Item Description
"Daytime Viewing (1979-80) is an extended narrative song, based on a casual
analysis of daytime television drama and the audience phenomena such
programming addresses. The piece explores the use of fantasy as a survival
mechanism against loneliness, illustrating the human compulsion to inflate
the mundane to mythological proportions. A central female character weaves
tales, using threads of personal experience and the idea of TV as friend, as
mantra, and as transformational window between imagined spectacle and the
pedestrian plane.
Originally released as a private cassette edition documenting the
collaborative performance piece of the same name by Jacqueline Humbert &
David Rosenboom, this heady, thoroughly enjoyable work is available for the
first time ever on CD and LP. Jacqueline Humbert (aka J. Jasmine) is a
songwriter of brains and wit on par with Robert Ashley, with whom she's
worked extensively. David Rosenboom's complex, harmonic electronic
arrangements are accentuated brilliantly by percussion from William Winant.
Daytime Viewing can happily be added to a small but significant group of
work that, through lesser-known paths, engaged in an equally revelatory
reexamination of the Great American Songbook as Minimalism did with 20th
Century composition. Mastered by David Rosenboom.
*LP edition is in an edition of 800 copies. The vinyl master was cut using
Direct Metal Mastering. Download card for Lossless or Lossy digital files
included. The LP jacket is printed on dyed, textured paper, as is the CD
