Near the end of summer in 2014, I had the opportunity to interview esteemed music photographer Danny Clinch about his epic monograph Still Moving (Abrams) (which is available for purchase on Amazon). That interview is over at PopMatters. Then, a few weeks after, at the time of the book release, Clinch put together a party at the McKittrick Hotel where a lot of musicians came to pay their respects, many of whom sat in on a performance by the Tangiers Blues Band.

Clinch’s follow up project was a very limited edition book called Motor Drive, featuring artists and automobiles, as well as a gallery exhibit at Milk Studios with the opening night reception on March 3rd. The Milk Gallery website has some photos of the exhibition as well as a few words from the photographer about the process, “Clinch told Milk Made during the opening that this show, and it’s accompanying book release Still Moving, was something of an extreme labor of love. “I spent 25 hours on this wall alone” he says as he nods toward a gargantuan photo collage occupying the back wall of the Milk Gallery. “It’s been real great working on this show,” he continued, “it’s turning out better than I ever could have hoped for.” We had high hopes, but we couldn’t agree more.”

Torres on WNYC Soundcheck

TwitterFacebook

Yesterday I dropped by the Greene Space for an afternoon taping of WNYC’s Soundcheck show hosted by John Schaefer with featured guest, Torres (the musician known as Mackenzie Scott). WNYC noted,  “With Sprinter, her second record (out May 5 via Partisan Records), Torres again finds fertility in juxtaposition, while mining her own biography and anxieties.”

WNYC taped the event and a stream is currently available. You can find the video and a couple of photos below the jump.

While visiting Oslo last weekend, I stopped by the Munch Museum and got to see the combination Bjarne Melgaard and Edvard Munch exhibit. Here are a bunch of random pictures including the blue Bjarne the Muppet. ‘The Scream’ was not on display at the time but I did see it at the National Gallery.
