This is an artist's book that includes a short story about a difficult, sexy, and troubled rock star, Brumas, who wakes up in soul-and-mind-inseparable-from-body when she meets her mystic double on a beach in Greece. A record of five songs written and sung by the artist, with music composed by Thomas Kochheiser, is part of the book, as are photos that build a mysterious and intimate narrative related to the text but not illustrating it. BRUMAS, lyrics included, appears in Clairvoyance (For Those In The Desert).
A simple linear meaning cannot be extracted from BRUMAS. The dense and explicit language, combined with the photographs and record, explode the purely narrative and force a multi-textural/textural reading._____Sarah Moore, High Performance, Vol. 6, Number 4, 1983
