1,858 artworks of Adora

It started over 7 years ago as a 365-photo-a-day-type tumblr for my baby daughter, and it keeps propagating. Right now, the best way to see (most of) the 1,858 different artworks of Adora (with a new one coming every day) is on instagram , a massive cache of original illustrations. [more inside]

Psychodelic Sixties

Because I'm 14 going on 45, I decided to get myself a Tumblr page. I mainly just put a lot of general 1960s weirdness on it that interests me.

"An old dad, a young mom"

'Opposites' features 12 musical interpretations of a somehow-biographical song that I wrote together with my daughter.
2 years ago, when my daughter was 4 years old, we started composing little 'songs' together. Since then, we wrote nearly 50 songs, and published one book.

Here are 2 other musical pages: 4 songs as played by Douglas Haines, and 4 songs read in sign language by Koli Cutler.
More than half of our songs had been put to music by musicians from around the world, some of them in multiple styles.

These are parts of the One A Day Project I started when she was born.
There are many similar pages inside.

Today is Adora's 6th birthday. Happy birthday, dear Adora.

The Art is Not The Artist: On Holding Abusers Accountable & Enjoying Problematic Media

This is the thought process I go through when I’m considering the creative output of a horrible individual, and the questions I ask myself about whether I can consume the work in good conscience. [more inside]

Choose Your Sonic Adventure

Tangemeenie is back at work in the studio, producing a new indie pop album planned for a crowd-funded release [draft project - Kickstarter login required] as part of a larger multimedia project in the first half of next year. But before launching the crowd-funding campaign, we're planning to release and promote a single from the album in progress. Now we've assembled five rough mixes/preview clips of candidate singles from the new album into a SoundCloud playlist, and would like you, the listening public, to tell us which track we should release as our first official single. Take a listen, complete the opinion poll, and let us know what you think. We'll announce results after a couple of weeks of voting, once a clear winner emerges.

Same Rat, Different Hat

The debut record from Out of System Transfer, a neo-old-timey band who sing punk-influenced folk songs about the assassination of William McKinley, hitting cops in the head with a brick, and riding the subway. Their sound has been compared to the Holy Modal Rounders, Mojo Nixon, and Mischief Brew. With physical media sales becoming less viable, it made little sense to get CDs printed (plus, no one in the band even had a working CD player), but it also felt wrong to forego the great potential offered by album covers and liner notes, not to mention the feeling of having a tangible thing for fans to have. Thus, the record was released as a zine, (also bundled with the download as a pdf) with original artwork commissioned for each song by various Brooklyn-based artists. [more inside]

Market Music (The stock market as a reggae song)

I have completed a new fun data art project: I translated the ups and downs of the S&P 500 for the year into a reggae-ish song, while an animation represents the data visually and in sync with the music. It's been a record year for the S&P 500 -- and now you can hear it! [more inside]

Grinningest

Unheard of music produced by myself. The elucidation of unreal character spheres. Rudimentary to placate then advanced to renovate

Dig for Fire: Art Inspired by the Pixies

In the late 1980s and early '90s, the Pixies redefined the alt-rock genre with stripped-down tunes, biting lyrics, and an unguarded attitude that inspired bands like Nirvana, Radiohead, and the Strokes, just to name a few. Black Francis, Kim Deal, Joey Santiago, and David Lovering formed the band in Boston, but as is usually the case with music-industry vanguards, the Pixies were originally more successful overseas than in their homeland.

You Are Not Dead: The Book, The Play, The Album, The Fridge Magnets

In 2008, Meg Holle and I released a book and an album to critical acclaim on Metafilter, Stumbleupon, and other aggregators. Since then, this demented Guide To Living combo has been downloaded over 26,000 times, including once by a Vancouver theater company who loved it enough to make it into a play, where representatives of the Fakeproject Corporation teach you how to be Not Dead. The play is going on stage at Vancouver Fringe Festival starting THIS FRIDAY, and is awesome. In honor of this honor, we've completely rebuilt this mind-altering book in online form with new life-mangling exercises, a Real Physical Book to buy, and a set of fridge magnets that will finally express your innermost thoughts, fears, and failures.

A Painting for Win and Regine

My boyfriend is a painter who does life-size portraiture. Inspired by this photo, he made a painting of Win & Regine from Arcade Fire, and would like to give it to them as a gift. I made this little site to publicize our quest.

GLTI.CH Karaoke

is a virtual jukebox oozing with time-delayed, glitchy fun. Streaming live over the web, London and Kumamoto will be joined in a sing off to end all sing offs. The first GLTI.CH KARAOKE event will laugh in the face of the nine hour time difference, of poor bandwidth, bad lip syncing, and terrible foreign language translations. All that matters is that the interwebs keep running and the participants keep on singing. From our first event we will encourage a whole series GLTI.CH Karaoke happenings. Using webstreaming software our eventual aim is to link up multiple cities across the globe for an all-out, Noon til Noon, 24 hour Karaoke marathon. This means we need YOU to help host future events, with all proceeds raised going to The Japan Society Tohoku Earthquake Relief Fund. [more inside]

Art International Radio

Last month, I finished designing a new website for an art gallery and radio station in NYC: Art International Radio (formerly known as WPS1). We've got and oodles oodles of rare and interesting content, interviews, music shows, recordings, performances. Listen to an interview about Fururist noise music boxes called the Intonarumori, or an interview with Jim Jarmusch, Gregg Araki, or Michel Gondry. Listen to Genesis P-Orridge ruminate on life and art, or tune into the latest interviews from the Brooklyn Rail. We've acquired some historic audio tapes, and am digitizing them in the process, so that you can listen to Allen Ginsberg (and his father!) talk together. There's music, too: Listen to a curated show on Minimalist music, a recording of a chiptunes/NES-driven performance, some really great disco/house mixes, a curated selection of contemporary Brazilian music (expect bossa nova!), or a wonderfully John Peel-inspired indie rock show. If you want something more experimental, then you can listen to a series of short radio micro-compositions, cassette-tape-generated noise, industrial percussion music performances. --- And if you're overwhelmed, check out the AIR stream, and just sit back and listen...

Dym: Swarm cover art

I recently completed artwork for my friends' new EP. It's a pretty complex photo collage, mostly of pictures that I took myself. The link above goes to Deathwatch Asia, where the EP version with my art is being released. You can go here to see the whole booklet, as well as the collages without text. If you like your music crunchy, give them a listen, they're pretty great.
