SINGING THE NYC PHONEBOOK
SINGING THE NYC PHONE BOOK: CENTER FOR BOOK ARTS: Linda Mary Montano
OCTOBEER 7, 2016
Many years ago, I chanted the names of people in a phone book from a tower in a mid western city.
It was a majestic and classic and grandiose event . But alas, it was banned and shut down because it reverberated all over the area and sounded eerily like a death chant.
That was years ago.
For Nicolas Dumit Estevez’s event titled: ENACTING THE TEXT: PERFORMING WITH WORDS
Chant names and not addresses from the Manhattan phone book.
