finally worked out my pigeon stop motion video - made into an 8 second loop from 32 pigeon drawing/paintings. my fellow resident, thomas helton, a bassist and composer, generously recorded 6 small improvisational soundings based on my video, which i looped around to complete the visual/audio piece. each one of his compositions is quite different, so depending on which one is played with the video, the entire mood is altered, so important is the sound aspect of this work. unfortunately, my technical abilities are stymied by the prospect of posting the actual video/sound piece on my blog, so instead i am including photos of my wall of pigeons - all of which were used in the video loop and hung for the open studios. will attempt to post the actual video soon.
