As puzzled as the Oyster

Went to the MOMA opening for the Van Gogh exhibit. It was all about his work with darkness. It was really nice to see the layers of paint slathered on the canvas. It made me think of a piece that I'm in the process of starting...more info on that below.....











Afterwards we took photos in front of the building...James's photos are better, my camera is no good...



Then we went to a show for a band called "Two Mirrors" I think, and they had a showing of their first music video, it was good.....





This is an interesting combination of prints and fabrics....I liked it......

James Noir:

SO an amazing opportunity has occured and I just can't believe that it's true. I have been on the search for a lathe cutter to start learning how to cut my own vinyl for my performances. The lathe cutter I was interested in was to be flown in from Stuttgart, Germany and I would have to fly over and take a 2 day course on how to assemble and use the thing. It was a daunting task but I was willing to make the commitment to learn. Then a friend of a friend told me about an opportunity to become an apprentice to Master Lather Cutter and founder of the Audio Engineering Society, Albert Grundy. I would learn and use professional equipment from Brooklyn Phono, a Brookyln based vinyl cutting service. Amazing.....


My first task will be to find 3 missing parts for this lathe cutter. Once I find them Albert and I will re-assemble the machine and get it in working order....

Where the computer connects to send the sound file to the lathe....

To work out the low, mids and highs.....
A press that is made after the acetate has been cut...
A professional vinyl cutter....

You place the press in here and a puck of vinyl comes out that's been heated then it presses into the "press plate"....
My new school....


More updates every week and my progress....I will be planning on holding a tour of the facilities to my friends who are interested in learning the process from recording to record. When I get more info I will let you know....
