Holiday Party
at Matt & Michelle’s

Mustard-In-Law played our first out of town gig for a holiday get-together at Matthew Crowe’s house outside Indianola, Iowa.  Matt ordered up a hot slice with extra mustard, and specially requested that we do a two-hour set including the chef’s entire range of select dipping sauces. We were able to stretch our legs’ ears, and we thought it was the best thing we’ve done in front of other people. If you didn’t catch the whole thing in person, here’s the line-in audio. Warning: may cause enchanted brain syndrome, leaky dream sequence, or discrete bowel malfunction.

Mustard-In-Law
film & performance


At 6pm on August 16, 2016, we hit record on the video camera and proceeded to film a battery of prepared visual stations without stopping the recording until the 30 minute mark. At 9pm, we arrived at the Governor’s Mansion and set up our sound equipment facing a blank wall. Using the projector on the camera, we splashed the recording from earlier onto the wall. All of the sound was improvised live while watching the film. The audience gathered behind us, able to see both the projection and what we were doing with our hands.

BBJr at F∆UST
Mission Creek

Bob Bucko asked me to provide visual accompaniment to his audio performance at Gabe’s, opening for F∆UST (yes, that says F∆UST!) during Mission Creek (officially it was the first show in the week’s events), in Iowa City.

This is the aftermath of FAUST’s set.  On the ground next to the cement mixer, you can see the jackhammer that shook the ground beneath us as the acid took hold. I witnessed a billion boiling births, and the secret sleep cycle of every plant and insect was revealed to me, foisted (Fausted?!) upon my weary mind in a ritual of spiritual elopement.

Salon

The Dubuque Area Arts Collective invited me to do “something interactive” at the reception for their annual 60-artist exhibition, SALON.  What I came up with was “video portraits” – instant manipulations of a live camera feed showing reception attendees.  Here are some screenshots..

Live Free & Improvise Free-er

Curt Oren has a monthly improvisational evening at the Trumpet Blossom, in Iowa City. He asked I/OWAR to do some improvised projections at the October event.

livefree

===================================
The Iowa City FREE Improvised Art Series is back for the third installment, with all new improvisers including some fantastic musicians from OUT OF TOWN.

Opening the performances will be a saxophone trio consisting of series curator and local drunken cheese eater Curt Oren, area legend/wolfman Pete Balestrieri and Topher Dunlap, resident of Schmidt Artist Lofts in St. Paul, Minnesota.

While this music is being performed, Sean Thomas Boyt, Iowa City dancer extraordinaire, will be improvising choreography on the Trumpet Blossom stage.

Next the volume gets turned up as Joe Heurmann, Kyle Arthur Miller, and Cory Healey join forces to join your eardrums to your stomach. Cory is a world class (literally, if you only count North America and Europe!) drummer out of Minneapolis, and has played extensively in the Free Jazz scenes of New York City, Chicago, and the Twin Cities. Some of his most recent gigs include playing a teen beauty pageant and monster truck rally with country/western band The Farmer’s Daughters

While all of this is happening, Jay Schleidt and friends will be performing completely improvised video projections all over the walls of Trumpet Blossom, creating a complete aural/visual experience wherever you’re seated. Prepare yourselves.

This is going to be an experience unlike any other, and will never be repeated again!!!! Come see what the Iowa City arts scene is capable of in the best venue in town, FOR FREE.

Speaking of free, did you know gas is very expensive, the Twin Cities are far away, and Cory and Topher are both full time gigging musicians that deserve to be paid well for their amazing work? We’ll be passing a donation jar around to help them make this trip financially viable, as well as to thank them for sharing their music with us! $5 would go so much farther than you think to help them keep doing their thing, and would be very, very appreciated.

SUPPORT THE ARTS. SUPPORT AMAZING LOCAL BUSINESSES. COME.

p.s in order to keep this event all ages, it MUST be done before 10, which means we’re starting this on time whether you show up or not! SO SHOW UP ON TIME.

How Do You PS1?

How do you PS1? is an open house for the area’s most mysterious arts, music, production, and presentation venue. You can expect: open studios for our resident artists, inflatables from our public projects team, information dispersed about how the community can utilize our enigmatic structure (ANSWERS!) as well as our traditionally untraditional entertainment standards such as comedy improv from Paperback Rhino (a 20 minute teaser set at 8pm!), an audio/video installation from Jay Schleidt & Tom Buckholz, a closing reception for So Young Gupton’s hope•less installation, and some cardistry from JR Martins. Part fundraiser (we may ask for a buck or two), part information fair. All celebration.

Didn’t get a picture or recording during our installation.
\This shot was taken afterward, while JR was doing cardistry.

Abe Undent performance

KBD flyer

My first performance as Abe Undent.  I used remote controlled power switches to create a 3D sound environment, which I moved through and manipulated tape players, microtapes, reel to reels, a record player, a microphone / loop pedal, and a digital recorder, while the audience sat at a long table eating Indian food, and my projections splattered the wall and ceiling.
