On our lush and intricately constructed world of oak, seaweed, wool, perfume, and plaster of paris, we follow the story of a hockey goaltender who, in 1959, finally got tired of the brutality of his position. He invented the first hockey mask and wore it onto the ice. It would be fourteen years before wearing a hockey mask was anything more than a personal choice. We ask you to become our allies, to remember a time when we could run as fast as horses, when our powers of memorization were uncanny, and when we could take photographs with our eyes.
PRAISE FOR JORDAN O’ JORDAN:
“Informed by preoccupations as diverse as electricity, science, a capella singin’, showtunes and folk songs, he has crafted a patchwork quilt of the scientific and the sublime.” –Megan Beardsley, listenbeforeyoubuy.com
“Simple coincidence or cosmic cycle reaffirming all my life choices? Jordan’s music is enough to make me think the latter.” –Elisa Hough, Adventures in Audio
PRAISE FOR THE MISSOULA OBLONGATA:
“The romance of vaudeville, the adrenaline of punk, and the
playfulness of the Children’s Television Workshop…packing the house with theatre buffs as well as with those who tend to fidget in velve seats.” –St. Louis Magazine
“Gorgeous, poetic, funny, moving…I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like it.” –The Urbana News-Gazette
