Crash is available
Hello all! We’ve been working on our various non-Vspeed projects of late. Gelsey & Paul were in Boston for a few months (and Paul is now on tour out west). Aliza was knee deep in ceramics. Brian was knee deep in PPL. Dave was knee deep in Gold Bolus. So life goes.
But there are things afoot! Stay tuned for future info on a very exciting potential project north of the border, as well as a promising possible reprise of a familiar project in the Keystone State.
But really what we’re here to tell you is that Crash, Robert Ashley’s final opera, has been released by Lovely Music, and you can obtain your own copy here. Crash features the five of us along with Amirtha Kidambi performing, and was recorded, mixed, mastered, and music-directed by Tom Hamilton. The CD come with some beautiful photographs by Phil Makanna, and Mimi Johnson of Lovely Music has also put together a gorgeous book with Phil with more photographs and more text. The CD also has some really illuminating correspondences between Bob & Melody Sumner Carnahan. So check it out!
