When I went back to Ohio to fly with mom to Portland I didn’t realize how much had been taken out of Grandpa Harry’s house. There are a few things, but the shadows remain. Shadows of a generation born, raised, baptized, fed, schooled, supported, argued with, celebrated, reconciled and moved away swirl in the home. This before and after show where grandpa sat on the couch and wore a mark in the carpet, the first photo was shot in 2007, the second one days ago in 2014.
Currently a selection of these photos from my project, When Are You Coming Home? about my grandpa and his last days are on display at the Peninsula Fine Arts Center in Newport News until October.
Cut ups, mash-ups, circuit bending, tape-mangling and, oh yeah, the Dr. Who theme.
One of the true innovators of electronic music. And yes, she’s the person who “realised” (arranged, performed) the Doctor Who theme.
From wikipedia: “In August 1962 she assisted composer Luciano Berio at a two-week summer school at Dartington Hall, for which she borrowed several dozen items of equipment from the BBC. One of her first works, and the most widely known, was her 1963 electronic realization of a score by Ron Grainer for the theme tune of the Doctor Who series, one of the first television themes to be created and produced by entirely electronic means.”
