10-01-10: back with the more
Moving right along, because that’s what we do.
Liz Glynn, in the last movement of her summer symphony “iii” invites you (all of us who make an effort to rsvp that is) to the closing performance, which is titled thusly:
OF BECOMING A SPIRIT-SOUL THERE | OF PLOUGHING THERE | OF REAPING THERE |
OF EATING THERE | OF DRINKING THERE | OF MAKING LOVE THERE |
AND OF DOING EVERYTHING THERE EVEN AS A MAN DOETH UPON EARTH
I posted a little about Glynn and her pyramid project (with helpful links) in my September 9 post.
During the course of this week leading up to the closing performance (which will include a participatory deconstruction of the wood pallette structure) Glynn is hosting a series of experiments transmitted live on internet radio at http://ubroadcast.com/channel/iii_-_liz_glynn these broadcasts of experiments or performances are scheduled on Saturday, October 2 at midnight; on Wednesday, October 6 at 9 PM. (And I at any rate missed the broadcast on Wednesday, September 29 at 9 PM)
The broadcast project is titled In and Out of the Underworld (Near Death / Out of Body)
Pyramid radio. I’m dangerously going off on my own here (meaning full steam ahead and damn the press releases!) but – as one who once listened to radio precisely because it was local and featured everything from deeply intellectual conversations about… politics, culture, religion, what have you (local and international history – literature – more!) to truly bizarre discussions of… oh god, all of the previously mentioned subjects plus ideas for home-made dog food, pro and con local restaurants, three and four hour long dialogues between radical conservatives and founding members of the LA Communist Party (from a broadcast booth in Glendale) and everything else that only needed to draw an audience of several hundred to be successful. In the last decades radio has become a huge network broadcast system that by design closes off discussion of anything that isn’t shallow and wide.
Were was I? Oh! Internet broadcast and Liz Glynn! I have no idea what we’ll hear. This fact alone makes me want to “tune in” on my computer. Knowing that Liz Glynn is in charge makes tuning in mandatory.
Thereby completely neglecting to directly invite you to rsvp by following this link to the Redling Fine Art site and press release about the October 9 closing ceremony. If you don’t try to make it you’ll never know what you missed.
