I've uploaded a new studio piece entitled Changes #1 to my You Tube
site. It can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qpD9vs7ijE
The first 3 videos in the changes sequence will be on exhibit at a
lovely art's show in Monson MA (West of Sturbridge). I've been
exhibiting at this show almost every year, and it just keeps getting
better. This year's theme is "Black & White & Everything In Between"
The opening is Saturday from 2 - 4 PM. It's worth the trip!
Here is a description of the piece on You Tube.
Changes #1 reverses my usual live improvisatory process. I was asked
to perform at an on line media event called The Virtual Sound and
Video Festival. I didn't want to limit myself to web-cam quality, so,
instead of improvising live, I composed a piece that was like my
visual improvs, but without the rapid fire cutting I do live.
I decided to use a lot of different thematic material, and to try to
combine themes in different combinations. This was a different way of
working for me and I enjoyed the challenge. Most of my studio pieces
are focused on a single theme, while my live pieces are
improvisations in which I usually choose material on the spur of the
I created a 25 minute piece called "Changes" that was used in the
festival. I gave this piece to guitarist Mike Marando, who improvised
a soundtrack. I used the first 10 minutes, and edited my original
video in response to his music.
