Invitation For Geese

Debora Solomon - Olive oil, grass powder, ume boshi vinegar [2004]

We've all experienced the culinary dilemma that ensues when a goose RSVPs to your dinner party: What to cook to satisfy everyone? Well, Debora Solomon postulates that a flexibility in the menu and the very way we look at "human" food can inspire more social contact between currently isolated species. The project works closely with Natalie Jeremijenko's "OOZ" which creates urban spaces where animals and people interact voluntarily. Instead of one species being caged and the other observing, these places build respectful inter-species relationships and reflect on the power of both wanting to come together and spend time.

Christine Fellows - To A Prize Bird (mp3): Christine's new songs are born preloaded with history, with residue memory from an old soul. Her freely classical instrumentation tells its stories with rich depth like the tympani, crisp songwriting like the xylophone, and harmonic intimacy like the strings. But the honest vocal establishes the perspective of the music in the reflection of the action, not the action itself. Buy her new album "Nevertheless" here, it is highly recommended.

I have not heard from any geese after this post, perhaps they have difficulty accessing the internet? Ideas for overcoming this barrier?
