MUSIC

I've been working on lots of new Temple ov Saturn material... you can hear clips of it in the videos.  I also did a remix of Ravel's "Daybreak" movement from Daphnis et Chloe. You can download it for free on the Whip Angels Bandcamp...

Month in Review: January 2018

So far, 2018 already feels better than 2017. Overall, its been a good month. Before I overview my works created this month, I want to revise my intention to create a book series related to the Surrealist Erotica stuff. I originally thought I'd do a series of separate books, each one dedicated to a different artist or writer. I've decided to go a different way with it- make one book- that includes my Surrealist-related erotic photos, collages, and other art and literary works created with the techniques of the Surrealists. There will be a run of regularly printed books, and then a special limited edition where the contents are loose in a box, a la Duchamp's Box-in-a-Valise. Follow me on Twitter and Steemit to keep up-to-date on my Surrealist-related works.

Music

I released a collection of many of my early, instrumental, unfinished works as a free album called Excess on Bandcamp:

I also released a remix of a song I did with Primitive Knot last year. Its also a free download on Bandcamp: 

I also released 2 songs as Pope Joan II, which are more of the classical music remixes I've been doing. The first samples Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusick. I used it as the soundtrack to the Dorothea Tanning episode of the Surrealist Erotica video because she has a painting with the same title. The other remix sampled Ravel's Le tombeau de Couperin.

I released a few new tracks on D-sound as well that I will eventually put on Bandcamp as a collection. Check them out: Dream Dealer, Interwar Tension, and Practical Dreamer.

Erotica

I added some more episodes to the Surrealist Erotica series: Juliet Man Ray, Jacques-Andre Boiffard, Andre Masson, Dorothea Tanning, and Alice Prin. I also added new stuff to OnlyFans and I created a curated "best of" type collection for Vimeo-on-Demand called The Erotic Collection.

Bonus video inspired by a series of Man Ray photos:

I created a "best of" collection called The Erotic Collection available through Vimeo-on-Demand. Its selected videos that have been published already on OnlyFans. I'll be adding to it as time goes on.


Videos

I only made one collage-esque video this month. I made a couple other videos using found footage for some of my music. 


Outings

I don't get out much in general, but in the winter its especially bad. I attended the PBR Buck Off at Madison Square Garden and saw the New York Philharmonic perform Ravel and Debussy. Other than that, I've just been working on my art and music.
