Gee whiz, I wish they still made extended commercials for appliances with dancing and wanton frolicking. Just...I don't even...(sputters)...c-c-customizable fridge panels? Fridge parties? Warp-fridges? Sideways ice-cube trays with LEVERS?!? I mean, COME ON! Can you imagine the commercials these folks would make for a modern blender???

Go buy it for $1. Your fridge will thank you. Even if it doesn't have a warp-powered sideways-levered ice-cube delivery system.

Tabla is almost as cool as a warp fridge.

I originally wrote and recorded the music for a dance piece choreographed by Mitch Kirsch, a Cunningham dancer, so a randomly generated refrigerator theme is pretty much in the spirit, I think. AND...the rhythms are all made up of phrases of 5 and 7, so the discovery of a refrigerator dance video from 1957 was a pleasantly serendipitous happystance.

See?

AND, the person I kept thinking about while making this video has 5 letters in her first name (Freya) and 7 in her last (Sargent). "oooooOOOoooo" Hi Freya! -waves-

Those music people you were hearing are:
Ed Hanley on tabla, voice and programming
Parmela Attariwala on viola and or violin
Debashis Sinha on riqq
Suba Sankaran on vocals

Those videos you were seeing are all from the Prelinger Archives, are public domain and were super fun to edit (err...what does this 'composite mode' do...duuuude no way).

off to search 'blender' in the Prelinger Archives.... (swoosh)

ok...the warp part isn't really in the original video. But it totally could have been.
