OFFICIAL VIDEO for “Garbage Night” (certain to bring a smile to your face)
Wow, this has been a long time coming! We’ve finally finished the music video for Garbage Night!! It’s one I started work on almost a year ago with my friend, videographer Alex Freeman. He’s won countless awards here in Rochester for his fine work. Alex was a pleasure to work with, and he and I plan on bringing more and more videos to you in this manner. It’s really satisfying to finally give this to you! We’re keeping it private for Patrons only right now and will most likely be releasing it out into the world in about a month so please do not share it, but do invite friends to subscribe. I’ve made it my goal to get up to 100 subscribers by the end of May!
Here’s a link to the song if you’d like to DOWNLOAD AUDIO
… and here’s a link to the PERCUSSION ONLY VERSION
The percussion is also really cool because all the instruments were found metal pieces from garbage picking. After finding all these cool pieces of metal that made nice sounds, my daughter and I sampled them and put them into a sequencer so that I could make electronic music out of it!
My daughter and her best friend are in this video quite a bit. From the time my little girl could talk, she was always fascinated with finding “treasure” on the street, be it a bead or an old broken toy or a sparkle, she was always picking things up, just like her father before her, just like his mother before him. Three generations of people who love to dig around in other peoples’ refuse to find things which are still of use.
It’s my opinion that we are creating too much waste in this world. We have so much stuff, just piling up in our homes. Everyone has a pile of plastic bags. We’ve got useless things, or single use things stacking on top of each other on our shelves, shoved in cellars, piled in attics. People pay money for things they could easily find, or they buy it new though they could easily find the same thing used at a thrift store. I’ve always loved creating art using junk I found on the street. Building cool looking things at no cost but the labor.
When I was a kid (as the story goes in the song) I really did collect a bunch of electronics and put them all into a foot locker, connected them all and plugged them in. It is a fond memory. I loved that machine I built. I feel like that was the start of my creative drive, a turning point in my life.
Anyway, I hope you will love this video so much you’ll click “like”, make comments, and spread the word about this Patreon page. I need more subscribers to really make it work, and the only way I seem to be able to get them is if the word of mouth grows.
Thanks piles for your support. It means a ton to me that you would put your hard earned money in as support to my art. I’ll take it as far as I can!!
