Audiographs: Songs from the Tenderloin (Audio)

Jan 01, 1987
Created by Earwax Productions, Barney Jones, Marcos Kounilakis, and Jim McKee
Condensed and dramatized portraits of people living on the streets of San Francisco. Recorded interviews form the basis of this work, but interviews set in alternating environments: in the street and within a musical score. In the music, the edited and repeated voices become part of the rhythm: recurring beats that intensify the toughness and tenderness of the people's reflections— the pain, humor, and ethics that govern their lives. Commissioned by New American Radio.
