I had a great time working with poet John Barger on this music to accompany his poem and family footage. John already has another book out, but don’t miss his Resurrection Fail that contains this poem.

I’m particularly fond of “At the Barnes Museum on a Cold Fall Afternoon” as a testament to the twinning and twining of art/poetry/life that happens so often in museums.

Here’s the final video from the field recordings of mind in morning project with poet Hank Lazer. I’m pretty sure I randomly tuned the banjo just before this improvisation–there are some lovely, dissonant open string combinations that aren’t typical. Lots of chiming harmonics, too.

My favorite line from the poem: “I am nothing more than a location for change”
