      >>BENEDICTION<<
I. The Technitronic Widowmakers DragON © 1977 By travis
      Black, therewithal without moonbeam gazed I
      Upon some blazing Countenance set free
      Entranced here held full high a cashmere sky
      Unstirred, invoked. Before her there a tree
      Sprang forth. Old Age bemoaned (in bloom)
      Her fruit: Truth: Sudden shadowplay in dream
      No more! Forlorn? I know not, only doom
     
[[That veils compel Nirvana, graven, gleam
      Perchance this Dragon’s vanity, God’s Tongue.
      Illumined like his father’s sad delight,
      A martyred Verse, a ruthless, silv’ry night
      Indulged ‘til, limpid, Truth had fast too long;]]
      As Vespers eve widows followed here on.
      So strong an omen yet; too weak to run.

II. <<INVOCATION>>       Invocation  © 1980 by Grego/travis
      GREETINGS! GREETINGS! From the prison plantation

=travis  PERFORMING
"MOUTH OF DARKNESS"     
      ABOUT MOUTH OF DARKNESS:
“La Bouche d’ombre”/Mouth Of Darkness was Arthur Rimbaud’s (20OCT1854-10NOV1891)
name for his overbearing mother.
      Thanks to European Colonialism, French was the second most popular language amongst
Black people at the end of the 20th Century.
      From 1791-1804 Haitian Blacks fought for Independence from French Bondage.
In 1804, Haiti Won the War against Napoleon. Nevertheless, the World’s Strongest Military
Powers Forced HAITI To PAY FRANCE a Century Of Reparations; Devastating the Haitian
Economy to the present day.
      From 1844-1850 Rimbaud’s father fought in the “Conquest Of [Black] Algeria.”
      From 1880-1891, Arthur Rimbaud traded in coffee, firearms and Black flesh in [Black]
                Ethiopia including victims referred to as his “NIGGER QUEEN.”
      This performance ends on 16JAN1980! BLACK Classical Composer, Pianist, Vocalist,
Choreographer and Dancer, Julius Eastman (27AUG1940-28MAY1990), was caused to
justify using “NIGGER” at the World Premiere of his work “Evil Nigger” at my alma mater,
Northwestern University/Pick-Staiger Auditorium. I was present.
      Fast Forward: In 1979, and again in 2015, the title of my work “THE NIGGER QUEEN”
      was censored.

“TO MY DEAR FRIEND......

O thou my friend! The prosperity of Crime is like unto the lightning, whose traitorous brilliancies
embellish the atmosphere but for an instant, in order to hurl into death's very depths the luckless
one they have dazzled= it is only Vice that trembles when Vice is found out, and cries scandal
immediately it is attacked.”
=ZADA [Cymbals Crash // Maracas // Slide guitar // Trombone syncopated // Harmonium wheezes]

ZADA!  Every stormy morning.   Thirteen or so lay rusted now.   Some wear the Red Cross.

Get it over with befo’  cockcrow.
(What’s missing?)   One axe each and the son of White Boy:

=NARRATOR:
Juliette had just attained her twentieth year when a certain === gentleman out of Anjou, about
forty years of age, became so captivated by her he resolved to bestow his name upon her;
he awarded her an income of twelve thousand pounds and assured her of the rest of his fortune
were he to be the first to die; he gave her, as well, a house, servants, lackeys, and the sort of mundane
consideration which, in the space of two or three years, succeeded in causing her beginnings to be forgot.

=ZEK [Tribal beats // Low tones from all // Gong sounds: band is silent]

The men are gone.   Gone to the mountain.   ZEK.   ZEK, the king, home to the hourglass.
Back  to the belly.   Back to the Army!   Dose  upon  dose.  //  Dose upon dose.   
ZEK!  The men are gone.  It’s over.  The Circus is ended now!    
And in the Army, seeds of my sincerity fuel the algae.  
=NARRATOR:  
I had about a woman, probably forty years old, as celebrated for her beauty as for the variety and number
of her villainies; she was called Dubois  ===  on the eve of paying the capital penalty, but as to the exact
form of it the judges were yet mightily perplexed: having rendered herself guilty of every imaginable crime,
they found themselves virtually obliged to invent a new torture for her, or to expose her to one whence we
ordinarily exempt our sex. This woman had become interested in me, criminally interested without doubt,
since the basis of her feelings, as I learned afterward, was her extreme desire to make a proselyte of me.

=ZORIANA AMALGAMATA [Tapes // Vocal sounds // Bells // GONG sounds]
ZORIANA.    AMALGAMATA.   (3X)

She moves with the sun.    ZEK would bury her king now give up the young.  
[NARRATOR Moves Forward:] 
The third bade me mount upon and straddle two somewhat separated chairs and, seating himself betwixt them,
excited by Dubois, lying in his arms, he had me bend until his mouth was directly below the temple of Nature;
never will you imagine, Madame, what this obscene mortal took it into his head to do; willy-nilly, I was obliged
to satisfy his every need.... Just Heaven! what man, no matter how depraved, can taste an instant of pleasure
in such things....I did what he wished, inundated him, and my complete submission procured this foul man an
intoxication of which he was incapable without this infamy. The fourth attached strings to all parts of me to
which it was possible to tie them, he held the ends in his hands and sat down seven or eight feet from my body;
Dubois' touches and kisses excited him prodigiously; I was standing erect: 'twas by sharp tugs now on this
string, now on some other that the savage irritated his pleasures; I swayed, I lost balance again and again,
he flew into an ecstasy each time tottered; finally, he pulled all the cords at once, I fell to the floor in front
of him: such was his design: and my fore-head, my breast, my cheeks received the proofs of a delirium he
owed to none but this mania. That is what I suffered, Madame  ===   The following day we fell hard by
Louvres, sleeping under haystacks; I felt in need of Dubois' support and wanted to pass the night by her side;
but it seemed she had planned to employ it otherwise than protecting my virtue from the attacks I dreaded;
three of the thieves surrounded her and before my very eyes the abominable creature gave herself to all three
simultaneously. The fourth approached me; it was the captain. "Lovely Therese," said he, "I hope you shall not
refuse me at least the pleasure of spending the night with you?" and as he perceive my extreme unwillingness,
"fear not," he went on; "we'll have a chat together, and I will attempt nothing without your consent. "O Therese,"
cried he, folding me in his arms, " 'tis all foolishness, don't you know, to be so pretentious with us. Why are you
concerned to guard your purity in our midst? Even were we to agree to respect it, could it be compatible with the
interests of the band….”

Jim Darby and Marquell Smith tell their personal stories, and

Who owns the stone in your heart      Teach me how to grieve you
Sinners I can see through and shed    Jesus gonna make up my dyin’ bed.
Who owns the stone in your heart
I told the gypsy JuJu you are wrong    I work for love ‘cause PawPaw turn to stone
You recall Oshun brawls in the dark     Paradise Lost picked apart; BUT overhead
Lovers I can see through and shed        Jesus gonna make up my dyin’ bed.

