My third album, He Said She Said That’s What She Said came out this month.
I’ve kept the packaging a secret, but now someone has posted this awesome facebook picture (thanks Stephanie). These were one-of-a-kind, only 50 in existence. And they are all gone. But you can still download the music here: http://www.jeffharms.bandcamp.com
I collected walnuts from the walnut tree here at Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, boiled them down in water and added salt as a preservative. It makes a beautifully rich sepia ink, the same used by Rembrandt three hundred years ago.
Andrea Jablonski curated me into the Elastic show at MDW fair in Chicago, alongside the work of John Herndon and Ken Ellis. They thought of the idea “Kissing Booth”, which I like. The sculpture points towards the North Star. I like the idea of aligning a quick visceral moment (a kiss in a shed) with the stars. Maybe it should be called “Kissing Shed”?
Out in Los Angeles there is a woman called America who hosted an evening of one-act plays in her giant loft of a studio. She also had the plays published in a lovely compendium. Designed and layed out by Nicholas Monsour.
It was my first time writing a play since college. Exciting to work with John Ennis (of Mr. Show), Jaime Puckett (of my chicago theater days), Ebe Sievwright (of Great Britain and the BBC), the lovely Nancy Morgan (of countless TV shows (Love Boat!)), and two of my best friends Michael Gilio (Kwikstop, Big Hole), and Amy Sloan (who has been in a million things (HBO’s Call Me Fitz, The Aviator, Gilmour Girls, but I always want to see the one where she gets chased by a Terradactyl).
Pictures will not do the magical event justice
Ganzfeld won an honorable mention! All the work along the Mississippi was great, so that is very flattering. you can see the finished thing on the City’s webpage: http://www.cityofdubuque.org/index.aspx?nid=1657
Dubuque is awesome. Reminds me of Omaha. Great support for artists. A lot of energy and excitement around the arts. Can’t wait to go back. Here is a time-lapse of the project shot by the local news(below)
