Chronogram last featured the doings of Capital Region resident and spoken word performer David Greenberger in with a January 2018 review of his album with the band Prime Lens. In addition to recently releasing another album with Prime Lens, It Happened to Me, Greenberger is now the subject of a documentary titled Beyond the Duplex Planet, which is currently up for funding via Kickstarter.

In 1979, Greenberger took a job as the activities director at a Boston nursing home. Picking up on the elderly residents’ beautifully quaint insights in his talks with them, he began chronicling their conversations and publishing in The Duplex Planet, a zine he published for 187 issues. The Duplex Planet gained a devout cult following and led to Greenberger doing live and recorded readings of excerpts from his nursing-home resident interviews in collaborations with members of R.E.M., Los Lobos, NRBQ, the Blasters, and others. Beyond the Duplex Planet is being produced by filmmaker Beth Harrington.

Here’s a pithy sampling from It Happened to Me:
