matthew Byrne – Jaime Santirso
The Great Buffalo Blues – Zuo Fei
Oliver – Rainbow Machine (one of Liane’s other bands)
Liane and I, as always, will be playing original work, my poetry with her music. Here’s a sample track, Zhuangzi Dreams of a Butterfly:
The show on Friday will also include visuals from a visual jockey, Nina Dillenz, who studied theater, film, and media at the University of Vienna. This will be the first time she’s collaborating with us.
This page has more information about the show, including how to get tickets (50 RMB advance, 60 RMB door).
