I seem to be making a habit of playing at art openings, this week I’ll be at the Centre Pompidou in Paris in the context of an exhibition on the No Wave scene in New York entitled ” Who are you staring at ? ” The opening is on Wednesday 01 February at 7pm. I go on around 8pm.

I’ll be presenting an excerpt from my new solo for transverse flutes (alto and C) and eletric guitar.

The exhibition will include art, posters, books and video by/on Kathy Acker, Ida Applebroog, Karole Armitage/me, Beth B and Scott B, Glenn Branca/Dan Graham, Vivienne Dick, Barbara Ess, Joseph Nechvatal, Raymond Pettibon and sound excerpts from Arto Lindsay, Live Skull, Sonic Youth and more.

There will be an excerpt playing continuously from XS, an opera by Joseph Nechvatal with music from yours truly.

The opening was a success! It was well attended and a grand time was had by all. The artist Chrystel Egal was at the performance and made a little film to document it:
