Recurring Dreams/Light/Sound Installation Opening Wednesday/and Friday at NOD A/V Performance: Core of the Coalman and the Kisses in the Deep Electric Blue
“I had that dream again where my hands are guns and I can’t drink my coffee.” Pete Hoffman Days, David Harrison Horton
I also have been experiencing a certain recurring dream. I am cooking a hamburger on a small, round, barbecue grill in the backyard of the house I grew up in in San Antonio, Texas. The photo above is a picture of the front “yard. You can see how burned the grass looks. Its hot there, and in my dream it is also hot, but nevertheless there I am, cooking a hamburger.
You can imagine my surprise when out of the bushes run two crazed wild boars, javelinas. Holy shit, look out Jorge!
They run up to me at my grill, and then stop, and begin to circle around. One of them looks up at me, and suddenly I recognize her from the grey/white patch of scruff on the top of her head. Its my old friend. She smiles and starts talking to me.
“Hey, we wanted to ask you if you wanted to play this show we are organizing.”
“Yeah, its going to be sort of a rave. It should be cool, and we wanted you to play for the whole show.”
“Uh, huh…well, you know, I’m not really making dance music. I like to do long pieces sometimes, but..”
“No, we really think it will work…”
“I am not sure, four hours is a really long time.” (I have no idea where the “four hours” comes from)
“Well, maybe I can ask Dan to play too he is a friend of ours.” Suddenly, I realize they are talking about Dan Deacon (why is he in my dream??)
“Well, uh, ok, maybe I can handle the more ambient parts.”
“Yeah that sounds great”
And thats it.
Well, unfortunately no wild pig rave with Dan Deacon and Core of the Coalman this week, but there are two other enticing events that I want to tell you about. The first is this Wednesday in INI Gallery in the Orco building (by Divus) here in Prague:
This installation is the third part of Jana Babincova‘s triptych “I Am Talking To You”.
Srdečně zveme na poslední část výstavně-situační trilogie

I am extremely happy to announce that the Art’s Birthday event will also feature the birthday of my new project with Jakub Grosz and Pascal Silondi:
Core of the Coalman and the Kisses in the Deep Electric Blue
In this project we combine the evolving textural layers of Core of the Coalman‘s scratch-strung and synthisizer time-bending soup with the immersive, space- transforming visual contours of the artists central to the group Libat. Please join us for our show, we will play first, beginning promptly soon after 19:00, so come early!! Its at prostor NOD (Dlouha 33, Prague), and entrance is FREE.
I want to extend a big thank you to Cesky Rozhlas (Czech Radio) for making this event possible. This is our third collaborative project, and I am really enjoying working together!
Here are some details, in Czech and English:
