NEWSLETTER #6, August 5th, 2022
to Wayne Grim Industries. We’ve been away. It’s been a minute. A few things have happened since 2020.
Let’s not talk about those things.
‘The Unconsciousness of the Landscape Becomes Complete’
August 5, 2022
What started as a decade long idea of making a ‘solo guitar’ recording ended up being something very different. This album is built on Field recordings and born from the idea that abandoned buildings, forests or Pachinko parlors are equally beautiful and compelling sound stages. The result is the sound of life in Oakland, Denpasar, Tokyo, Hilo, Gulf Shores, and Detroit mixed with guitar improvisations. Most of the pieces on this album were inspired by the 1923 Graphic-collage novel by Max Ernst, ‘The Hundred Headless Woman’.
September 22, 2022, 8pm, Video Conduction by Phoebe Tooke with Suki O’Kane, WG and several very special guests! Stay tuned for important details.
‘Electric Space Gardeners’
A Multimedia Opera in eight scenes.
Releases September, 2022
‘The Electric Space Gardeners takes to the stage in the form of a multi-media sci-fi space opera. Positioned somewhere between the non-linear tradition of the Theatre absurd, Fantastic Planet, Frankenstein, Hair and the stylizations of The Triadic Ballet gone psychedelic. The Electric Space Gardeners stage production charts the tale and explorations of the ESG as they cultivate their programmable plant specimens located within the framework of their virtual gardens. Through costume, interactive set elements, projections, choreography, sound and score the audio and visual style of the performance collides and combine the contrasts of analog & digital sensibilities throughout a series of vignettes performed by the ESG as the characters come to discover themselves for who they truly are, a genetically engineered hybrid species composed as 1/3 Human – 1/3 Plant & 1/3 Machine.’
Stayed tuned for another ESG video coming in September, for Scene 7, ‘Circadian Rhythm’…….
