In between sets during the set-up is where i heard a young lady proclaiming to her friend... "I'm NOT really into the NOISE SCENE." I wanted to laugh out loud as i THOUGHT... "WHO REALLY IS?" Maybe she's onto something. Just the night before after the four sets at Piano Factory, I kept saying, "LET'S FACE, IT'S ALL WANKERY" as others were debating whether each act was good or not. Then right after next noise basement solo set ended i found myself proclaiming, "GLAD I BROUGHT MY EARPLUGS" or something. I guess i dig IMAGINATION in any of the ARTS, but as "noise" becomes the norm (well sorta) the clone factor makes it as doomed into the rut formula in ALMOST (?) killed rock, jazz, hip hop, etc.
BACK TO THE NOISE SHOW...
Not sure of the order, but the ON TOUR trio of solo acts (EARTH CROWN & SECRET ABUSE & ZOMGRUL OCTI) each layed down some sweet noise sets. I missed opener ANIMAL STEEL (Ted of 2DSOGF) since i was still at the fcp video workshop. Chatted with JOEY, NATHAN, DJ NINGNONG, RYAN (of Dreamhouse) and a few others and blasted back to the studio where I am now sorting a couple pix.
REWIND: Earlier in the evening....
I went to Boston Final Cut Pro User Group (BOSFCPUG) with Oliver Peters presenting a Final Cut Pro case study of the upcoming HBO Documentary "Blindsided" and Robert Caldeira with FireStore FS-5 tapeless FCP workflow. I always learn a few tricks and meet some kool apple luving video editors. Plus they have mountains of my favorite drink (Poland Springs Water) and tonight free pizza. Sorry NO PIX of the PIZZA as i was blasting out early to make it just in time to see JOEY at basement noise gig.
The industrial ceiling art of the workshop venue needed to be snapped. And how can you have a personal blog about ME without another BTM shot?
So that was part of the FIFTH DAY in my five day weekend, that is being extended into a SIX day weekend. Since THURSDAY NIGHT i gotta check out "BOSTON PSYCHEDELIC CINEMA REVISITED" .... more on that in next blogged out post.
One thing is for sure, i will NOT keep up this pace of photoging and recording sessions and BLOGGING. I will probably hibernate for the winter and NOT cut new trax. I hope to mostly EDIT my existing VIDEO for my super duper BTM DVD.
