Ukulele Rendered

New track:

Wednesday, February 23, 2011


Revamped my electric cigar box ukulele to be an acoustic cigar box ukulele. Major improvement in sound. Still has a contact mic in it so it's still amplified.

Did some "Exquisite Corpse" exercises with some elementary students last night at East Handley Elementary School. Was quite fun to share some art and music with young students, hopefully, one will go on to become an artist.

Soundtrack for another sleepy day, 02.23.2011:

1) Herve Provini "Digital Music Landscape for Drum and Computer"
2) Arturas Bumsteinas "Eterniday News Vol. 1"

Have you ever sat back and thought about the reoccurring images, themes, and sounds that happen in your dreams? For some reason early this morning after I let my dogs out to do their "business" I did and here is what I came up with:

1) there is always some king, ruler, leader. For example, last night the ruler was John Fahey. How I knew this was because he had the crown over his head.

2) animals leading a revolution.

3) Phoenix. The mythological creature not the place.

4) Always silent except for background music.

5) Ants.

6) Usually there is either a person or animal wandering around reciting poetry, which I can only tell because there are speech bubbles over their heads.

7) Most times the locations have very few people. Even if it's in a location like a city I usually only notice one or two people.

Last week was lovely, aside from one day off due to ice. Got some interesting photos:

Went out and supported our tennis team and on Saturday went out to watch our baseball teams play during a scrimmage with Poly.

Sunday was quite peaceful. In the lower 70's, my wife, the "beasties", and myself spent the day outside. Read a lot in "The Tao of Wu" by RZA and watched several inspiring artsy movies like "The Cats of Mirikitani".

Got some work done in two altered books, on two paintings, and an orchestrated piece of music.

prickly sounds of ice
against the metal screens outside
here's to the crew.
