Invisible Woman Spotted at IceFest 2011

While attending IceFest 2011 in Chambersburg, PA on 01/29/11 with a friend, I spotted the Invisible Woman. I asked nicely and she was kind enough to pose on the ice throne so I could take her picture. Thank you Invisible Woman!

New Year's 2011 Audio Warfare Sessions

Every New Year's, Any Questions? assembles to create live improvisational audio warfare. This year was no different. Ttam Troll and MC2P4 descended upon the studio at FFS II and recorded a series of performances. A favorite from the sessions is one simply referred to as TR-3, a 5+ minute distorted, analog synth throb which is sure to leave your speakers blown and ears bleeding.

P.S. This photo of Ttam Troll was taken on 05/15/10 at FFS II Synth Jam 2010 - '80s Style.

On (and in) The Water

Here's another photo that I uncovered from my Christ United Methodist Church Youth Fellowship days in Shippensburg, PA. This photo, taken during Summer 1986, is from a YF retreat to the legendary A-Frame cabin in Central PA.

In this picture, you'll notice that we both have oars. What makes that special to note is, months earlier in frigid water temperatures, we had lost one of them while navigating the same waterway. Our boat capsized when Pete decided to be "cool" and stand up while we were negotiating a turn. Needless to say, we were both a little "frosty" after going into the drink. However, I managed to hold onto my oar and pull the boat to shore. Pete frantically tried to retrieve his oar but to no avail. The only thing that he almost got was hypothermia!

Pictured from L to R: Pete Morgan and Matt Norcross.

Vizator bassist/synthesist Matt Norcross performs at PPG Plaza in downtown Pittsburgh, PA (Summer 1989). Another photo from my Studio Line from L'Oréal period.

P.S. Thanks to Mitzi Moyer and her sister for taking this picture.
