AMODA posted more details about the show, which I thought I’d share. I’ve been listening to the laptop battle contestants’ tracks on their MySpaces — not done yet but I would already recommend The Mysterious H (chiptunes!) and Uber Dub by Blixaboy. Have a look/listen!
Just got back from a lovely vacation in Fort Worth, TX, Eugene and Portland, OR. Emily’s cousin Sarah got married in Fort Worth, hence the new suit! Beautiful wedding, wonderful people. Eugene: wonderful family, beautiful country, good times. Portland: good hotel, beautiful city, wonderful company. 🙂 Inching myself back into work mode now like a hot tub. Or maybe a cold shower. :X
Beautiful new site design by Mary Ann! It’s been in seekrit development for some time now. Thanks for putting it up, MA. 🙂
Tomorrow morning bright and early i’ll be heading off to Owego, NY, for a 5 day residency at the Experimental Television Center. I’ll get back Sunday night, probably. Wish me luck and/or productivity. 🙂
I am pleased to announce that I will be playing AMODA’s Digital Showcase #43 on March 8th. The list of audio and visual performers is long and hot. If you’re going to be in town for SXSW or other reasons, I hope you can make it. I’ll be debuting fresh HD footage and running things with VDMX for the first time (and reviving my long dormant Quartz Composer skills to up the ante).
Last night Emily and I got back from three days in Bremen, Germany, where I was invited to perform at the MENSCHMEERMEDIEN (man, mirror, medium) festival at the Nordwolle fin-de-siecle wool mill. We had a wonderful time and wonderful hosts. Thanks for the invite, Martin! The whole experience went something like:
Monday: Receive invitation via Share discussion list. Accept.
Tuesday: Martin tries to book ticket.
Wednesday: ticket falls through. Dan books incredibly cheap ticket on Emirates.
Wednesday afternoon: Emily decides to come and books incredibly cheap ticket on Emirates.
Thursday: leave for Hamburg.
Friday: arrive in Bremen. Eat bratwurst and tour the city with alternate historians.
Saturday: perform at massive old Victorian factory. Eat bratwurst. Party all night with splendid Germans.
Sunday morning: conclude party with Turkish/Sri Lankan falafel.
Sunday: act like tourists. Bratwurst. Completely fail to throw up out of one’s nostrils (note: this did not happen).
Monday: return to New York. No bratwurst. 🙁
