Bat City Cinema presents a K. Gordon Murray double-bill from original 16mm prints in Austin, Thursday 27 July!

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 8:23 pm

curse 1

Are YOU ready for a psychedelic trip to the 5th dimension? I am. That line is the most outrageous ballyhoo (from the master of the form, K. Gordon Murray) in support of a black and white movie which was many years-old when Murray was still hyping it on the rural drive-in circuit, but you know what….I’d imagine that most everyone who sits through this double-bill would agree wholeheartedly that the films TOTALLY deliver on that promise. And now we can see TWO of Murray’s classic American versions of first-rate Mexican horror from the Golden Age screened from FILM here in Central Texas!!!!!

Here’s the FB announcement for this horror-exploitation film must-see event:

Bat City is back with another double feature of ultra rare genre goodness on 16mm! Two ghastly offerings of 60’s Mexican horror not screened in Austin for at least 50 years… if ever! This is probably your only chance to witness the haunting beauty of THE WITCH’S MIRROR and the pint-sized terror of the CURSE OF THE DOLL PEOPLE in glorious black & white on the big screen. Tickets are only $10! Movies start at 7:30 pm. Feel free to bring your own beer and snacks!

curse 2

When will we in South and Central Texas get another chance to see two original K. Gordon Murray Mexican horror imports screened from FILM prints? Well, maybe in six months if this screening does well, so PLEASE find room in your schedule this coming Thursday night! I’m driving up to Austin from San Antonio (75 miles each way), and I’m sure it will be well worth it. Yes, I’ve had these on video for decades, but nothing compares with screenings from film (and if they are on 16mm, they are probably prints made for local TV stations, which means they will be EXACTLY the way most Americans saw these back in the day, except they won’t be on a snowy UHF station seen on a 14″ TV screen!).

BAT CITY CINEMA presents K. GORDON MURRAY’s

THE WITCH’S MIRROR and CURSE OF THE DOLL PEOPLE

THURSDAY 27 JULY

at AUSTIN STUDIOS, 1901 E. 51st St., Austin, TX 78723

show starts at 7:30 pm,  admission $10

BYOB (might I suggest a quart bottle of malt liquor…that’s what I’ll have)

coming this Fall: BRIDGE ON THE BAYOU, a new book-length collection of 2016 poems composed in Louisiana

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 1:31 pm

Happy to announce that we will be releasing another 8″ x 10″ book-length poetry collection, in the tradition of last year’s DOWN AND OUT IN GULFPORT AND BILOXI, which has been very well received by readers and which sold out its first printing in about four months (it’s still available and will continue to be available through Amazon in the US, Canada, and Europe).

This one, BRIDGE ON THE BAYOU, will contain the five six-page poems I composed in St. Landry, Louisiana, staying on the banks of Bayou Teche, during May of 2016, which initially appeared as five separate 41-copy-edition KSE chapbooks, all of which are out of print:

      Bridge On The Bayou

      Revelation In Slow Motion

      Reconditioning

      Satori In Opelousas

      Scrapple

As with DOWN AND OUT, this collection will be edited/formatted by Wyatt Doyle of New Texture, and he did an amazing job on the earlier volume. The larger format truly captures the way these open-field poems were conceived, as much as I may love the standard 5 1/2″ x 8″ KSE chapbook format. The energized clusters of text can breathe and the silence between the stanzas can be better felt on this larger canvas.

BRIDGE SAMPLE COVER

Stay tuned for further details.

