Thirty-five years a chorus for the stuck, worn, bound, & broken, 2012 & 2014
Vocal performance & CD.
Loosely adopting the format of a language instruction class, a husband and wife pair of singers repeatedly sung forty-six call-in, failing car onomatopoeias taken from the final year of broadcasting of NPR's Car Talk. A printed matter takeaway listed the phonetic spellings of the sounds with their suggested diagnoses. A studio recording of the sung phrases has been made available as a CD, preferably listened to, while one drives.
THE PERFORMANCE — Performed by Rachel and Alex Raven, 1 hour duration, Time, Body, Space, Objects 2, curated by Alice Vogler and Vela Phelan at Anthony Greaney, 20 October, 2012. PDF (takeaway).
THE CD — 46 tracks, 7 minutes, edition of 100. Audio (excerpt).
