gen ken montgomery with John Hudak
at Roulette April 23, 1998
Domestic Release/Crossings (with John Hudak) In Domestic Release, his latest creation for The Generator Sound Theater, Gen Ken brews a homespun feast for multiple speakers derived from the unheeded, annoying ordinary sounds of his own domicile: the voices of spoons, cars, crayons, cat's' tongues, coffee pots, clocks, faucets and an anonymous caller. John Hudak collaborates in Crossings, a sonic trek from the Brooklyn Bridge to Milano Centrale to Paris Orly Sud to Munich Bahnhof. A meditation on transition extracted from manipulated recordings.
