Here’s a virtual tour of the Book As Art, Vol. 13: Transformation exhibit that Half Premonitions of the Moon, the collaborative piece Sarah Bryant and I made. Our piece is highlighted at 7:34. Sarah has another piece in the gallery that is featured at 6:27 in the video.

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”
Here’s the penultimate video from the field recordings of mind in morning project with poet Hank Lazer. The banjo on this one is in standard Sawmill tuning (gDGCD) and played in clawhammer style.
My favorite line from the poem: “please show me what you are calling ‘now'”
