        Mike Kelley was one of small number of artists I've long held unconditional respect and admiration for. An absolute genius. A beautiful goofball. Mike, you are missed. I've shot a number of DAM shows over the years, but this piece reflects the things I loved most about Mike and DAM. This footage is average at best, but I post it for its spirit and not its technical merits. RIP

              I'm supposed to edit some live footage I've recently recorded of Sonic Youth as content for sonicyouth.com and am interpreting the task relatively freely. This piece is comprised of treated footage from SY's 2010 Prospect Park show in NYC. I've pulled every clip documenting the musicians' feet (mostly re-zoomed and therefore, degraded, footage) to choreograph the sort of dance discussed in the overdubbed dialogue. I imagined the physical movement inherent to live rock performance as a pure, contemporary extension of the classical Indian Sangita mentioned by John Cage--Sangitas being visualizations of melody as people. The attached dialogue was captured from a streamed-special on Merce Cunningham that aired around the time of his passing. A Minneapolis reference suggests it might be from the Walker Art Center, but I'm uncertain. This segment of audio features Merce and John Cage in conversation about motion, sound and chance versus correlative approaches to meshing them.
