Around 1970’s in Moscow, Andrei Tarkovsky was asked the question about an interest in creating abstract films. His response was there can be no such thing.

The first music festival I ever went to was Lalapolooza ’91. I was 16 years old metal punker living in Cary, North Carolina. I never saw so many punks, freaks like me at one event – even, I … Continue reading Roadburn Festival: Two Decades of a Sonic Atom in Transmission……

From what I have read, the authors Shane and Julia give contrasting personal recollections from their childhood about cinema’s impact on their lives.

Hence, whenever the term ‘Post-‘ is applied in art, music and film it usually refers to ‘after‘ or ‘in between periods.’ I am certain theorists – in this paradigm – are churning the preverbial engine to get their scholarly journals, books, and symposium in circulation to render a clear definition of … Continue reading Lights, Camera, & Sound: Post-Cinema, a Movement, Genre or Neo-Paradigm?

To understand a human’s path, you have to discover his passion. Blissful thinking is such a lucid sensiblity. I was just walking around downtown San Jose in its freeze dried pandemic state, excuse for not using the word COVID for its a dirty word. I saw this gentle man sleeping in the 60 plus degree temperature in the doorway of a building. What I saw … Continue reading Photogenic Interlude: Blissful Thinking
On March 5th of this month, I was lucky, and healthy enough, to go out on a photo excursion nearby at Los Gatos Creek County Park. It’s a nice little nature reserve less than 10 minutes away from where I live here in Nor Cal city of San Jose. I have been meaning to get in some time to work on my photography starting with … Continue reading Photogenic Interludes: Olympus OM-1N Photojournal #1
H.A.K.M. the song is a drone piece developed during my nomadic state of creativity and construction of H.A.K.M. project.
