I hear tell local rock band SQUARE PEOPLE just put the finishing touches on a new tell-all documentary: Square People: Mysteries and Secrets Unzipped. I know this because my roommate is Square People’s drummer and they shot said-video at my house while I was fighting off a stomach virus and painting the kitchen. Overall, a chill evening. Except for the 12 people in my living room, playing Grand Theft Auto while they waited for the next setup.

Alas, we must suffer for great art. Come see the movie premiere, Saturday, February 18th at Noa Noa (house). You may even spot a certain blogger in a cameo roll as an over-excited keyboardist.

The Facebook event page says, “Part performance feature, part biopic, part etc., SP:MSU is a thirty-minute, in-depth look at the band’s history and future… and now. Presented in startling high definition.”

The movie was shot by Drew Maynard, kick-ass local director who recently edited this gem. Square People frontman Chris Murray handled the editing duties.

My solo scoop & loop project ADVENTURE BOMB kicks off the show at 8:30. The film is at 9pm, followed by LESLIE KEFFER and 84001. All in all, an evening of mirth and mayhem.

Robbie Hunsinger live at Betty's

 
Here are some images from April 2nd’s Betty’s concert, featuring Robbie Hunsinger, Prince Howard (William Davis), and Adventure Bomb (my new solo project.) Craig Schenker played sax on the first two sets. I recorded my set, but unfortunately, the recording is clippy and unusable. 🙁

Special thanks to Tommy for taking all the pics of Prince Howard and me!

Robbie Hunsinger Self Portrait captured by a hacked Xbox Kinect

I’m excited to announce a very special show taking place Saturday, April 2nd at Betty’s Bar & Grill. ROBBIE HUNSINGER will be performing an interactive audio/video set using a hacked Xbox Kinect, wi-mote, oboe, Chinese oboe, and soprano sax. Here’s a clip from her performance at last year’s Circuit Benders Ball:

 

William Davis from Oh No It’s Howard will be premiering a brand new setup as PRINCE HOWARD. His new project is a departure from the Venetian-Snares-influenced Oh No It’s Howard and is best described as noise-dub. CRAIG SCHENKER (Square People) will be sitting in with both artists.

And finally, I’ll be unveiling my brand new experimental Scoop and Loop solo project ADVENTURE BOMB. Scoop and Loop is a term of my own invention. The definition might be, “capturing sounds from the immediate vicinity, scooping sections, and building loops.” The idea is to sample the other bands, the audience, and the environment; throw it all in the air; and build something on the fly. I use cd turntables, loop pedals, and various effects. The project is partially inspired by the pioneering film makers who would travel from town to town and make a movie in a week, using local people and landmarks. They would screen the film for the townsfolk, take donations (and advertising revenues), and then do it all over again for the next town. ADVENTURE BOMB is like that, except with sound. To give you an idea, check out previous Scoop & Loop improvs WRITING HOME, IONIZE, and PIT OF ROAR.

I’ve performed an experimental set a few times in the past, but this is the first time I’m using the moniker ADVENTURE BOMB. It could be disastrous. It could be pretty cool. Come to Betty’s this Saturday to find out!
