Crying in the ethnographic field recording
A lecture-performance which unravels the conflict between the body and language.
This tension is revealed as the recorded subjects deal with loss and mourning within different cultural spaces. To those present and listening attentively, the session provides a carefully staged experience for a psychic release.
Featuring recordings of the Bitterroot Salish, Bororo, Csango, Ekonda, Egyptian, Irish Tinkers, and Kaluli people.
A late night set of Atlanta rap featuring contemporary methods of oral transmission and immersion in bass.

Home recordings: first iteration
A lecture-performance work that takes as its focus the transition from oral tradition to oral transmission, and the role of recordings, radio waves, and telephonic communication in giving extended form to the linguistic ecosystems which help constitute our notions of home.
Featuring a selection of ethnographic and privately issued recordings from the artist’s home state of North Carolina including The Badgett Sisters, The Cherokeeans, Big Boy Henry, Algia Mae Hinton, Fred Reid, Dick Tillet, Mrs. General D. Watson, two unknown tobacco auctioneers, an uncredited hollerer, and an unnamed Cherokee man.
