I spent a few days in Buffalo, NY to meet the creative people behind Raven Vanguard. I was glad to finally meet them and to see their beautiful and mysterious space. Looking forward to collaborating with them. In the mean time, please check out their work on their site.

It was my first time back in Buffalo since I living there almost 10 years ago. While I was there, I finally checked out the Eternal Flame and visited Niagara Falls. On the way home, I stopped in Utica for see Thomas Cole’s The Voyage of Life. All in all, it was a great long-weekend get-away.

I had a bunch of doctor stuff this week which took up a lot of my time. I had some more commissioned work as well, I can post it soon.

I worked on some new music too this week too but I wasn’t happy with the results. :(

This series of collages was commissioned by Invulnerable Nothings for their production of John Ford’s play The Broken Heart. The images were used in the playbill and some of my music was also featured. Invulnerable Nothings is a really wonderful performance collective, I highly recommend checking out their work.

I had some more medical tests this week so after being poked and prodded, I wasn’t feeling very attractive so I didn’t do much video/photo-wise. I felt really ‘off’ in general because of it all.

I have a show coming up on June 21st at Muchmore’s in Brooklyn and I will soon be announcing details for another Brooklyn show on July 27.

I will be doing visuals for this event in Jersey City to accompany a sound bath. [DATE HAS BEEN CHANGED… AN UPDATED POST TO COME edited 5/16]

June 21 at Muchmore’s in Brooklyn: Temple ov Saturn with 185668232, Cami-Oh, and Johnny Killman

This is the first Temple ov Saturn show since taking a break for health reasons. My health and growing medical debt is limiting my ability to come to NYC to perform so don’t wait thinking there will be another time to see me. I won’t be coming down to Brooklyn that much this year, if at all.


ETC…

I have the 2 events coming up… the sound bath in Jersey City on [TBA](DATE IS NO LONGER MAY 26… WILL UPDATE WHEN THE NEW DATE IS CONFIRMED) that I will be providing visuals for and a Temple ov Saturn show on June 21 in Brooklyn.

I’ve been working on some Temple ov Saturn remixes… I think I may offer them as part of a subscription on Bandcamp if people are interested. Maybe include some prints or something like that too. I’ll probably duplicate it for Patreon as well. I’ve never been any good at monetizing my work, I really want to just give everything away freely, but at the same time, it takes time and resources to create. My message is valuable, but not in a way that translates to what is deemed valuable in modern society.

With that said, I am available for hire for video editing. I have growing medical debt, so now would be a good time to consider me for your video needs. I don’t want to give up my art, but it may come to that given my current situation. So if you’d like to hire me, please get in touch by using my Contact page!

A perfect day in Rockland County.

UPCOMING… ETC…

I’m having some serious health issues so my ability and motivation to create is somewhat diminished although I am still trying to stay active. Hopefully all my health issues will be resolved over the course of the next month or two.