She brings down the Saints & Then all eternity
Gods & Demons: Sentimental Predetermination
   Silent thickets inside my head                       Soon you will be dead

John:
Missed you at The Bijou Theatre & Sex Club. The Oldest Gay Porn Theatre In The U.S.
Indeed it was a researcher’s dream. A brief description of the ONO performance might
hint at ideas for your presentation!
===INTRODUCED by The Bijou Theatre Host. A beautiful, 6’2" boy dressed to the teeth,
wearing a black tux complete with 100% white cotton shirt and hand-tied black bow tie!
Lights OUT!
===Noise from P.Michael/Beats and Drone & from Brett Naucke/Synthesizer.
===Flood lights from large yellow flash lamps held by ONO members seated in the audience.
Lights first surveille the audience members, seated in darkness, except for the red running lights
on the floor and along the ceiling.
Flood lights then surveille travis, entering through the rear, behind the audience via the single aisle.
===Costuming: Black, leather, floor length coat, body-hugging gathers at the waist but flaring into a, billowy skirt.
White gloves. White panty hose masking hair, head and face. Red/Black patent leather GBX/London “Creepers.”
Traditional white cotton shirt; formal bow tie.
WORDS: “Love is not all. It is not meat, or drink. Nor slumber. Nor a roof against the rain.
Nor yet a floating spar to men that rise and sink and rise and sink again….” (REPEATED)
Source: Edna St. Vincent Millay
      Love is not all: it is not meat nor drink//Nor slumber nor a roof against the rain;
      Nor yet a floating spar to men that sink//And rise and sink and rise and sink again;
      Love can not fill the thickened lung with breath,//Nor clean the blood, nor set the fractured bone;
      Yet many a man is making friends with death//Even as I speak, for lack of love alone.
      It well may be that in a difficult hour,//Pinned down by pain and moaning for release,
      Or nagged by want past resolution's power,//I might be driven to sell your love for peace,
      Or trade the memory of this night for food.//It well may be. I do not think I would.
Flood lights illuminate the speaker’s processional to the stage.
ON STAGE:
Vintage Pornography begins. Films play for the duration of the ONO performance!
“Love Letters” (Ketty Lester Version) Accomp: P.Michael/Rebecca/Brett. Rest of ONO are still in Audience!
      Love letters straight from your heart
      Keep us so near while apart
      I'm not alone in the night
      When I can have all the love you write
      I memorize ev'ry line
      I kiss the name that you sign
      And darlin, then I read again right from the start
      Love letters straight from your heart

NOISE Builds into heavy riffs of “Billy The Kid.”

"Billy The Kid" © 1977-78 by travis. //Published: Modern Images #41]
2013 version: Words: travis.djPTSD/NOISE:ONO
      Billy The Kid In Silver City Apartment 7//Hot blood dripping dripping passion
      Saffron Mythra; mistress with many feet//Saffron prayer. Drifting tired.
      Billy The Kid. Mistress With Many Feet.
      Legs wide open//Mummy mother welcomes me
      Screaming eyes to Ajna//Point the light of Heaven.
      Billy The Kid. Mistress With Many Feet.
      Hoofbeats. .88[CALIBRE] dim lit spaces//Consecrate my love’s host.
      Fine misty sweet air songs//Reveal Haloes of fresh new blood.
===Costuming/travis: Black leather full-length coat disappears, revealing
White silk panties worn over tights. White gloves.
===NOISE transitions into the strong beats backing “Calvin."
CALVIN © 2012 Words:travis/NOISE:ONO
      Calvin: I know that you can never love me//Soon you will be dead.
      Lash out your Love of God refrain for me//Soon you will be dead.
      Our little Faith is now 16//Screams of terrain & fearful camouflage
      She brings down the Saints & Then all eternity//Gods & Demons:
      Sentimental Predetermination
      Silent thickets inside my head//Soon you will be dead (3X)
      II. When did the firelight leave your eye//Sunrise Sunset waft across your bed
      Sky of blue blood Flesh like lead//Soon you will be dead
      Calvin: I know that you can never love me//Soon you will be dead. (REPEAT)
=As the last lines of “Calvin" devolved into a chant/drone, beats announced “Heroin.”
===Costuming/travis: Full-length POLY/Juno frock featuring three layers of
off-white silk organza over a layer of white tulle.
HEROIN (Lou Reed) Updated to reflect 1963-69/djPTSD experience:
HEROIN Velvet Underground
I don't know just where I'm going//But I'm goin' to try for the kingdom if I can
'Cause it makes me feel like I'm a man//When I put a spike into my vein
Then I tell you things aren't quite the same
When I'm rushing on my run And I feel just like Jesus' son
And I guess I just don't know (2X)
I have made big decision//I'm goin' to try to nullify my life
'Cause when the blood begins to flow//When it shoots up the dropper's neck
When I'm closing in on death
You can't help me not you guys & All you sweet girls with all your sweet talk
You can all go take a fuckin walk//LORD/Lord/Lord!!! I guess I just don't know
===Costuming/travis: RAGGEDY!/Broken full-length frock with layers-upon-layer of pink silk!
[I was born a thousand years ago
I have sailed. I’ve sailed the darkened seas//On a great big clipper ship
Aboard USS America (CVA66)//1965 to1969 //Going from this land
here to that//I still wear my sailor's suit and cap]
Away from the big city//Where a man cannot be free
Of all the evils in this town//And of himself and those around//I guess I just don't know.
Heroin, be the death of me//Heroin, it's my wife and it's my life
Because a mainer to my vein//Leads to a center in my head
And then I'm better off than dead
When the smack begins to flow: I really don't care no mo
About all the Jim-Jims in this town//And everybody putting everybody else down
And all of the politicians makin' crazy sounds//All the dead bodies piled up in mounds
All the dead bodies piled up in mounds//All the dead bodies piled up in mounds//All the dead bodies . [REPEAT/REPEAT/REPEAT]
Now, that heroin is in my blood//And the blood is in my head//I thank God that I'm good as dead
I thank your God that I'm not aware//And thank God that I just don't care
Heroin!Heroin!Heroin!Heroin!Heroin!Heroin!Heroin!Heroin!Heroin!Heroin!Heroin!Heroin!Heroin!Heroin!
At the end of the ONO performance, the on-screen characters exploded in a cum-drenched climax.
Audience were stunned. They thought we planned it! We didn’t even know what would be screened.
(NOTE: I glimpsed the screen only once. Made me horny. I was stage horny already from fabulous fabrics.)
P.Michael gave the lovely, and very beautiful women in charge (and JB) carte blanche to screen
their favorite ‘70s-‘80s adult sex scenes. They did well. Throughout the show there was a very
mysterious synchronicity ’twixt words/Noise and visual imagery. I am now inundated with new FB Friends.

Windy City Rock returns for another fundraiser, this time for Intuit:
The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art. Intuit is a member-supported and
donation-funded organization dedicated to "presenting self-taught and
outsider art — with world class exhibitions; resources for scholars and students;
a permanent collection with holdings of more than 1,100 works of art...
and educational programming for people of all interest levels and backgrounds."

