Okay, so I wanted to make an entry with some video stuff in it rather than it just being about me like it normally is….
Here’s a Sun Ra documentary from the BBC. It’s at least as much about him as artistic figure as a musician which I always find interesting. I know that a lot of people are fascinated with him because of him being a freaky quasi-celebrity, but I think his music has actually been somewhat dismissed as less groundbreaking, important, & just good than it is for all of that.
Here’s a video of me & Peter Aldrich doing a little unpracticed jam together back in 2002 at a party for WNCW’s ARC Overnight. I’m not sure it’s “good,” but it’s interesting to have a document from this long ago.
Here’s a documentary about noise music in Portland. It kinda makes me want to see nearly identical documentaries about all the area code noise scenes. Maybe I’ll get on that at some point….
