Spring Session M.
Not much new to report. Steady working on art and music. Blah blah blah, you know the drill. New album at the designer's (to be released on my new label), working on some new 4/4 stuff at the moment, and new comics sometime in 2006. Also writing the JOHNNY GAMBIT remake, God knows when that'll see the light of day.
I've become so Zen over release dates, man. Stuff'll be out when it's supposed to come out.
I'm dropping the DJ T-1000 tag soon, it's over. I'll be sending out a press release on it, but you folks who read the blog know first, 'cause you're all special like that. The time for the Terminator has come and gone.
Also, Generator is poised to start back up. All-new artists, all-new sounds, good distribution. I'm not running it, though. My business partner, Giaxia, is at the helm this time. I'm just there for advice and moral support. The first release is in the can and no, it's not me. More on this as it gets going.
The art continues, too. Working on some new gallery pieces for a new show in Europe this year. I went to this place in Wicker Park today to see if I could possibly put my art on their walls, but I dropped this big $125 Warhol book on the floor so that was that.
I thought very, very briefly about trying to do a little gallery show in Detroit during festival weekend since I'll be in town to DJ, but I was talked out of it.
The gallery on Milwaukee near Damen where I did my first show is never open when I pass by. I wouldn't be surprised if it was closed for good.
Has anybody seen Jeff Mills' "Blue Potential" DVD? How is it? I haven't gotten around to e-mailing him for a copy. Radiance?
A friend of mine burned me a copy of "Tin Drum" by Japan. That shit still sounds good. Funky and experimental at the same time, with both live instruments and electronics.
OK, going to paint now.

Yeah I listened to that Blue Potential CD. I haven't watched the DVD though, just listened to the music. I gotta admit it's quite an interesting project. Some tracks work really well with a philarmonic orchestra, it's definitely worth a listen. Of course it's meant to be played at home...

Regarding your Generator label: nice to hear that it's being relaunched. What kind of music will be released there? (thinking of sending a demo right now)
Well, we are considering all styles of music as long as it's interesting to us. I'd advise you to wait until the first release is out and we see how it does before sending any demos.
