      The music is a voice improvisation recorded using mostly the laptop mic, and then near the end a couple supporting harmonies were recorded with a proper mic and used as contrasting sound. The video portion was shot along the West Side Highway in NYC, I suppose around the upper 50s or so. There was a lot of construction going on and I thought it looked pretty fascinating. I used a very standard point and shoot to collect the footage, and AfterEffects to composite it together. The video was produced for my interactive website, where circular and hexagon-shaped videos can be clicked on their panels and turned. You can see this one, as well as two other circles and two hexagons, there: http://www.theturn.tv

                  Recorded at 848 Community Space, June 24, 2000 to celebrate the opening of Tasmanian photographer Tony Ryan's show. This is when I performed with my CHEROTIC ALL-STAR BAND at the opening of the first U.S. exhibition of the work of the tasmania's erotic photographer Tony Ryan. It broke out in the second half of the performance into a very juicy erotic dance which pulled in several audience members! When I reviewed Tony Ryan's first book of photography, “Beauty/Reality” for the 7th issue of my zine, The Cherotic (r)Evolutionary, we had not met in person. I met Tony on the Internet. I was searching for erotic art that wasn't legs-spread, beer- can- in- the- ass- dildo- in- cunt- sucking- cock parody on sex (such parodies have their place, but ...). And that is where the world also met Tony. On the Internet is where Tony broke out of the isolation that is felt by most artists who do not do fashionable art, who do not fit in, or who run afoul of the local art power structure, and/or live in the boonies ... In Tony's case, Tasmania! As our correspondence continued, I encouraged Tony to live out one of his dreams, to come to the Bay Area and show his photography in the U.S.. He was able to actually come twice, appearing on my live internet show, The Shaman's Den, both times. In 2000, Tony showed his photography at 848 Divisadero, a radical art space in San Francisco, where I had done a series of performances in the late 90s. We did a great music jam to launch the exhibit. He also showed his work at Passion Flower in Oakland, an adult shop where I also performed over the years, doing all-night and other extended time ritual audience-participation performances. Tony was eager to return in 2001, so I set two of my students to work finding spaces that would host Tony's photography in San Francisco and Oakland/Berkeley. This time, Tony was able to show in four different spaces, including a repeat visit to Passion Flower, and an exhibit at Artists Television Access (ATA) in San Francisco, an underground film/video house where I have also shown my films. I was happy that Tony could show his photos here, to expose a live audience to his work. He was also able to do a series of photo shoots in the Bay Area while he was here. Tony shows that by putting your art directly out into the world, you can by-pass all road blocks that the power structures put in your way. The work is humanistic (thus, truly feminist), completely erotic because it is not limited by sex. Tony, as do I, admits to being especially attracted to working with women, to what he calls the special tension. In fact, he subtitled his first book, "Male Eye-Female Mind". By doing so, he called attention to the major and active role of the female models in the creative process. I think Tony's art and my own have evolved from similar beginnings. Some of my earliest performances were what I call “street performances”. I had been painting oils for years, painting with a brush strapped to my forehead, painting nudes from magazine photos. One day, a rich woman asked me to paint a nude of her. My wife set me and my paints up in the fancy living room as the woman undressed. On that day I realized how art can give people permission to do what normally is forbidden. This began my street series. I sat on the center plaza, "selling newspapers". But selling papers was only a context. The context for me was an excuse for watching people, talking to people who had the slowness and the insightful curiosity to stop and talk...a way for me to ask them to model for me. I painted a lot of the special people from the street performances. I noticed the changes in the people when they took off their clothes; how they relaxed, how they started talking on a deeper level about important personal things. In this same way, the nude body in each of Tony's photos is just the starting point to reveal the "subject's" personality/spirit, to explore relationships, and to dive into the magical intimate altered reality of the shooting session, the special intimate reality created when artist and model come together in art.
