American Memory Project


At some time in the very distant future, long after America is gone, a group of artists scouring the backwater of whatever it is the Net has become inadvertently encounter the American Memory Archives of the Library of Congress. Barely a ghost of its original form, all broken links and code that read like gibberish, it remains fascinating, a ruined temple in a forgotten jungle clearing. They manage to extract images, bits of text and sounds. Although they have no context for its meaning, they are intrigued by these strange antiquities. The group creates surreal impressions of the material they find and thy broadcast it back through time. A quantum radio channel beamed into the subconscious minds of the 21st Century, it is a gift of the past from the future to the present.

The American Memory Project will release a DVD EP in conjunction with the OHGR DTOUR, followed by a full-length Hi-Definition DVD in the spring of 2009.


In our time, the first decade of the 21st Century, members of the American Memory Project are film-maker/guitarist William Morrison and drummer/composer Justin Bennett. Morrison may well be best known for the films and videos that have accompanied the Skinny Puppy performances, though he has also played guitar with SP and will be playing with OHGR on DTOUR. Bennett will play with Ohgr as well, and has performed with Skinny Puppy, Professional Murder Music, Rozz Williams, Pigface, and numerous others. Together, they have been channeling AMP for two years.

American Memory Project (AMP) will offer a startling multi-media presentation mixing visuals and audio from the past, the future, and the present in real time on each date of the OHGR DTOUR of the US and Canada throughout November and December 2008.

The American Memory Project
"It is useful to remember that history is to the nation as memory is to the individual. As persons deprived of memory become disoriented and lost, not knowing where they have been and where they are going, so a nation denied a conception of the past will be disabled in dealing with its present and its future"
Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr.
The American Memory Project is a broadcast from the future. A digital archive of a long dead country unearthed in a distant era and broadcast back to our time. A short wave transmission bounced off the fabric of eros, washed up on the shores of the twenty first century. It is both abstract melancholy verse and a dire warning. A container filled with ghosts speaking stories so far removed from their origins that they refuse context. Or perhaps, invite it anew.
Memory is fleeting. Short term, long term. A collection of neurons, travelling at light speed, rendered in matter, always fading... morphing
We are animating ghosts...

hmmmm... just checked the calendar and I'm off the weekend of the Chicago show.  I could probably get the friday before and monday after, but no more than that, which would make for a tight schedule, especially driving back home.  still there's the cash flow issue at work... Confused

Boy I'd love it!  But I think its the weekend of thanksgiving and I'll be in jersey.  Won't be the first fucking show I'll miss, and certainly not the last.  So sucks so bad
