17.Jan.2010 coachella 2010 wishlist
I suck at keeping up on whats new and current in music. Admittedly the two times (so far) i’ve been to Coachella I’ve passed on seeing bands and then end up getting into them after the fact; either it was fated or via the persistent influence of my friends. Anywho, I’m releasing my Coachella 2010 lineup wish list unto the world in hopes that it has some magical influence over the lineup this year:
Them Crooked Vultures
Bat for Lashes
I Love You but I’ve Chosen Darkness
Kill Memory Crash
What say you?
07.Jan.2010 introducing… vj ghostmeat
I make music to visuals in my head. Always have. I’ve thought doing so “professionally” (or at least with other people around to share my work and interpretations with, heh) would be pretty fun so I’ve been chipping away at it. I use to make visuals for PHX DNB but they were just looping dvd’s with pre-mixed video, many of which was my own creation (via after effects ect). Here is an example of what that looked like:
The theme of that party was “construction” and urban grit and the headliner was Goldie. The construction footage was taken by myself with assistance from MechSoul. Actually he did quite a few clips in this particular set so I cant take all the credit.
Anywho, that was some time ago, like 3 years. Last month I was invited to participate in a new night in Phoenix called Culture Shock and here is a video of the performers that night with visuals Mech and I made in the background:
There is a Culture Shock event going on this month: Friday January 22nd @ Yucca Tap Room. It will be my first LIVE vj attempt. I just purchased my first controller actually. And I’m in the afterglow of geekdom.
I felt like sharing
02.Jun.2008 echoes that spill from celestial spheres
music opens our hearts and surely ensnares
with echoes that spill from celestial spheres;
and faith far beyond the impaled cast of thought
turns ugly dissonance to honey by angels brought.
adam’s children turned and so coarsely tied
hear with him the angel’s songs and smiling sigh.
we remember them, even faintly, as yearning
heartbeats of the sweet soul’s original learning.
oh, music feeds the calling souls of lovers,
music raises the spirit from its earthly covers.
the ashes grow bolder and shed their fur
listen with stillness that only souls can share.
