Phillip Zohn Catalysis (1972; 01:26:25)
A tape-recording of my half of a long telephone conversation I had with my best friend, Phillip Zohn, ten years before he died of AIDS. The topics discussed include science fiction, street people and the homeless, passion and will, commitment and truth, and what it means when a dog tries to fuck your knee. The transcribed text formed the script for my early morning street performances of it on East Broadway, Essex, Orchard, and Division Streets on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The original eavesdropped public-space cell phone conversation.
