I've posted another video on You Tube -- it can be seen at
The music for Improvisation/Construction # 1 was performed by Jacob
William, Forbes Graham and Kevin Frenette (The "JFK Trio", my name
for them) at Outpost 186 in Cambridge on June 26, 2011. I attended
that concert, and took a lot of video footage of the performers.
Kevin gave me a recording of the set, and I selected a section and
constructed the video by processing footage from the show and
combining the footage with other imagery from my library. I used a
lot of footage of mist, taken from the back deck of the family
I made no attempt to synchronize the concert footage with the audio
-- though I did try to match the musicians shown at any time with
those can be heard on the soundtrack. I did make a conscious decision
to always show one or more of the musicians throughout the piece.
This is my first effort at using this particular visual music
structure, and I would very much appreciate feedback, especially
concerning the pacing and the decision to use footage from the
concert for the entire piece.