CROWN LARKS got its start in a dank Chicago basement in late 2012.
Saxophone, guitar, clarinet, voices, noises, fuzzed out space organ and electric piano caravan
form volume hypnosis, feedback death rattles, psychedelicate chamber music space lullabies
and damage control against drums channeling grooves from motorik to Motown to Mitch Mitchell.
Comprised of players from Chicago’s experimental and metal scenes, MAKO SICA create beautifully
textured songs that walk along the border of experimentation while never losing themselves to
mindless abstraction.
DJPTSD is the solo project of ONO's TRAVIS TRAVIS, and if you're down with the kind of sonic
mindfuckery his legendary underground punk band has rustled up over the last thirty years,
then his bizarro noise and spoken-word performance here tonight will surely be titillating.
Majestic folky MUYASSAR KURDI, aka THE HUMMINBIRD, brings the freaky and psychedelic out tonight
with her unique blend of spiritual, backwoods singer-songwriter tuneage that’s all acid-trip meets vision quest.
Be sure and check out KURDI's newest solo release, Beyond the Orchard.

TOUPEE return to our stage tonight to for the first time since
that bonkers OOZING WOUND record release in October.
Having become one of our favorite up-and-coming local bands
this year, the four-piece released their debut LP in January,
a collection of battered and bruised punk rock, out on Rotted Tooth.
Raw, noisy and, at times, dangerous, TOUPEE are a treat live – a treat
wrapped in barbed wire ready to explode the instant it touches your lips.
It's the return of PLASTIC CRIMEWAVE SOUND! A local space-punk trio
who've graced our stage numerous times, this STEVE KRAKOW-fronted
beast last played the Bottle opening for the legendary ROCKET FROM
THE TOMBS way back in December 2011. Tonight they're celebrating the
release of their newest record, out on Priority Male, so be sure and pick up
a copy while you're here. Legends of the Chicago underground,
ONO make their triumphant return to the Bottle tonight and are sure to wow
all in attendance like they have before. They've remained outsiders in a
sea of outsiders, and if you've seen em before you know what to expect:
sparse electronic beats, saxophone skronk, theatrical vocals and oddball
bass riffs. ONO are heroes to many and they will never die.
Minimal synth songstress MATCHESS, aka WHITNEY JOHNSON from
VERMA and E+, opens the show with a set of sparse rhythms, synthetic melodies,
squealing guitar lines and heavily-affected vocals that combine to create an
alien, futuristic sound.
This is a show for the ages - absolutely do not miss it, kids. UNQUOTE

Mary Shelley / FRANKENSTEIN
“I, the miserable and the abandoned, am an abortion, to be spurned at,
and kicked, and trampled on.
My imagination, unbidden, possessed and guided me, gifting the successive images
that arose in my mind with vividness far beyond the usual bounds of reverie.
I saw -- with shut eyes, but acute mental vision,
I saw the pale student of unhallowed arts kneeling beside the thing he had put together.
I saw the hideous phantasm of a man stretched out, and then, on the working of some
powerful engine, show signs of life, and stir with an uneasy, half vital motion.
Frightful must it be; for supremely frightful would be the effect of any human endeavour
to mock the stupendous mechanism of the Creator of the world.
His success would terrify the artist; he would rush away from his odious handywork,
horror-stricken.
He would hope that, left to itself, the slight spark of life which he had communicated
would fade; that this thing, which had received such imperfect animation, would subside
into dead matter; and he might sleep in the belief that the silence of the grave would
quench forever the transient existence of the hideous corpse which he had looked upon
as the cradle of life.
He sleeps; but he is awakened; he opens his eyes;
behold the horrid thing stands at his bedside, opening his curtains, and looking on him
with yellow, watery, but speculative eyes.”

NOTE:  
      ONO Performance Abruptly Terminated By University Police Just After Midnight! (0020?)
      Show began 1.5 hrs late due to Storms. Rain and wind and weather.
      "Rains of biblical proportions." Car crashes. Pedestrians running for shelter.
      Branches upon cars. Impassable viaducts. Motorists stranded therein. Flooding on
      Lake Shore Drive and on lesser roadways. Near-zero visibility. Cars on curbs; drivers
      unable to determine roadway. Hydroplaning. From 1900 - 2100, continuous rain.
      The HIVE, which "never had flooding," suddenly! and dramatically! had nearly 2" of
      flood water. Everyone carried mops, buckets, towels, cardboard; moved equipment;
      etc. ONO fans from North Side representing! Ben Billingsley and entourage!
      Just before 2230, first band played. ONO, headline act, played full tilt to a full basement
      when University Police closed down the venue "or $500 fine."

*    GWENN-AEL-LYNN   ON   HYBRIDITY
      The six "Scents" presented in "ONO   BLACKPOWER.MOV"  stem from a
body of sonic work, created by travis (NOV12 - JAN13) at the request of
Gwenn-Ael-Lynn's  HYBRIDITY: "Creolization" project of 2009 - 2013.
For this project, Gwenn approached a number of artists to compose
sonics to support a series of Scents.
Gwenn-Ael-Lynn's Description of his project:
     QUOTE
In 2009 and 2010 I met, and engaged Chicago residents who identify
as hybrid, and asked them to relate their experience to scents.
In other words, community members who are mixed race, mixed culture,
transgender, bi-lingual or tri-lingual, and especially people who, through
personal experience, have come up with their own definition of hybridity.
If you are curious about this notion of hyrbidity (or creolization as I prefer
to call it) you are welcome to read the beginning of this online interview,
which goes more in depth about this experience:

Ne me quitte pas
Il faut oublier
Tout peut s'oublier
Qui s'enfuit déjà
Oublier le temps
Des malentendus
Et le temps perdu
A savoir comment
Oublier ces heures
Qui tuaient parfois
A coups de pourquoi
Le cœur du bonheur
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas

Moi je t'offrirai
Des perles de pluie
Venues de pays
Où il ne pleut pas
Je creuserai la terre
Jusqu'après ma mort
Pour couvrir ton corps
D'or et de lumière
Je ferai un domaine
Où l'amour sera roi
Où l'amour sera loi
Où tu seras reine
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas

Ne me quitte pas
Je t'inventerai
Des mots insensés
Que tu comprendras
Je te parlerai
De ces amants-là
Qui ont vu deux fois
Leurs cœurs s'embraser
Je te raconterai
L'histoire de ce roi
Mort de n'avoir pas
Pu te rencontrer
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas

On a vu souvent
Rejaillir le feu
D'un ancien volcan
Qu'on croyait trop vieux
Il est paraît-il
Des terres brûlées
Donnant plus de blé
Qu'un meilleur avril
Et quand vient le soir
Pour qu'un ciel flamboie
Le rouge et le noir
Ne s'épousent-ils pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas

Ne me quitte pas
Je ne vais plus pleurer
Je ne vais plus parler
Je me cacherai là
A te regarder
Danser et sourire
Et à t'écouter
Chanter et puis rire
Laisse-moi devenir
L'ombre de ton ombre
L'ombre de ta main
L'ombre de ton chien
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas.

