Ink on Dreams Of Transient Architecture BOOK+CD
About the Book: Drawing from a wide variety of experiences resulting from his frequent travels in and around the United States, musician, puppeteer and performance artist Patrick Elkins presents an engaging novel about public transportation and its relationship to impressions of air, friends and (most importantly) flying insects. About the CD: The CD which accompanies the book contains a collection of lo-fi pop gems written by Patrick Elkins (HOT MEAT FOR YOUNG LOVERS, CATCH A WAVE) and Arland Nicewander (KANDA) with musical help from Lorraine Lelis (MAHOGANY), Akina Kawauchi (KANDA), Aleise Barnett (CATCH A WAVE) and Scott and Elise Sonnier. About the Author: Patrick Elkins was born in Grand Rapids, MI in 1976. He attended Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo before moving to Ypsilanti to study creative and technical writing at Eastern Michigan University. A popular musician known for both the wild experimentation of his early solo albums as well as his knack for writing concise pop songs, Patrick's work has been informed by his experience playing in a widely diverse group of bands ranging from noise-folk legends Hot Meat for Young Lovers to the Sunshine Band, an old-time country outfit led by his grandparents. Recently, he has received attention for his humorous puppet shows and outrageous performance pieces. As a writer, his work has appeared in Display Magazine, Gravity Presses, The Independent Media Center, and the Ypsi Mix (the official newsletter of the Ypsilanti Food Cooperative). "Ink on Dreams of Transient Architecture" is his first novel.
