blown away

…in which I try out the “Ultimate 545.” “Vintage” is an odd adjective, no longer just the year of a wine pressing, but the quality of an old thing, purported by age to be somehow valuable. This value inheres typically to things organic, be they edible or playable. Vintage musical instruments are much sought-after, and […]

filmredigering, Stockholm

…in which we work on our upcoming roadshow…from the road. Deadlines come in many forms, but the only ones that absorb my full attention these days seem to be performances. Since these are usually far away from the studio, readiness involves getting the media files done well in advance—or at least a bit ahead of […]

editsville in transit

…in which we toil over the inner harbor channel with mouse and camera. Transit is one act of our A LOT 2014 presentation the Floating Bridge of Dreams. It was initially envisioned as the opening act, and might still turn out to be…assuming we can overcome our fear of daylight. That’s because our 6:30 evening […]

posters, get yer wikiGong posters!

posters, get yer wikiGong posters!

…in which we prepare our usual media blitz. If Long Beach A LOT 2014 is anything like 2013, these aren’t really the final posters. Last year’s dates, venue, and lineup all changed and we couldn’t have predicted the outcome of an autumn equinox show by the end of July (this year, “October” starts in September, […]

…in which we up our roots. Summer 2014 is coming and, with it, the threat of fall—and another Long Beach performance opportunity. This year, it won’t be SoundWalk. FLOOD is taking a year off to contemplate a more grandiose reincarnation in 2015. But autumn beckons, even in late springtime. “The party season,” as some would […]

Elegy for Matt Mason (Script)

“Elegy for Matt Mason” was one of four pieces we prepared for the 2011 Long Beach SoundWalk, and the one in which I was most deeply involved. That is, it was a wordy piece, and the words were mine. (The lyrics? The libretto? “Script” will do.) The Matt Mason Idea As Dave and I anticipated […]

SoundWalk 2012: crowdsourcing the post-production

What people see and capture they sometimes post, some more quickly than others. Here’s a little compendium of links to Long Beach SoudWalk 2012 videos we’ve run across, almost all appearing within thirty days of the event. Our own post-production clean-up continues to lag behind. (Those pesky day gigs! You try washing them out….) We’re […]

looking forward to 9/1/2012 Long Beach SoundWalk

Recently arrived via email, words we optimistically look forward to, but don’t dare assume: This is official notification that you have been selected as a participant in SoundWalk 2012 to take place on the evening of September 1st (6PM-10PM). Now begins the effort to create/design/constrain, which we hope will culminate in an interesting and stimulating […]
