CURRENT PROJECT QUIET DREAMS

Friday, August 30, 2019




As the summer gets ready to sleep fall begins to make its appearance as the landscape prepares colder weather and tricolored skin. I can feel the change in my body readying those feelings I feel every year; the quiet, the lonely and the nostalgic. The feels keep repeating and I'm always reminiscent of what I've been through years before. It's almost unhealthy, but it's also a good reminder of how far I've come.


I started sorting through this body of work again and have made many adjustments of how I wanted to approach the project. Unfortunately the starting concept of this record and images has changed direction and could not head there through a few factors:

  • Too much filler between photographs and songs
  • Sequencing the music and images timeline wise doesn't work
  • No uniformity from January to December
  • Most of this work doesn't fit
  • The atmosphere gets lost
  • Doesn't tell a consecutive story


Though with these failures I've learnt that bodies of work never go in the direction you want it to go. To be honest it's a blessing as it breathes new life to what it originally started off to be. I can see the body of work being something more pure than the intention from the start.

The shitty part was holding this sequenced idea for so long that I almost shelved it. It was a bigger project than I expected and having forced myself to create a body work intended to timeline what I have created was so stressful. I think it would've been worse if I had kept it that way. Glad that I got that out of my head and can now hyperfocus on what really matters on this project.

Michael Behlen and I have been talking a bit about this project. Previously I have helped him on his Searching For Stillness projects and has always come to me for help and advice. Now I'm coming to him for this massive entity I almost wanted to forget. I think that having someone else help with the edit has definitely helped free me from being drowned in it. I can now look and see how he perceives the project.

Thank you Mike. You've always had my back on shit like this

BUENO POWER HOUR PODCAST EPISODE #28 - CONCRETE CONCRETE

Wednesday, August 28, 2019




I've waited for this band to release something for a few years now and here they are with a full length record! Unbelievable. The record is solid with grooves, melody and imagery that takes the likes of bands of TOE and Explosions in the Sky. The record tells a story of a restless soul going through a past life departure toward ongoing future destinations. Relatable with the songs sequenced from beginning to end I could add that the record could also illustrate the motions of loss or heartbreak leading toward contentment of new relationships and love. It's music like this that create a cinematic imagination for the listener that create realizations they've never dealt with before.

I get a chance to speak with Pei and Andi on this monster of a record and dissect everything about it such as production, sound, theme and the jump of the band. It was the first time I got to speak with two individuals simultaneously to talk about their project. This was an absolute honor and I hope that I get a chance to see them and meet them someday. Thank you guys for the good times. I can't wait for your next bodies of work

Some plugs may be pulled in an instant when you're not careful with what you do. Even at moments when you thought things are normal could lead you to lose direction instantly. This week was certainly one of those weeks.
