“On March 26, 2002 I read the entire text of The Origin of the World at the Parkside Lounge (on East Houston Street in NYC), accompanied by Sam Hillmer and Christopher Tignor on saxophone and violin. It was part of a long-poem series produced by Elizabeth Reddin, who also produced the double CD for Deerhead Records in conjunction with Ugly Duckling Presse. Jacqueline Waters was the opening reader. The music comes in and fades out and sounds great. It goes on for hours and just keeps getting better. We rehearsed for about a minute, but it didn’t matter. Thanks to Elizabeth, Jacqueline, Daniel Nohejl, Anna Moschovakis, and Matvei Yankelevich for making it happen.” (LW)
