New Video: “Impatience”

Posted by on April 17th, 2014

Today we’re unveiling the third Skeleton Crew video: “Impatience”.  It’s an catchy, poppy kind of tune featuring John on vocals (he mostly wrote the song, too), with video we shot while recording the different tracks for the song.  If you like it, please share it with your friends!

Transposition Again

Posted by on April 4th, 2014

What Am I ImageChoices ImageIf you’re reading this, you’re probably aware that Transposition, our first album, is an example of that much-maligned art form, rock opera.  After the album was completed, we became interested in the possibility of bringing Transposition to the stage.  So far we have had little success; the people we have approached seemed to lose interest after learning the subject matter.  I guess it’s a little too controversial for our conservative little neck of the woods.  Anyway, I have been searching for alternative ways of presenting the opera visually as well as aurally.  I arrived at the idea of using static drawings to illustrate the action, but until recently hadn’t found a cost-effective way of doing that.  Then I found–a great tool for creating comic strips quickly and relatively easily.  After several weeks of feverish activity, I have produced a series of videos consisting of comic strip-type drawings (complete with dialog balloons), so that for the first time, it’s possible to see as well as hear Transposition.  It’s not quite as exciting as watching a stage show or movie, but it’s a start.  We will be having a private showing or two, and then eventually upload the videos to YouTube for viewing by the general public.  Stay tuned–we’ve got more Skeleton Crew videos on the way, too!
