Max Middle Ode

Max Middle put some new sound files up on the web site - the most recent being 'The Progress of Egarag Hguanavak'. Listen especially at 3:41 for the apparent 'poetic' inspiration to this sound piece, and it's made very explicit in the chant at the very end. An interesting epic-like ode to a service station methinks. Max is odd. But in a good way. He appears at the Dusty Owl reading series Sunday, 5 November 2006.

It never ceases to amaze me how Max Middle can not only draw a crowd but also attract fellow performers to play along with him on stage. If you've never seen the Max Middle Sound Project live, it's a trip. The Dog and Pony Show (the karaoke sound board guy), though not part of the act formally, did add another element to the performance with his reverb sound effects during some of the troupe's several pieces. I toted my own little intellectual hooligan Matthew along not knowing how he'd react but he slept though the entire act. That's a good thing. Next up at the Dusty Owl Reading Series is none other than George Elliott Clarke.
