"Music, in performance, is a type of sculpture. The air in the performance is sculpted into something."
- Frank Zappa
Done!, as dubbed by my pal and cohort, Scott Boyink (Hype Ignition/The Amino Acids) was originally a lightbulb reaction to a forum he read about some assholes raising ridiculous amounts of money to shoot and edit a “concert documentary”. He called me, told me, we laughed, we felt superior and eventually shot and edited this show for ZERO BUCKS. (discounting gas and beer and burgers)
People who try to raise thousands of dollars to achieve what cell phone cameras and free editing software can at minimal cost are the epitome of “filmmaking” nitwits. This project is nothing more than us showing our nuts in an attempt to kill the notion that money is the only way of executing the simplest of visual undertakings. It’s a revolting scheme. Sure, we’ve got some cameras and editing equipment - we also have jobs and payment plans and friends who know how to build computers and steal softwares, but on that, I digress.
The true beauty of this EXPERIMENT, to me, is that Scott got me out of my carapace to watch some bands. I tend to hibernate in the winter behind whatever other project, and I miss out on FANTASTIC music and people that Scott has always had an archaic clutch on. The point to Done!, beyond our cocky display of producing it, is that you should GO TO SHOWS. The music and energy and ferocity is there, and if it costs, it’s like twelve quarters or something.
We will probably produce a few more of these, just for fun and just so anyone can full screen it with the sound way up on a rainy day while making dinner.
