In addition to providing my editorial services for the latest edition of Melbourne’s literary spunk-fest Going Down Swinging, I was also lucky enough to score myself a spot on one of the two spoken-word CDs accompanying the magazine.
The track, ‘That’s Buddha’, was recorded live at le Festival Voix d’Amériques in Montreal in 2009. The performance involved two Buddha Machines and me, was recorded on Wednesday 11 February at the Casa del Popolo, and runs for about six minutes.
Thanks to Ian Ferrier for selecting the track!
If you’d like to hear what two Buddha Machines sound like, you’ll have to buy the CD, and you can do that by whacking your mouse over this big old photo:
Otherwise, you can read the original poem or listen to the track online at the untold Indiefeed Performance Poetry channel, which is profiling the GDS issue with a series of tracks over the coming fortnight. To hear the track, as well as some cute commentary from GDS editors Lisa and Nathan, get thee to Indiefeed immediately!
