Schlarb at Hole Mole

Chris and I met at Hole Mole (Wardlow) in Long Beach for an engaged discussion about junkyards, music, Twilight & Ghost Stories, recording, Fire Music, Psychic Temple, documentation, and creativity. No session has been announced, but we agreed that I would send him a series of recordings to get things started. Chris will then digest the material and see what sparks. We’ll reconvene and take it from there.

A transcript of our conversation will be posted here at a later date. Stay tuned for more developments.

Twilight and Ghost Stories

I share this image with my students each quarter as an example of well-considered mix map. I hope to inspire them to think of the multi-track mix as an organic, complex system. Some of them get it, I think.

I certainly do, and I know that Chris does.

If the map is not the place, then every place is ultimately unable to be mapped. Let the map and the place to which it points coexist in a system not of binaries but of simultaneity.

Let there be a score for the recording. A proposal and then a transcription. Between the two are the learning and the discovery.
