Falling

Falling is based on a James Dickey poem of the same name that traces a flight attendant’s fall from an airplane (based on an actual New York Times article). This piece integrates an old LP recorded reading of the poem by the author. The interwoven recorded and sung text and accompanying music kaleidoscopically detail the flight attendant’s intense and transformative psychological and physical journey to the ground.
