Singer-songwriter Alanna Lin (a.k.a. Fascinoma) wrote a lovely song inspired by The Streetwise Cycle and performed it live at the party.

From The Streetwise Cycle song: 
   
   Ain't got gasoline to start your car 
   Pure man power drives your shopping cart 
   No cash money but you got your heart 
   Streetwise, sleep tight 
   Your policy is right 

   No one wants you 
   To know their name 
   Cuz you might be the only one they blame 
   Give away anything you got to eat 
   Streetwise, sweet life    
   Now you may go in peace
 
 
Composer Bruce Bennett is currently working on a piece of music to accompany The Streetwise Cycle. I'm delighted that I'll be able to use a piece of his music at the party to accompany moving images and text associated with the book. 

Bruce is an active performer of improvised music, and as a composer, his works have been played by a wide range of groups and artists, including the Arditti String Quartet, the Avenue Winds, the Berkeley Symphony, Del Sol String Quartet, Earplay, Tom Dambly and Michael Zbyszynski.
