Starting with a show at CTM Festival on February 5, the events herald the re-release of 1985 record Breadwoman & Others Stories on RVNG Intl the same month, produced by performance artist Homler in collaboration with electro-acoustic composer and LA avant-garde contemporary Steve Moshier.
The live collaboration follows a recent residency by Warwick at Villa Aurora where he spent three months as part of the German exchange programme in Los Angeles, exploring the varied desert landscape and accompanying mythology of the Californian city and its perimeter.
Homler’s recording too, was born from legend where it describes the artist driving in an ocean blue classic Cadillac to meet poet and playwright Deena Metzger in Topanga Canyon in 1982: “Passing a non-descript desert patch where tall wheat and mustard flowers grow, Anna opens her mouth and sings in a salient stream of rhythmic, melodic sound.”