Do not leave me now
We must just forget
Yes, we can forget
All that’s flown beyond
Let’s forget the time
The misunderstands
And the wasted time
To find out how
To forget these hours
Which sometimes kill
The blows of why,
A heart full of joy.
Do not leave me now
Do not leave me now
Do not leave me now
Do not leave me now

I offer you
Pearls of rain
Coming from the lands
Where it never rains
I will cross the world
Till after my death
To cover your bosom
With gold and light
I will make a kingdom
where love will be king
Where love will be the law
Where you will be queen
Do not leave me now
Do not leave me now
Do not leave me now
Do not leave me now

Do not leave me now,
Will invent for you
The insane words
That you’ll understand
And I will tell you
Of these lovers who
Were seen twice
With their hearts in blaze
I will say in detail
The story of this king
Dead, from having not
Encountered you.
Do not leave me now
Do not leave me now
Do not leave me now
Do not leave me now

One often recalls
Flames light anew
From an old volcano
Thought to be too old.
It appears that
The scorched fields
Can give more corn
Than the best of springs.
And when evening comes
In this blazing sky
The red and the night
Marry nevermore.
Do not leave me now
Do not leave me now
Do not leave me now
Do not leave me now

Do not leave me now
I will cry no more
I will talk no more
Will hide somehow
Just to look at you
Dance and smile
And to hear you
Sing and then laugh
Let me be for you
The shadow of your shadow
The shadow of your hand
The shadow of your dog
Do not leave me now
Do not leave me now
Do not leave me now
Do not leave me now

Exhibition Title:                  ONO     For   KARINA NATIS
                                          
                                          LYMPHOMANIA II

DUST BOWL

“Chances are, you've been in a photograph by Karina Natis.
You might not know it. You might not know her. You might be
a flailing limb, a shock of falling hair, drowned in a swath of light,
capsized in a pool of sweat, blood, or beer. But you're there.

In June, Karina was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's B-cell Lymphoma,
manifesting as a six-inch tumor between her left lung and heart.
After 18 weeks of chemotherapy, her tumor has all but disappeared,
and a final month of radiation treatment will hopefully cure her for good.

Like so many thousands of people in this country and many of us in
the underground music community, Karina is uninsured, and the cost
of the chemotherapy alone extends into the tens of thousands of dollars,
not to mention the numerous surgical procedures needed for access to
the tumor site and the weeks spent recovering in-hospital.

We're thrilled to announce that some wonderful people
(who also happen to be fantastic musicians) have stepped forward
to donate their time and talent in an effort to help stem the flow
of the enormous cost of Karina's treatment. We invite you to join them
in giving back to Karina, who has shared so much of her artistic gift
with us and the Chicago DIY community at large. An incredible
audio-visual lineup has come into being, bringing musicians and
artists from all corners of Chicago together to make
sound and light in celebration.
For more information about Karina's photography,
please visit www.karinanatis.com

You recall Oshun brawls in the dark
Paradise Lost picked apart; BUT overhead

                situations and events of the narrative telling, recounting, as opposed to
                showing, enacting.
                In diegesis the narrator tells the story. The narrator presents to the

OLD WATER TOWER (C) 1984 by travis

Young girls grew up here.
The Negroes, like Leslie, grow harder
Hazard to Mount Moriah’s isogamy.

 Now with bulbous red calcic bones
 (Postmenopausal D)
 Anemone infest our parasitic sea.

KATE CINCINNATI © 25APR82 Words travis/Noise ONO

CONTEXT:
Written at Artist-In-Residence; 6165 N. Winthrop.  Kate, first tenant at 6165.  Deeply Catholic. 
Archbishop John Patrick Cardinal Cody (24DEC07 – 25APR82) lay dead.  Huge media sex scandal. 
Very racist, Kate was also convinced I was queer.  Attacked me with her umbrella, cane and
broken mirror; screaming, spitting in my face, as I entered AIR. 
[Cody was embroiled in a scandal involving power, money and Helen Dolan Wilson.  
Cody:  St. Louis native.  Bishop of Kansas City-Saint Joseph (1956–61),
Archbishop of New Orleans (1964-5).  Archbishop of Chicago (1965–82).
He was created a cardinal in 1967.  On 28APR82 I waited two+ very cold hours in the queue
at Holy Name Cathedral to view Cody’s remains w/pageantry. 
Soon afterward, Cody’s hat was elevated to the groin of Holy Name Cathedral.

KATE CINCINNATI © 25APR82 Words travis/Noise ONO
==I Am Fed.  (Were she Artemis!  Uptown stood still.)
A loam amid fed vague decorum
Or Helen’s echo far, far afield.
Wanton laughter.  Agglutinated liver.  Kate Cincinnati.

==I Am Shot And Dead. 
(O!  But today [Chicago’s Cardinal] Cody lay dead.)
Magnificat stole his loyal passionate trigger.
This old woman whipt me:  “You shameless Nigger!”
Jesuit blood on Maria’s unsullied bed.  Kate Cincinnati.

==I Am Shown To Saul.  (Sunday.  Early Morning.)
Maria, who cannot climb, is elevated.  [Assumpted.]
Right or wrong.  !Play Me A Sorrowful Song, Paraplegic!

   Paraplegic.  I’m in the mood for you.
   Why rest here, man you’re [Ju-Ju]
   My ghost outstripped, blueblood; backslider;
   Parallelogram diffused.  This I’ll give to you. 
   I come for food.

Let them expose me to the little sparrow;
Let them expose me to the sexton and to the cannibal.
Expose me to the paraplegic!  Faint!  Falling in Division!
Let the Black Friars bellow, remote amid the hubbub
Like a dream. 
Some men are ornaments.  All men begin as women.
Like a dream.  Arrivez de toujours.
Never again glean these steep rooms and rare rummage.
I come for food.       Kate?  Kate Cincinnati?

==I Beg To Crawl.
Fifty oriental gringos slept.
Taint her mummial harangue.
Blind whitecaps lay quivering.
Quivering loins upon Mundelein’s grave.
Ah, but were Maria clever Artemis. 
Were she Artemis!
Or a mongrel’s vowel:  Venison so unjustly modern.
!To Be Beat.  But Not To Die!  Kate Cincinnati!

==The Ideal Falls.  (Now Eat!)
Christ child took to [Cardinal] Cody instead.
Made RED his high hat.
Not John Paul (Publican),
Who, for you, Catherine, once wed.  Now eat!
But in Edgewater night = A second light might fall!
Flee then!  I Fled!  Leavened bread to Saul.
She beckoned withal ugly fits.  Philos!  Beheaded!
Beheaded!  Sloshing jowls.  Kate Cincinnati!
Running her red tongue in and out my mouth.

                "It smells so incredibly evil...

                It has a ghastly familiarity like a half-remembered dream.
                Anything could happen here... any moment....

            From Wikipedia:

