In November, 2018, I visited Los Angeles as poet-in-residence for the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Fluxconcert, the keystone event in its year-long Fluxus Festival.

Through two days of rehearsals and the evening’s performances, I gathered notes for a poem that engaged with works by John Cage, La Monte Young, Yoko Ono, Luciano Berio, Nam June Paik, Allison Knowles, Simone Forti, Christian Wolff, Dick Higgins, and others.

The finished work, which examines community, chance, and intimacy is documented HERE.
