A surreal trip down memory lane in tribute to Timothy Leary and his signature libation. Music was produced by MediaThief during an online Facebook live session with the subsequent recording used as the basis for the video mix performed by Mike Celona live in the studio a few days later.

Introducing the first in what will be an ongoing series of audio/visual mixes in which I handle both halves of the sensory equation myself. This past summer I felt that the time was right for me to start learning how to DJ as a way of better coupling my live video art with the kinds of sounds that move me and in my opinion, best suit the images. While some of you might recall my posting a couple of relatively low-key preliminary attempts at this over the past few months, I felt that this piece was the first one in which my audio mixing had approached some degree of proficiency, which is why I’m letting it kick off the Cinematheque series. My goal is to eventually be able to juggle both audio and visual mixing simultaneously live and if this piece is any indication I look forward to a fun journey ahead!
