The Zapatista rebels are famed for wearing ski masks. The masks hide identities but also symbolize the unimportance of the individual in comparison to the community. // Ginger Thompson/The New York Times
Dizzy Gilespie, Melvin B. Tolson & Subcommander Marcos
“Symphony In Manteca” (Cold Duck poetic mash-up)
Another “poetic mash-up” of mine, this one uses the Funky Lowlives remix of “Manteca” by Dizzy Gilespie as a bed for a vocal mash-up. I overdub Melvin B. Tolson reading his “Dark Symphony” along with portions of a radio address by Zapatista leader Subcommander Marcos.