Those of you here in South or Central Texas should mark your calendars for Saturday 5 August, as I will be doing a reading/performance here in San Antonio at Artpace as part of the RATS NEST EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC FESTIVAL. It will be both a solo reading of recent work (including pieces composed in Natchez, Mississippi in May of this year, some of which you can get a copy of NOW in their KSE chapbook editions–check the pinned post at the top of  this page) AND a performance of a poetry-and-percussion piece composed by Dane Rousay which is an adaptation of my 2010 poem BUTTERFLY MIND….with yours truly reading and the composer on percussion. My reading/performance is in the early evening, but the entire festival should be worthwhile, and admission is only $5….it runs from 3 pm through midnight. See you there!

two remaindered Warhol exhibition catalogues from Jablonka Galerie

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 1:57 am

Many books are published which include Andy Warhol’s name in the title: biographies with an agenda by people who did not know him; memoirs by people who were a part of his orbit; critical works which attempt to shoehorn him or his work into the service of some critical theory; meanderings on his role in the sixties or as a prophet of the internet age or whatever. Some are worthwhile; many are not. What matters most to me is Warhol’s art, and as the man was a workaholic, there is a lot of it—-in fact, more than any of us (except those who worked alongside him) could have anticipated. Warhol was also a man who took a motif and explored it over and over with variations, and presented all of those variations for study and contrast. Imagine if a contemporary dramatist who is also a film-maker……for example, Neil LaBute….took one scene from one of his plays, and presented seven different versions of the scene, some with different lines, some with significantly different direction, maybe one or two which replaced one actor with another….and then presented filmed versions of those multiple scenes which added up to 150 minutes and presented that as a feature film. And then he did that with the NEXT scene and released THAT as a feature film a month or two later. And then took the whole play and wound up eventually issuing FOURTEEN feature films in a year, each consisting of one scene from the play in multiple versions. It would change our way of looking at a play and a feature film. Of course, he’d lose a lot of his audience that way, but those he kept would no doubt get much deeper into his craft, and he would actively change the way the audience watched the play and the way the audience felt about drama. It would also slow down things–we’d be forced to stop and smell the roses (we’re not discussing Warhol’s own films here, but the 1965 HORSE contained elements of that approach)….and while we were stopped, to COMPARE and contrast the roses, and ponder the nature of roses, etc.

Andy Warhol’s multiple variations on a motif lend themselves to that kind of appreciation, and thus a Warhol exhibition (or exhibition catalogue) which provides a deep study of a particular series or a particular approach can be quite enlightening. Perhaps the ultimate example of that idea could be found at the Dia: Beacon in Beacon, New York, where Warhol’s SHADOWS series (90+ works) was presented  in one large room from 2003-2014 (I had the privilege of experiencing it in 2011 and spent five or six hours in the room). Here is a pic from that exhibition:

warhol shadows pic

The Jablonka Galerie in Koln, Germany, has done a number of these deep investigations of related and little-known works among Warhol’s archive, and the reason I am writing this piece today is to alert you that the beautiful exhibition catalogues from two of these exhibitions seem to have been remaindered in recent months and are now available at fire-sale prices (one was 19 and one was 15, before I used sale coupons!) at some of the Half Price Books stores here in Central Texas. Each is from a limited edition of 1500 copies worldwide, and each is full of beautiful and original and relatively unknown Warhol pieces. I’ve spent a lot of quality time with these books, and I notice that some copies still are on the shelves at HPB. You’d better grab them fast!

The first is PORTRAIT DRAWINGS, from a 2001 exhibition. It includes 78 richly  reproduced hand-drawn sketches of people–some no doubt intended for use in portraits, but many which don’t seem to have been. Warhol always had a distinctive and expressive hand, going back to the late 1940’s, so these works are a pleasure. After the 78 drawings, we get four finished portraits, none of which I’d seen before, two of Jacques Bellini and two of Herman Hesse (the Hesse portraits will remind many of Warhol’s series TEN PORTRAITS OF JEWS OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY, a favorite series of mine). The opening essay by Warhol’s longtime associate Vincent Fremont provides context for the works and an appreciation of Warhol as draughtsman.

