AS-IS (finale) Song Lyrics, performance space       back   next (Political Cartoons)  
At the reception Thinkspeak performed live two sets sandwiching two DVD/song collaborations, the first from 1990 where Drew Norbery orchestrated a set of my songs. I used this as audio for a 30 minute People TV video called Garage Demo, using paintings, drawings, animation, and various video images for visuals. The second DVD/song collaboration was with Kevin Haller (Burning Artist(s) Sale) where Kevin sent me his musical composition and I sorted through my lyrics to find those that fit, sometimes combining several songs. The visuals were similar to Garage Demo - drawings, paintings, political cartoons and imagery I captured with a digital camera & put into iMovie. The following pics are of the wall separating the Inner Gallery from the performance space where I hung 80 song lyric sheets. I used double-sided tape, just as with the political cartoons, choosing 80 because beyond that you'd need a ladder to read'em. There are pics of the performance at

I started writing songs almost as soon as I started studying guitar, having little patience for learning cover songs.
My initial interest was with words though gradually the musical side got interesting too.
