I’d prefer to let this video speak for itself. I will say this, I’m very very proud of the giant crew of people involved in the making of this and inspired to no end by the progress we are making as a team over here.
This video is meant to be empowering to the people in a difficult time, bring inspiration to others to not only continue on, but to thrive in the face of adversity.
After this month, leading into April, I am planning on releasing the first 2 minutes of my puppet opera movie. I know 2 minutes doesn’t sound like a lot, but in order to get this stuff up there, I need to record and mix a 10 piece band on music which I’ve previously scored out (see earlier post), then take that music and film my giant puppets, my small hand puppets still need to be made, and the two dimensional painting puppets need to be animated.
To make two minutes will probably take the full month of April, but I’ve been scaling way back on the public performances so have a bit more time.
This is now my priority, so be expecting much from me in this realm. I’m calling this one of my great masterpieces. When it is complete (probably two years down the road if I hit no roadblocks), I will put the full thing together into one singular movie and release it independently, start sending it around to film fests and theaters in order to gain some notoriety for it and potentially take it on the road. The name of this immense project is noneother than 23 Psaegz. I know, a bit confusing, but such is life!

He will be performing a varied cross-section of music spanning his 20 year songwriting career with Dufus / Multibird / Forest Creature / Heck Yup / 23 Psaegz. Seth will also be showing some of his new work involving:
• Live Looping
• Loop Painting
• Soft Songs
• Fresh Cuts written this past year
• Music from his earlier repertoire
• On some special occasions he will even take the time to write and record a brand new song with willing audiences.
Painting? While singing? Singing while painting? Seth brings the vastness of his life’s work seamlessly and effortlessly to the stage, creating an experience for those who are “here for it”. Seth is an artist’s artist. Building a community that huddles together against the storms of modern life and mentoring other artists along the way, Seth brings a verbose and verdant body of work in 2018 that includes new work from his live vocal loop painting series and “Seth Sings Soft Songs” series. Fans can expect old favorites as well as new tunes and that characteristic Seth experience that is at once childlike fun and deeply moving.
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:
For the video, just click on the picture at the top of the page.
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!
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!
I’m excited to give you this wonderful video and some audio files for listening and viewing! I’ll keep this one short, but just know that next week you’ll be getting painting #9 and on December 1st I will finish this 10 painting / video series for you and have the art opening on the same night!!
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.
