Fresh work on PATREON!!

Art-work is my lifestyle.
For most of of my career, I’ve been writing, recording, touring and composing as an independent artist, acting as booking agent, promoter, designer, engineer, secretary… and the list goes on. The work keeps me going.  The drive to create keeps me working.  If you subscribe on Patreon to my work, you’ll get insider vlogs, monthly song downloads and video releases as they are completed… before the general public.  Plus you get a look at what it’s like to be a DIY artist, up close and personal, from my home to yours.  Exclusive Faergolzia!

Loop Painting #3 – live performance

Thank you all for subscribing! You’re so amazing, helping me accomplish dreams. I really like the way this one turned out. It was my first time ever doing a live loop painting… oh, besides one time at a house show in Frankfurt, Germany, but somehow this one was more formal. I made a plan to make the painting and loop simultaneously in front of humans! It was wild and nerve wracking, but I made it through. All the music was completely improvised and the painting was not pre-planned. It took about an hour. The video you’re getting is all that boiled down to under 4 minutes ( i think), and down below this paragraph you can get a longer version of just audio. Both are really cool. I hope you dig.

This month I plan on definitely and for sure releasing the GARBAGE NIGHT video! It’s been many months in the works, and I think you’ll all love it! Besides that we’re having a big event at Anthology here in Rochester, an all day festival sort of thing raising money and awareness for causes I believe in! Yay!

A Drawing and a Song

I realized I could make a sort of stop motion video if I set my camera to rapid fire with enough time for my hand to get on and off the screen before the next shot.  I drew this picture in 1020 strokes!  Each stroke was between 4 second shots on the camera.  I then put it all into the program I use for video editing, shrunk it down to one minute, repeated it twice with effect tweaks and put my song “Stars On the Pavement” on it.  It took quite a bit more work than expected, but every time I do something new, I learn something new!!  That’s the spirit of innovation!!  I hope you’ll all enjoy!

NEW VIDEO – House Show

Been a lot of work to put this pretty thing together.  It gives me a smile almost all the way through just to see the joy in peoples’ faces and the fun stuff that got captured in these few short sessions of filming live performances at Meddlesome Lab.  I’ve been helping to run shows at that place for nearly 10 years now, so this song certainly has a special place in my heart.  I hope you will watch the video and glean just a bit of the cultural enrichment I’ve been blessed to recieve through such a space.  Thanks to all my subscribers for making this sort of thing possible.  I think the videos are only going to improve as I learn how to use my camera properly and get better at editing and animation!

Song #47 – Call To Action

I originally intended for this song to be donated to the Bernie Sanders campaign.  I am a big fan of his and am proud to have organized two fundraisers here in Rochester, one at the Historic German House and one at Anthology, both having raised enough money to open a campaign office.  Both also brought a ton of people together… firstly, I got to pull all of my favorite Rochester artists together for truly inspiring evenings, but we also pulled together with a ton of activists, artists and open minded forward thinkers for two truly revolutionary events.  I was a bit bummed he didn’t get the nomination, but the system is quite corrupt, as we all know.  I haven’t given up, and I’m glad Bernie hasn’t either!  He’s definitely inspired a ton of people of all ages and backgrounds to get involved in the political process, and that is where the true change will occur.

Below are the lyrics and chords for this song in case anyone wishes to know it more intimately than a simple listen.

D – A – D – Bmin – D – A – G

A call to action I’m making
This time we will take to the sky
That’s it I’m sure we can make it
The devil just spit in my eye

I laughed as he tore off his diaper
Collapsed himself into the fold, a folded wrapper
He laughed at the candy I’d eaten
Collapsed himself into the fold

D – Bmin

Bodies wiggling up and down
With your belly tumbling over
Bodies wiggling all around
With then your hands waving over, run
Then stop on a dime and turn
I figured it’s time that you learned
This is a call to action
Action does not require a gun

D – A – D – Bmin

That’s it I’m sure we can make it
That’s it I’m sure we can make it
That’s it I’m sure we can make it one day

D – A – D – Bmin – D – A – G

A different flavor where cleverly people enjoy living life
They speak their favorite tongues with a lust for more
Look in their eyes!
They’re wild for the fullest and greatest
To live each day better than truth
A look at the newness of sameness
So different from back in their youth

D – Bmin

Bodies wiggling up and down
With your belly tumbling over
Bodies wiggling all around
With then your hands waving over, run
Then stop on a dime and turn
I figured it’s time that you learned
This is a call to action
Action does not require a gun

D – A – D – Bmin

That’s it I’m sure we can make it
That’s it I’m sure we can make it
That’s it I’m sure we can make it home

F#min – A – D

I finally sold myself for the right price
Baby gets a bonnet and a pocket full of money
I finally sold myself for the right price
Baby gets a bonnet and a pocket full of money
I finally sold myself, now I’m feeling nice
Living in the way I want doing what I like
I found the universe robbed all of my time away
I felt me get all busy
Forgot to pay attention
Was in detention for the mention of a system wrench
I sorta pissed on it, and it pissed them off

Bmin – F#min

D – Bmin

Bodies wiggling up and down
With your belly tumbling over
Bodies wiggling all around
With then your hands waving over, run
Then stop on a dime and turn
I figured it’s time that you learned
This is a call to action
Action does not require a gun
Does not require a gun, son

Bmin – F#min

 

In addition to finishing up these songs, I’ve been researching and getting new gear for video making!!  I’ve just ordered an awesome new camera and intend to begin really working hard on videos and short films in the coming months!!

As always, thanks a ton for your subscription support!  Things are really going to start rolling around here in the coming month or so… I’ll keep you updated first!!

Tons of thanks and hugs, Seth
