What I’m doing in Switzerland

I was invited to Geneva for a month to compose music for and perform in a piece called “Angels” by Cosima Weiter and Alexandre Simon. The piece was made up of video projections from interviews the pair had conducted in L.A. with immigrants. The transcripts of their experiences were then performed by Swiss actor Pierre Isaia Duc.

Geneva on an island in the middle of the Rhone, just down from where it issues forth from Lac Lamon.

Blaine L. Reininger was born July 10, 1953 in Pueblo, Colorado. Then he lived a life. By and by, he founded Tuxedomoon with Steven Brown in 1977. He traipsed around America, tuxedomooning until 1980, when he began to traipse around Europe. As a direct result of all of this traipsing, many musical compositions were composed, most of which found their way to some sort of mechanical device capable of reproducing musical compositions. This was mostly for the good. He now lives in Athens, Greece, where he is content.
