Drew this during my stay in Creuse, France. I was there with Distractfold and I filmed the Le Bruit de Musique Festival hosted by Lê Quan Ninh.

I was re-reading Valis and learning about the stages of decay

At night, a tiny slug sat atop–and was illuminated by–the vast expanse of my iphone’s display…it all said everything’s going to be ok.

I was sitting outside in May and saw –just as so many people must have thought before me–that if you spend some time looking into these things that are growing that you could find deep whirlpools for your interest (the geometry of growth, the why of this or that, etc) if you wanted that, or you could just sit and more passively have an experience. Either way you could never touch bottom. Lately, when I feel myself getting pulled such a little–really, unassuming–whirlpool, I’m trying to make it a point to draw that thing that acts like a nexus, and follow it in.  Though I don’t think there is anything more authentic than interfacing with its face. It is the face of reality, infinitely authentic at every level. And also not drawing it for the sake of the depiction, but as a method to spend time out there with it.  Out there….within….I want that contour to dissolve.

Then I made a print so I could share something of it with other people. It’s a separate idea maybe, but coming from the same place. It’s like I’m pointing to the same thing the nexus opened to. Not restricted by location…a non-local…node…connection…. (And now this idea disintegrating into my own uncongealed thinking/feeling about it.)

This post is that too.

M62

Friend, Mauricio Pauly invited me to make this documentary of a project he was a part of with two other composers and two performers. This experiment in collaboration shows the early stages of the process that would eventually birth three new contemporary music works.


Here is the post I made November 23, 2013 for the teaser…
Here’s the teaser for a video I’m making that documents the interaction between three composers and two performers in a sort of experiment in collaboration.

Dialogue

I made these a year ago but I wasn’t ready to let anyone see them. I worked on these everyday for a while then. They’re a dialogue I was trying to open up to. Between me and me…or the universe and the universe. They are both, and they are silly.  They’re little drawings, because as it turns out the universe is ridiculous sometimes.

Videos for Silence Blossoms

Silence Blossoms is one of my favorite bands, and they’ve made me their fourth member! Here are some vids I’ve made for them. I’ll update this post as and when a new video is made, with the most recent appearing first.

April 26, 2014 – Dancer, with a guest appearance from Rodrigo Constanzo performed at John Rylands Library in Manchester.

and Sonnet, also performed at John Rylands Library with Rod.

September 30, 2013 – Silence Blossoms makes my heart swell. I tried to make a video that could be 1/10th as good as the music they make. Behold their first single, Lady White, off their new album.

Silence Blossoms in the Studio. I’m putting together a short video that will include footage from one of the recording sessions for the new album.
This teaser is the first time I use After Effects.
