CSC #13 “Miriam’s Well” with Crush and Miriam Simun
19 March 2018
Here are 33 words for wet: dripping, tidal, damp, pooling, puddle, fluid, tearing, flooding, watered, spongy, flowing, liquid, run-off, moist, percolate, rain, snow, ice, vapor, soak, evaporate, river, lake, sea, frozen, glacial, lubricate, irrigate, that, bathe, flow, flush, absorb, circulate. And 33 of the funkiest D’Angelo tracks to match it. Let the Messiah baptize you, while Miriam Simun, his prophetess, heralds a new day of human experience with excerpts from Astrida Neimanis’ Bodies of Water and Vilem Fluser and Luis Bec’s Vampyroteuthis Infernalis. This ambition is connected to “Miriam,” the name and Biblical predecessor, which/who, according to various Jewish sources, is closely associated with water, rebellion, and elevation. And all of it is further encapsulated in the idea that “mri”, “Miriam’s” alleged ancient Egyptian roots, means “the lover.” Thanks for your well, Miriam.
