The Spirit of ’59

January 25, 2021 12:10 pm Published by

"The Spirit Of '59" is a mixed-media découpage exploration of the days back when music was good. This piece shows footage from when it was built about 10 years ago, as well as more up-to-date imagery (and yet another reference to The Who.)

Seer/Sucker (aka The Illustrated Man’s Guitar)

"Seer/Sucker (aka The Illustrated Man's Guitar)" is a mixed-media découpage exploration of better days in the USA. Taking a bass guitar that was a birthday gift to me from Pat DiNizio of The Smithereens, I set out to relocate it and me to a whole new plane using good ol' paper and paste. There's a story hidden inside - see it in the midst of still photos; time-lapse imagery; frame-by-frame animation, and straight video. I shot the photographs and video using a cheap-o camera, composed & arranged the soundtrack music, and except for John O. on the drums, played all the instruments.

Audio Collage - "dogHeaven" is a black-humor’d live take on Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial, with Stalinist show-trial overtones and a groovy exotic beat. I played all the instruments except the drums (John Orem) and built all the samples.

The Strange Rage of Boris Yeltsin

This piece is a soul-patch'd treatment of 2 bass guitars and obscure samples from a 1960s record collection. I made all the samples, played all the instruments except the drums (John Orem.)

Resolution No. One

ORIGINAL VIDEO: When I constructed this piece I was Influenced by Salvador Dali, Man Ray, Edward Hopper, The Who & others. Resolution No. One reflects brooding mood and intensity, solitude and anonymity. Listen closely to the soundscape: all the water, wind & bird sounds are signals from shortwave and pirate radio stations. (Photography + soundtrack © John Carmody)

Ever heard of the Collyer Brothers? This is a time-lapse rumination on the ruination of pop culture – the discarding and obsolescence of perfectly good media types and content. Un-planned and backwards, this is a complaint about how modern popular culture is garbage, and that generally what was, was better.
