ESCAPE-ISM

ESCAPE-ISM

ESCAPE-ISM is a found-sound dream-drama starring Ian
Svenonius, singer (Chain & the Gang, The Make-Up, Weird
War, etc), author ('The Psychic Soviet,' 'Supernatural
Strategies for Making a Rock 'n' Roll Group,' 'Censorship
Now!!'), talk show host (Soft Focus), experimental
filmmaker ('Launching of the Dream Weapon,' 'What is a
Group?,' 'The Seduction of Paolo Hewitt'), and public
speaker.
ESCAPE-ISM is "live collage" with a beat box, a ritual
offering to the fractured landscape of AM radio. It features
original performances of songs, game-time sportcasts, eyein-the-sky
traffic reports, doppler radar weather forecasts,
live interviews, sermons, world news and opinion, guest
appearances, electric guitars, drum machine, electromagnetic
tapes, fuzz box, sickening sounds, and stolen
samples. Critics have been unanimous in saying "I didn't see
anything; I mind my own business. Listen, I don't want any
trouble."
ESCAPE-ISM originally was designed as a live performance
to accompany the book tour promoting Svenonius'
"Supernatural Strategies for Making a Rock 'n' Roll
Group"(2013 Akashic) but has since mutated, devolved, and
is now sought out to play rock 'n' roll gigs, art openings,
shindigs, conventions, and the like.
