previously I posted some live videos of William Rees performing at Spring Street Gallery in Saratoga and mentioned one of his other projects, Curling Hands – a psyche/noise, one man, one electric guitar, many pedals, type of heavy, loud, doom, wall of sound with occasional hard to make out shrieks and screams. Much different from his instrumental, finger picking, acoustic guitar, soar around the country feeling music. He also does stuff with a viola but that’s for another time I suppose…

So here are two clips from his roughly 20 minute performance at Groundzero at RPI in Troy, NY 2/19/13

clip 1

clip 2

Noise legend in his own right, as well as long-time experimental music and sound creator, often using his own homemade contact mics and contraptions, Crank Sturgeon did a performance art/ noise set at the Upstate Artsits Guild (UAG) in Albany, NY right before Halloween (10/30/12).

I was lucky enough to catch the first 7ish minutes of his set on tape but the whole thing was amazing to witness in person: super fun and super interesting.

check him out/ buy one of his mics or something: CrankSturgeon.com

William Rees performs at Spring Street Gallery in Saratoga Springs, NY opening for the great Glenn Jones 2/9/13.

Much of his Rees’s music is greatly influenced, and derives from, living and studying in India (away from his home in upstate, NY).
Vaguely speaking I would consider his music mostly instrumental, acoustic, fingerpicking which reminds me of different places and feelings of nature, peace, freedom, traveling, soaring, and exploring.

Posted are 4 songs (the majority of the set) that i was able to capture in their entirety.

“Flooding the Valley”

“The Mazar of Faiyaz Khan”

“On The Sunny Side of the Ocean”

“The Crane: Its Flight and Return”

Free Download: William Rees – Transcendental Nights

Liam also does more experimental music with electric guitar and pedals under the name Curling Hands which is more heavy, doom-like, psyche noise.

Also, working on a couple projects perhaps for this upcoming year including finishing the Sun Burdens video “Picture Masks,” putting together a version of the entire Dirty Maneuver skate movie for showing at a local gallery, and an unusual short film.

Last month some awesome musicians and friends played a show at Design It Together in Troy, NY 10/19/12.
I was lucky enough to hang out and film with them. Here are a bunch of live footage from the show featuring Sun Burdens, Meagan Duffy (Hand Habits), Birthdays, Little Spoon, and Eternal Crimes (in order of who played).

Hand Habits Meg Duffy solo improv

Sun Burdens “vicious lie”

Birthdays “root chakra”

new song

Little Spoon “This Is How We Do It”

Eternal Crimes
Unfortunately my battery died during the Eternal Crimes set and I didn’t want to post an incomplete video, but it sounded good. Perhaps after their next show I will put something up.
