CrazyFace

CrazyFace (2012) 2-channel audio

The piece is inspired by a strange series of reports involving people mysteriously losing consciousness during August 29-October 31,1971 in Stillwater, Oklahoma. In each of these incidents, the victim described seeing a tall figure with bandages or some type of cloth mask concealing the face. According to reports the bandaged man, who has acquired the nickname CrazyFace, never spoke or made physical contact with any of the victims. There appears to be no connection between these incidents other than the alleged appearance of the bandaged man, which in all accounts is described as the last thing seen before losing consciousness. There has never been any official explanation of the cause of these incidents.
