In this reading, Jackson Mac Low performs the '1st Milarepa Gatha', followed by a series of some new poems.
In '1st Milarepa Gatha', Mac Low utters phonemes or the names of letters with some sounds prolonged or intoned in pitch sequences, like liturgical chant. (Milarepa is the founder of Tibet Buddism)
The artist then reads a series of new poems with simple body movement and gestures and in various rhythms of speaking the words and letters. After his performance, the artist discusses with the audience about the method he uses in composing his work.
