one of the perils (but also pleasures!) of ethnographic fieldwork is that one gets caught up in other people’s projects. recently, one of these “other projects” has been the u.s. tour of the malataw theater cooperative, a performing group out of a’tolan, where i currently do research. everyone has seen me around with my mics and so i was conscripted into recording a demo for their performance at the passport to taiwan festival 2012. if you are around NYC on the 13th of may, go and give the festival a listen–and say hi to my friends from a’tolan! here’s one of the clips from the demo (via my soundcloud site):
