The making of Military Sea Life: Recruits!
…in which wikiGong dives once again into turbulent waters with phog masheeen for an artist-curated video sound event under the aegis of soundpedro2022.
Posting a little New Abalonia video
…in which we gild a recent lily…
Breath of Heaven is a meditation on air and water first shown June 4 at soundpedro2022 in southern California.
reimagining Matt Mason
…in which we revive classic themes. We’ll be reprising Elegy for Matt Mason—one of our earlier collaborative works—at this fall’s A LOT event in Long Beach, but without our full complement of personnel. That means redubbing the original video so there’s a violin track, and an excuse to embellish and tweak a bit. Cue one […]
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 […]
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 […]
the GGB turns seventy five
…in which history repeats itself…. Couldn’t let the day go by without noting the event, though thousands of others have marked it already. A few of my favorites: Golden Gate Bridge Opening May 27, 1937 Pedestrian Walk Golden Gate Bridge Under Construction Golden Gate Opus with the Marin Symphony The SF Chronicle’s take
an epic day
…in which we direct, and are directed. With only three weeks to go until SoundWalk 2011, my signature piece Where Is My Future needed a final content infusion. This weekend, Becky and I set out to gather the second video installment in preparation for production, and got more than we bargained for. I’ll try to […]
at last, a little fun
…in which we lose our YouTube virginity. Thanks, Robin! Let’s see if that works…. We’ve replaced the old video embed with a YouTube player and playlist. You’ll note the video had to be re-edited to get down to under-ten-minute segments, so there’s a break between the two sections that hopefully won’t be too annoying. Well, […]
a satori of sorts
…in which we realize it’s more complicated than that. OK, so this morning I tried out the site from the Beta PC platform (not the Alpha Mac) and got a surprise. The video link resulted—after about 25 minutes of downloading—in video. In a frame, on a new tab, playing like it should. QuickTime. Video. Huh. […]
…in which the video doesn’t work any more. Well, I’m not sure whether it’s me or file sizes or what, but now that we’ve got GGB Assay #2 published — yay! — the movie isn’t functioning — ack!. In fact, it’s been suggested by new visitors that it stopped working a couple of weeks ago. […]
