**numbered edition of 25 copies** The Tenses (Side Project of Smegma) are Ju Suk Reet Meate and Jackie Oblivia Stewart. The Tenses is a Title of a Story in the Book The Dream World of Dion McGregor from 1964. It is a unique Book in that the Stories are not “Written”, but Transcribed from Stories told while asleep! In 2008 we began a new Live Act using Musical Concepts developed with Smegma. The Tenses are a more intimate ”Live” Experiment that is greatly influenced by the Room / Audience “Feel”. Moving Images that reflect our Influences and creative Patterns are projected on or behind us. Our creative Intent is only one Aspect. We Attempt to collaborate in "The Moment”. The Tenses have performed successfully in Portland, Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, Cork, London, Brighton, Helsinki, Brussels, Paris , Geneva and others so far. The Tenses, using Concepts developed over forty years of organized and spontaneous Sound making, attempt a new Focus on “live Performance” in which the Room or Space has a major effect on the unfolding Sounds. Usually a Movie is also shown that may suggest Themes. If it all works there is Magic.
