My friend Ur and I played two shows. Â Here’s the flyer.No comments
This Friday the 21st. of October
Starting ten minutes after sunset, 6:17 pm
For one hour, five minute performances for one nickel a piece.
Rain and hurricanes will cancel. Bring warm clothing and nickels.
Entrance to park and crosswalk at west 11th St. and the westside highway, in the very very west village.
This is where to find the crosswalk.No comments
Thankfully, Bulk Foodveyor was available to help Naval out when he decided to began his Guerrilla Cinema project secretly in San Francisco, September 2011.Â A few lucky souls were surprised while passing by Dolores Park and the Nob Hill Masonic Center to see Naval playing for a nickel a piece. He might bring his show to your street if you contact him.Â Email Naval at email@example.com if you would like to invite him to do a little show in your neighborhood.Â He likes to see new places and meet new people.Â Come back to this site to find out where and when his next show will be.Â Subscribe to the RSS feed to be automatically notified.
Photos and videos of his San Francisco shows are coming shortly.

This is the complete score of the instant cinema work “To Be Given A Title After It’s Performance.”
The work was inspired by a workshop I attended called “Video Composer’s Workshop”, held at Diapason Gallery in 2010. It had one performance at the gallery in April of the same year. Three performers participated, but the score requires five performers to be fully realized.
Each part is represented in score as “A”-”H”, with 5 blocks for each part. Each block represents a set of instructions for the performers, and the block is repeated until cued by the conductor. A block represents approximately 10 seconds; some blocks can be cut up into one second intervals, and sometimes they refer to the size and placement of props in a video frame and are relative in timing. Precise timing is not important in the performance of this work, and the parts are intended to phase in and out of time with each other during the duration of a block.
This list describes each part in the graphical score and the instructions given to the performers:
Part A â€“ the switching back and forth between two video cameras
Part B â€“ the switching back and forth between two audio signals
Part C â€“ props rotating on a turntable captured with the first video camera
Part D â€“ the relative position, size and length of time props are displayed on a plate of glass captured by the second camera
Part E â€“ the change in pitch of an oscillator
Part F â€“ the change in frequency of an AM radio
Part G â€“ is Part A modulated (modulation is live event)
Part H â€“ is Part B modulated (modulation is live event)
Parts A and B were converted into midi scores. They were played as five loops, one loop for each block. Parts C and D were given to two object handlers. They were used to guide them in the timing and placement of objects under two video cameras. These objects were chosen by the performers before the performance from my collection of props.
Parts E and F would be given to two sound performers, one controlling an oscillator and the other controlling an AM radio. Parts G and H are given to the fifth performer who is also the conductor, and used to guide him or her in modulating the playback of the two midi scores A and B.
Each of the five sections are separated with four solos, one for each object handler, and one for each sound performer. They are intended to break the momentum build up by the performance of each of the five sections.No comments
Hand Drawn Score
Parts A B C D
Parts E F G H
I cut the original score into 5 pieces of 8 tracks per piece. Of the eight tracks, only five have midi scores.
Voice A â€“ the switching back and forth between two video cameras
Voice B â€“ the switching back and forth between two audio signals
Voice C â€“ props rotating on a turntable captured with the first video camera
Voice D â€“ the relative position, size and length of time props are displayed on a plate of glass captured by the second camera
Voice E â€“ the change in pitch of an oscillator
Voice F â€“ the change in frequency of an AM radio
Voice G â€“ is Voice A modulated (modulation is live event)
Voice H â€“ is Voice B modulated (modulation is live event)
