Recently we hosted a get together of all kinds of artists to create a project that would showcase various art forms and professions. From musicians, painters, sculptors, makeup artist, carpenters, and even auto mechanics showed up to take part in this historical event.
What I saw was an amazing collaboration. We basically shot a rock opera that followed the loose storyline of a young girl who went though all odds to protect her father from being framed as a thief. It was very dramatic and the soundtrack was amazing. The way in which it was produced was also quite incredible, think of a Frank Zappa style orchestra following the scenes of the actors and spontaneously coming up with the composition on the spot. Talk about intense.
I can only say that I was very inspired. Thank to all who came out yesterday.
This is going to be a quick post, but I was invited to go on a wine tasting tour the other week, and I wanted to write something about how all the senses combined create an experience. So this wine tasting thing was a really fancy & posh event where you had to dress up nicely and cheep your chin up. I’m usually not into this kind of thing, but because I was invited and I didn’t want to turn it down, I agreed.
There was actually a chauffeur who rolled up in a shiny stretch limo in front of my house. It was even decorated with flowers and looked like a wedding limo ready to let a bride out in front of a big church. I stepped in and smelt that familiar new car smell. The cool air freshened my body from the humid outside air, and the dim lighting caused me to feel relaxed and at ease. I was the first one to get picked up so I got to pick the best seat in the car, which was all the way in the corner behind the drivers’ seat. Their was lighting on the ceiling which changed colors and patterns depending on the beat of the music. It was very seductive and celestial, which actually didn’t seem to match for a wine tasting, but I was impressed nonetheless.
We drove all the way to San Fransisco and stopped by about 3-4 wine tasting places where we got tours of vineyards and wine cellars. Even though I’m not really into wine, the fact that we got to drive in an awesome car and stop by all these nice places was well worth it.
Welcome everyone to my first post in the creation of this blog. It’s a very exciting time for me, and I’m anticipating the many ideas and discussions that will be propagated here. This blog is dedication to my obsession with the ideas and concepts of sound, as well as a place for me to grow within myself and with other who share similar ideas.
I plan to question the unquestionable and delve and search for answers that cannot be answered. Sound impossible? Queue the cliche phrase, “Nothing is impossible.” Or, what one very short but powerful person once said, “Impossible is a word only to be found in a fools dictionary.” – Napoleon
