With titles such as "All That Heaven Will Allow," "Ribbon of Darkness," and "Why Have You Left That One You Left For Me," Berg's solo work and Glitter Chariot give a nod to Douglas Sirk films and the songs of Lou Reed, Crystal Gayle, Elton John and other combinations that spark connections about the intricacies of relationships and the dramas within them.
