Revisionist History

First page/cover inlay for Revisionist History

the most difficult part of wandering is not having a constant studio to make art and/or music with. as I approach a return to the States, I’ll be able to focus the various energies and ideas I’ve manifested over the past months toward finally getting some new work out there. Looking forward to it:

—first while still in Denmark, giving a presentation on art&community in America. I’ll be previewing a bit of the manifesto for Anticapitalist Expressionism, as well as playing a bit of piano. Upon return to America, I’ll be showing the work I finished in Ireland at October’s First Friday in Portland.

November will see an asterisk tour with my buddy Drew, likely from Seattle to Los Angeles and back, and in December I’ll have a solo show featuring the last of the Valence series and the release of Revisionist History, a book of poems and photographs made throughout this season in Europe. Chances are there will be some new music as well, but I’m still working on those details.

I’m hoping by the end of the year to release Arson, a publication I’ve been talking to Noele about collaborating on, which will see the finished version of the previously mentioned Anticapitalist Expressionism manifesto and a variety of sociopolitical and cultural essays I’ve been scribbling while on the road.

—i’ll be reading some poems from my summer project of poetry&photographs, Revisionist History, which may be streaming on instagram, 8-11pm irish time.

either way I should have the book ready for release in november

—i am working across continents with my friend Dan, who did guitar work on the last asterisk full-length, on an EP of acoustic tracks, hopefully to be out in the next month or so; most of these songs have been released in some form or another over the past year but this will put them all in one sound

, and there’s no art-supply store in this little fishing village so I use what I can: drop-cloths and house paint from the Hardware and Home Electronics shop, cheap brushes, any floor I can find,
