descriptions, reviews, &c.

"The epitaph is a short verse honoring the deceased, inscribed on his tombstone. It can be a brief record of his life, an aphorism, or words he lived by. An extreme mood state can cause a warped perspective, in which that ephemeral moment of suffering feels like "the story of my life." At the lowest depression, one might feel like he is dead already. --Say it were so, how would the epitaph read? "Epitaphs" (Colleen McCarthy-Smee, 2015) is a book of short verses honoring the deceased and the not-dead-yet who suffer(ed) variously psychoses and suicide. In performance, David Grollman and Colleen McCarthy improvise of the book, with David accompanying himself on snare."


Artist Biographies:

"David Grollman is a percussionist from NYC who performs freely improvised music. He performs in art galleries, tiki bars, and venues of curious ambience made more curious by his mongrel sounds. David bows, scrapes, blows, slaps, rubs, caresses, abuses, and generally tests the limits of his instrument. Anything is game. Anything may be a participant if the musical conversation calls for it. Artist, instrument, audience, and environment become ambiguous terms, conspiring in a theatrical exploration of chance dynamics and serendipitous exchanges."

-David Grollman 8/18/2017
