Loop Painting #10 – Series Complete!!!

Hi Everyone, thanks so much for sticking with me through all this time on here.  It’s been a meaningful endeavor, and I’m absolutely thrilled to be able to try all kinds of things artistically that I probably wouldn’t be able to without your tremendous support!

Loop Painting #10 is done!  I set out to make 10 and now I have.  They got bigger and bigger toward the end.  This one is 15 feet long!  I got to work on it in this really cool space which is springing up called Kaleidoscope Collective here in Rochester.  It’s a huge industrial space that is presently being turned into a tea bar and music venue.  Arthur Gold allowed me to use his space, he even helped me build the frame for my canvas!  My friend Noah Estrella also helped out by shooting video while I ran my camera on automatic stop motion.  It was super fun, and all the beautiful reverb on the recording is naturally occurring in the room.  It was an easy audio mix!  Here are the versions of audio:

As always, please give me your comments, put a heart down there if you love it, and spread the word if you can.  I need more subscribers!!

The art show is tonight! I’ll try and remember to take pics of all the stuff hanging around the room. It’s looking quite nice!

big hugs,

Seth

Loop Painting #9

I’m most happy about this one.  It took a lot of work to get to this level, doing multiple paintings while looping, learning my method for editing and mixing this music and making the video coincide.  My new friend Traci Westcott shot the video footage for this one, and I think it looks great!  Check out her website.  I feel very strongly about this one so will say no more in hopes that you will click the link to watch the video and spread it to all your friends!

Your audio files:

… and remember!  Subscribers get a discount ticket for the art opening on December 1st!!  Next and last Loop Painting is 15 feet long!!!

many many many thanks!

your friend,

Seth

Loop Painting #7

Hi!
Wow!  This month is going to require a lot from me, doing tons of work to finish up my Loop Painting series.  Number 7 and 8 come from the Rochester Fringe Festival in September.  I was happy to be included in it and to get to do some of my experimentation in art and music combined.  
This is a lot of media!  I painted while creating live loops, but in addition to that, I was recording audio and video.  After the fact, I take the audio and turn it into one long, live recording for your ears and a short video with condensed audio for your eyes and ears.
This one sounds great to me.  I’ll be putting out all four of these videos this month!  Such an intense amount of work, but completing this project makes me feel good.  It’s been a great learning experience in all the four realms of art which it involves.
I’d like to offer a discount to any of you who’d like to come out to the Loop Painting Opening December 1st at Photo City Improv here in Rochester;  you get half price entry to the show, which my band Multibird will be playing as well as two other bands!
Big thanks to you all for your continued support.  Onward and upward!
Seth

Seth Sings Soft Songs – He Once Was

Hello everyone,

Today I’m sending you a video of “He Once Was”.  It’s one of my favorite songs to play.  It’s pretty quiet so I don’t often get to play it in live music atmospheres because people tend to enjoy more peppy stuff in live situations.  I wish I could play songs like this at every show, and maybe I should just do it, I don’t know.  My Seth Sings Soft Songs series was a great pleasure and a challenge to me because I compiled all my quiet material into two sets of music.  Performing that way was very foreign to me because I’ve been doing so many band shows or loop shows… stuff like that.  I like being able to have an outlet for this type of music because it really is a big part of my musical personality.

So here’s the VIDEO

and here’s AUDIO ONLY

and here’s the STUDIO RECORDING from my solo album “Doubting Won’t Do”.  I hope you’ll enjoy one or all of these!

The rest of this month will be devoted to scoring out Act 2 of my rock opera, 23 Psaegz.  It’s a huge undertaking!  40 minutes worth of music for multiple instruments… I love doing it though! Composing, writing and improvisation are my favorite things to do right now.  I’m so happy to get to spend this creative time.  It’s just in me, the music, always… I’m just constantly thinking in notes, so to have a vent for all this sound bouncing around inside me is just pure joy.
