The CalArts Pool Fisheye Snapshot

Allan Graubard (Critical Studies 71)

Allan Graubard (Critical Studies 71) shares, “Of late I’ve been collaborating with Canadian artist Gregg Simpson on an audio version (my text, his music) of a piece entitled ‘Night Hawk’; a noir-esque narrative of a private detective who falls for a gal who killed another guy he didn’t know. The text, with Gregg’s collages, was published in a recent book of mine—selected poems and tales: Western Terrace (Exstasis Editions, Victoria, BC, 2019). By the way, ‘Western Terrace’ is dedicated to the late composer/conductor Lawrence D. ‘Butch’ Morris, the CalArts 2012 Herb Alpert Award winner; and one of my most important collaborators over three plus decades.”
