About Sejayno:

"Sejayno is Don Sallo, Jak Russel and Burt Duns. They will do any public speaking event, because they are trying to bring public speaking into time travel, usually to ancient times. In the time travel we use ancient electronic time travel techniques: flipped delay, maraca skip, and ultrasound speech rotation. On a winter tour of the west coast, we learned wavy wacky voice, and hippy fluttertalk. Also we were introduced to Dr. Gene Scott of LA, a master of public speaking. Sejayno is enacting a multi-year-long journey from electronic time travel techniques to those based on the lute. We strongly believe that as long as we truly imagine ourselves to be ancient people we will always be ancient people."

in 2011 Sejayno quit making opera.  Before that, we quit going on tour, in pursuit of something defined as "touring without moving", in protest of gasoline and gasoline culture in general.  We are going towards quitting making music altogether, although we still have "strong" tracks in our newest I95 release.  When we finally do quit making tracks, Sejayno will become purely a "blog band" where solos are like cocaine monologues; they are textual rants, on top of a bed of "video confessions" which are the rhythm and bass of our triad.  New material will come, of course, in the form of the "sales pitch" and how to do a most artful and sleek power point business presentation.

Dear People,

Sejayno is going on tour once again in this coming august.  We will have our own stereo sound system and soundman, Mario Diaz De Leon, who will also contribute solo sounds.  Our current instrumentation game plan goes thus: 
-Pete (Don Sallo) plays sidrassi organ stereo for electronic breath, and french horn for mellow normal sounds
-Carson (Burt Duns) is making an ambitious lute called the pneumasth which will have ill electronics within
-Seve (Jak Russel) will be doing the poetry and whatever else he brings from the Frisco Bay Area
There is also talk of a 5 geometry jazz beat...  So here are our tentative dates.  Some are set and others are completely open.  Please email me to help out with ideas and places.  Thanks
