About a Day

July 17, 2004. I took a boat upriver to record a group of blind musicians who play look thung  songs near the main temple. I also recorded a man singing unaccompanied (I accidentally recorded over it later, unfortunately). Later in the afternoon I filmed a man playing a pin on a pedestrian crossover—he was wearing a glove on his left hand for some reason. That evening I went to About Café for a musical performance featuring Endjoy (a charmingly insane Japanese singer and a guy on laptop making collaged cartoon mayhem—like Plastic Ono Band 2004), C-drek (Dutch laptop maniac in the vein of Psychic TV and a car crash), and Space Bucha (whose guitarist reminded me of Caspar Brotzman or Richie Blackmore, but more “free” in his playing—a laptop guy who was too high in the mix, and a drummer who bored me with his stiff funk beats).  I recorded this as well, but my mic is crap and it sounds like white noise in the worst of ways.
