I am very happy for my friend and former client Dao Strom who sent me news (and photo-evidence) of the release of her new cd and chapbook. “We Were Meant to Be a Gentle People”. Amen, sister.
And just in case you are some kind of Don Delillo nutcase here is even more proof:
Dao is recording under the name The Sea and The Mother. I think the working title of the project was based on the pun of the French words for “mare” and “mer”. She recorded with Dylan Magierek of Badman Records and TypeFoundry. And she is a Michener Fellow as a novelist, among other things you can call her. More here.
edita, a few minutes later, way past my bed time: and this is a good preview or excerpt or companion text to Dao Strom’s new project. I like the part about the picture of her brother at the camps. What a long strange trip its been, for we linguistically-conscious beings, in this long story we call the universe. Yes, tieu. Yes, Dao.
