This was a one night inspiration.  Titled “Barry Only Has Eyes For You (Love Down Disco
Lane -the late 70s)”
or maybe it should be Third-Eye Crooner.  The two flanking 45s are Jump (For My Love) by the Pointer Sisters, and Shake Your Groove Thing by Peaches & Herb.  This clock is now owned by one my co-workers, Connie – who says it will be under the tree, gifted to her husband, come Christmas morn.

Lauren Canyon Music Mushroom (late 60’s, early 70s)

For Torben and Lauren Von Staden. Christmas 2013. On the “Ladies of the Canyon” center label - photos of Lauren, Aveline, and Joni Mitchell (all with long blond hair), plus Carole King, and some of Lauren’s friends/neighbors.
My most ambitious clock to date – includes records by the Canyon-dwellers (in the 60s) Jackson Browne, Crosby Stills and Nash, John Mayall, The Doors (Morrison), Frank Zappa, Mamas and the Papas. Plus a canyon created with many layers of album fragments.

Always A Cappella

Posted: May 25, 2013 in Uncategorized


PRESS THE ARROW ABOVE TO HEAR IT. “Always” 2:30.

My a cappella cohorts on Beacon Hill (Seattle). SATB.  Here’s a sweetened mix of us doing “Always.”  Gang - mix is a little low for the soprano part, but it’s the best song we rough recorded the other night during rehearsal.

Qual Singers Clock small  Qual Singer detail

Flanked by symphonic on Angel and RCA.  Reds and rainbows.  Moves top to bottom.

Streisand to Simon & Garfunkel to Kenny Loggins.

Blues are the hues. London, Verve, Blue Note, and of course Motown.

Finally finished this Colliding Vinyl clock.  Naming it either “Earth Sound”  or “Time is running out” (the more pessimistic environmental statement).   Hope you can read the record titles.   Lots of orange and brown hues.

78s meet 33 and a thirds

This isn’t a clock (yet); maybe just a wall piece. If it falls off that wall, however, it’ll end up in tiny pieces, because those two old 78 rpms on each end (Harmony Records) are brittle as heck.