Here is a picture from that exhibition:

warhol jablonka 3

The second book, HEADSHOTS, comes from a 2000 exhibition of 38 Warhol color portraits from 1972-1986. The ones from the 80’s, in particular, are fascinating as we see his technique evolve from the better known 70’s portraits. The exhibition (and thus book) also included an additional 21 hand-drawn faces from 1955-1960, most of which will be unfamiliar. To compare the late 50’s hand-drawn headshots with the later polaroid and silkscreen and painted portraits  from the 70’s/80’s really gives an insight into Warhol’s evolution…and reminds us also how much was consistent. The book opens with a witty and insightful essay from Bob Colacello on Warhol’s portrait business and what the portrait genre meant to him, on any number of levels.

What Mr. Warhol ate for breakfast, what TV shows he enjoyed, and who he slept with can be discussed by others who find that interesting. For me, the work is what matters and what will remain. Those who care about that work should check out these two books–I can’t imagine that exhibition catalogues published in a limited edition for fifteen-year-old exhibitions will be around long….I’m assuming the publisher’s remaining stock was sold off into the netherworld of remaindered books (which is why I see three sealed copies of each at various HPB stores in Central Texas). Buy it now, or pay someone big bucks later for it. Pour yourself a craft beer, put a late-period Chet Baker album on, settle back into a comfortable chair, and spend a few hours with one of these books. Warhol left an amazingly large legacy of individual works, and they are here for us to savor….and then, eyes opened, for us to re-emerge into the world. Thank you, Andy Warhol.

3rd in the series of Natchez poems, MELTDOWN from Bill Shute (KSE #378)

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 2:43 am

the third release from the recent poems written in Natchez, Mississippi

BILL SHUTE, “MELTDOWN” (KSE #378, poetry chapbook)

meltdown cover

edition of 41 hand-cut, hand-assembled copies

$6 US postpaid / $7 elsewhere postpaid

payment via paypal  to     django5722(at)yahoo(dot)com

please leave note with your order letting me know which items you are ordering and your mailing address…..thanks!

I composed SEVEN six-page poems during my two weeks in Natchez, Mississippi, in May 2017, and here is the third one to be edited and formatted: MELTDOWN. The other four will come out gradually throughout the year, and I also hope to record all seven later this summer for 2018 release. As usual, it’s open-field poems filtered through the consciousness of a narrative persona who is up to his waist in the muck, but looking toward the horizon (I’d say stars, but these were written during the daytime)—-JUNK SCULPTURE FROM THE NEW GILDED AGE.

It might be a good year for the roses, but the tracks deepen with each nightfall….and the path ends just this side of the parsley patch…..dry bones, dry fountains, dry sockets, dry eyes, dry wells….the blades were kept sharp, but the gears not oiled….the managers claimed their decisions were data-informed….just not by informed data! And let me introduce you to Miranda, who works in wealth management and collects shabby chic—-she offered me a pizza and cake supper, but I’ll pass if I have to listen to her brother’s conspiracy theories to get it. A greenish tint to the jalapeno pilsner….explosions in the shingle factory, viewed from someone else’s porch swing….the tourists didn’t notice, the locals no longer cared….

These seven pieces written in Natchez will eventually be collected in a full-sized professionally printed book, but as always, the home-made KSE chapbook publication is the only publication in the original formatting, with the original art, with the original epigraph (this time from Woodrow Wilson), and in the intended form of its creation. There are only 41 copies….grab one now, while you can.

Each of these chapbooks is a stand-alone piece (the “serial poem” concept of Jack Spicer seems to fit my work well), so don’t worry about what order they are in. I consider each narrator to be a unique person telling his/her unique story from his/her unique perspective. I as poet am just the actor playing the part, the gallery-operator assembling the exhibition.

I hope you find it interesting and worthwhile. Thanks for your reading all these years!

