So while things were slower than usual in the past year or so there have been some interesting things happening in Frugal Land.
At Frugal Control I’ve had a few projects come through. Late in ’09 I did some interesting dialog cleanup for a documentary on 9/11. I also provided mastering services for the second album from Kamikaze LTD, After Radio. I mixed a track on this one too. Bonus points to anyone who figures out which one. Kamikaze is made up of friends and alumni I know from both City Honors and Binghamton University, as well as noted buffalo Bassist Jim Wynne. I’ve functioned as something of a technical adviser since they began.
That was followed with a release concert for After Radio held at Buffalo’s Alt Theatre. I handled lighting along with shooting some still and moving pictures. Also did some authoring work to prep Jim Siniscalchi’s video for projection.
Then after a lot of bureaucratic hassle I signed on as part of the crew at a local venue. I’ve decide not to name the venue here for a host of reasons but I’ll talk about some of the shows as I go along. Many of the artists are great (some not so much). The crew is decent and there’s some great gear too.
