Celebrating entropy in Cleveland (1991)
Five members of The Haters cut, ripped, teared & slashed away at a chair, mattress, table, VCR, oversized highway pylon with flashing orange light, two sofas, three car seats, four car tires, and five motorcycle tires. They started slowly at first. Hacking away at the fabric for about ten minutes. Thereafter, many from the audience would join in on the celebration. Everything got smashed. The performance ended when one performer set off a rather large smoke-bomb.
Drunk on Decay in Cleveland (1997)
A funnel, attached to a motorcycle that three performers were balancing on a large wooden box, was allowed to drag and erode on a sandpaper turntable. Excerpt HERE!
Dirwyn in Cleveland (2001)
A 30 minute variation of the Dirwyn performance with the U.T.B. used for additional sounds. Sheer layers of harsh grating jarring with abrupt changes in frequency had people both figuratively and literally falling out of their chairs. Excerpt HERE!
