Here’s a new song I made under the moniker dustChamp. I’ve been experimenting with mixing orchestral and electronic elements. This song is a result of that smashing. It’s an interesting learning process. The song is quite big and very percussive with an industrial feel. Have a listen.
Here is a video of the lecture I gave at the Industry Lab Gallery in Cambridge, Mass on July 20th, 2012.
It was part of a show titled “Lies Are Fine” with artists Trisha Holt, Sean Joseph Patrick Carney and myself.
Curated by Emily Hurley, Jordan Wayne Long and Jamie Zigelbaum.
A few days ago, Michael Gross, Jimmy Kelly, Ben Johnson and I got together to learn the song “6 Underground” by Sneaker Pimps. It’s one of those songs I that no memory of until I re-listened to it on YouTube, then all my horrible memories of the 90s came rolling back in.
We wanted it to be a bit more guitar-centric than the original and spacey … very spacey. A day or two after our initial meeting, we recorded it. Mike and I met in my basement where I recorded the drums, a scratch vocal and guitar part. After that, we drove down to Jimmy’s legendary diamond ring and bean bag emporium and recorded all of Jimmy’s and Ben’s parts.
That’s it. Now Listen.
During my last semester at Cranbrook Academy of Art, I began filming my fellow photo students. I filmed our art making process, our odd non-art activities and our road to graduation. This is the first of four parts.