Also available, for the same price:

($6 US ppd/$7 elsewhere ppd)

KSE #376 (poetry chapbook), BILL SHUTE, “New Jerusalem,” 2nd of the Natchez poems

KSE #374 (poetry chapbook), BILL SHUTE, “Guest Register,” 1st of the Natchez poems

KSE #366 (poetry chapbook), BILL SHUTE, “Approaching The Apparent: Meditations on the Kena Upanishad”

KSE #368 (poetry chapbook), BILL SHUTE, “Find A Place To Die”

KSE #367 (poetry chapbook), BILL SHUTE, “Left-Handed Cherubs”

ATTENTION, CENTRAL TEXAS READERS: I will be doing a solo reading, including some of the Natchez poems, and also a poetry-and-percussion piece by composer Dane Rousay—-an adaptation of my 2010 poem “Butterfly Mind”–at the Rats Nest Experimental Music festival, sponsored by KRTU-FM, and held at Artpace, on August 5th. The festival runs all day, and my set should be in the early evening….more specifics in a week or two, but save the date if you are able to make it to S.A. With KSE artists such as Dane Rousay and More Eaze also on the bill, it should be an exciting day. See you there!

now available…MASSIMO MAGEE & JAMES L. MALONE, “the limits of the possible” (KSE #375)

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 11:30 am

MASSIMO MAGEE & JAMES L. MALONE, “The Limits of the Possible”

(KSE #375, CDR album)

$8 postpaid in the USA  (see below for foreign pricing and ordering instructions)

MASSIMO DUO 2017 COVER

Happy to welcome back saxophonist/composer/theorist-of-improvisation strategies MASSIMO MAGEE for his 6th album for KSE (he also appeared on both the 10th and the 11th KSE Anniversary compilations!), “THE LIMITS OF THE POSSIBLE,” where he is working in a duo with his fellow member of the Eddie Prevost workshop, guitarist JAMES L. MALONE. Magee’s KSE albums always generate a number of text messages and e-mails from listeners, starting with Brad Kohler’s text message a few days after he rec’d his copy of Magee’s 2011 Direct To Tape: “sign this man to a long-term contract, immediately!”

Magee approaches improvisation with the intellectual rigor of a scientist or a philosophy major, setting up situations and parameters and variables and then jumping into the deep end of the pool and losing all inhibitions, all the while totally aware of the specifics of the experiment. (Those wanting to explore improvisation further with Magee can check out his 26-cd set, available free as a download and with a fascinating 87-page book accompanying it, called COLLECTED SOLOS, a series of experiments with different approaches to improvisation as a discipline and as an artistic foundation on which one can build in unlimited directions…..it’s available at http://arraymusic.wordpress.com/ar15-collected-solos ).

Let’s let Magee himself discuss his newest album:

The Limits of the Possible

James L Malone – Electric Guitar

Massimo Magee – Alto and Sopranino Saxophones (electro-acoustic and otherwise)

Trial 1 – 29:48       Trial 3 – 20:53

“The music arises from a point of view that improvisation works best, from a political perspective, as an exemplar. As a necessarily niche activity with folk tendencies, it’s never going to be the site of any concrete revolutionary action but it can be (is, when done right) a symbol or small-scale demonstration of a non-hierarchical, egalitarian situation which accommodates the tensions between individual flourishing and group interdependence. But within that concept of individual flourishing lies its non-political importance: the ability of the individual player to continually interrogate their material to find new possibilities within it, continually testing, by means of repeated struggle, the hypothesis of its inexhaustibility and, in allowing the practitioner a glimpse of that inexhaustibility, opening up the potential for a transcendental experience.” Massimo Magee, London 2017

These two extended pieces of living-and-breathing sound sculpture are wonderful displays of duo-improvisation at its most symbiotic. Some sounds are clearly from Malone’s guitar, while others are clearly from Magee’s treated/extended saxophone, but 80% of the time we have this swirling dance of elements where the sound-source is not immediately evident to the average listener. Malone and Magee exist in a shared space and they create an incredibly wide variety of sounds. Each “trial” is like a core sample (or, if you will, a biopsy slice/sample) from a living, breathing sound-entity—-frankly, the only thing wrong with the album is that it’s not a 5-cd set with a dozen “trials,” but these tantalizing samples will, we hope, get you seeking out other works from Massimo Magee and James L. Malone. I’ve played the album about 20 times myself, as if I am walking around and studying a ten-foot tall, ten-foot wide contemporary sculpture, taking it in from different angles, watching the natural light play on the surfaces differently as time passes, changing my relationship with the sculpture….and having my relationship with the sculpture changed for me by an infinite variety of variables….within the limits of the possible.

