what the oud was doing

http://www.alansondheim.org/kyber2.mp4

the oud was making sound behind the performance space
in front of the performance space behind the viewers
the magic of wires and speakers
the articulated magic of mixers and piezoelectrics
'i don't want to be known as a percussionist, but as an
oud player who utilizes percussion as if he's playing
pipa in the martial style,' 'then descending to mountains
and butterflies'
it's that same alien landscape spewing everywhere
it's that cold light, lcd/led, the light that kills things
nothing can grow in the magic alien cold-light killing field
the oud was saying that and the legs were dancing
the arms were dancing too

Last Day from Foofwa's Terrific Camera, Two Excerpts


http://www.alansondheim.org/day7a.mp4
http://www.alansondheim.org/day7b.mp4

with Chris Diosparra, Foofwa d'Imobillite, Alan Sandheim,
Azur Cartier, Mark Swawreck

of course really like these excerpts; they were pulled
from three hours of continuous performance. Enjoy!
the last posting from this session. past recordings
were collapsed as background, and active mixed reality
backgrounds were transformed. the themes I wanted to
pursue, earlier on, dealing with distortion, pain,
ecstasy, etc. were more dominant, as were methods for
dealing with exhaustion and (in my case) sickness.

 

Last day today part TWO

some dancing and running from Foofwa some singing from Azure
some other stuff from Me

http://www.alansondheim.org/day7theSABBATH.mp4

Today was the best day ever, incredible performances:
Chris Diasparra, baritone sax
Foofwa d'Imobilite, dance and choreography
Azure Carter, dance, choreography, and song
Mark Skwarek, augmented reality
Alan Sondheim, video, flute, ken bau, cura cumbus, oud

 

Last day today

http://www.alansondheim.org/breaktime.mp4
Today was the best day ever, incredible performances:
Chris Diasparra, baritone sax
Foofwa d'Imobilite, dance and choreography
Azure Carter, dance, choreography, and song
Mark Skwarek, augmented reality
Alan Sondheim, video, flute, ken bau, cura cumbus, oud

We went continuously for three hours, changing audio, video,
instrumentation, choreographies

Then we crashed and broke the mold, watching in Second Life
a recap of what we did, in a decathected setting
so many hours after we left the scene - both real and virtual
and somewhere in-between or outside any conceivable reality!

every day we learn something new and are very happy
we are growing day by day and producing wonderful work
we are always bettering ourselves and reaching for the stars
every day new plateaus become old plateaus and launching pads
we are miracles and we create miracles
every day there are new wonders and we are so excited
every day our beauty flowers in our works and wonderful new worlds

Eyebeam, Day 5 performance, with Azure Carter, Foofwa d'Imobilite,
Mark Skwarek, and Alan Sondheim
