Great interaction, listening, blend of textures.

Egregoros represents a “thoughtform” or “collective group mind”, an autonomous psychic entity made up of, and influencing, the thoughts of a group of people. The Greek word ἑγρήγορος means “Watcher.”

Our last show before Christos & family fly to Cyprus for the Summer. However we’ll see him August 1 at XFest Cyprus 2019 8^)))

The Cannery Residency: Day 12

June 9, 2019

Wake up at 7:00am

Pack up. Taking the three Rpis with me.

Steve, Mary Ann and I drive to the Helen and Scott Nearings’ Good Life Center on Cape Rosier, then on to Deer Isle and Stonington for lunch at the Harbor Cafe.

Back to South Penobscot, stop at the Strong Brewery.

Pack up, leave for Lowell ‘round 3:30pm, arrive home at 8:00pm.

The Cannery Residency: Day 11

June 8, 2019

Wake up at 7:00am.

Today’s ‘Ancient Whacks of Heraclitus’ card is “Disease makes health sweet and good, hunger satiety, and weariness rest.” The interpretation reads, “Opposites define and complement one another. If one cesed to exist the other wouldn’t have much meaning. Each puts the other in relief. Each is the ground from which the other stands out. Reversing your point of view is a good technique for opening up your thinking.”

Drive back to Penobscot with Mary Ann, stop in Belfast at Traci’s Diner.

Leslie, Mary Ann and I get channels 2 & 3 up and running. One projector is very dim, but otherwise both sound and video working well.

Work on scores for the performance and ‘soft’ opening tonight.

Work on Artist’s Talk.

Everything went well!

The Cannery Residency: Day 10

June 7, 2019

Wake up at 5:00am.

Today’s ‘Ancient Whacks of Heraclitus’ card is “Sea water is both pure and polluted: for fish it’s drinkable and life-giving; for humans undrinkable and destructive.” The interpretation reads, “Context determines meaning. Much of creativity is the ability to take a thing or a concept and put it in different contexts so that it takes on new meanings.”

AVSynth sound system gives up the ghost, it’s toast!

Channel 1 up and running, channels 2 and 3 all ready to go.

Drive back to Lowell to pick up Mary Ann.

The Cannery Residency: Day 9

June 6, 2019

Wake up at 6:30am.

Today’s ‘Ancient Whacks of Heraclitus’ card is “When we’re awake, there is one ordered universe, but in sleep each of us turns away from this world to one of our own.” The interpretation reads, “Your dreams are symbols through which your unconscious mind speaks to you. Take advantage of them.”

Adjust the layout moving projectors 1 & 3 to opposite sides, Leslie & I hang screens

Processing sound library not working, loop() command doesn’t!

Again, have to prerecord the video for an installation, not the same as running ‘live’.

The Cannery Residency: Day 8

June 5, 2019

Wake up at 7am.

Today’s ‘Ancient Whacks of Heraclitus’ card is “The sun will not deviate from its routine, becaue the avenging Furies, ministers of Justice, would find out” The interpretation reads, “If the sun behaves unpredictably; rose in the west or remained stationary for hours at a time, there would be chaos.Sometimes when we alter something, forces are set in motion that wreck havoc and cause horrific results.”

Started to layout the installation – projectors screens and speakers.

Editing video files, grabbing audio files, preparing to edit sound.