Be sure to grab this exciting and satisfying CDR album ASAP….

2nd in the series of Natchez poems, NEW JERUSALEM from Bill Shute (KSE #376)

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 6:24 pm

the second release from the recent poems written in Natchez, Mississippi

BILL SHUTE, “NEW JERUSALEM” (KSE #376, poetry chapbook)

new jerusalem

edition of 41 hand-cut, hand-assembled copies

$6 US postpaid / $7 elsewhere postpaid

payment via paypal  to     django5722(at)yahoo(dot)com

please leave note with your order letting me know which items you are ordering and your mailing address…..thanks!

I composed SEVEN six-page poems during my two weeks in Natchez, Mississippi, in May 2017, and here is the second one to be edited and formatted: NEW JERUSALEM. The other five will come out gradually throughout the year, and I also hope to record all seven later this summer for 2018 release. As usual, it’s open-field poems filtered through the consciousness of a narrative persona who is up to his waist in the muck, but looking toward the horizon (I’d say stars, but these were written during the daytime)—-JUNK SCULPTURE FROM THE NEW GILDED AGE.

In the entry on the previous Natchez offering, GUEST REGISTER (still available!), I mentioned re-reading the lectures of Jack Spicer and a book of essays on the work of Frank O’Hara while writing these pieces, but for NEW JERUSALEM, I was also studying the recent New Century Edition of Swedenborg’s NEW JERUSALEM, translated by George Dole. As regular readers know, I’ve done a number of poems inspired by various spiritual texts: The Tibetan Book of the Dead, The Book of Revelation, the prophetic books of the Old Testament, The Kena Upanishad, the Mandukya Upanishad, etc. They provide transcendent metaphors and mythologies and cosmologies, and they provide me melodies and/or chord changes on which I can improvise the way pianist Mal Waldron or saxophonist Lee Konitz might treat a standard. With NEW JERUSALEM, however, any Swedenborg influence is surely under the surface of the iceberg….but what you consume has a large influence on what you produce, so I’ll let the reader be the judge of how this piece differs from the other Natchez poems or other recent pieces of mine (maybe it’s more like Lennie Tristano’s treatment of a standard, where the theme is never stated or even implied?).

Face and mask, on the summit of the slump….waiting for decades to drop anchor….the man and the gun are one….paying twice for the same item: once as it enters, once as it departs….the security forces confiscated my camera and notebook….more joy, less certitude….the mirrors informed me I’d been wearing my shirt inside out….the days are longer, the hills smaller….stepping outside, falling off….

These seven pieces written in Natchez will eventually be collected in a full-sized professionally printed book, but as always, the home-made KSE chapbook publication is the only publication in the original formatting, with the original art, with the original epigraph (from Frank O’Hara), and in the intended form of its creation.

“Anatomize” (KSE # 373), new compositions for percussion from San Antonio’s DANE ROUSAY

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 2:02 pm

DANE COVER

DANE ROUSAY, “ANATOMIZE” (KSE #373) CDR album

compositions for percussion, guest vocals on two tracks from Svetlana Zwetkof

$8 postpaid in the USA  (see below for foreign pricing and ordering instructions)

Excited to welcome San Antonio composer and percussionist DANE ROUSAY into the KSE family. He’s been very active on the experimental music scene in Central Texas (and throughout the midwest and mid-south) as a performer, composer, organizer, broadcaster, and collaborator….and we commissioned him to create a new album of compositions for percussion, one of TWO albums of new compositions for percussion KSE is releasing this summer (the other one, by John Bell—-well-known as a duo partner with Alfred 23 Harth—-will be out later in July). Percussion is perhaps the earliest form of music (not including voice), and I grew up listening over and over to the John Cage prepared piano pieces and compositions for percussion, and the piano trios of Paul Bley, where the inventive and subtle percussion of Barry Altschul was an equal partner, and I would focus on Altschul’s playing. KSE has been featuring new dimensions in amplified percussion on our many albums by Austin’s LISA CAMERON for a number of years now (and she’ll be back in the Fall with another), and early in our run we featured an album of percussion composition by Sarah Hennies (who also contributed a piece to the KSE 10th Anniversary compilation album), so Dane is following in a proud tradition….and his album is completely different from any of the above! Here are the composer’s comments on “Anatomize”:

