These new Zilverhill recordings are informed by both the art of August Natterer (Specifically "Axle of the World, with Rabbit" and the "uncertainty of good fortune" depicted therein) and Lewis Carroll's "Looking Glass" (Nobody/Somebody). Nixon's portentous voice & actions are intuitively fractured, reappraised and manipulated to form the spine of the pieces; the desolation of drunkenness & schizophrenia, cold, sarcasm, and distant/past/fleeting recollections provide the flesh. Thus the next idiom in the zilverhill discourse is borne.
August Natterer Axle of the World, with Rabbit, The rabbit represented "the uncertainty of good fortune. It began to run on the roller... the rabbit was then changed into a zebra (upper part striped) and then into a donkey (donkey's head) made of glass. A napkin was hung on the donkey; it was shaved."
