WORDS

This the more thorough post about the album announced in the previous post- Finally an album words by Tyler Boley the above at the “Words” Bandcamp page, where you can stream as above or download audio files of various optional resolutions and formats. If you prefer youtube, here is the playlist link, which opens with a […]

Finally an album

David Nielsen and I were in bands together long ago, with all the associated R&R experiences, for five years or so. We connected again around 2015, jammed a few times, our abilities very rusty, and started a few songs that faded off to nowhere. Finally we knuckled down and completed “Catherine” in 2018, despite novice […]

new music- Fathom

Perhaps a bit psychedelic, a bit symphonic, a bit rock, another instrumental, this longer longer and a bit more of a journey. Headphones help, and few distractions. It may take a few listens, or none, don’t force it please. Rather than wear my influences on my sleeve, with this one I’m shamelessly projecting them on […]

Old Tech…

… or so it may seem. No longer supported, is probably a better description. There are, no doubt, long time individual niche workers all over the world, in any field, limping older technology tools along in some shop. But there are also more advanced leading edge efforts in a variety of fields keeping old systems […]

new music- Gone

    *better mix linked above 1/18/22* Another short and sweet instrumental, some sort of punk/prog bastard? David again giving up an over-the-top drum track. This one is probably for turning up and flinging yourself around the room completely out of control, it’s quick, so harmless. More musics still to come. Here’s a bit OCD […]

new music- Panhead

To break through a long writing block, I decided to write something quickly, with less testing the limits of my abilities and knowledge, hopefully fun. This is the result, pretty much a hard rock three piece instrumental (of course), with 808 inspired bass, fairly short. Unfortunately the actual production of the recorded piece took much […]

Landscape

This is the same as the youtube description, in case you just watch it here. Among other concerns, the landscape has always had a significant presence in my work. This is a selection from over 30 years of photography with a “sense of place” overriding other concerns. There is some crossover between this and “A […]

About the Montages

Three photomontages. I made #1 on an OCD whim in 2017. I tried many other combinations of elements and overall compositions, based on a somewhat instinctual approach illuminated by Jerry Uelesmann at a workshop years ago. Going through decades of images for potential elements to combine, from phone images to large format film scans, was […]

I write about process not because it’s the most important thing about the work, but because solving these problems and finding approaches that suit the work often becomes the most time and effort consuming, it may help other workers solve similar problems, and for interested non practitioners, what goes into this work might be illuminating.
