Richard E.T. White; White, Richard E T; Kirck, Robin; Dresher, Paul; Eckert, Rinde; Reffkin, Gene; Cloidt, Jay; Paul Dresher Ensemble
Format
Video; VHS
Summary
Slow fire gives us a glimpse into the thoughts of one man in isolation. Through operatic aria, speech, and declamatory incantations, his language vacillates between common cliches and poetic soliloquy. The first of three works in the "American Trilogy," Slow fire conjures up the imbalances and dark passions lurking behind the "normal" veneer of middle-class American life.
