audio and images from recent solo performance

On Saturday I performed a live solo set in Chicago at Hotti Biscotti. Other performers included Mister Fuckhead, Milkbaby and a guy who performed with circuit bent toys (I don't remember what name he went by).

All performances were accompanied by video, most constructed live. Video artists included Richard Syska, the Reeves Machine and Brain Klein. The videos were all completely spectacular and helped make for a great night of performances overall.

I created live audio accompaniment for Kenneth Anger's film "Lucifer Rising" using only my voice as an instrument. Here are a couple of audio excerpts - the sound is a bit poor, and you'll have to turn the volume up considerably in order to hear any of the low-end:

approximately 10 1/2 minutes into the set - 2:33, 192 kbps mp3 file - 3.51 megs

approximately 17 minutes into the set - 4:08, 192 kbps mp3 file - 5.69 megs

and two snapshots of myself screaming into a couple of microphones:
