excerpt hearts, 2012
ukulele and microphone, Dimensions Variable, Duration Variable
excerpt hearts is a thought exploration, an abstracted
stereotype of our lesbian past lives.
we are an under rehearsed cover band.
communicating through song and non-melodic momentary processing.
we are exploring the power dynamic of this co-dependent
relationship via live performance. i need to be amplified and Tess has the mic, in hand. our spacial relationship indicates our two dimensional platonically romantic relationship we made, just for this. love will prevail.
