I’ve created hours of spoken word pieces and ambient music over the past few years, and shot some (very odd) short films. I’m excited at how new technologies allow me to present my work in a variety of formats.
This page features the best of those endeavours and the samples I’ve provided should give you some insights into my creative mindset…and thematic obsessions.
I’ll start with some spoken word offerings, dramatizations of my published short stories and poetry, usually with accompanying music. These pieces are also available at BandCamp, if you’d like to download and listen to them at your leisure:
“Apocalypse Beach” (from my collection Sex & Other Acts of the Imagination)
“Invisible Boy” (from Sex & Other Acts of the Imagination)
“The Strange Music” (from Sex & Other Acts of the Imagination)
“Walt Disney in Hell” (from Sex & Other Acts of the Imagination) *Language Warning*
“The Cattletruck” (from Sex & Other Acts of the Imagination)
“Man Disassembling” (from Sex & Other Acts of the Imagination)
“The Hibakusha” (from Sex & Other Acts of the Imagination)
“Daughter” (from my collection Exceptions & Deceptions)
A live reading from the ancient amphitheater of Epidaurus (July, 2016):
“The Midnight Detective” (my homage to noir films and detective fiction)
“Cranes” (from my collection Stromata: Prose Works)
from Prima Materia (2016)
“Paint the Sky Transparent” (MP3)
I’ll save space by merely providing a link to my Vimeo page or my YouTube “channel”.
All of my short films are available there, in all their glory.
In the meantime, here’s a two-minute short my son Liam created (with the help of his mom) when he was twelve or thirteen years old. I am pleased to introduce the unforgettable, the searing, the horrifying…”Twilight Kitten”:
