Thirty-five years a chorus for the stuck, worn, bound, & broken, 2012 & 2014
Vocal performance & audio compact disc.
First realized for a performance exhibition that fell on a date within the same month of the end of live broadcasting of NPR's celebrated radio show, Car Talk. This performance loosely adopted the format of a language instruction class as a husband and wife pair of singers continually sung forty-six call-in, failing car onomatopoeias taken from the final year of broadcasting. A printed matter takeaway listed the phonetic spellings of the sounds with their suggested diagnoses.
A studio recording of the vocal performance has been made available for purchase. It is suggested that one listen to the score in its entirety while driving.
THE PERFORMANCE — 1 hour duration for Time, Body, Space, Objects 2, curated by Alice Vogler and Vela Phelan at Anthony Greaney on 20 October, 2012. Vocal performance by Rachel and Alex Raven.
THE CD — 46 tracks across 7 minutes, limited edition of 100.
