Autotopia, we are still recording and mixing. has just gone up. Mary Wright and I have been collaborating on an Orchestral piece that should be recorded and performed in August of 2009, in Portland. I received a grant from RACC for this.

What I've been listening to lately:

1. Gather in the Mushrooms - various artists - a fantastic collection of late 60's/early 70's British Acid and Underground folk.
2. Vous et Nous - Brigitte Fontaine and Areski Belkacem 1977 - bleeping synthesizers, electronic drums, North African, Eastern European folk instruments. Funny and difficult.
3.Clandestino - Manu Chao - Funny and political, melodic and confrontational. Galaga samples! Will I ever get tired of this album?
4. Joni Mitchell - really listening to her alternate guitar tunings and finger-picking. It's really smart especially 'Urge for Going' from before her first album, I think. Here's a great video of her on the Johnny Cash show

What I've been listening to lately

1. Willem Breuker a dutch saxophonist, clarinetist, composer and bandleader. A mix of Kurt Weill, Kid Ory and Bela Bartok. Very hard to find.
2. Bauhaus This is such a great band with a very misunderstood fan-base. The song "Boys" makes me particularly happy.
3. Louis Armstrong my vote for the best musician of the 20th century.
4. Willie Nelson - in the seventies, Willie really expanded country music. 1975's "Red-Headed Stranger" and 1974's "Phases and Stages" are both amazing concept albums that seamlessly mix covers and originals. Really great stuff.





I am co-curating an art show with Giovanni Garcia-Fenech called: Are 'Friends' Electric? The Art of the online Personal Ad.
