Adishatz, Hello!
Our spring was busy & rich with a great tour of the UK. You can find videos & pix on my facebook page, Pierre Joris’ blog & more links below. We are now almost ready to embark on a long summer transhumance filled with many exciting stages — see short & longer term dates below.
Meanwhile, let me fill you in on our publications. Bi-Valve : Vulvic Space / Vulvic Knowledge — which includes a cd, texts & 17 colors plates of my paintings & digital photographs — is OUT! The recording features Michael Bisio on bass & we had a jolly good time recording it at FastSpeaking music w/ Ambrose Bye. I couldn’t be more pleased with the result & koudos to Lori Anderson-Moseman (Stockport Flats), who not only made it beautiful but was ever so supportive thru out the process. Get your copy while they last: here.
Also just out is Pierre’s Meditations on the Stations of Mansur al-Hallaj —for which I designed the cover— from Chax press; you can get it here, & in case you had missed the announcement: Poems for the Millennium, vol. 4: The University of California Book of North African Literature is also out and available here.
