Two videos, a short one and a long one, that use a Processing sketch I’m developing for my PROJEKTOR module, sound from my AVSynth.

Fall Tour 2017: Day 5

December 15, 2017

On the road at 7:30am, early start, stopped at 9:30am for breakfast. Then on to Scranton PA and the Krispy Kreme Doughnut store.

Ugly Sweater Day

It’s ‘Ugly Sweater Day’, I get an extra dozen Original Glazed FREE. Mary Ann will be delighted. Back in the car to I84 out of Pennsylvania, through New York and Connecticut, to Massachusetts. I arrive back home a little before 5pm, load out, unpack, have a bath, go out for dinner with Mary Ann, Eric and Felicia. Pass out around 9:30pm, tour over.

Fall Tour 2017: Day 4

December 14, 2017

Slept in, until 9am. Patrick and Jack are up, Zach dead to the world.

Fruit and yogurt for breakfast, turned down the Reese’s Puffs, but accepted an espresso from Jack. Quiet morning scanning Patrick’s library. He has a collection of Surrealist paperbacks. I update my tour log.

Patricks house



Patrick makes pasta with pesto for lunch.

Around 3pm we load out, Jack is riding with me. Back roads to Rte 40 through Maryland to West Virginia to Rte340 to I81 to Harrisonburg Virginia. We arrive at the Golden Pony about 6:30pm, load in, free pizza and a couple of Natty Bos. Jack orders his own personal pizza. Zach and Patrick are over at the record store. They join me in time for the free pizza.

Tonight we are part of the Cow Project Benefit, a fundraiser for a non-profit for preserving “the relationship of human, animal, and land.” We are expecting farm animals.

Zach on the big stage

The Golden Pony, downstairs, is a club, big stage and sound system, which we will ignore. We have, perhaps, too much room. We set up – to the right, Zach upstage, Jack downstage, to the left Patrick downstage, and I’m upstage. We’re pretty spread out, it’s a big room, a different spatial volume than usual. Either, because of this, or just plain orneriness, I play too ‘loudly’, or to be more exact too ‘densely’. I need to leave more holes. And that’s densely, not intensely, which is good. Zach plays intensely. Nonetheless, it was, I think, a good set. Here, as in Baltimore, there were several audience members who were ‘dancing’!

Anxious to get back to Lowell and faced with a 9-10 hour drive, I decide to leave after our set, load out, back on I81. I drive until midnight, stop in Chambersburg PA.

Fall Tour 2017: Day 2

December 12, 2017

Up early, coffee and scrambled eggs. Uploaded photos and updated my blog. Around 11am we packed up and loaded out, I followed Jack in to Philly, US22 to I476 to I76, to the Spring Garden Music House to pick up Zach.

A great little book

Lunch, fish on toast. Found a great little book.

Around 3pm we’re back on I76 heading west to Harrisburg. My rent-a-car is beeping, it’s 0 degrees Centigrade and I need gas. I stop just outside Harrisburg, gas up, turn on Google Maps. Surprise Google maps takes me north, the venue is south, and west to I81, past Harrisburg. Finally it turns me around, I arrive at Little Amps at 6:30pm. Jack and Zach, who were ahead of me on the highway, are not there yet, they arrive at 7:00pm. The mapping program had taken me around a giant traffic jam, good job!

The crowd

Looks like we will have a good crowd despite the cold, and it’s cold, and windy. There are two bands before us, we play last. It’s a rocker.

Harrisburg PA

We pack up, load out then head down the block to Andy and Erica’s house. It’s still early around 9pm, we watch a Netflix documentary on Pygmies. Andy arrives then heads back out for beer. We all sit around and chat then turn in for the night.
