BONUS TRACK: This song was part of the original, collaboratively written live score to Tempest: a radical deconstruction; a performance piece by the San Francisco ensemble Elbows Akimbo in the year 1988. I co-wrote this with Barbara Imhoff, who also performs. My role was Ariel-Exhale and I spent most of the show trapped on a ledge up by the celing while Ariel-Inhale (the dancer-choreographer Ellie Herman) got to dance around on the ground. I also spent considerable periods of time curled up inside a trunk that was also on the ledge. This was our way of representing the spirit of Ariel that was trapped in a tree and which made her Prospero's slave. At the end we merged and I was finally able to get down off that damn ledge! In the picture that's Alisa Froman as Sycorax (re-envisioned as the maligned Great Goddess) with Mark Steger crouched behind her as Caliban. Stage left is Ellie and that's me with my back to the camera. Up on the ledge you can see Jon di Stefano behind his percussion kit.

This is a partial musical record of that journey. ... more
