Russell was born in Iowa, classically trained as a cellist, briefly lived in San Francisco and finally settled in New York, performing highly original works that ranged from avant-garde ambient to experimental disco. With Philip Glass, and archival footage of Allen Ginsberg and David Byrne. Rotten Tomatoes rating of 100%.
