pz on Reina Sofia Terrace dears:
The first half of 2009 has truly been a roller coaster ride for everyone, hasn’t it? Financially, politically, healthwise, and otherwise... For me, that ride included stops for performances in New York, Los Angeles, San Diego, Sarasota Florida, and Madrid Spain, with lots of dipping back into the SF Bay Area in between. My most recent adventures included YUXTAPOSICIONES '09 microfestival de poesía y polipoesía, a lovely festival in Madrid that featured myself, Joan La Barbara, Anne Waldman, and a number of fascinating European text-sound poets. I have to tell you, those Spaniards never sleep! After each evening, there was extensive bar and cafe hopping, and heads rarely hit pillows before 5am. Still I managed to visit las pinturas negras de Goya at the Prado and an inspiring Juan Muñoz exhibition at the Reina Sofia. Then it was off for a quick Gothenburg visit filled with Swedish herring snacks, snaps of many flavors, MAX geek-outs and seaside walks all courtesy of Åke Parmerud. This time of year it stays light out until 10pm and the sun rises at around 3:30am there!

...Back in the Bay Area now, I’m maintaining my frenetic pace – working to complete the score for Jo Kreiter’s new dance work “The Ballad of Polly Ann”, while trying to get started on my new interdisciplinary work “Baggage Allowance” which will have bicoastal premieres next year. And...I’m gearing up for several events including a couple of solo performances. Read on for the details....
