    <a href="">Rant/ Rant Back/ Back Rant</a> continues my engaging the media-logos spectacle by gleaning newspeak catch phrases, saving them as the content for a performance and then ranting like a crazy person who shouts the news on the street. Peter Sinclair does a co-performance where he grabs audio samples of what I am saying and then he adds them to the live sound mix. I then respond to what he throws into the mix. The words and catch phrases become rhythmic loops or phrases. This harkens back to my early rap piece although Peter had no knowledge of that work when we started the rant performance. Indeed, there is an apparent structure within mass media and communication that seems to proscribe the repetition of phrases. Essentially this is the idea that if you repeat a phrase many times it will gain the aura of truth. <a href=""></a> Done in collaboration with Peter Sinclair.
