August 1, 2009

I just returned from the third annual Whiteaker Block Party; I’m glowing from the happiness of the crowd, and my legs are sore from dancing nonstop for hours.  You can check-out my Flickr media by clicking here.

La Jetée

February 9, 2009

I found Chris Marker’s early film “La Jetée” on YouTube. This short 26-minute film is the inspiration for Terry Gilliam’s “Twelve Monkeys.” Although “La Jetée” was made in 1962, its narrative technique feels very ahead of its time. The entire film is constructed from still photographs, sound effects, and narration. Without using moving images, Chris Marker tells a profound story of memory, loss, and love.

This weekend, I discovered the films of Chris Marker.  His film “Sans Soleil” is most certainly a work of genius, and I look forward to working my way through his other titles.  Anyway, here are some Chris Marker related links:

Here are two tracks I recorded with GarageBand. The first track is a multi-track project, with some mixed-in ambient sounds I captured at a festival in Oregon.
