ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Davis Schneiderman and Don Meyer collaborate on this extraordinary sound collage combining spoken word, music and audio bites from appropriately diverse media sources. The result is a hip, hopped-up portrait of the the way we live now. Memorials to Future Catastrophes is the first phase of a multimedia project that starts with these suggestive catastrophes in a world increasingly cordoned off by the representative fears of terrorism, bio-disease outbreaks, and natural disasters. Additional video collaboration with Tom Denlinger can be found at www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhpa41iSwHE.

Davis Schneiderman is a multimedia artist and co-author of the novel Abecedarium (Chiasmus Press, 2007), and author of DIS (BlazeVox, 2008) and Multifesto: A Henri d'Mescan Reader (Spuyten Duyvil, limited ed 2006). He is co-editor of Retaking the Universe: Williams S. Burroughs in the Age of Globalization (Pluto, 2004) and the forthcoming The Exquisite Corpse: Creativity, Collaborations, and the World’s most Epistemological Parlor Game (U. Of Nebraska). His creative work has been accepted by numerous publications including Fiction International, The Chicago Tribune, The Iowa Review, and Exquisite Corpse. He has recently been named Director of Lake Forest College Press/&NOW Books. He can be found, virtually, at davischneiderman.com.

Composer and musicologist Don Meyer (http://web.mac.com/emmeyer/Don_Meyer,_Composer/Don_Meyer.html) collaborates with choreographers, filmmakers, theater directors, and authors to create multi-media works that interweave these artforms with classical, jazz, electronic, and popular music. He is the author of articles on American cultural history and rock music, as well as the music appreciation textbook Perspectives on Music (Prentice Hall, 2003). He began teaching at Lake Forest College in 1995 and is now Associate Professor and Chair of the Music Department.
