1. note this is a savagely truncated [using 5s-40s cross fades and a minimum of deletion]
    and low resolution version of the finished 38 minute piece

    it has been performed in september 2015 in new brunswick new jersey
    and silver spring maryland

    video source -- the 44 seconds of jimi hendrix's performance
    from when he bows down before his guitar before setting it a' flame to when he has
    thrown the guitar into the audience at the monetray pop festival in june 1967

    audio sources -- the incrediblesolo introduction to wild thing 1m16s
    the initial riff [trio] 11s
    first instrumental break [trio] 50s
    outro instrumental [trio] prior to sacrifice 1m27s
    sacrifice -- from bowing down to end 44s
    4m46s
    these sources were pitch and time stretched
    and contribute to the final mix
    also added into the mix was a recording of a bonfire i recorded in 2002

    note
    in performance the sound track is broadcast in stereo
    i accompany this with monophonic pentatonic or octotonic scaled triggered electronics
    using a yamaha dtxpress voice module. its output is broadcast using multiple bass amplifiers

    note also that i do not claim copyright on the source materials, which were ripped from a dvd of the monterey performance

  2. this is a very low resolution and severely truncated example edited from the performance file

    this is part two of performance - part one is a john coltrane memorial
    source: youtube file from warsaw poland 1986 - audio edited and time dilated - video - time dilated via interpolation - in performance the file is projected - the stereo audio runs through pa - this is accompanied by real time triggered pentatonic electronics amplified via 2 x bass amps -- this monophonic signal allows audience to discriminate my playing from my composited 'soundtrack'

  4. note file this was uploaded at a very low resolution

    visual material
    some captured cymatically using contained water as the medium to be excited by the sound
    the camera used was a sony handycam set on auto-focus & as the water is moving both up and
    out the camera itself would take on an animating animism
    'natural' imagery was captured using a flip camera with a 0.45x wide angle lens
    some of the material was also time dilated using a vintage software [first developed for atari]
    that uses interpolation rather than frame multiplication and or filtered

    the audio material was either drawn from live recordings of my acoustic percussion performances, or where 'natural' imagery was captured the attendant audio would
    be captured as well and then incorporated into the mix for the 'sound track'

    in performance
    in performance the sound track is broadcast in stereo
    i accompany this with monophonic pentatonic or octotonic scaled triggered electronics
    using a yamaha dtxpress voice module. its output is broadcast using multiple bass amplifiers
