  • “Foregrounds” is a show exploring how we listen to sounds. It utilizes field recordings by blending songs and spoken word pieces with the soundscapes in which we listen to them – whether it be played along with Los Angeles traffic, the sound of a meal being prepared, or waves at the beach. Presented by DJ Derek (Corn), DJ Nasera (Alayon), DJ Max (Miles) of the Otis Radio class.

Eric Priestley, For Keeps

 

The story is broken off into bits and pieces until the only thing anybody ever remembers about the thing is that it did exist, that it posessed power and real magic. These secrets become a lost myth from the lips of Griots to the blood of warriors. And the physical thing one day becomes only a myth.

 

One of the original members of the Watts Writer’s workshop, Eric Priestley is the author of works of fiction, poetry, and non-fiction, among them the novel Raw Dog (1985), the poetry collection In Eagle’s Beak (1988), and the account of the 1965 Watts Riots Flame and Smoke (1974). He has also written several screenplays, including Amazing Grace, about the Neville Brothers. Priestley has taught literature at CSULA, CSUN, UCLA, UCSD, and Antioch, and is now teaching English at Xuchang university in China.
