Talking Paper #13 Dallas Athent

Episode date, May 4th, 2017: I speak with writer and artist Dallas Athent about her new book of poetry, Theia Mania, out now from AntiSentiMental Society. In addition to her own poetic work, Athent volunteers her time promoting the work of other writers by coordinating east coast reading events (along with myself) for literary nonprofit, Nomadic Press. I also recorded readings from the launch event for Theia Mania, which took place on April 30th 2017 at the Jersey City studio of its artist, Maria Pavlovska, and featured live readings by Athent, writer/editor Chris Campanioni, AntiSentiMental Society editor Ronna Lebo, Brooklyn writer/filmmaker Prospero Vega, and culture chronicler Anthony Haden-Guest. Campanioni reads a portion of "The Real Thing (#AlternativeFacts)" Lebo reads "9 Steps to Achieve Full Deniability" Vega reads "A Chinese Woman in the Rain" Anthony Haden Guest reads "Newscast" Dallas Athent: http://dallasathent.com/ Maria Pavlovska: http://www.mariapavlovska.com/ Eve ...

Talking Paper #12 Hampton Fancher

Episode date, April 20th, 2017: I sat down with veteran screen actor, director, and writer Hampton Fancher at his home in Brooklyn, New York. 2017 is a big year for Fancher. First, as the subject of a documentary film about his life and career, titled Escapes, set for a summer release. Second as the co-screenwriter of the feature film Blade Runner 2049, which debuts in October. The film is a follow-up to 1982's massively influential science fiction classic Blade Runner, directed by Ridley Scott -- a film production that Fancher set in motion when he secured the rights to the source novel (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?) from author Philip K.Dick. He then served as screenwriter, before giving way to David Peoples, but maintained an Executive Producer credit. For this year's follow-up, actors Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling utilized a screenplay written by Fancher and Michael Green. This interview was my second with Fancher, some six years after speaking with him for my film site...

Talking Paper #11 Texts 2 Tascha

Episode date, April 6th, 2017: I went to GAMBA Forest, a multi-purpose space that serves as both a performance and art venue, located at 231 Norman Avenue in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. It's run by Melissa Hunter-Gurney and Chris Carr, who are co-founders of the literary publication, GAMBAZine. They recently worked with literary nonprofit Nomadic Press to host a poetry and music showcase at GAMBA Forest, titled "Texts 2 Tascha." The event's name and the night's lineup was curated by poet Dallas Athent, to honor the birthday of her friend, the artist Natascha Young, who was visiting Brooklyn from her home in England -- where she oversees the Venus A Day project, in which she carves the ancient female form, known as "the venus", from one of a variety of materials over the course of a single day, as part of a larger series, which she then chronicles on Instagram. I recorded the event, which included the following performers: Joanna Valente reading four poems: -- The Ones You Left Behind Are ...

Talking Paper #10 Claire Durand-Gasselin, Craig Kite, & Brian Sheffield

Episode date, March 23rd, 2017: I speak with Claire Durand-Gasselin, Craig Kite, & Brian Sheffield. They are three of the co-founding editors (along with Margaux Taleux) of POST(blank) -- a French-American bilingual word-art publication from Mad Gleam Press. The publication's first volume, titled POSTpaper, debuted in fall of 2016 with 92 pages. The second volume, POSTmortem, came out in winter of 2017 with 144 pages. The Mad Gleam Press website describes its mission as highlighting "the conjoined strengths of text and image by publishing visual poetic pieces, visual poems, dialogues on arts and ideas between artists of the two media, and excerpts of artist books. We also want to celebrate and speak to the infrastructure of the physical communities that come together around small press publications. We hope to offer a space for visual and literary artists to compliment each other’s work and to make new connections across mediums, genres and cultures." The Mad Gleam summary of the c...

Episode date, January 26th, 2017: Neighbors is the theme of this episode of Talking Paper on Radio Free Brooklyn. I begin by interviewing my next door neighbors René Sascha Johannsen & Trice Angie Christiansen about print media influences in their native Denmark (and beyond), Trice's skin care line RAAW in a jar, and Rene's documentary work with Danish band Lukas Graham. Next, I listen to my downstairs neighbor Ben Pomeroy read the story of his brief-but-memorable trip to Havana, Cuba 16 years ago, and two locals who inspired him to write down his tale for posterity.

Episode date, January 12th, 2017: Life experience is the theme of this episode of Talking Paper (recorded on location at Por Vida in the Barrio Logan section of San Diego, CA) - that includes writing about one's own experiences (and those of others), keeping your knowledge & body healthy through research, and handling the end of life.
