Cut up and collage inspired spoken word and improvisational poetry.

Joan Hawkins
A reading of Samuel Beckett’s stage poetry piece Not I.  As with so much of Beckett’s writing, content correlates completely with form in Not I; in fact, form to a large extent is content.

Alex Cunningham – violin (St. Louis)
Kyle Quass – trumpet
Damon Smith – bass (St. Louis)
Joe Stone – drums

Damon Smith studied double bass with Lisle Ellis and has had lessons with Bertram Turezky, Joëlle Leandré, John Lindberg, Mark Dresser and others. Damon’s explorations into the sonic palette of the double bass have resulted in a personal, flexible improvisational language based in the American jazz avant-garde movement and European non-idiomatic free improvisation. Visual art, film and dance heavily influence his music, as evidenced by his CAMH performance of Ben Patterson’s Variations for Double Bass, collaborations with director Werner Herzog on soundtracks for Grizzly Man and Encounters at the End of the World, and an early performance with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company.

Alex Cunningham is a violinist, improviser, and visual artist based in St. Louis, MO. His work explores free improvisation, drone, noise, and minimalist composition.
