Supertrooper 5: girls girls girls is getting collaged and scrambled as I write this very sentence. It’s fun messy kind of issue that has lots of narratives about dangerous behavior, troubled young women, and (failed) anger management. Expect a lot of action!
Also, there are a few scrappy mixtapes that I’ll have available of Bay Area noise and improvisational music. I’m working on some graphic scores as well, and will have a small run of those hopefully.
It was a bit of a turning point. I think before that time I had been less definitive about making a complete product, and would often record and write in a more fragmentary private way. Also I’d never thought to combine writing and music in one creative piece, especially one where the composition and music came from improvisation, and the writing came after.
2. My personal politics are pretty far left, so I think that critical theory, especially regarding sexuality and racial identity stuff, kind of sneaks in.
3. Austrian and German expressionism, basically the drawing coming out of Weimar in the early 20th century, really influence my graphic choices. I think return to George Grosz and his contemporaries when I’m browsing around in the art library.
