SEPTEMBER 2012 at the SALON



DEPOT (wherein resides the UNDEAD of Franz Kamin)
presented by tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE

"DEPOT (wherein resides the UNDEAD of Franz Kamin)" 
is a three hour, forty minute documentary about the life 
and work of composer, writer, performer, pianist Franz Kamin 
made by the prolific independent film & video maker who calls 
himself "tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE".  

Kamin (1941-2010) studied piano in Oklahoma & in Indiana 
in the 1960s.  Along with James "Sarmad" Brody & others, Kamin 
founded an avant-garde performance series in Bloomington 
that moved on to New York City & to Barrytown, NY. Despite a
fantastically large & substantial body of work, Kamin 
remained largely unknown, except to specialists in the esoteric.

Documentarian "tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE" is uniquely qualified 
to create this work in Kamin's honor because he too has been 
nurtured by avant-garde culture & is a composer, writer, 
performer, musician, AND moviemaker who's written a (so far unpublished) 
book about mathematics.  

cONVENIENCE knew of Kamin's work since 1974 & became 
friends with Kamin by 1977 - as well as performing in his pieces in 
1992 & 1993.  He & Kamin stayed in touch until shortly before Kamin's death.
