Rubblebucket - L'homme Music Video Premiere

Rubblebucket - "L'homme" from Consequence of Sound on Vimeo.

So I recently directed a music video for Rubblebucket's single "L'Homme" off their new album Omega La La.

It dropped today (8/1/11) on music blog Consequence of Sound.

Heres a blurb we wrote to explain it:

The L'homme music video for Rubblebucket, (literally translated as
"The Man") engages the audience in a hypothetical reversal of power by
eroticising the image of big brother and reimagining him as a
beautiful man. Originally conceived as a tryptich for live
performance, 3 performance artists were filmed making gestures at the
camera. Recontextualizing these images for the music video, they
were then processed, scratched, glitched and rescanned in real-time
using custom video processing system designed by video artist/director
Eric Barry Drasin. Combined with footage later shot of lead singer
Kalmia Traver, Drasin weaves a psychadelic landscape that playfully
pokes fun at power relations between the watcher and the watched.

Featuring Performances by:

Jesse Super Levy of the Levites,
David M. Kline
Ian Fishman
Kalmia Traver (Rubblebucket)

Cinematography by:
Scott Schweizer
Sidharta Pascual
Benton-C Bainbridge

Makeup Design:
Abby Weg

Simultaneous Invocation

Simultaneous Invocation is a piece I'm working on right now. It is going to be a series of audiovisual works that are going to be performed live. The invocation both references the world to be created and how the world creates me.

Random Photo's 2009

From Blogger Pictures

So I finally got a card reader for my camera so I can look at some of the pictures I took in 2009. There wasn't much but I did document an installation I did at school that I think I posted about earlier. This is from Psyborg Psalms.

And here I have some photos from when my good friend Pete St. John helped me make a loft bed in his awesome woodshop. Pete's an incredible dude, having started a business doing mold remediation, he does amazing woodwork on the side, literally building everything in his apartment. And NOW he's starting a biodiesel company! In this picture I am doing something really impressive looking with some kind of tool that makes sparks.

Heres a picture of the completed bed which I don't own anymore because I moved out of the House of Love.

hopefully in 2010 I will do a better job of documenting my existence!!!

Cameron Wisch and Eric Barry Drasin @ Silent Barn 6/23/09

Cameron and myself were doing a show that involved projecting into a fog machine in Cam's bass drum while we had a live camera processing the audience waving around glowsticks and then being run through audioreactive filters on my computer.
