Kim talks about her new found experience of being recognised by the public as Poet Laureate, often at the strangest moments; the good and the bad behavioural gains and losses of the countercultural movement, as well as the seductive nature of live performing.
I have always been a musician, a writer and composer with some music in film and documentaries. But I work mostly in film and multimedia. At a certain point – if doors are opening like they seem to with this project – you have to put your ego aside and listen to what people are feeding back to you. I hope ‘An Unusual Life’ is a result of that, of a kid watching and listening, but after that talking mostly about other people and their behaviour, not actually about myself much at all.
