The World Of Echo & The Narcissism Of Minor Differences


For a single evening, Arthur Russell presented three pieces performed with violincello, harmonica, and vocals, and David Linton presented four, including the premiere of N.O.M.D. (The Narcissism of Minor Differences) created in collaboration with choreographer Tamar Kotoske. In Linton’s headlining piece, live drumming initiates a layered sequence of pre-recorded tape tracks “toward the shaping of songs normally associated with the band context.” The work signaled Linton’s involvement with the New York downtown music scene, set in dialogue with Russell’s shared engagement with experimental composition as well as more popular forms such as disco and folk.