            The Shanghai Gesture is a 1941 American United Artists film noir starring
            Gene Tierney and Walter Huston, with Victor Mature and Ona Munson.
            It was adapted for the screen by Josef von Sternberg, based on the play
            by John Colton, produced by Arnold Pressburger for United Artists, and
            directed by von Sternberg. This early film noir explores the lives and
            secret pasts of the main characters, played out in a luxurious casino
            owned by "Mother" Gin Sling.
            Keye Luke painted the mural that is displayed in the casino. . . .
            PLOT
            Doctor Omar (Victor Mature) bribes the Shanghai police to not jail broke
            American showgirl Dixie Pomeroy (Phyllis Brooks); he invites her to seek a
            job at the casino owned by Dragon-lady "Mother" Gin Sling (Ona Munson),
            his boss. In the casino, Omar attracts the attention of a beautiful, privileged
            young woman (Gene Tierney), fresh from a European finishing school.
            She is out for some excitement. When asked, she gives her name as
           "Poppy" Smith. Meanwhile, Gin Sling is informed that she must move her
            establishment to the much less desirable Chinese sector. She is given five or six
            weeks, until Chinese New Year, to comply. Gin Sling is confident that she can
            thwart this threat to her livelihood, and orders her minions to find out everything
            they can about the man behind it, Englishman Sir Guy Charteris (Walter Huston),
            a wealthy entrepreneur who has purchased a large area of Shanghai.
            Dixie proves to be an unexpected source of information; Charteris had taken her
            out to dinner a number of times, before dumping her to avoid her meeting his
            newly arrived daughter: Poppy, whose real name is Victoria Charteris. From Dixie's
            description, Gin Sling realizes Charteris is someone from her past. Meanwhile,
            Poppy falls in love with Omar and becomes addicted to gambling.
            Though the spoiled woman is openly contemptuous of the casino owner, Gin Sling
            allows her credit to cover her ever growing losses. Gin Sling invites Charteris and
            other important dignitaries to a Chinese New Year dinner party. Charteris at first
            declines, but then curiosity gets the better of him. At the dinner, she exposes his
            disgraceful past. Charteris, then calling himself Victor Dawson, had married her.
            One day, he abandoned her, taking her father's money and their daughter, leaving her
            destitute and alone. Forced to do whatever she had to in order to survive, she
            wandered from place to place, until she reached Shanghai. There, Percival Hower
            had faith in her and backed her financially, allowing her to work her way up to her
            current position. To cap off her revenge, she has Victoria brought in. Victoria openly
            flaunts her attraction to Omar, a dinner guest. Charteris drags his wayward daughter
            out, but she defies him and goes back inside. When he tries to retrieve her, he is
            confronted by Gin Sling. He then reveals that Victoria is Gin Sling's own daughter.
            Gin Sling tries to talk to Victoria, telling her she is her mother, but when the young
            woman continues insulting her, Gin Sling grabs a pistol and shoots her dead.
            She then remarks to Hower that this is something she cannot bribe her way out of.

      (Machine sounds …..Then LAP STEEL growl sustained)
      (Then drum beat of Dream factory, then bass line)

      Mary Shelley / FRANKENSTEIN
            “I, the miserable and the abandoned, am an abortion, to be spurned at,
            and kicked, and trampled on.
            My imagination, unbidden, possessed and guided me, gifting the successive images
            that arose in my mind with a vividness far beyond the usual bounds of reverie.
            I saw -- with shut eyes, but acute mental vision,
            I saw the pale student of unhallowed arts kneeling beside the thing he had put together.
            I saw the hideous phantasm of a man stretched out, and then, on the working of some
            powerful engine, show signs of life, and stir with an uneasy, half vital motion.
            Frightful must it be; for supremely frightful would be the effect of any human endeavour
            to mock the stupendous mechanism of the Creator of the world.
            His success would terrify the artist; he would rush away from his odious handywork,
            horror-stricken.
            He would hope that, left to itself, the slight spark of life which he had communicated
            would fade; that this thing, which had received such imperfect animation, would subside
            into dead matter; and he might sleep in the belief that the silence of the grave would
            quench for ever the transient existence of the hideous corpse which he had looked upon
            as the cradle of life.
            He sleeps; but he is awakened; he opens his eyes;
            behold the horrid thing stands at his bedside, opening his curtains, and looking on him
            with yellow, watery, but speculative eyes.”

                 Ursula stood aside watching the living man stare at the frozen face of the dead man.
                 Both faces were unmoved and unmoving. The candle-flames flickered in the frozen air,
                 in the intense silence. `Haven't you seen enough?' she said.    
                 He got up. `It's a bitter thing to me,' he said. `What -- that he's dead?' she said.
                 His eyes just met hers. He did not answer. `You've got me,' she said.
                 He smiled and kissed her. `If I die,' he said, `you'll know I haven't left you.'
                 `And me?' she cried. `And you won't have left me,' he said.
                 `We shan't have any need to despair, in death.' She took hold of his hand.
                 `But need you despair over Gerald?' she said. `Yes,' he answered.

                 `You can't have two kinds of love. Why should you!'
                 It seems as if I can't,' he said. `Yet I wanted it.'
                 `You can't have it, because it's false, impossible,' she said.
                 `I don't believe that,' he answered.

                    SONG TO THE SIREN by Tim Buckley/This Mortal Coil
                    On the floating, shapeless oceans I did all my best to smile
                    til your singing eyes and fingers drew me loving into your eyes.
                    And you sang "Sail to me, sail to me; Let me enfold you."
                    Here I am, here I am waiting to hold you.
                         Did I dream you dreamed about me?
                         Were you here when I was full sail?
                         Now my foolish boat is leaning, broken love lost on your rocks.
                    For you sang, "Touch me not, touch me not, come back tomorrow."
                    Oh my heart, oh my heart shies from the sorrow.
                    I'm as puzzled as a newborn child.
                    I'm as riddled as the tide.
                    Should I stand amid the breakers?
                    Or shall I lie with death my bride?
                    Hear me sing: "Swim to me, swim to me, let me enfold you."

                    "Here I am. Here I am, waiting to hold you."

      BURNING OF THE MIDNIGHT LAMP  By JimiHendrix
                 ==The morning is dead and the day is too
                There's nothing left here to lead me, but the velvet moon
                All my loneliness I have felt today
                It's a little more than enough to make a man throw himself away
                And I continue to burn the Midnight Lamp, alone
                ==Now the smiling portrait of you
                Is still hanging on my frowning wall
                It really doesn't, it really doesn't bother me too much at all
                It's just the ever falling dust that makes it so hard for me to see
                That forgotten earring laying on the floor
                Facing coldly towards the door
                And I continue to burn the Midnight Lamp, all alone
                                        LONELINESS IS SUCH A DRAG!
                 ==So here I sit to face that same old fireplace
                Getting ready for the same old explosion
                Going through my mind
                And soon enough the time will tell
                About the circus in the wishing well
                And someone who will buy and sell for me
                Someone who will toll my bell
                And I continue to burn the same old lamp, alone


                   GOIN DOWN SLOW (1941) By James Burke Oden
                I have had my fun, if I don't get well no mo
                My health is failing me, and I'm going down slow
                Please write my mother, tell her 'bout the shape I'm in
                Tell her to pray for me, forgive me for my sin

                   MUSIC V. NOISE   By Jesse Thomas
                What are all these sounds I'm hearing these days?
                We used to make so much distinction between
                [the music and the noise, &] (4x)
                We used to make some kind of distinction
                Between all the sounds we were hearing
                                Are you impossible or are you just like me
                                All these complaints the same they claim its too easy
                                Want you to discover me before we go to sleep
                                I'll mix a daiquiri wash down amphetamine
                                She's making tuna fish I'm not allowed to eat
                                The distance from her almost feels like a relief
                I share the darkness she expresses disbelief
                & everything's so funny in the belly of the beast
                [Ha Ha In the belly of the beast] (3x)
                                *These kids man, they're gonna be the death of me
                                Wanna keep me out late on a school night
                                Make me feel like I've messed myself up*
                                                That's Some Flavor (4x)
                                **Sick of breathing so he sucks a cigarette
                                the smoke reminds him of the steam from Christine's breath
                                16 not one day better but I heard that girl's the best
                                 Saved a space and now an empty place is all you've got left
                                You can read the signs if you know they're there
                                I touch my face she touches her hair
                                 Cover your mouth caught your stare
                                It's a pantomime if you can read the signs**
                We used to make some kind of distinction
                The noise on one side
                The music on the other side
                We used to make some distinction for everybody
                We don't need labels like this
                Noise & music
                WE never needed them
                Not for us or them, Never

                 The prosperity of Crime is like unto the lightning, whose traitorous brilliancies
                 embellish the atmosphere but for an instant, in order to hurl into death's very depths

                 and cries scandal immediately it is attacked.

