"Yelling Theatre! in a Crowded Fire" (The new MUTAYTOR cover)
It's been two years since the band MUTAYTOR put out a new CD
Last Sunday was the listening party where Buck and Atom trotted out the new mix for the band and friends to listen to
On the last two tracks a very tired artist who was leaving for Pittsburgh in just a few hours and still hadn't packed came out and created the cover live
This is it
The idea to do it this way was struck less than a week before and in the creation, it pushed me deeper than I had gone in both time and technique. Every image (there are seven composited in) where shot on Polaroid 55 film in a bellows camera older than me by many years
I built the panel in 2 days and the final gluing of the images was completed about 8AM the day of the performance. I left for the airport about 3 hours later...
I am quite proud of this one...and of them. It's their best CD to date.
