H0L0 set

As mentioned previously, I played a solo set a couple of weeks ago at H0L0 with Christina Puerto (Giants/Bethlehem Steel), Warm Dust and HOST. Everyone on that bill is a friend and super talented, so I was really excited to get to play, and the night had a good vibe all around.

I wanted to try to do a set that combined my obtuse tape-looping machine with some of the songs I’d been working on for the bcc: record and beyond. Practicing with this setup beforehand was pretty hit or miss, so I was nervous going in, but overall it felt pretty good, and I might even do it again.

For now, here are a couple of videos that Kaitlyn (who plays bass in bcc: and Jury Duty) took, and a recording of the full set, for the curious. The lyrics are ad hoc, so if it sounds like nonsense, it’s because it is. The one exception is the last song, “My Hiding Life”, which is a cover of a song my friend Seth Long wrote.

Next show is 5/11 at Gold Sounds

Until next time,


Another show 4/16/2019

Hey all, I hope 2019 has been going well so far for you.

bcc: has been busy. We did basic tracks for an album in February; in May, we’ll do a few more things to make it sound better. I will write lyrics to sing that are not made up on the fly.

Before that, though, I’ll be doing a solo bcc: set at H0L0 on 4/16. It’s going to be kind of a mix between the songs on the record and the tape loops I was doing a couple of years ago. Hopefully it will be interesting. If nothing else, it’s with some good friends and musicians whose work is all worth checking out.

Below is a flyer with relevant details:

I'm going to try this again. Maybe there will be more tape loop experiments, but probably not in the near future.

For now there will be a couple of different things:

  1. A visual project called The Economist - I started subscribing to The Economist in December. Who knows why. Probably to get some news from a fairly MOR and realiable source who I don't always agree with, but which also isn't so U.S. focused. Anyways, now I get it in print and after I'm done with them, I make collages with them on old computer punch cards I bought. This will be updated more or less weekly, with at least 1-2 per week as I catch up on back issues. There's already a dozen or so there.
  2. A new music project called bcc:. I'm rehearsing for an album of "improvised songs" with a particular group of folks, and may put out some other more normal stuff sooner. Also might be playing out soon. More on that to come.

And though the credits have rolled on DTCC for now, it's always a good idea to stick around until after that final Panavision logo rolls.
