PSYCHOJELLY (aztec economy) is a half-hour performance with live music and video detailing a narrative involving radioactive jelly, turtle eggs, floppy discs, James Bond, and cold war escapism set in Bulgaria in the 1980s. Aztec Economy has presented shows at the Obie-Award Winning Ice Factory at the Ohio Theater and 3LD in Lower Manhattan, as well as at P.S.122, The Tank (formerly in Tribeca), The Steamship Lilac off the Hudson River,
The Brick Theater, Brooklyn Fire Proof, New Orleans Fringe Festival, The Fridge in Washington D.C., and bars, backyards, rooftops, and churches all over Brooklyn.
DEN SVARTA FANAN is composed of Joe Merolla on Cello, Weasel Walter on Drums, and Nonoko Yashida on Alton Sax.
PHOTONS BE FREE (panoply performance lab) was originally cheap propaganda for the Hologram Liberation Front written by The Doctor (Joe). PPL’s 2012 piece attempt to provide a crucial platform for the voices of photon, electrons, and other enslaved particles (dear ones), as they shuffle together for warmth, scream their despair into ears too large and crude to understand, and riot across the spectrum in a haze of elementary self-organization.
