EMERGENCY (KSE #157) available now…very limited!

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 12:07 pm

EMERGENCY (KSE #157) is a limited, 25-copy edition that will be given as a New Year’s gift to friends and supporters of Kendra Steiner Editions. A small number will also be offered for sale. Each copy will be signed and gift copies will also be inscribed. This was written during a break from the composition of THE MOSQUITOES OF LA MARQUE, and it uses some of the same imagery, but in a very different style. It’s essentially an abstract portrait of a flood on the Gulf Coast…and to be completely honest, after it was finished, I realized that some of the images from the film BAD LIEUTENANT: PORT OF CALL NEW ORLEANS found their way into it too. If that’s not enough, KSE’s own A. J. Kaufmann appears as a character in it…the way I worked Brad Kohler and Luis Cuauhtemoc Berriozabal into the recent NOBODY KNOWS, NOBODY SEES. It’s volume 51 in the Sound Library Series, inspired by the composition “Delicieuse Catastrophe” by Robert Cohen-Solal, the soundtrack from the short 1970 animated film of the same name by Polish film-maker Piotr Kamler. I hope you all enjoy this small chapbook, and I offer it in thanks to all who have read our books and supported our cause during 2009….
