Commune Wednesday's at the Soda Bar, San Diego, March 26, 2014

This was an exceptional evening at The Soda Bar. Despite the Southern California spring rains that made it a wet and cool night, the place was packed and hot with plenty of dancing from the start.

I set up stage-left at the start of the evening with plans to move around and take breaks between sets. Turned out that that was impossible. I got stuck in my little corner of the club. Couldn't leave my place for any bathroom breaks and endured the need, till the last set was over.

Despite all this I captured a rad event. Too bad I didn't have a crowd-cam to capture all the dancing and fun that was going on behind me.

ILYA - I Want to Know

I created these two as an exercise in trying out ideas for a bigger project.
Two versions, one B&W and one Color.
Created the color one first and then decided to check it out in B&W.

The name of the dancer in the video is Maya Plisetskya, source video is here on YouTube.

DIE MISSBILDUNGEN with ZeuqsaV | The Bancroft Bar | Spring Valley, CA - 2/15/2014

This was my first attempt at live video mixing as "ZeuqsaV", and for music or anything for that matter, besides house parties. I used TouchViz for iPad on the main projector, and an analog video mixer (with a MiniDV Camera and a montage burned to DVD playing) and another projector directed towards the left side of the stage (stage right). Not all of the imagery reached the stage, some was on the ceiling, the floor and on the backs of the audience, but the effects were still rad (from what I'm told). My vantage point was obscured by the crowd.

SDXG13 - San Diego Experimental Guitar Show - 03/23/2013




This is the playlist from start to finish.


Saturday, March 23, 2013
The 4th Annual San Diego Experimental Guitar show
@ The Soda Bar
http://sdxgusa.com/

The San Diego Experimental Guitar Show, now in its fourth year, encourages local musicians who have outgrown the limitations of conventional guitar playing. These artists have expanded their technique by using their imagination rather than instruction. Gone are the orthodox chords and standard scales normally attributed to the instrument. A new musical vocabulary of tone and timbre emerges in its place.

This year's performers include (in order of appearance):

BART STULL
CLINT DAVIS
SCOTT NIELSEN
WAGES
DEMETRIUS ANTUÑA
RAFTER
