It has been a while since I tapped words or shared goodies hereabouts. Apologies for the absence: time seems to have gotten away from me while getting my bearings following our transcontinental move last summer... not that it's been bewildering so as to stifle creative juices; the juices simply flow differently when one no longer lives and produces in relation to landscape, seasonal & temperature change, and so forth. Yup, SoCal kinda scrambles things when one is used to living in New England. And so, I've hatched a few new ears while adjusting to the beguiling lack of snow this winter. One particular outlet has been my new podcast, A Buford Whoso. It's still in the primordial-goo / loosey-goose format... freeform collage and sonic snippets caught here and there, plopped into the centrifuge, spun backwards a few times, and, voila! Have a listen.
Being out in here in these dusty lands has also reawakened my love for smushing annoying soundtracks on top of idiotic cinematic actions (or lack thereof). Results: here's a shorty, to be released later this year on VHS (which will be a shared split with Spreaders). In keeping with the spirit of the medium, I filmed with an ancient Quasar brand pre-camcorder-video camera for majority of the shots - that, or used it to rescan iPhone off the TV set to give it that grimy pixel-glorp. The entire process had me grinning like a cheeky twenty year old art student again. I love that these seemingly outdated technologies can still nudge their way into our digital boxes. Heh. Anyway...
Lastly, Alien Buddha Press is going to be publishing a book coming featuring collaborations with my pal, Marcel Herms. We're wrapping up the manuscript right now... hopefully we'll be able to share some links once the ink dries! Here's a peek.