“anatomize” is an album made up of improvisational and premeditated percussion works (tracks 4, 5, and 6 also feature the human voice and electronics). As the title suggests, the album revolves around a central theme of deconstruction throughout. 

The improvisational pieces are sonic explorations of the very literal parts (from drum shell to screws and washers) of the traditional drum set. The premeditated works on “anatomize” are intended to magnify minimalist percussion in a way that fixates on rhythmic repetition to an extreme. 

The anatomical theme throughout comes from the desire to explore specific sonic ideas without the use of any traditional sense of form. Rather than something being the sum of its parts, I felt it would be interesting to first explore each idea individually –removed from the context of the whole. 

ANATOMIZE is a fascinating and curiously beautiful album, understated yet edgy, close-miked, like a series of Twombly paintings come to life in a four-dimensional dream—-the two tracks with wordless vocals from Svetlana Zwetkof add a playful and sensual contrast to the percussion work, and the track “Aloof” with its multiple I-Phone counterpoint will have you wondering what’s on the album and what’s outside the album in the nearby environment….that questioning is always a good thing IMHO. As someone who goes to sleep each night with the sounds of two or three different un-related wind chimes drifting in and out of my consciousness, I highly recommend ANATOMIZE! It’s roots music from another dimension….

ANATOMIZE is available NOW….and tonight, at Limelight here in San Antonio, Dane will be performing solo, in an ensemble, and with The Freebiez at an album release party starting at 9 p.m. He just concluded a few months of extensive touring, hitting many experimental-music venues between here and Chicago, and he’ll hit the road again in August. You can check out his activities at www.danerousay.com

links to 30 (!!!) Bill Shute reviews at BTC, from July 2016-May 2017

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 9:05 pm

Between July 2016 and May 2017, I published 30 reviews at Blog To Comm….for a while, they were coming out weekly on Tuesdays! I hope to do some more in the future, but until then, here are the links to those pieces. Some of these have “faux memoir” elements, most do not—-however, I’m told they are an informative and entertaining read, covering cultural artifacts few others would comment on. Maybe you’ll have insomnia some night and this will be just what you need….enjoy!

new poetry for 2017, GUEST REGISTER from Bill Shute (KSE #374)

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 7:46 pm

now available: the first release from the recent poems written in Natchez, Mississippi

BILL SHUTE, “GUEST REGISTER” (KSE #374, poetry chapbook)

cover photo taken on Mickey Gilley Avenue in Ferriday, Louisiana

GUEST REGISTER scan.jpg

 

edition of 41 hand-cut, hand-assembled copies

$6 US postpaid / $7 elsewhere postpaid

payment via paypal  to     django5722(at)yahoo(dot)com

please leave note with your order letting me know which items you are ordering and your mailing address…..thanks!

I composed SEVEN six-page poems during my two weeks in Natchez, Mississippi, last month, and here is the first one to be edited and formatted: GUEST REGISTER. The other six will come out gradually throughout the year, and I also hope to record all seven later this summer for 2018 release.

During my Mississippi sojourn, I was reading (once again) the lectures of Jack Spicer and also a book of essays on the poetry of Frank O’Hara—-many of the seven pieces have epigraphs from O’Hara (this one does)—-but as usual, it’s 100% me, open-field poems filtered through the consciousness of a narrative persona who is up to his waist in the muck, but looking toward the horizon (I’d say stars, but these were written during the daytime)—-JUNK SCULPTURE FROM THE NEW GILDED AGE. Natchez is a culturally rich and geographically vibrant area, and that comes out in these poems, in addition to the usual themes, which seem to be getting more strident as things continue to deteriorate here in the land of plenty.

