Yin Tang 7.5 was a variation on Elements.
Put in the middle of a program with La Pocha Nostra before and James Luna after my performance, I choose to concentrate on just that: being in the middle of opposites.
I placed two bowls on stools, the one to the right with white powder, the one to the left with a syrupy liquid.
First I showed my left hand with the black glove that I borrowed of La Pocha's Guillermo Gomez Pena.
Left handed I drew a line with charcoal over my head towards my mouth, then prepared the saxophone mouthpiece and put that on a water hose.
First squeezing whatever dark sounds and overtones with circular breathing I went to the bowl with the powder and created a cloud of dust.
Then to the bowl with liquid where I created a bunch of bubbles.
I then went back to the bowl with powder, took a handful with my right hand and threw that on the bowl with bubbles, thereby killing the bubbles instantly.
I finished with showing my white hand to the audience.
