My first Kickstarter Campaign, for my first art installation at the Brattleboro Art Museum, “Transmuting the Prosaic”, is nearing completion! It’s going well, but if it really goes, it will have a profound effect upon my future work. I have an agent working to get this installation to other art museums/venues.
There are two elements to the installation:
1. My film Davis Square Symphony;
2. Five of my “Modified Vinyl” conceptual records.
Then I will be artist in residence for three nights:
1. Artist talk;
2. new music for solo electric guitar;
3. music for string quartet (and turntables!).
To make sure this happens, this is my first Kickstarter campaign. There is a video of me explaining what the installation is, and why I’m starting the Kickstarter. And of course, a slew of interesting “Rewards” for your contribution.
Please share this if you can! I am counting on this Kickstarter succeeding to create the artwork.
And here is a link to a very short video where I example how I have altered a lap-steel guitar to become a portable prepared piano:
