Agustina Woodgate the host of Radio Espacio Estacion broadcasting from Auto Body invited me to do a reading of invoices, which she found in the auto body garage. For the performance I wore black plastic bags over my body with a small hole stretched out for my head. I also downloaded a loop machine that I used to record my voice. I used vocal improvisation throughout the performance. A variety of dialects, singing, and sounds were combined to interpret the text. I surprisingly found myself using traditional rhythms found in black hymns. The invoices were jammed and stuck into a blue plastic crate, there must have been at least 2000 pages if not more. By the end of the performance I had gone through and thrown all the invoices in the air, the garage floor was covered.
