JOE IURATO PRINT – JAPAN RELIEF

March 27, 2011

Hey -

BUY THE JOE IURATO PRINT TO SUPPORT THE RELIEF EFFORT IN JAPAN<

There are still a few of these available. Get a solid, near-iconic print. 15$ a pop, where 75% goes to the relief of the Japanese people, and the other 25% to keep the lights on at the printing company.

I picked up a couple.

Here are some photos of Joe's work at the Fountain Art Fair a couple weeks back.

ROMPING THROUGH THE STREETS OF BUSHWICK, JAN2010 – BROOKLYNSTREETART.COM

These were the photos of the street art amidst street artist, jef aerosol, that sunny winter saturday. 
at one point early on, i asked if it were ok to shoot some shoes that were hanging from a telephone pole. 
he said, yes, go right ahead.  quite patient, and even took out his own camera to photograph them,
alongside of me.  From that point forward, I took great liberties to also photograph everything that I found me.
Heres a post done for BrooklynStreetArt.com

And I think Steve and Jamie deserve much credit for putting together such a great event.
I feel very fortunate to have been a part of it all.

TONIGHT’S TRACK – SONDENS – INERTIA

February 4, 2010

TONIGHT’S TRACK – SONDENS – INERTIA

Sondens is an old German friend of mine, based in Vienna.  He’s not only an exceptional musician and DJ, he rocks many European galleries with his thoughtful and complex installations…and he’s damn good.

Tonight’s Track is from my friend Benoni, otherwise known as Sondens.

The first track is really new and amazing, with Violetta Parisini, but I especially enjoy the second track – Inertia, and the forth track – someonewontresist.

Here’s a pic of Benoni’s work, and a link to his website: http://tinyurl.com/yk3eut8.

But hit up those tracks, I think you’ll enjoy.

TONIGHT’S TRACK – NEW LALI PUNA JAM – REMEMBER

February 1, 2010

TONIGHT’S TRACK – NEW LALI PUNA JAM – REMEMBER

I have to say, I was originally disappointed when I heard this track.  It’s been such a long time since Valerie Trebeljahr, the brains behind Lali Puna, has put out any new music.

I mean, having a child changes priorities naturally, and that’s wonderful.  But it was more of the same.  It wasn’t seeing it as impressive, or really relevant.  I thought perhaps that the music would evolve subsequent to such a momentous occasion.  I thought for a second that perhaps music to her was more mathematical…more logic than feeling.

And I quickly countered that thought with reason, noting…her music is emotive just as it is.  And shit, more of the same isn’t necessarily a bad thing.  It breathes, and it’s refreshing to go back to something familiar…but still different.

Lali Puna

Do I expect a lot from the artists I love the most?  Absolutely.  It’s the same with how I value my friendships and relationships with anyone.  The closer you are to me, the more I expect from you…and that’s the same high/intense level I operate on in return.  Perhaps it’s a flaw.  Perhaps that sets you, and the people you love most in the world, up for failure.  I dont know.  But I guess we’re all still learning – we better be.

In this case though, this is not the first time I’ve been let down by this artist.  One of the reasons I went to Iceland in 2007 was to hit Iceland Airwaves, a 5 day music festival. It was predominantly because one of my absolute hidden favorite band’s was Valerie’s band, Lali Puna. I sacrificed my final night of music festival to see Lali Puna.  While I was meeting people all over the place, I was alone most of this trip.  It’s nice to be free on your own sometimes.

But on that final evening of my 11 day trip, I passed up seeing the FM Belfast and Chromeo show with 3 other Americans I met randomly in the greatest of Icelandic places – people that would soon become the closest of friends in my life.  And, Im sorry…after 3 or 4 years of not touring (and she hasn’t toured since), it was a disappointing flat-energy show.

But…after a second, third, fourth and fifth listen of Remember.  I really dig it.  And, like it’s title, it brings me back.

Lali 2

When I first came across Lali Puna in 2004, right when Faking the Books was released, it couldn’t have been better timing.  I found that first album…and I went back for the other 2 full lengths, and an EP. It fit the winter, it fit the introspection and it worked so well into the late spring.

She became a phase, and her music was a soundtrack for that period in my life…quite similar to my Serge Gainsbourg obsession…that’s another story for another day.

EYEWRITER – An Incredible Creative Breakthrough for those with ALS

January 29, 2010

EYEWRITER – An Incredible Creative Breakthrough for those with ALS

People love to hang onto the notion that the graffiti movement is one that is full of gangs, testosterone, pride, and vandalism.  Here’s proof positive that the movement does work in positive ways, and is making very interesting (and inexpensive) progress on a specific project – Eye Writer.  

My friend Felix brought this to my attention and it’s really fascinating.  I highly recommend you give it a look.  Basically, this project is working to empower those suffering from ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) with a means of being creative, and active in their community.  Active?  Yes, via the eye-tracking apparatus that allows graffiti writers to write with their eyes…and their tags are then displayed via projector.  

It is a low-cost eye-tracking apparatus & custom software that allows graffiti writers and artists with paralysis resulting from Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis to draw using only their eyes.

ALS is a neurological disease that causes muscle weakness, disability and eventually death.  To donate, and help move research along, please do so at the following link: http://www.alsa.org/donate/default.cfm
