Publisher: Compound Annex 

Year: 2012

Format: Two CD's with enclosed booklet 

Edition: First

Condition: New

This two CD set includes remastered recordings of Kelley’s 55 minute performance poem, Plato’s Cave, Rothko’s Chapel, Lincoln’s Profile at Artists Space, New York on Dec. 5th, 1985 and The Peristaltic Airwaves, a live performance that aired on KPFK Radio, Los Angeles on September 30th, 1986.

Plato’s Cave Rothko’s Chapel, Lincoln’s Profile in Kelley’s words was the “longest and most elaborate” of the texts he’d written for solo performance, and included incidental music by Sonic Youth and Adam Rudolph. The Peristaltic Airwaves – a live radio broadcast – employed sound effects, a house band, call-ins, and other live radio staples to create a unique and jarring quasi-narrative collage.

Co-produced by High Performance Magazine and Jacki Apple for “Soundings” on KPFK Pacifica Radio.
