The following songs are on the free cd that I made for the Santa Monica Museum of Art reading/event for Boris Vian's "Manual of Saint-Germain-des-Prés as well as their ongoing exhibition "Semina Culture: Wallace Berman and his Circle."
The event takes place at the Santa Monica Museum of Art at 7pm November 18. I will be joined by my good friend Paul Knobloch who translated 'The Manual' as well as "Autumn in Peking." This promises to be an unusual event for me, due to the fact that I will be discussing my father Wallace Berman as well as Vian and his social scene in Paris 1949.
The following songs on the free cd are:
