Steve Dalachinsky - words
was the second of a new Tuesday evening vocal series at the Local 269 in the
Lower East Side, curated by singer and improviser Fay Victor with dancer and
maker-of-happenings Patricia Nicholson. Coming up in this series are Lisa Sokolov,
Ellen Christie, Dean Bowman, Kyoko Kitamura, Leena Conquest and many others.
Undeterred by Steve
Dalachinsky's voice mic problems, Balgochian started arco and Dalachinsky dove
right in. The music and the words kept getting more and more intense. When you
hear Dalachinsky mention "the book" being "heavy," he was
lifting his new 430-page tome in collaboration with photographer Jacques Bisceglia,
Reaching Into The Unknown - 1964-2009 (RogueArt), from which came many
of this night's pieces. The hour-long set flowed in a way that precluded applause
for individual pieces, although one excited audience member snapped her fingers
in approbation Beat-style.
