This fall I finished two more Dream Interpretations, #19 and #20, and am doing my best to learn these complex compositions (the foot dance vs. the reading vs. the still rocking despite all that). I am hoping to record an album in 2021. Here is the link to October’s virtual concert in association with my installation Transmuting the Prosaic:
My first art installation has been sold. The Modified Vinyl are each created one at a time and numbered, and every cover for “POP Record/evolving” is created by hand. I am hoping to get the installation (with newly minted Modified Vinyl) somewhere else in the nearish future. If anyone has any suggestions where it might go next, please drop me a line! In the meantime, I am planning to work on a new Modified Vinyl piece: “A/V/A” (Audio/Visual/Audio). For this piece, I create geometric patterns on the record with extremely short audio blips. Create a visual pattern with the audio, then play that visual record and listen to the audio used. A/V/A.
I am working on another string quartet to improve the concert series that was slated to happen March/April 2020 but clearly did not. I am hoping these concerts – I.C.A. Boston; MassMoCA; Warhol Museum; Rhizome DC – will happen as soon as they can. 2021… 2022? Who knows… They will incorporate my music for string quartet and my Dream Interpretation guitar performance.
Available are Transmuting the Prosaic T-shirts; The Signals Calls and Marches lyric sheet update; Out of print records, In print records and more. Please visit!
We throve from 1969-1971, but still have life! Here is guitarist Benjamin Miller’s grand-daughter Francesca manifesting an overt enthusiasm for the band. And the interview we did on WCBN in Ann Arbor in 2013 has been posted again. It’s quite a fun trip.
And the Months keep Coming Around…
I weigh 10 pounds less than I usually do at this time of year because I’m no longer endlessly sitting in a van, sitting in a theater, sitting at an airport or on a plane, sitting sitting sitting… Eating out every day, the only exercise from performing. It’s definitely more healthy not to tour…
Too many lives were lost this year, people I knew and have loved. Was it because of Covid? Likely only indirectly, but it certainly didn’t help. Dark times. I consider myself lucky to be with someone I love and also really get along with. I am sorry for those who are seriously isolated in these Covid-Times. Hopefully there is a light at the end of the tunnel. May 2021 be a better year.
