about

"The zoo cannot but disappoint. The public purpose of zoos is to offer visitors the opportunity of looking at animals. Yet nowhere in a zoo can a stranger encounter the look of an animal… They have been immunized to encounter, because nothing can any more occupy a central place in their attention. Therein lies the ultimate consequence of their marginalization… This historic loss, to which zoos are a monument, is now irredeemable for the culture of capitalism."

— John Berger, "Looking at Animals" from About Looking (1980)

Looking at Animals is a single unedited performance of improvised prepared guitar, recorded October 26, 2017. Originally released February 1, 2018. Remastered August 9, 2018.
