Short Cuts – 40 Improvisations.
Here’s a teaser for a new video with music from our Short Cuts sessions. Track #10 – a high wire. Animation by David Cain. More to come…
WCG brings together worlds of styles and inspirations into moments of reality. It’s music for people who love to live an adventure through music, and dream through sound. ““Original and visionary music from original and visionary musicians” S. Victor Aaron
Life. Music. Are all a series of Conversations. Paul Wertico, David Cain & Larry Gray discuss their new album, REALIZATION, and share insights about spontaneous music, improvisation, collaboration, recording, tradition, new technology… (recorded at the Jazz Showcase, Chicago, December 5, 2015)
Sound Portraits visually represents our spontaneous musical offerings. At the beginning of the post-production process, Paul and I discussed the fact that live concert video from a spontaneous group effort is not well represented via traditional forms, which favor director/editor cutting techniques, because this method forsakes some of the the magic moments of the trio performance lost in the cuts. So we decided to create a visual composition that captures the majority of our group effort (exceptions being the removal of unusable footage), and thereby allows the viewer to be the director; ultimately, the viewer chooses what to see. My choices for video compositing, special FX, and color-grading were attempts to create a “painting” of the experience, from which Paul came up with the project title, Sound Portraits.
