1. “We’re working on constantly shifting grounds,” said Rudolf Frieling, a curator of media arts at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, which has been at the forefront of sustaining online art. “Whatever hardware, platform or device we’re using is not going to be there tomorrow.”

    “Frankly speaking,” he added, “it’s a huge challenge.

    Not every museum is set up to do that. It takes huge technical expertise.” The riddles are only solved by “actually doing it,” Mr. Frieling explained.

    So I have the honor of getting to play with the amazing Portland based band MUSÉE MÉCANIQUE at the also amazing UNION HALL and I am so very excited about it. Both Micha and Sean possess a unique and haunting voice while maintaining complete control over their various instruments (read: SINGING FUCKING SAW). The rest of the band is equally mind blowing, playing assorted keyboards, melodicas, drums, etc. Their record, Hold this Ghost, was one of my favorites of last year.

    So please come! If you only come to one show of mine this year— let it be this one.
