Puppet Radio Station Transmitter

In college I was a DJ at their very small and simple radio station WLHU (Lock Haven State College). When I was 13, I got my first Ham Radio license. I still hold the FCC call sign KY6R, but I’m no longer active. Anyway, I’ve had a life long love of radio, even though the Internet has made it obsolete. This song started out…

Puppet Theatre Set Design

Once I have the 8 puppet controllers built, which will be by end of this week, I can start on building scenery and props. After that I can score music and start filming. I’m not sure if I will try stop motion, live action or a combination of both. I think before I decide, ill do a bunch of stills that explore lighting and…

Lumbering Melancholy

It took me a few days to write this song because I tried to write a slow song. That lead to a “lumbering” pace to the song, and the parts sounded almost like a dirge at first – until I spiced it up after the first half. I probably should have introduced the more upbeat ending sooner (that’s when the song gets a lot…

Play the Lap Steel Like a Fretless Bass

Lately I’ve learned to play several instruments in ways that are not typical. For example – the Lap Steel sounds a lot like a fretless bass, and a mandolin sounds like a piano.

Surreal Windows

Just a quick ditty for today . . .

Saved By The Bell

Today started out as a frustrating day at work – but in “The 11th Inning” I pulled a rabbit out of the hat – and I was saved by the bell. While I was tired – I still – and always do – have fun playing some music. Today I just wanted to play piano sounds and some synth sounds – with the usual…

erste Kunst für Kabarett 391

I hope to soon try my hand at stop animation – with the puppets – and then scoring music to their jittery and quirky dances. Once I get good at it – I’ve made these panels that fit into the frame at the top of the puppet theatre – and I will have the puppets rate and review the artwork. Stay tuned!

Frucht Einer Langen Erfahren

I’ve long been a fan of the Dada and Surrealist art movements – but especially Dada – where it was simple and “fresh”. While there was a manifesto – most artists were trying new things and were influenced by the Post WWI political world and rapid changes in technology. The Dada movement seemed to have a more viceral reaction – and was quite raw…

TELEPHONENRUF VON HANS ARP

Here is a fun little Dada joke . . . Korg and Beringer just released “reimagined” ARP 2600 clones, and this piece was recorded using Arturia’s V Collection 8 version of an ARP 2600. Arturia really rocks!
