New Video Works – February 2014

Just completed two new videos associated with my first semester at Vermont College of Fine Arts Masters program. This term had the pleasure of working with John Mallia on the new Piano Trio, which will be posted eventually, and these two works created in the last Month.

Utilizes 6 de-constructed public domain videos, that I edited and combined with electronics and trumpet. It was presented on Feb 9th at the VCFA Electronics night.

This is the draft of a Mixed Media piece for Harry Partch Instruments and a Brass Quintet. I de-constructed a public domain 1952 news reel footage of a Harry Partch performance at Mills College, and mixed in some Partch Instruments from the American Mavericks web site, with a new Brass Quintet. Right now the Brass Quintet is Midi.

This piece is designed to be performed live, with the video projected behind the Brass Quintet Performance. At some point will record a live quintet, but will wait until I have another piece for quintet before finishing this.
