hellllo. today colin and i are showing our installation, alchemy, in the new york city electroacoustic music festival. it is being shown from 10:30 - 7:30 in the elebash lobby of the cuny college graduate center, 356 5th ave between 34th and 35th street. if you are in the area please stop by and say hi! the entire installation has been revamped, rebuilt, broke, built again, broke again, changed back to its original form, and then changed anew. its been an experience. there is a mega-ton of other great performances, concerts, talks, papers, and installations for the festival, as well as a party saturday night at the tank so i recommend to most everyone to come and check it out at some point. oh also, almost all the performances are free. check nycemf.org for more details, and see our blog for some in progress images and banter.
There has been a lot going on in for all over the where. Sadly, there has been so much that we have not been able to keep up with the site. Many apologies. Here is a super quick run down: we have applied to Bent Fest 2009, got into the New York Electroacoustic Music Festival, were a part of NASA and helped throw a fantastic party in Newark where I did live visuals with Eric Drasin and Colin was an audio modulating astronaut, got onto a Tiger Claw Records compilation Do Not Bend 2, and lastly started a business experiment in alternative economies and methods of distribution for artists. Not to mention the continual finding/getting/losing/finding jobs, having lives, and general biting off more than we can chew. But by now I guess we have come to accept we just like to chew with our mouth open.
ps: also I still love indexhibit and all the hard work vaska and people put into it. I just think we like to change things about yearly and its bout time for a change. When we have time to do that however is a whole nother story. So for now get Indexhibit and let it make your website look goooood.

here's what's going down as of late:
reid and i contemplate getting rid of indexhibit: it is cool but lending itself to normality...
we are also working on a gallery show: nasa space camp - more later
i am going to start selling instruments on ebay. the first 'product line' will be designed for specially produced cigar boxes! each instrument/pedal will have a unique flavor.
a new section is going on the site to display said instruments/pedals under the name 'for sale' i hope i dont mess it all up...
added a random music video that was made recently. more music videos will be up shortly.
more changes/updates/happenings coming in august
and more updates all around...
sleep, however, is no where to be seen.
