1. This is the second movement of my piece Hunting for Mushrooms. I love looking at this bridge and thought you might like to also. The piece as a whole is meant to be performed by a TEAC tape deck, accompanied by a film projector and written word on chalkboard. I have yet to determine how I will present the chalkboard aspect online. Visit my tumblr account kurtvernonroembke.tumblr.com/

  2. This is the first movement of my piece called Hunting for Mushrooms. It is the only piece unaccompanied by video. I personally like to listen to it with my eyes closed. The piece as a whole is meant to be performed by a TEAC tape deck, accompanied by a film projector and written word on chalkboard. I have yet to determine how I will present the chalkboard aspect online. Visit my tumblr account http://kurtvernonroembke.tumblr.com/

  3. This is the third movement of my piece Hunting for Mushrooms. This is another area of IPFW that I thought was beautiful. Sometimes we get in the habit of appreciating beauty for just a few seconds and the moving on. This segment is intended to contradict that thought process. The piece as a whole is meant to be performed by a TEAC tape deck, accompanied by a film projector and written word on chalkboard. I have yet to determine how I will present the chalkboard aspect online. Visit my tumblr account kurtvernonroembke.tumblr.com/

  4. This is the fourth movement of my piece Hunting for Mushrooms. The first part of the music is me improvising on a single take. The second half (after the drone switches) is a more structured and metered variation on the first part. The firework sounds was a result of an accident I made in a synthesis patch. The actors seen are my two friends Logan Weber and Keith Davis. The piece as a whole is meant to be performed by a TEAC tape deck, accompanied by a film projector and written word on chalkboard. I have yet to determine how I will present the chalkboard aspect online. Visit my tumblr account kurtvernonroembke.tumblr.com/

Hunting for Mushrooms is a multimedia piece I composed to perform at Fort Wayne Fringe. It is minimalistic music inspired by John Cage. Instruments used range from recorders and guitar to spliced spoken word and whistling. It is meant to be performed by a TEAC tape deck and accompanied by a film projector and a chalkboard. I composed the film to represent a microcosm of my daily surroundings. The inspiration that shows most is that of David Fincher and Jean Cocteau (specifically the reversal footage.) In the live performance I wrote poetry that fit the tone of the music and also tied in thematically to the video footage. I might post some of the poetry in my tumblr blog which you can find here http://kurtvernonroembke.tumblr.com/.
