  • THE TRUTH / LA BELLE DAME

    64 views 1 month ago
    THE TRUTH is a song created in one take. It was mastered by Keith McCormick and features vocals by Joe Kotas, George Scherer and Bob Kotas. The story behind this Live Poem is as follows. The musical tracks by Keith and George and backing vocals had been laid down first. The song was unfinished. McCormick suggested that Joe Kotas take a shot at it. Joe had a poem in his pocket called The Truth ("by Probably"- which suggests that truth contains doubt.) Kotas heard the music for the first time as he read his poem. The interplay between the recorded vocals and the live track is almost magical and comprises the essence of high art. Such dadaistic ubu roi creation is what the Surrealists strived for. The type of synchronicity found here can never be achieved by preparation. It only happens along the cutting edge of the Extraordinary. The TRUTH was recorded on Elmwood Avenue in Buffalo NY in November 1984 and was inspired by a Fems concert on Halloween. The painting comprising the video is a Pendulum Painting called La Belle Dame by Joe Kotas and is featured at Saatchi Gallery. https://www.saatchiart.com/...... Show less
