Cheesing!

From: Marjorie Van Halteren
Length: 07:24

Sound-rich comic essay about language

Marge2007web_small I made this piece for the podcast "Catalogue of Ships," by Michael Kraskin and David Terry, the style of which fits my own perfectly. Fun, confessional, surprising, compositional. I offer it on prx for listeners to enjoy, and stations, looking for something light, bright, and a bit novel.

Review of Cheesing!

"What did that mean?" Marjorie Van Halteren's essay/performance piece lives comfortably on the continuum between Laurie Anderson and Ken Nordine. Polished rather than slick, smart rather than clever, self deprecating, observational and well produced this piece passes my ultimate test: Do you want it on a long night drive through a desert? Programable anywhere and a welcome addition to any discussion of language and cultural perspectives.
