striking uncomfortable poses while discussing the nature of power

Just had a re listen to this piece I made in our old place anew. 3 improvisations sculpted into a piece based on watching the same 6:51 youtube video of Chomsky and Foucault from Dutch TV in 1971 as compositional guidance.

I attempt to work on a daily basis with Alexander Technique, something I’ve done over the past few years. One of the things it makes you think about is how you and other people hold postures and how bodies are used in daily life. Both Chomsky and Foucault get themselves into some pretty uncomfortable positions in this debate. Guess its due to the nature of discussing power post 1968 or just very uncomfortable TV furniture!
