The Ululating Mummies
|The Mummies began in a kitchen. . . . A world where kitchens are the seats of power and culture in the "Earth House Hold" (Gary Snyder). Kitchens filled with talking, eating and drinking, the counsel of friends, the noise of children, refrigerator art, shrines, political conspirings and wild imaginings. Above Wall Street. . . the kitchen table ascends.|
|And on the table a bowl, the supreme tool, a vessel where stuff is mixed and frothed. . . . The kitchen itself a vessel enshrining many vessels. As Sun Ra taught us, "space is the place." So we learned from the bowl and the kitchen and Sun Ra and created a band that made space for the music to come up through.. . . ."|
|"Pippin in his split-toed Japanese fisherman footwear and mylar fringed coat, Danny's papier-mache robe. . . psychedelic shriners."|
Meanwhile back in the kitchen... I asked a yound friend how he would describe the Mummies. He sat silently for a few moments, unusual for a five-year-old. As if hearing the music, his fingers began to wiggle and his hands to dance one around the other.
We made dinner.
From My Kitchen,
"We had to make noise...
We had to ululate."
