building on the crimethinc post i just made, i figured i would post about my initial connection to that organization. for those not familiar with this project it's easily one of the coolest things i've ever been involved with. in the summer of 2001 i had a lot of free time (and a bad haircut) and i emailed my favorite artists, promising my talents to their efforts. after learning i could edit video, loved music and could tinker, mark dixon invited me to be locked in a room for two weeks with a car for the purpose of turning it into musical instruments. we we're joined by eric nugent, etta cetera and steven tesh, food, water and tools and we made a ton of awesome instruments.
the original website (hat tip to the wayback machine) is here.
eric's got a little site on it here.
mark's new band is here.
anyway here's the video of the project... it's almost a half hour and it's in three parts. very entertaining, i'm told.
