Greenberger, David and Prime Lens, My Thoughts Approximately

My Thoughts Approximately draws on four decades of conversations David Greenberger has had with elderly in various cities and circumstances, which are the starting point for the thirty emotionally, rich, character driven monologues. The recording sessions begin with musical ideas from the ensemble. Greenberger matches his text to the composition, allowing it to develop in the studio. Greenberger is best known for 32 years of his periodical, The Duplex Planet, which was borne out of his conversations with residents at a nursing home in Boston beginning in 1979. Over time monologues + music evolved, the elements working in tandem to form what he refers to as “a band with a guy talking.”