                 Juliette had just attained her twentieth year when a certain === gentleman out of Anjou,
                 about forty years of age, became so captivated by her he resolved to bestow his name upon her;
                 he awarded her an income of twelve thousand pounds and assured her of the rest of his fortune
                 were he to be the first to die; he gave her, as well, a house, servants, lackeys, and the sort of
                 mundane consideration which, in the space of two or three years, succeeded in causing her
                 beginnings to be forgot. = = = = = = = = = = = =

                 and number of her villainies; she was called Dubois === on the eve of paying the capital penalty,
                 but as to the exact form of it the judges were yet mightily perplexed: having rendered herself
                 guilty of every imaginable crime, they found themselves virtually obliged to invent a new torture
                 for her, or to expose her to one whence we ordinarily exempt our sex.
                 This woman had become interested in me, criminally interested without doubt,
                 since the basis of her feelings, as I learned afterward, was her extreme desire
                 to make a proselyte of me. = = = = = = = = = = = =
                 NARRATOR moves back

                 TECHNITRONIC WIDOWMAKERS DRAG-ON
                 NARRATOR moves forward and Da way begins to play Spanish guitar:
                 NARRATOR: The third bade me mount upon and straddle two somewhat separated chairs and,
                 seating himself betwixt them, excited by Dubois, lying in his arms, he had me bend until his
                 mouth was directly below the temple of Nature; never will you imagine, Madame, what this
                 obscene mortal took it into his head to do; willy-nilly, I was obliged to satisfy his every need....
                 Just Heaven! what man, no matter how depraved, can taste an instant of pleasure in such things....
                 I did what he wished, inundated him, and my complete submission procured this foul man an
                 intoxication of which he was incapable without this infamy. The fourth attached strings to all
                 parts of me to which it was possible to tie them, he held the ends in his hands and sat down
                 seven or eight feet from my body; Dubois' touches and kisses excited him prodigiously;
                 I was standing erect: 'twas by sharp tugs now on this string, now on some other that
                 the savage irritated his pleasures; I swayed, I lost balance again and again, he flew into
                 an ecstasy each time tottered; finally, he pulled all the cords at once, I fell to the floor
                 in front of him: such was his design: and my fore-head, my breast, my cheeks received
                 the proofs of a delirium he owed to none but this mania.
                 That is what I suffered, Madame ===
                 The following day we fell hard by Louvres, sleeping under haystacks; I felt in need of Dubois'
                 support and wanted to pass the night by her side; but it seemed she had planned to employ it
                 otherwise than protecting my virtue from the attacks I dreaded; three of the thieves
                 surrounded her and before my very eyes the abominable creature gave herself to all three
                 simultaneously. The fourth approached me; it was the captain. "Lovely Therese," said he,
                 "I hope you shall not refuse me at least the pleasure of spending the night with you?"
                 and as he perceive my extreme unwillingness, "fear not," he went on;
                 "we'll have a chat together, and I will attempt nothing without your consent.
                 "O Therese," cried he, folding me in his arms, " 'tis all foolishness, don't you know,
                 to be so pretentious with us. Why are you concerned to guard your purity in our midst?
                 Even were we to agree to respect it, could it be compatible with the interests of the band….”

                 His heavy riffs will envelop your soul and make you cower in dread.
                 MishkaNYC says: "[Mr. 666’s record is] an awesome doomy Krautrock/Italiano
                 synth masterpiece, riffing along like John Carpenter on speed sailing the seas of an

                  =ONCE UPON A DREAM FACTORY
                  Once upon a dream ago      There is movement in my motion      Drowning in
                  perilous streams I have faced when my world seemed useless and slow
                  I knew something was different, as I felt myself cooing inside
                  Still I had This feeling I hadn't felt in years and so it began the greatest revolution
                  Forbidden harmony is so repetitive.
                  There is movement in my motion … A most Harmonious song shrieked
                  The days of the anti-hero have long since strayed And I haven’t forgotten
                  what it was like to overcome feeling alone      But you made sure that I wouldn’t
                  end up like that.      You hang your head low; you knew I had to go
                  Once upon a dream ago
                  =FACTORY
                  In the factory Waiting Thin walls of glass and cement The clock of conformity
                  The faded chipped floor, Listening to the fan blowing out hot stale air Walking back
                  through the old limping factory Listening to Allen Ginsberg with much antiquity
                  Wearing Italian glasses Hot stale air      The witnesses who never existed or the point-
                  Counterpoint texture lectures twisted around the Tongues and teeth of fear of
                  consequence that lies Waiting in the dark, ready to pounce      Pointed fingers,
                  yelled & screamed & reamed for tyrants No windows inside the factory
                  The outside world, Gossips and conversations who feel like prison
                  Bell rings and it rings again to the great battered machines and worn out tables and
                  desks that were bought second-hand.      I am continents apart I think drifting off to
                  that time in ’98 smoke-stacked an entire nation      I pointed out fact from friction,
                  although fiction was not far from their truths…..

Exhibition Title:          travis        @ NEW CAPITAL PROJECTS  
         
                                  Performing ALBINO     at the Closing of
                                  Kandis Williams's "New Catalogue" Exhibition.

                "Kandis Williams produces large-scale black and white collages that track a deeply
                 personal on-going exploration of racial-nationalism, authority, eroticism, magic and
                 violence. For her show as New Capital's first artist in residence, Williams takes the
                 recent Tanzanian folk conviction that the arms and legs of albinos can be used in
                 magic potions, and weaves copies of a documentary photograph of a severed
                 Tanzanian albino arm into intricate and hypnotic lattice structures.

                 Using collage as a deliberately hideous metaphor for violence, these repetitive and
                 idiosyncratic nets, formed from specific incidents of sociological chaos, are set against
                 monochromatic gradients, suggestive of deep space and the occurrence of these
                 incidents over time, compounding the horror and fascination with both physical and
                 ideological difference. Williams implicates both herself and the audience in the
                 intoxication of commodity - fetishism, dramatizing the mind's struggle for truth in
                 moral judgment.

                 Kandis Williams was raised in Baltimore. She received her BFA from Cooper Union
                 and is currently based in Berlin."

                                  "The Club and Music Scene:
                                           Making Nightlife, Creating Community"
                QUOTE
                This series of three gallery conversations propose that we look at Mark Bradford's work
                in relation to different social and cultural contexts. Led by a guest presenter and museum
                staff, at each, we ask: What the nature of this scene? What record of it do we see in
                Bradford's art? Why does it matter to his work and to culture now?

