Hi darlin', how's the weather???

Lunar eclipse make me wanna lunar disco. If you missed it then it sucks to be you.


THE MOTION OF FIASCO TRANSMUTATION @ Roulette, SOHO, NYC March 15th, 2008>>>>-->>take 1,069,007

First things first, went to the TEXAS FIREHOUSE (PROPS TO Sculptor and all around Texas good ol' boy-->WYATT NASH<--- CHALLAH!!)in Long Island City, NYC and tie tape piece by piece to the fan......


Old cassettes that I found in my place....I hope they weren't too important....




Looks a little silly but it looks better later....



Thommy D. making it happen.....


Ah, there she goes, looks better than I thought it would, the projection isn't the actual film of the bridge, but rather some old footage that Thomas had, the shoot for that will happen probably in the first week of March.....


As we started to tie each tape piece we noticed how different each piece sounded.....then we started to work out a sound piece (contacts mics?) by just rubbing each strand of tape at different times. Sounded pretty good....



The first idea: the fan pointing towards the projection view:




The second, from the side, non of this is to scale, Roulette is so much bigger than Wyatt's space....I think this looks the best, on a lower setting on the fan, the tapes movement is more elegant that way....



The same as above only facing the tape:



The silhouette...now we may need to build a rear projection screen...


And then Wyatt's cat tigger got in on the avant-action....



A ghost of the tape falling, can you catch it??

--------------------

So Thomas, here are the "elements" we were talking about after this session, let's let it all stew while I'm out of town this weekend and we'll talk when you get back into town later next week....
