one studio, shaken, not stirred

…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 […]

the last SoundWalk

Well, there we were…as always, right where we weren’t supposed to be…at SoundWalk 2013 in Long Beach. Back near our starting point, actually, over on 3rd Street between Elm Ave. and Long Beach Blvd. For three of the last four years we’ve been within a few doorways of the same spot. Igor Amokian was out […]

that time of year again

…in which we apply for the tenth and final Long Beach SoundWalk…. As of today, we’ve only sent in our proposal, along with this image based on Jacob’s photo. Our inspiration is to get back to wikiGong’s primary mission and present something at SoundWalk 2013 once again involving field recordings of massive infrastructure. The result […]

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 […]

…in which we note 304 trackback spams since August 29…. OK, once in a great while we still get to travel on business and then end up in the hotel checking email and the state of the web site on a Friday night because that’s just how it is. And the spam keeps on coming! […]

Morning after SoundWalk, with John Cage: Hair of the Dog

Posted by on Sep 2, 2012 in blog, history, performance | No Comments

Yes, wikiGong performed at the 2012 Long Beach SoundWalk Saturday night, about which more later. It was a success, at least to the extent that we (well, mostly Dave, really) got set up in good time, and performed the pieces we’d planned on, more or less on schedule. Friends, family members, and strangers came and […]
