AUTHORLESS: a musical project losing its identity


The Authorless Project offers 10 song demos by Stargrazer.  It is the proposal of The Authorless Project that interested musicians, writers, and recording artists of all genres, ages, and backgrounds treat these "root" demos as if they were their own:  free reign is given to re-record, rearrange, re-write or re-mix the root demos. 

ROUND ONE:  In the first round of Authorless, these ten demos will be distributed to ten musicians of all stripes and experience.  These first-rounders are free to re-record – or even re-write – any or all of the songs.  They can focus on just one song, split songs into more than one song, or combine songs.  They are free to "cover" a song in their own style – or to work with only the existing root recordings.  They're welcome to mix-and-match, cut-and-paste, stir, augment, fracture or alter the entire context of the song (or songs).  It can become a string quartet or black metal.  It can be deconstructed into obscurity, or lovingly/roughly translated into any mood(s) that suits the participants.  Heck, you can turn an instrumental into spoken word if you want! 

The catch is, you only have two months to complete your part of the project.  If you don't have the time, just aren't feeling it, or don't want to participate for any reason, just pass the root demos along to someone else. 

ROUND TWO:  After the first sixty days, our next round begins.  Round One picks whomever they want to be in Round Two.  The new recordings and all the root demos are passed on to the next set of authors, and the same rules apply:  Anything goes.  Preserve the song, augment someone's ideas, or mutate it.  After another sixty days, all the results, plus the results of round one and the root demos, are passed on to the Round Three participants.

ROUND THREE – ROUND SIX: Same as the preceding rounds.

ROUND SEVEN:  All recordings from rounds 1-6, plus the original root demos, are sent to Satellite Park Studios for Paul Roessler (The Screamers/Nina Hagen/45 Grave/and tons of fine SST Bands) to sort through, mix, add and subtract from, and finally master into the final "Authorless" album.  Who knows what amazing forms these little seedling songs will grow into?

Artwork by Travis Pickard has been licensed to augment the final AUTHORLESS recordings.

To participate in ROUND ONE of AUTHORLESS, contact Peter at:  stargrazer {at} gmail {dotcom}.  ROUND ONE begins July 1, 2008.

hello friends,
artists in antwerp are losing room to move every day, please share your wisdom and dreams at

Dear friend of de muziekdoos
The first 'tmuziekdooscollectief meeting was a success, there was music, brainstorming, wine...
onboard were Frank, Jef, Jan, Inneke23, Stafke, Wim and Karo, Hans and Lieve. also a quick cameo by Etienne
Thanks to all for showing up!

This is what we came up with after several bottles of wine and lots of gracious sounds:

The general idea
• Keep the muziekdoos spirit alive – a place where there are instruments, amps, where everyone can come and play/jam/rehearse/experiment and maybe most importantly, meet likeminded people.
• Convince people of the importance of this muziekdoos-spirit if we want to keep real honest music alive. A place-to-be for musicians, poëts and other creative minds and friends. Cross pollination at its best.
• MySpace will be used to promote our ideas, announce upcoming events, find contacts and supporters, post pictures, movies, art, poetry, etc
• A mobile acoustic setup is a temporary solution to keep this spirit alive. This setup could move to different locations and ideally, Etienne could be there too to play his wonderful tunes, serve the drinks and give usefull/useless comments on the live music : ) If the weather is fine, this location can be outdoors (we allready baptised the boarders of the scheldt at the sint-michielsstraat)
• Organize larger events (mini festivals) on different locations where bands can perform and a free podium is available. Get festival promotors/sponsors involved.
• Make a presentation that clearly outlines our plan and try to involve the culture department of Antwerp.
• Search a VZW that wants to be involved in organising events for us. (Creating a VZW ourselves is not a good plan).

• We also will continue to collect money with the mobiele muziekdoos to help Etienne to pay the state.
This about rounds up what was discussed and what 'tmuziekdooscollectief stands for.

spring is in the air

Ann Arbor, MI, March 9 -19, 2007
Entity, the University of Michigan’s premiere digital arts coalition, invites you to attend SYNC 07, an annual Multimedia Digital Arts Festival occurring March 9 th through the 19 th at the Duderstadt Center on the University of Michigan north campus. The festival features cutting edge works and performances that find a point of union between art and technology, and are offered in a range of mediums from digital painting, photography and animation, to installation and multimedia performance.
New technologies offer us increasing opportunities to explore artistic intentions and can provide us with new insights into both the art we experience and the world at large. SYNC 07 takes this as a new frontier in the aesthetic encounter and adopts this as the unifying theme that will bring together artists and thinkers for several days at the beginning of March.

As the discipline of digital arts enters its adolescence a more diverse group of artists are trying their hands at expressing themselves with the aid of ones and zeros. This year's SYNC 07 Digital Arts Festival will display some of the best cutting edge talent in the area. From March 9th to the 19th the Duderstadt Gallery will be home to video, audio, 2d and 3d art - all either created by digital means or commenting on the increasingly digitized space in which we dwell. This year's show will highlight a diverse sampling of the endless possibilities the digital realm has to offer.