                With Joe Bryl, acclaimed DJ, music programmer and former Sonotheque owner;
                Travis, multidisciplinary artist and lead member of the boundary-crossing music
                and performance group ONO; and
                Aay Preston-Myint, interdisciplinary artist and active scene-maker through the
                collaborative groups Chances Dances and No Coast.

                   and he was coming to catch her
                   Lose the sense of time/Nail down the blinds/And in the succulent dark
                   there’s a sense of ending
                   Joking aside/The mechanical bride/Has fallen prey to the great pretender.
                                      Let me just point out discreetly Though you never learn
                                      All those tawdry late night weepies I could make you weep more cheaply
                                      As the empty moon enamels Monica with spoons and candles
                                      Bangs around without the light on Furniture to get it right on
                                      Settled in a homely fishpool Hung with little eels
                                      Often thinks that travel widens ’stay at home, the trout obliges’

                Black, therewithal without moonbeam gazed I
                Upon some blazing Countenance set free
                Entranced here held full high a cashmere sky
                Unstirred, invoked. Before her there a tree
                Sprang forth. Old Age bemoaned (in bloom)
                Her fruit: Truth: Sudden shadowplay in dream
                No more! Forlorn? I know not, only doom
                That veils compel Nirvana, graven, gleam
                Perchance this Dragon’s vanity, God’s Tongue
                Illumined like his father’s sad delight
                A martyred Verse, a ruthless, silv’ry night
                Indulged ‘til, limpid, Truth had fast too long
                                 As Vespers eve widows followed here on.
                                 So strong an omen yet; too weak to run.

                Are you my friend? I am an elephant
                they keep me in here but not for too long
                because these bars are nothing but toothpicks
                and this fence is much too small
                Are you my friend?
                I am not a part of this
                this is the last time I make this senseless walk
                these hollow hallways will soon belong to me
                I wasn’t meant for you and I will not forget
                I am an Elephant
                Are you my friend?
                this is appalling can’t keep pretending I'm getting smaller
                this performance will divide us
                suffered silent slings for far too long
                most of them taunt me
                underestimate today is my day
                and I am not your property

                She loved me so good   She made her daddy mad
                My woman cried            She's dead to me now
                My woman ran off         And I can't deny it
                My life - Jesus and tequila I'm satisfied And I can't deny it
                I had a job                    It paid me good
                I could have my phone [FUN?] And tip the preacher too
                My boss yelled               He's dead to me now
                My boss kicked me out  And I can't deny it
                My life - Jesus and tequila I'm satisfied And I can't deny it
                You better listen to me 'Cause I'm gonna tell you, son
                Don't give away your love And don't give away your sweat
                Because a girl can't know you And a boss can't afford you
                Remember Jesus and tequila I'm satisfied And I can't deny it
                Remember Jesus and tequila I'm satisfied And I can't deny it

                The swamp you loved so much retains me
                And with the hunt a rancid power play.
                Hunger. We never hunted for hunger.
                We aim our sights; out the lights
                And then our siblings overstay.
                The dogs are whining.
                Forever I will howl from the clay.
                Behind my veil I see your face
                Every Decoration Day.

BRITCHES © 2011 by travis      

     I DON’T WANT NO BOW RIBBONS ON MY BRITCHES.
     I stood out FRONT of the Temple proclaiming my victory over the Devil
Preachers Saints & Christians LAUGH at me.
In BACK of the Temple I met an angel of the devil; an agent inside a wheel.
I answered: I DON’T WANT NO BOW RIBBONS ON MY BRITCHES.
     My desires aside I deny my father’s hatred: [My father hates me;
my father has always hated me; in death my father shall forever hate me.]
Embarrass his shame/Embarrass his name. Much as I can I follow. I shadow. I leave me alone!
Plunging into the Light
      I DON’T WANT NO BOW RIBBONS ON MY BRITCHES.
      I Wave to his Shroud in Vain. He is Wasted in Ash. He is Whining. He is Wind.
      He is Torn from Shame.                                I Visit the Grave. I Fall on the Ground.
AMAZING GRACE (Verses 1&3)                          John Newton (1725-1807)
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound                Through many dangers, toils and snares
That saved a wretch like me.                               I have already come;
I once was lost but now I'm found                     'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far
Was blind, but now I see.                                   And Grace will lead me home.

                DANGER     A Film Directed by Michael J. Phillips, Jr.
                                  Featuring Technology & Effects by JayVe Montgomery

                ONO:          P.Michael Grego / Rebecca Pavlatos / Jesse Thomas /
                                  DaWei Wang / MiMi Wallman / travis

                Herewith, my modest proposal:
                 = = = = = = = ONO     //DANGER//     PREMISE: Desire LEADS TO Assumption.
                 No discernible light or light source. Darkness. Animal sounds. White space.
                 Two queen sized white sheets (or plastic, but preferably sheets for projections and
                 dismembering) slash the diegesis at odd angles. Mysterious stillness permeates a
                 space thick with undercurrents slowly rising from mournful gospel bass guitar and
                 droning, foreboding organ. Irregular flashes of light (w/images of Wild Dogs or other
                 animals in the wild?) and roll of thunder. Camera pans space, but in snatches/flashbacks.
                 Shadowy outlines of ONO members. MiMi (demure as if she is a child/bride OR Costumed!)
                 is positioned in a child’s chair, but beckons the viewer by “reaching out.”
                 (Here: Temperamental Lighting) MiMi sings: “Apple in the Tree…” [While I’m here /
                  I’m reaching out /About to touch / To love too much / A hand on branch / One red desire /
                 A fire carte blanche / A heart on fire]. ^^^ Before Mimi’s final phrase ends, ONO intro to
                “Berlin Cowboy” is well underway, INTERFERING (Funhouse/Change lighting) muddying the
                 accompaniment to “Apple in the Tree.” ONO voices overlay/overlap MiMi as ONO speak phrases
                 from “I Am An Elephant” Repeated/Injected (Homonculus). Build into “Berlin Cowboy”
                 at first utterly disjointed and broken/out of tune, then: [“Radio Hobo Wild Coyote /
                 16 stallions a wild coyote / Berlin cowboy got a blood reaction / You better sell these uniforms
                 join a freedom faction (Repeat) / (CHANGE) / And she waits for the doctor / Sally saves all
                 her favours for the doctor / She’s a radio hobo wild coyote / 16 stallions a wild coyote /
                 Sally left home gone a bought herself a pony / 16 stallions a wild coyote / Berlin cowboy
                 better take heed / She tans the cowhide & she takes the lead / Berlin town got a
                 blood reaction / you better sell these uniforms / join a freedom faction / (CHANGE) /
                 And she waits for the doctor / Sally saves all her favours for the doctor / She’s a radio hobo
                 wild coyote (Repeat)”] ^^^ After the second change, guitars DUEL and MiMi destroys all
                 remaining rhythmic patterns as she SCREECHES AND HOWLS//UNMUSICALLY (while pointing
                 surveillance lamps into the eye of the camera/viewer): [While I’m here / I’m reaching out /
                 About to touch / To love too much / A hand on branch / One red desire / A fire carte blanche /
                 A heart on fire]. VOICES: “I AM AN ELEPHANT! I AM AN ELEPHANT!” ^^^ P.Michael bass leads
                 Jesse guitar to control the DISorder by imposing one final INTERFERENCE (Funhouse):
                 DANGER! Big Intro To DANGER! MiMi is out front! Wild Dogs are Howling!/DaWei to the fore!
                 travis is in the rear of the White Box, changed into all-white, and climbs a ladder to deliver:
                 DANGER: [“I was up there with the stone in my eye / I turned to you and there was only the
                 Moon and the Sky / Come here Eagle Boy / Don’t tell me you love NoNoNo / You have the
                 schemes but I have the numbers / And the Demon in the middle of the firmament /
                 Come here Eagle Boy; Come Here! / You have the schemes but I have the numbers /
                 and the Demon in the middle of the firmament.”] Danger provides a reasonable opportunity
                 for our director’s audio/video thematic overlays/juxtapositions, a good degree of
                 Assumption and no small hint of Apocalypse! /travis

