Actor Vincent D’Onofrio streams new spoken word album – listen

'Slim Bone Head Volt' due for release on Tuesday

Vincent D’Onofrio, an actor best known for his roles as Private ‘Pyle’ in Stanley Kubric’s Full Metal Jacket and Detective Robert Goren on long-running TV series Law & Order: Criminal Intent, has unveiled his latest project: the spoken word LP ‘Slim Bone Head Volt’.

A collaboration with violinist and composer Dana Lyn, the album, according to the press release, captures “the inner workings of a man gone mad with his own majesty”. Officially released on Tuesday (March 3), ‘Slim Bone Head Volt’ is currently streaming via Soundcloud. Click below to listen.

The entire album – plus 13 tracks that didn’t make the final edit – were recorded in two five-hour sessions, with each song captured in a maximum of three takes.

“Slim Bone Head Volt is a code name for the strange juxtapositions, randomness, and incongruity in art,” said Lyn. “It is also actually an anagram for the exact opposite idea.”
