New site, new blog, bye bye blogspot!

So i finally got around to doing a proper overhaul of my main web site, and in doing so have reintegrated my blogs back into the site there. So unless I find a way to slave it to the one on my site I won't be using this blogspot bog anymore. Follow my latest CH0 posts here from now on.

Penciling and inking on a hot summer's day to the fine tunes of WFMU

A workvlog drawing clip thingy by Salgood Sam

Time lapsed footage of me penciling and inking - This art is for a short film project. The story of Adolf Busch, "One Good German" chronicles his last three months in Germany before first leaving by choice, and then being exiled as a trator. It's being directed by James Murdoch, and will air on Bravo when completed! Very cool. The real sound track will be from a new album of Busch and Walter Brauntfels work, "Two Roads to Exile". Recorded by the ARC.

Here's my flicker work set for the project

the ARC CD
The composers

Nope, that's not Bach in the background !
[ don't worry James! I'll post some completed stuff with samples of the album. ]

When i recorded this the sound of my AC dominated the raw file, and i ran the footage 8x normal speed in places so could not use the ambient sound, but this really was the podcast/radio show i was listening to while doing the work. Have listened to a lot of Busch lately but not what i'm used to drawing with.

Rather, it's more likely to be Downtown Soulville with Mr. Fine Wine. Plays on air in New York fridays and online all week long! Wanted to give them a nod and tell anyone watching this to check out their programing. Awesome.

pussycats rather than pigs

Ok, fair warning! This is a mash up experiment -- an old radio doc about soft drug dealers mixed with vid from a drive to Windsor ont new years eve 1999. It's more interesting than good, but i like it. Created with an old VCR, my camera as a source for the vid, and two beat boxes daisy chained to allow me to mix three audio sources. Very low-fi stuff. The audio comes from an old CBC radio doc, one of the 'dealers' is my father.

This is CH ZERO

The name comes from the song. CH ZERO was first called Signal to Noise, but after a while I decided to change that and CH 0 was born.

Though there are some commonalities, It has nothing directly to do with this channel zero, or this one, though both are cool ;).

For 7 years on CIUT 89.5 fm, I produced and co-hosted the show. We had a series of in-house troupes doing radio plays, spoken word performances, and sketch comedy.

I played with sampling on my old mac LC [it still works!], and mixed live using 2 turntables, 2 tape decks, & 2 CD players running material taken randomly from the library or pre-recorded to tape.

It was a fun show, I enjoyed my time on it! But like many things that become routine, after 7 yrs I decided it was time for a change.

Recently the bug has been nipping at me, but I still don't want to be locked into a schedule. Along comes POD CASTING. Well damn. That's just about right.

So CH ZERO is reborn....
