Winter greetings listeners! I hope all of you are having a nice holiday season.
Last week I sat down with three of the many rotating members of Spettra. Teresa Koester Mills, Allie Marcum, and Kevin Melzer filled me in on what Spettra is all about.
Spettra is a projectionist collective who specialize in the hands on approach. Their visuals are based in lo-fi technology such as overhead projectors, kitchen liquids and hand held paraphernalia. If it can be found on a shelf, they’ve probably tried it. Above is a small glimpse at what they can do.
You can learn more at their Facebook page. Of course, you can always listen in to our discussion to get the 411..
How’s it going, listeners? I’d definitely say this is the time of the year for treats; the more traditional edible kind, and the not so edible variety. This holds true for Blind Date, and what I bring to you in the weeks coming. Next Wednesday, I give to you the projectionist collective Spettra. The folks of Spettra keep the hands on tradition of liquid light shows and projections alive with their lo-fi approach. You’ve probably seen them out doing their thing, and not even know it. Spettra has done visuals for such local musicians such as Lady Pyramid, Black Birds of Paradise, and Twin Limb. Be sure to listen in to the humorous conversation I had with them, come Wednesday. And hopefully the Wednesday after, Christmas for those who celebrate it, I’ll have something a little special for you if all goes right. Things are hectic trying to balance projects, family gatherings, holiday parties, and interviews. You’ll just have to be patience and see..
PS. Above is a video of Spettra providing some awesome visuals for Black Birds of Paradise at Haymarket.
