LBSW 2012 Punch List

Our task list for the final three days. Jacob and Dave are in Long Beach as of Tuesday evening, August 28. Rebecca joins us Friday evening, August 31.

Panic ensues....

[edit] To do (refreshed September 17 10:48)

  • Find more percussion instruments [Dave and Jacob]
    • Non-critical. This is to be done if convenient and if there's time
  • Recover [Ensemble]

[edit] Done!

  • Perform [Ensemble]
  • Load in [Ensemble]
  • Register [Ensemble]
  • Repack the cars [Ensemble]
  • Get Elegy for Matt Mason piece out of the mothballs [Dave and Jacob]
    • What to do about the audio? Just replay it? Yes
    • We have Ellen's cellular capture (also on Vimeo)
  • Decide what to do with SoNoGram [Ensemble]
    • We could play it right off the Mac or transfer to DVD
    • But should we re-perform or just play it? Just play it
  • Finish the entr' acte iPod soundtrack [Dave]
  • Assemble video for Looking_Backward [Dave]
  • Prepare stills for Looking_Backward [Jacob]
  • Arrive safely in Long Beach [Rebecca]
  • Convert and post stills to Flickr
    • We haven't discussed why batch upload to Flickr matters prior to performance....
    • Dave's stills will be posted separately to gongmaster's stream....
  • Get on the plane [Rebecca]
  • Pick up stills from CostCo
  • Assemble video for Oracle_du_Jour [Dave]
  • Provide SoundWalk website statement [Ensemble]
    • Long:
      • In "Looking Backward," wikiGong considers LA's Bradbury Building as a lonely fragment, stranded by the deliquescence of the American Progressive Movement. Reminded that history is written by the victors, wikiGong embraces the new order and kneels at the altar of spam with "Oracle du Jour." wikiGong is Elegiac, Incommunicado, and Disaffected.
    • Short:
      • In "Looking Backward," wikiGong considers the deliquescence of the American Progressive Movement, then kneels at the altar of spam with "Oracle du Jour."
  • Get SoNoGram out of the mothballs [Dave]
    • Actually, it's all been burned before
    • That's what's on Vimeo
    • The files have now been heaved back into the light....
  • Finish the program [2012-08-29—Dave]
  • Bradbury building assay #3 [2012-08-29—Dave and Jacob]
    • Dave and Jacob will take another pass through the structure
      • Dave's first encounter, actually (Wow!)
    • The goal is to capture moving images for backdrops to the stills—especially Jacob's great B&W images—we plan to use in Looking_Backward
    • Two video cameras
    • Digital and classic SLRs
      • SLRs means dropping film off at CostCo
    • The Sony PCM-D50
      • Just in case the elevators are sonically interesting (Nope. Silent, modern hydraulics....)
      • How close can one get to that thin cast iron? (You can touch it, but in plain view of the guards. Permission to affix the Schertler seemed like a probable waste of precious time.)
  • Drop off film at CostCo [2012-08-29—Jacob]
    • Five rolls, and on Wednesday evening: plenty of time to get the prints back.
