WESA details the Wild Human doc! by David Bernabo


From WESA’s Bill O’Driscoll:

“Wild Human is part Western-states travelogue, part essay and, unexpectedly, part performance film, all unified by Bernabo’s understated voice-over narration. It opens with a high-angle shot of tourists swarming a national-park lookout platform in Bryce Canyon, in Utah: On the edge of a railed cliff overlooking a spectacular Western panorama, they leisurely stroll about in ball caps, taking photos and clutching take-out coffee cups. It’s a ‘normal’ scene suddenly rendered weird: once-inaccessible wild grandeur domesticated for mass consumption.”

10 New Songs by David Bernabo


10 New Songs, the first of three, possibly four new releases, is out now. These are songs that were written during the recording process, generally quietly at night.

Two sets of lyrics from the album:


Rocks on a paint can
Or aerosol spirit
Painted on the wall, spirit
There’s a screen leaning
And something in my bed sheets, biting me.
I was destiny-ed
Where a darkness grew
A magnificent emptiness
If I only knew then what I thought I knew.


Ice in my old dog
Slipping through the stomach
Hanging out with acid
Melting into the lining of the long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long intestine.
