Did you know that writer Herb Reichert is an artist? Some of the people that fascinate me most are people who write and make art. The list isn’t very long and includes Henri Michaux and Antonin Artaud up top in terms of influence. Seeing as I’ve been reading Herb’s writing for decades and I’m getting to know his art work the more I see it, Herb is also on that list.

Here’s a wonderful video of Herb talking about and doing his work filmed by Jana Dagdagan with her usual eye for story. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.


Something else you may not be aware of is that Twittering Machines used to be a blog many years ago. At that time, I had the pleasure of publishing this story of Herb’s wherein he talks about growing up with music. Enjoy!