They collected their gold though data-mining, pulling the minerals, the preferences, and the particulars from our blood, returning us an echo of the original, and selling our specifics to the highest bidder….Deputy Dawg had his forces in position by sun-up, sipping hazelnut coffee and checking their phone messages, taken for granted and passed over like a meat market to a vegan….rainwater drops, shaken loose from the canopy of foliage above the dog-trot….connected with and mapping a euthanized past, afraid to stare down the gunbarrel of today….we’d been warned to not listen to what the trees said, before they even had a chance to say it!

These seven pieces written in Natchez will eventually be collected in a full-sized professionally printed book, but as always, the home-made KSE chapbook publication is the only publication in the original formatting, with the original art, with the original epigraph (from Frank O’Hara), and in the intended form of its creation. There are only 41 copies….grab one now, while you can.

Each of these chapbooks is a stand-alone piece (the “serial poem” concept of Jack Spicer seems to fit my work well), so don’t worry about what order they are in. I consider each narrator to be a unique person telling his/her unique story from his/her unique perspective. I as poet am just the actor playing the part, the gallery-operator assembling the exhibition.

I hope you find it interesting and worthwhile. Thanks for your reading all these years!

Back From Mississippi…and into Summer 2017

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 10:49 am

Just returned from a 12-day writing vacation in beautiful Natchez, Mississippi, which was both very productive and very enjoyable. I’d hoped to get five of my six-page poetry chapbooks completed, but I wound up doing SEVEN. These will come out in small home-made KSE editions over the next year (and as always, the small KSE editions are the original and intended version, with original art, original epigraphs, original formatting, etc.)….and later will be collected in book form. I also would like to record the seven pieces this summer for a spoken-word poetry album. They are titled MELTDOWN; SATORI IN NATCHEZ; THE DIFFICULTIES, THE IMPOSSIBILITIES; GUEST REGISTER; NEW JERUSALEM; TIME CRYSTALS; and ARISING, ABIDING, AND DECAY. As always, I hope you all find them interesting and worthwhile.

I’ve been writing and publishing a lot since last fall, though most of it (except for the chapbook FIND A PLACE TO DIE, composed in El Paso in December) has been prose. I had EIGHT pieces in the last UGLY THINGS; for many months I had an almost-weekly piece at BTC; and I did a number of film and music pieces here on the KSE blog. Thus, a lot of poetry was, to paraphrase John Lee Hooker, in there and it had to come out. Now it has…

natchez 3

KSE is open for business once again….and we will be open until JUNE 14….then we’ll be closed while in El Paso and New Mexico between JUNE 15 and JUNE 27…and then we’ll be back in business again straight through the rest of the year, if the good Lord is willing and the creek don’t rise. In July and August we have a number of exciting new albums in store, including

DANE ROUSAY

JOHN BELL

MASSIMO MAGEE & JAMES L. MALONE

SAMUEL DUNSCOMBE & TIM OLIVE

Stay tuned for those. San Antonio’s own DANE ROUSAY will be the first album release in that group, and Dane will also be back on tour this summer. We’ll share those tour dates later. Dane’s album should be out by July 1st. I have always loved compositions for percussion and solo percussion albums, so having percussion composition albums from both Dane and JOHN BELL in our summer schedule is exciting, and I hope you will be as excited as I am by those albums.

Most of my recent poems were written at the table to the right of the door. We got some heavy rains while I was there (see the flooded street next to the river in the second photo above), so for two days I wrote on the fully-covered back porch, which you can see on the far left of the picture. Working outdoors in such a lush and rich environment—-listening to an oil well pumping away on one side of me, and on the other side right next to a large cemetery from the 1800’s—-is just what this poet needed. And what a relief from the grind of daily work the trip was…
