The happy accomplishment, with a practical product at the end is enchanting. This was a 4 hour workshop. The idea was to keep him engaged (fun), have a finished workable product, use our heads to engineer the idea, and never spend a second fussing about perfection. Continue reading
Putting my audio engineering certification to good work, I wrote this track and “painted” it with a collage of soundbites from an array of my favorite spoken ideas. In the comments of the actual wave file I have a reference for all the main speakers.
From Sonmi 451 to Glenda the Good Witch there are many messages to hear. Settle in for 12 minutes of aural paradoxical relaxation and provocation! xxoo Yabette
While being out of town last summer, following the Sunset Piano Journey was my wistful pleasure. When I found out Mauro Ffortissimo and Co were furthering the pursuit of piano street performance with a new San Francisco sanctioned version on Market Street, I could not miss the first concert.
The truth is, there’s nothing really classier than a grand piano. What a charming way to elevate 6th and Market street, adding to the flavor of the Show Dogs restaurant corner in Central Market area of San Francisco. From contemporary classical and jazz to swanky standards, the piano performances gave passersby and Sunset Piano Followers a lovely treat. Continue reading

The adorable Stephanie Mufson is a creative force of talent, humor, and enterprising energy. She is another perfect third to the triangle foundation of this week’s Infinite Union:A 3 Woman Art Show. It’s especially wonderful that the Artist Reception on Saturday falls on her birthday and will be quite the celebration!
While she is currently creating constant commercial work as the manager of the Bay Area’s Parade Float and Prop House East West (Aka The Parade Guys) at pier 54 in San Francisco, she is also creating whimsical graphic art pieces. While their sculptural nature adds to the subject, their airy qualities of buoyant joy are quite evident!
Here’s her thoughts on this current work: “Dark and Light. Interior and Exterior. Dreaming and awake. Us and Them. known and unknown. Alan Watts pointed out the obvious truism that you can’t have a front with out a back. They are inherently, inseparably connected, like two sides of the same coin.
The space in between, that liminal tunnel that connects one to its opposite, is the place that connects us all to each other and everything that is. And is not. And lost in the interwoven maze of material and metaphor, like a ship on the ocean, or a balloon amongst the stars, we find our selves tangled, alone. Together.”
Make sure to catch Stephanie at the pop-up gallery at 66 6th St. in San Francisco this week from Friday December 13th, to Tuesday December 17th. XXOO Yabette
