Pardon? – Acousmatic Ecology pt II – album release and tour

26 Nov

pardon? Acousmatic Ecology part 2 by Drive West Today

- a new album/collection from Drive West Today which is a free download from Bandcamp.

Drive West Today has been expanding over 2011 and 2012 to encompass more than just the cinematic experience of listening to sound. Joshua Santospirito’s guitar is more and more placed into textural compositions that contrast silence to clicks and bursts of sonar.

The recordings in the Acousmatic Ecology series are a document of one moment in a long slow exploration of stops and starts and counterintuition. All aimed at creating stillness within a maelstrom of anxiety and the elevation of the soul in the midst of confusion, attempting to take the listener into the performing experience.

The second part of acousmatic ecology becomes more minimal than the first (Acousmatic Ecology pt I – a query) but it continues further along the same line of explorations that were opened up by that collection of works.

“Last Drinks!!”
Sorry to harass you on this fine weeknight … but I’ve made this comic … it took a while … and I’m trying to flog it to unsuspecting citizens of the web such as your good self. It’s called THE LONG WEEKEND IN ALICE SPRINGS.
Preorders through the POZIBLE campaign will wind up on December 12th!
If you don’t preorder then I can’t guarantee that you’ll get a copy later on in the piece SO ACT TODAY!!
It’s only $30 for those lucky-ducks who live in Australia (postage included), there’s also some other options up for grabs if you’d like a little more stuff!!
 
Books will go out in the post March 2013!! Included in the book is a beautiful new piece of writing by Craig San Roque which is … quite frankly – poetry! 
 
If you’d like further updates into the future (photos of the book being made, book launches, related exhibitions etc) 
- then feel free to join this facebook page.
Thanks

Below is a page I did as an early trial when I was still working out what kind of structure I wanted the pages to have (i.e. panel structure), I was also trying out a few fonts at the time, I reckon I must’ve worked on the script after I did this because I have scrapped all of the words that were here … I just unearthed it in my computer today … I think this must have been from late 2009 or early 2010.

Queenstown Art fest

13 Nov

So Nadine and I went to Queenstown to help out with Inflight Art’s side of things at the Inaugural Queenstown Heritage and Arts festival in October of this year. It was a blast – on Sunday morning I woke up and went downstairs at the nurse’s quarters to find these two ragamuffins looking half awake wrapped in blankets in the common room … they’d been chasing some goat up a mountain and then hanging out with Con Koukias in a caravan somewhere drinking … dangerous sport!

Here’s a sketch of Q’town from the nurse’s quarters common room.
