Smooch Music

forweb_Program_Cale_SmoochMusic_1987-1

 

In this simple and comic monologue, David Cale recounted twenty-three stories of love, lust, and erotic fantasies, fusing cultural stereotypes and esoteric concepts. The ordinary, yet restless research of love was animated by a musical accompaniment written and performed by a trio guided by Roy Nathanson. Cale played out diverse personas through continuous chatter, contained body movements, and clever use of lights. The event featured Roy Nathanson on tenor, alto, and soprano saxophone and clarinet, Brad Jones on the bass, and E. J. Rodriguez on percussion.
