Running at the historic Children’s Arts Carnival, this exhibit taking place at this historic festival sets the record straight on an important component of Visual Afrofuturist history; The Art of Tim Fielder. So much work has gone into making this historic Festival one for the history books. No powder will be left dry, no stone left unturned. More Info to Come!
Greetings Dieselfunkateers! When I’m doing my work, I oftentimes will have a soundtrack handy in Apple Music or on Youtube. However, I only listen to music that serves as a soundtrack for what I’m working on. Matty’s Rocket is a period drama set in the early to mid part of the retro-20th Century. So it helps tremendously to be in the zone. Music helps me do that. My go to is mostly the great John Barry. However, sometimes older music meant for different purposes serves a film better than the original score. The most famous example being the use of classical music for Kubrick’s ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’.
ENTER: Jerry Goldsmith. His ‘ALIEN’ soundtrack is one of the more sinister and elegant musical movements in film history. But of course my prior example applies for that film. The final song used in the first Alien movie was a romantic composition Symphony No. 2 “Romantic”: I. Adagio. It somehow does a brilliant job of signaling Ripley’s escape from the Xenomorph. Yet and still, it also showed a reference for the loss of life of the other crew members as well as the utter loneliness, melancholy, and ADVENTURE, inherent in Great Drama.
Greetings Dieselfunkateers! The wave rises once again. One big thing for me at this time in my life is all about Legacy. MICROSOFT has just released the individualized ad featuring me. Surreal. I’ve been doing my specific branch of Afrofuturism for a long time. So refreshing, validating, and joyful to be individually represented in my workspace. So wonderful to know that while talking about INFINITUM, Matty’s Rocket and my aspirations for my legacy within such a large forum. Thanks to the GREAT Maryam Myika Day for her creative generosity and firm BLK-Ops for their wonderful production.
