Lounge Act: Wayne Koestenbaum
Lounge Act is a live performance recorded on Friday October 16, 2015, at REDCAT gallery as part of the exhibition "Hotel Theory." Poet, critic, and artist Wayne Koestenbaum performs piano miniatures (Scriabin, Chopin, Fauré, Milhaud, and Poulenc) while incanting spontaneous Sprechstimme-style soliloquies. Koestenbaum improvises words that stream in correspondence with the score’s musical phrases.
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Michael Webster, and produced by Sohrab Mohebbi in collaboration with UDPR.
Lounge Act is available in a limited edition of 300 vinyl copies.
