Zephyr Quartet and then 1.1 Immermann playing Sensible Haircut Dan

Posted By / / 0 comments

So for Fringe this year, Coma put on a series of shows wherein different bands or artists played together but swapped repertoire. Immermann and the Zephyr Quartet played together. One of my compositions played by them was Sensible Haircut Dan (from Extra Knusprig) and we decided to quickly play it as well so you could hear the contrasting arrangements. This video by Dave Streeter has them back to back.

This is pretty special. Ross’s group of people playing at the Promethean in October this year. A great tune by Ross, recorded very nicely. And the playing’s kind of great too if I do say so.

You can view all his lovely monochromatic photos and videos of Louisiana Blues and some rambling Bon Iver song that everyone who isn’t me seems to love here:

Also included are photos of us hanging out after the gig, featuring me partying the only way I know how: not particularly hard.

Shaolin Afronauts – Winds Across Gayanamede video

I was privileged to be a part of the demonstrably monstrous (in size and goodness) Shaolin Afronauts earlier this year. I’m one of the percussionists on the upcoming album and we played live at Barrio and at the Space Theatre, which looked a lot like this:

I’ve been playing in Tim Hogan’s Frank Zappa tribute band ‘Läther’ for a while now. This is us at the Governor Hindmarsh at the start of this year. Dave Streeter has a bunch of other videos of worthy Adelaide music on his youtube page.

The Magic Flute – or – the Circus of the Sevenfold Seal of the Sun

Here is some video of a very cool production of the Magic Flute with which I was involved. It was a 29-piece band: piano (Richard Chew), bass (Lyndon Gray), drums (me) and vocals x 26 (the Tutti Ensemble).

One Sweet Dave

From the video description:

this one features multiple camera shots!
Points of interest:
– bass drum kept moving forward (quite irritating and usually doesn’t happen on carpet. I don’t know why it happened here. Maybe something fell off.)
– bass drum eventually collides with the microphone stand holding the camera (after a cut half way through), causing it too look like the whole room is shaking when I kick – pretty cool if you ask me.
– Dylan did several solo takes wearing the masquerade mask properly, but it started irritating him.
– wallet on snare
– first use of nude ribbon mics in the room with the guitar cabinet. With sm57 of course.
– 3:08: drummer point of view
– 3:18: right-handed Dylan point of view
– kick would have sounded better but someone felt the need to liberate my good kick mic from my house. Ah, thieves. How I hate them.
– cheap Chinese hi-hats modified and made excellent by Craig Lauritsen – www.cymbalutopia.com (crash is from him too.)
– Once again, all mistakes and inaccuracies have been left in because it’s too hard to fix them when you’re filming at the same time.
– watching in HD improves video and audio quality!

Knife and Tube (from when we were called The Dylan Ja Escape Plan)

Ironically, or at least unexpectedly, our live shows are all to click-tracks and with loops and things, while these video-songs are all just what you see and without click or anything. All mistakes are left in for your enjoyment.

I left that jacket on an aeroplane once, so if anyone finds it anywhere in the worlds, it’s mine.
