MP3 Melody Sumner Carnah
3 MB PHP File - Platform: MP3

Carnahan's satyrical dystopic aural-gymnastic prose-poems are dazzlingly performed by Wiseman's disc jockey / cult leader / ten-year-old-girl / Delphic oracle-voiced characters, swathed in Deane's electro-acoustic sound storms.

"Try Being Alive in THIS World" was adapted from a Burning Books video/audio installation, "See You in Hell," which premiered at MOV-iN Gallery, College of Santa Fe, 11 Dec 2006. It was described as "a stupefying ride in a shopping cart shortly before the end of the world. Rolling past miles of plastic toys, questionable food, and florescent boxes of powerful cleaning agents, growing feelings of suffocation and panic are soothed by the carefully programmed announcements coming through the loudspeakers. Will we be punished later or is this it?"

This three track EP was written by Melody Sumner Carnahan, performed by Elizabeth Wiseman, with sound design by Dino J. A. Deane, and additional source recordings by Michael Sumner and Dino J. A. Deane.
