Title – “Vampire Nixon” Dimensions – various formats Format – digital collage Date – 2010
It’s a pretty well known fact that I think less than zero about former crook and President, Richard “Tricky Dick” Nixon. I consider him a political vampire and here’s my presentation of him for the future to remember him correctly…
Title – “A New American Prayer – Album Cover” Dimensions – square format – various sizes Format – digital collage Date – 2010
This is the album cover I designed for UFOverdriver for it’s second full length epic sound collage called A New American Prayer.
This is much more personal sound collage, dealing with issues like bi-polar disorder, the civil rights movement, the power of Martin Luther King‘s speeches, the poetry of Jim Morrison, the deep inequalities in our country, and the destruction of the planet by our species.
I worked on the sound collage through May and early June of 2010 when the stories of the BP oil disaster were in the news constantly.
This album had a video called Dream Leaver
About The Video
This is a sound collage from UFOverdriver called The Dream Leaver – Track #6 from the album A New American Prayer – Release in June 2010
— Source material for this sound collage includes Dream Weaver by Gary Wright and God by John Lennon. Enjoy!
The Album Cover
The image used on the album cover was from the civil rights march that took place at the same time I was being born in June 1964.
Title – “The Brothership Has Landed – Album Cover” Dimensions – square format – various sizes Format – digital collage Date – 2010
This is the album cover I designed for UFOverdriver for it’s first full length (44 minutes long) epic sound collage called The Brothership Has Landed – the title being a direct reference the the Hopi Indian legend of the future arrive of the true white brother.
From The Back of the CD
What happens when you cut-up and re-mix Pink Floyd’s classic 1977 album Animals with Bob Marley, Johnny Cash, Leonard Cohen, David Bowie, David Byrne and Brian Eno, DJ John Digweed and other musical slices along with a number of sound clips from the mass media and popular culture? You get a snap shot of current and future events in the form of an epic sound collage by UFOverdriver called The Brothership Has Landed…
This sound collage was constructed in 3 Acts between March 5th and March 17th, 2010 – and the completed piece contains 12 individual tracks, with a total length of nearly 44 minutes long.
About The Album Cover Image
This is taken from a photo of the Battersea Power Station on England. This building was used from the album shoot for Pink Floyd‘s album Animals – among other things…
Title – “Calling Down The UFOverdriver – Album Cover” Dimensions – square format – various sizes Format – digital collage Date – 2010
This is the album cover I designed for UFOverdriver for it’s first EP, which contains the first two UFOverdriver sound collages; Area 5150 and Integratronic.
Here’s the videoscape for Area 5150 – the sound collage that kicked off the UFOverdriver project in January 2010 – Enjoy!
Also included in the EP is two bonus tracks, both them featuring Automatic Pete, the on-board computer – he’s very well spoken and a bit poetic. In the first he explains how the UFOverdriver flies through the air like a Vimana. In the second he gives a dramatic reading of Frank Zappa’s song Trouble Every Day – a real treat, in my opinion.
The Album Cover
The image used is of Shiva and his consort Parvati:
Shiva with Parvati. Shiva is depicted three-eyed, the Ganges flowing through his matted hair (which are yellowish-white or like molten gold), wearing ornaments of serpents and a skull bracelet, and covered in ashes, and Trisula and Damaru are seen in the background.
Title – “The Grand Deception Star Flies Over It’s Dominion” Dimensions – square format – various sizes Format – digital collage Date – 2012
This is the graphic I created for the new sound collage CD from UFOverdriver called Grand Deception Star.
As you can see, the Grand Deception Star (constructed of all-seeing eyes, a pyramid of deception, a symbol of the International Monetary Fund and rays of light from a Freemason symbol) is flying over it’s dominion, a landscape of illusion.
The lands below are constructed from several charts – one of international corporate control, and one of secret societies and how they interconnect.
A rather famous landmark (hint: it’s located in Vatican City) is repeated three times in the background, and, of course, we have the masses of people underneath it all.
Does it have some kind of meaning? Oh yes, but I’ll let you work it out…
