february 15, 2015 - red martyrdom

it's not so much love versus hate, maybe more a teetering on that thin line between opposition and surrender.

there are those who believe, have believed so profoundly in someone or something that submission poses, has posed the only solution. be it to die a violent death at the hands of another (red martyrdom) or to die to oneself everyday (white martyrdom). it's a choice. wholehearted. and i respect the lack of pink.

recordings are from an ongoing series of reel to reel, single take performances inspired by martyrs. saint triduana and saint edmund, for example.
