Disposable Venus Bits – Video

Thank you to everyone who came to the Foundry on Sunday, I had a blast. Hope you did too. Thanks to Steve Willey, there is a rather wonderful video of the event in full at Openned.

Special thanks to Elizabeth-Jane Burnett, Steve Willey and Geneviève Beth Grady for making it such a great event. At some point very soon I’ll post up my remixes of Ideas on Oedipal Bitstreams which I made especially for the event

Also potentially of interest, if you dug any of the music which was playing throughout the performance, the track listing was as follows:

  • Mascara Snowed — Elizabeth-Jane Burnett
  • It’s All Blooming Now Mt. Heart Attack — Liars
  • Sometime Around Midnight — The Airborne Toxic Event
  • Love Will Tear Us Apart — Joy Division
  • Drain Cosmetics — Serena Maneesh


DISPOSABLE VENUS BITS: poems on the wall, on a dancer, and in the air… – Sunday, 10 May 2009

Along with Elizabeth-Jane Burnett and Steve Willey, I will be performing at the Foundry on Sunday night, and DJing for 1 hour. I will be contributing a remix of Ideas on Oedipal Bitstreams, which is reformatted and incorporates images and texts by Elizabeth-Jane Burnett. Doing this excites me greatly.

Full details and flyer below. Admission is free. Bring a date, y’all.

An evening of experiment and collaboration exploring the performance of poems engaging with new technologies.
