CLEARED FOR APPROACH, CLEARED FOR LANDING
poems by Ann Darr
Cleared for Approach, Cleared for Landing is a cycle of poems by Ann Darr (1978, Dryad Press), composed in the aftermath of TWA 514's crash into Weather Mountain, December 1, 1974, which she had witnessed from her Shenandoah Valley farmhouse; Weather Mountain was the secret location for the US government in the event of nuclear attack.
The setting is a monodrama, provisionally with video (in progress). The vocal part on the recording is realized with soprano recorder, accompanied by piano and Ann Darr's 1976 WBAI reading of Cleared For Approach, Cleared For Landing.