HAPPY THANKSGIVING  &  MOTHER'S FUNERAL

Dear +++: Happy Thanksgiving. I am very happy to hear from you. I think of you often.
Mother is dead.
Here’s the story of Saturday 20NOV10.
Friday 1700 Southwest flight Chgo MDW to Cleveland. Delayed two hours. Finally arrive CLE.
Shuttled to CLE auto rental. Collected Alamo rental car. My preferred auto was gone.
Upgraded to a gigantic black 2010 Chevy Impala w/Massachusetts license plates.
Drove 1.3 hours to Akron, OH. Checked into Red Roof Inn (w/room for four) at 0230.
Wake-up call 0830. Up at 0800. Drive to Templeton Ministries COGIC, 994 Swartz Rd.,
for Mother’s funeral.
That was fun.
Friends and family from MS, OH and MI. Lots of singing, dancing, food/repast, etc.
To my enduring surprise, my family did not throw themselves into the casket.
They did not faint and fall about. They did not require nurses. And there lay Mother’s corpse,
exquisite make-up beneath a bed of highly fragrant flowers (The Graceful Tribute Casket Spray,
Colonial Florist #TF201-1). Deep purple roses, and endless other flora, fell gracefully about the
New Point Saturn White/Pink 20 gauge metal casket. Perfect hair. Pearls perfect in her pierced ears.
Perfect airbrush blush. Full-length, off-white evening dress with matching pumps!
Actually, quite an ordinary affair. Then came the big fun. The three-block processional snaked the
full breadth of Akron into downtown and busy West Market Street, led by Sheriff escort’s flashing lights!
matching Cadillac hearse and limousines. I drove the last car in the procession, as it was very impressive
to see the crawl up and down Akron’s very steep, hilly terrain and summer-perfect roadways.
It was a perfect day; I could have left my black leathers at home in Chgo.
^^^ Inside the spectacular landscape of beautiful Glendale Cemetery, one slithers through a cavernous
maze of 50ft-100ft hillsides, cliffs, ravines, etc., covered with Gothic Chapel, Neo-Gothic and Renaissance
facades and endless Romanesque-covered-in-vines. It is on the National Register.
“The Guardian of Akron’s Heritage Since 1839.” Then, there it is! Mother ordered a curious crypt/vault,
huge and highly glazed in silver, sitting in Section 42 Lot 3, in the garden by the side of the road.
Pallbearers deliver the casket to a waiting pedestal. Tented Ceremony; again surprisingly uneventful.
No one threw themselves into the casket or into the grave! I have a great conversation with the pastor
about “all this hardware to rot in the ground.” Then, everyone leaves the sylvan landscape to the blaring
of my niece’s bass booming from the butt of her truck: Just a hint of New Orleans.
They return to repast and party at Templeton. I grow old in Glendale graveyard.
A small army of gravediggers descend upon the scene. We chat. The huge, silver 12 gauge Clark Steel Vault
is raised into the air by a heavy, black spidery trucklike device. It is placed over the casket and pedestal.
Four locks click the parts securely together, then the heavy burden is lifted into the air and moved away
from the grave. Wooden supports, turf, etc., are removed from grave site, and the giant silver vault
returns and is lowered into the ground: Fewer than four inches from the foot of the next vault;
like condominiums. Then, a bright, freshly-washed, poppy-red Tonka Toy Dump Truck arrives with soil.
It is beautiful, heavy, the same length as the grave. Perfectly positioned, it arches its back and dumps its load,
perfectly planting Mother’s mortal remains in the dirt.
I sniff the purple roses and drive 1.3 hours back to Alamo; return the auto; shuttle to CLE;
fly Southwest to MDW; arrive home at 1945; pack my bags and drive an hour to Mortville
haul my equipment up three flights of stairs; and I am onstage at 2100 performing with ONO
(P.Michael, Rebecca, MiMi, Jesse, Dawei and me).

               About this event: Part four of a four-part series celebrating Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender
               (LGBT) people and organizations who make a difference around Chicago.
               The final interview subject is James Darby, President of the local chapter of
               American Veterans for Equal Rights (AVER), an organization which works with
               veterans in many ways. As Mr. Darby explains, 'We drive them to their
               VA appointments, we help with expediting paper work, we discreetly offer financial support,
               all of our functions are 'ability to pay', we meet with as many politicians as we can to educate
               them, and the list goes on and on.' AVER also continues to closely monitor efforts to end the
               government's 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy affecting the estimated 65,000 U.S. LGBT
               military personnel. 'Ending the DADT is our raison d'etre,' Darby has said, 'and we won't be
               satisfied until we reach our goal.'

                                     Performance Group ONO creates an experimental multi-lingual
                                     Afro-Asian-Greek-Latin American Post-Modernist Overlay.

                                      http://www.southsidecommunityartcenter.com/

                                   NOTES:
                                   Half the soundtrack will be diegetic: Traditional, pre-recorded Carnaval sounds,
                heavily amplified w/Afro beats. I also plan to look, performatively, at deep, dark American or
                Latin Blues as an OVERLAY; CARNAVAL provides Escape as well as Transfiguration.
                ^^^At CARNAVAL, Masters and Slaves switch places. (Costumed rich women singing the
                Blues (in a DIFFERENT language)). I want a very NOISY installation of lights, sounds and
                psychological acting out!

                >>>>> CARNAVAL in Rio is when the people (living in the favela's) reclaim their city and
                they can become anything they want, another sex, the king/queen, have wealth, imagine
                a new self & recharge their sense of being for the next year.

Exhibition Title:          ONO PLAYS FOR DELIRIOUS INSOMNIAC        15SEP10 @  DARKROOM

                  http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=116176125093545

                  FROM ARVO ZYLO:   The Delirious Insomniac Freeform Radio Show has haunted the airwaves
of WLUW into the wee hours of dreary Monday Nights for nearly 3 years. Taking the concept of Freeform
and directing it more into the realms of an art form, host Arvo Fingers uses his lengthy experience as a
sleepless madman to wield surrealistic songs and sounds into a slithering swath for 4 hours a week.
He's clandestinely guested overnight many tim...es at WZRD-Chicago, cohosted a soul radio show with
Eric Lab Rat, booked numbers of otherworldly bands, and sustained long stints of freeform band/DJ nights
at daring bars or clubs, often covering two floors of activity. Presently, "Delirious Insomniac" is now
syndicated on RadioKL.Hr in Croatia, with regular international guest contributions from foreign music
enthusiasts. Arvo also writes music-oriented articles as well as making music alongside some of Chicago's
experimental luminaries. For this 3rd Anniversary event, challenging the freeform medium will extend into
the physical/visual realm. You might be alarmed, but you won't be disappointed.
