Brutal Brain

Brutal Brain was a performance piece I donated to the annual Triangle Arts Association Benefit, Feb 2013. There were no bidders hence no documentation, but for anyone out there who would like to participate in this type of performance, it is ongoing.

Brutal Brain, Performance
Description:
We all have memories that haunt us, moments in time we wish we could have said or done something differently. Artist Camilla Ha invites anyone who would like a do-over to participate in this joint performance. Whether it’s an unrealized act or an attempt to reclaim personal power, Ha will do her best to dress and behave like the person (or object) that haunts your thoughts. Together, the scenario will be recreated, but this time with a more desirable outcome. The idea is to provide a “memory corrective” that allows the subject/ performer to create a new memory by changing an old one.

NUD is a sporadic sound collaboration: me on vocals/ electronics, Kate Henderson on beats/ electronics.
Pics and description by Kerwin Williamson: “NUD… was powerful & sensual. This amazing dynamic duo put forth a barrage of electronic sounds that melded with the alternating colored lights, leaving the crowd in a tizzy. Stellar thumping beats with smooth wailing banshee vocals.”
