Asunto: [Zappa-List] Roxy and Elsewhere
Just had this in from Zappa.com
Hello Boys & Girls,
About 10 Years Ago, shortly after Al Gore invented the internet, we here at
UMRK, where we feel it is our duty … decided to announce plans for the Roxy
Performances to be unleashed at last on a wholly suspecting public and others
besides. What We Knew Then compared to What We Know Now about what is possible
is something completely different. I could romanticize and say that over here
at the Other Side of the Miracle of Time & Space there is nothing stopping us
but the Movie Monster. Every Monster Movie has at least one. Our Movie
Monster is THE BUDGET.
Because of the condition the condition was in - no synch, no idea what was
what, no idea of the actual coverage, no idea of the quality; all the et
ceterae that caused FZ to abandon the project completely - it took all this
time (if you include all the other priorities and distractions) to get to this
point, so near and yet so far: All of the footage has now been transferred on
a best light basis into HD and all camera angles have been "synched" by eye and
heart and hand and edit to the original Nagra tapes. We now need to identify
all usable camera angles and begin the actual edit. Still, we have miles to go
in order to bring the best of the possibilities to a screen near you. And we
need your help.
We still have a few wrinkles but our irons are hot and the details of our plan
for the next Official Release is bundled in a unique opportunity to participate
in a special, social experiment designed to open lots of doors for all Artists
and their fans everywhere. Participate and You'll be First. First with your
own copy of a Soundtrack to The Roxy Performances. First with your name
credited in The Roxy Performances, The Movie. And there are more Firsts. Stay
But first, a word from our sponsors. We'll be back with all the relevant
details right after the other Mothers' Day.
Thank you for your kind attention to this matter.
