In the early 1970s, while still living in Buffalo, Julius Eastman began his long association with Petr Kotik's S.E.M. Ensemble. As a composer-performer with the ensemble, Eastman toured internationally. Femenine and Joy Boy, important transitional works, were performed frequently by the Ensemble, including at The Kitchen in 1975. The evening also includes a performance by poet Tracie Morris and electronic musician Hprizm