The Gallery Opening will be held on Friday March 9 th , from 5:00pm to 7:00pm

The schedule of performances is as follows: (all performances start at 7:00 p.m. and are held in the Video Studio in the Duderstadt Center)

Mar. 9 th :

Bubblegone ( crafts an improvisational web of audio and projected video that is a reflection of humans as living beings taking in stimuli, processing it, and re-experiencing it throughout their lives.
bill van loo & j. schnable ( released their first collaborative album, "Raindays," a three year effort accomplished during spare moments of inspiration and cross-country visits. Both vivid and introspective, the songs are balanced with an energy that doesn't explode, but blossoms and slowly emerges in unexpected ways. Their live performance expands on the groundwork of the recorded material through improvisational rhythms and melodies.  Live visuals provided by Jon Hudson.
My Dear Disco: Dancethink Music ( combines exotic instruments such as Uilleann Pipes (Irish bagpipes) and Didjeridoo along with live laptops, synthesizers, vocals, saxophones, electric guitars, bass, and electro-acoustic drums. They’re pushing the boundaries of dance music by giving the audience a highly dynamic show where each original song has its own distinct, highly composed and thought-out identity.  Live visuals by VJ Techno Vision.
Mar 10 th :

The Betamales ( Ian Fulcher (of Hot Meat for Young Lovers and Drafted by Minotaurs on trumpet, various inputs, trashpedals) Vince Swain (of Dabenport on guitar, effects) and Paul Bancel (of The Riots on Drums) perform abstract, ambient noise soundscapes to short silent films.


de • fenestra: ( will feature Elijah Church (tabletop guitar, sheng, wood flutes), John Wolf Mcintyre (theremin and harmonium) and Will Soderberg (laptop, signal processing, midi guitar) performing live improvised electronic music with projected video accompaniment. ( reshapes reality by deconstructing and reassembling the world around them to create new understandings and new levels of communication. The simultaneous combination of technology, media, and movement in their live performances and recorded projects drives home the true meaning of seamless integration.  They will be joined by nationally renowned sculptor Steve Baibak, and performing artist Natalie Winans.

dancing with a tapatio band in guadalajara

Saludos y Besos to the OCC community. . . .

I just got back from Guadalajara, Mexico, a beautiful city with a happening music/arts/dance scene . . . I spent two weeks teaching classes, doing TV and radio interviews (yes, in Spanish!), and doing shows. 

I thought you might enjoy hearing some of the music by the cool Mexican band, Tragicomi-k  that I did a gig with.  They are rock-ish, and they use an array of Arabic and Persian drums in addition to Western percussion instruments.  They also have a kick-ass dancer, Amanda Morales who does flamenco, and she and I danced together with the band . . .I have to say it was pretty awesome . . . .we'll definitely be doing more together!   :)

Here's Tragicomi-k's myspace link:

And here's a link to a band that I'll be working with on my next trip, Chango Marrango:

I'm in the process of updating my website with pictures from Mexico, and a video of the piece I did with Tragicomi-K and Amanda . . . visit us at  . . .

Love and peace,

The Little Bang Theory


FRANK PAHL ( is one of the most distinctive and charming voices in contemporary American music. He has received numerous awards, grants, and residencies for his innovative compositions using homemade automatic instruments. Inspired by the works of Trimpin and Pierre Bastien, Pahl began to delve deeply into the creation of automatic instruments, using these instruments as the fundamental foundation of his compositions. His work has included pieces for automatic string quartet, automatic doorbell quartet, and bicycle quartet. Pahl has received over 60 commissions for theater, film and dance and his music appears on over 60 releases. His latest band, Little Bang Theory, is named after the essay of the same title by the improvising musician Frederic Rzewski. Rzewski describes an approach to music well suited to improvisation. Basically each note can be seen as a little bang, with the possibility of introducing a new universe of music. Though the band performs on toy instruments the music runs the gamut from improvisation to toypop to soundtrack-inspired music...not easy to to see. Toy Suite #2 was made possible by a 2005 Meet the Composer grant.

Frank Pahl's Little Bang Theory with special guest Nick Schillace.
Sunday, November 13 at the University of Michigan Museum of Art
8pm - Free!
This show is sponsered by UMMA and WCBN.

NICK SCHILLACE ( is a Detroit area composer, teacher, and musicologist exploring what it means to be an American musician. In 2002 he completed a graduate thesis on the late guitarist John Fahey, and utilizes Fahey's self-described style of syncopated "American Primitive" fingerstyle guitar as the foundation for his own technique. This style, based on early forms of blues, folk, and old-time music, provides the perfect foundation for larger and more expansive musical compositions incorporating a wide range of his own idiosyncratic influences. He has been touring extensively both locally and nationally since releasing his debut acoustic instrumental album "Box Canyon" in June 2005. He also writes and performs with the groups indoorpark and Big Lake Trawler.

"Box Canyon is a collection of nine pensive and frequently
beautifully played songs for acoustic guitar"

Independent Music Sought

It Takes A Village To Make Records, an independently-run music label, seeks tracks for an upcoming, FREE sampler of independent music and soundscapes. ITAV specializes in unique, handcrafted recordings, a hands-off approach to creative control and copyright ownership, and visually stunning graphic design and packaging. ITAV releases are designed to grab potential purchasers from across a room and draw them to your music.

"First-hand Accounts, Theories, and their Repercussions" will act as a calling card for ITAV, rather than a label roster compilation. In that spirit, ITAV seeks music of all forms, from traditional folk to noise. Additionally, songs which demonstrate a strong independent vein are desired, whether that is shown by experimental qualities or simply by the song's lack of slickness. "First-hand Accounts" will contain live tracks, demos and/or alternate versions and home recordings. Tracks are sought from all types of artists, famous or unknown.

Artists will retain full rights to their music. "First-hand Accounts" will be distributed FREE as an educational tool and an example of ITAV's creative expertise. For that reason, ITAV cannot offer compensation for your track, however full credits will be included in the packaging, including songwriting credits, "appears courtesy of..." messages, and/or internet resources.

ITAV is cultivating a diverse artist base for this project and for their emerging catalog. For more information and to submit your tracks, contact
