Bora Yoon





Unlike many of the avant garde performers we poke fun at here, Bora Yoon seems to have a modicum of musical talent, a voice, and some ideas. (Although "music by carrot chopping" is probably an idea better left unexplored.) But all her skills are in service to a kind of spacey, esoteric, pretentious ambiance that seems, to me, hell to sit through.

There's an hour's worth below to test your tolerance.

Trisha Brown in “Accumulation”



It's not much of a dance, but Trisha Brown could certainly have had a career as a sign-language interpreter in South Africa.

Oh, yes, recipient of MacArthur "genius grant."

Stale Puppy-Dog Tails



Let me know how long you last....

Another nice long performance here, by the artist known as Vetza. You get to see her as well.

"Vetza is a multi-talented artist who has full control over a range of disciplines including classical instrumentation, experimental sound improvisation, voice and theater. She is an innovator representing the LA Arts community in the international art world. Vetza is an original member of the the LA Free Music Society. She is a writer, composer and so much more."
