“The Heavyweight Sound Fight”, a double LP documenting the remarkable, never before released 1981 performance of a work / happening created by the artists Charlie Morrow, Sten Hanson and Carles Santos. It was staged and produced in New York, at Gleason’s Gym – one of the most famous boxing gyms in the United States – by Morrow and Hanson, and co-written with Santos. A lampoon of a boxing match – with all pomp and bluster – the action pitches Morrow and Santos against each other, backed by two bands – Soho Baroque Opera Company with the assistance of the New Wilderness Foundation – with Hanson serving as referee, Amrand Schwerner acting as the announcer, and none other than Simone Forti displaying the round cards.”
