Sound artist R. Weis presents PARROT & PAPERBACK a four-part composition created from samples of sounds made by Congo, an African Grey Parrot paired with the sound of a paperback book about the Congo jungle dropping on the floor.
Almost exactly four years ago, I wrote an article on the Sound Art of R. Weis. My article was published to other art sites. You can read the text, minus the images, here.
.
R. Weis has composed with manipulated sound since the 1980s. Over the last 30 years, his works have been heard in many galleries and museums, on many US radio stations, and on radio in Europe, including on London’s Resonance FM. A self-taught artist, Weis’ compositions are fixed recordings, not performed live.
“PARROT & PAPERBACK” was created on MachFive Sampling Software and Digital Performer Sequencing Software. For more information, visit www.rweis.com.

Feature Articles on Artists: How To Get Your Art Featured

blogCreativebutton

Artist Marketing Resources announced the launch of the new ArtWorld Community magazine last week, with Marie Kazalia and Keith McFarlane as co-editors. The first week, both Keith and I have received requests from several artists wishing to be featured in articles.

With all the interest, I’ve begun looking at articles I’ve written on artists and published 3 and 4 years ago–many published in the Yahoo! contributor network, by Technorati News, and on the VASA New York blog, as well as this blog.  One of these early articles I wrote on  R. WEIS – titled Compositions of Manipulated Sound ( read it here) with the artist sending me his sound art CDs so that I could listen to his work. I don’t recall which came first, but I wrote a second article on a Cleveland based Artist Who Uses Sound Chris Kulcar here, with lots of videos of this young artist’s performances included in the article.

My article on painter Chris Osborne’s  Stars and Cars series, including Jimi Hendrix with His Corvette Stingray, Paul Newman with His Racing Datsun, Steve McQueen and the Bullit Mustang here, brought interest due to the subject matter of vintage cars and celebrities depicted in the paintings.

I also wrote a timely article on the efforts of the Artist Power Bank in Tokyo along with American artist Alicia Bay Laurel’s Fund-Raising for Japan’s earthquake disaster relief here. Alicia Bay Laurel’s success goes back to the 1960’s with the publication of her artist book still in print and available today and popular in Japan.

When I wrote my article on Canadian Artist in Scotland – Trevor Jones here, I learned about his research into color and sound theory and his use of music in his art. (Trevor also sent me two of his drawings as gifts!).

I wrote and published the first article on photographic artist Ventiko (here) who has since been feature in print in Interview Magazine!  Ventiko is an extraordinary photographic artist who creates images that look like Renaissance oil paintings.

These are just a select few early articles on artists featured on Artist Marketing Resources. At least one of these artists recently contacted me requesting that I write a new article on his latest work for the ArtWorld Community magazine.

As editor, I am seeking complete articles with images, ready to publish. As feature writer, I offer options to artists here.

More recently, Artist Marketing Resources has featured articles on a wide variety of painters, from Paul Rooms in New York, to Texas cowboy artist J.R. Smith, as well as Jay Burton’s sensual photographic art (here)– just to name a few.

 

 

Latest Technorati Article and a glitch

R. Weis Excitable Audible Album Cover

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, sound artist R. Weis sent me his latest CD. After I listened to it, he sent his press release, and the jpegs of himself and his CD album cover I requested for my Technorati article.

I wrote my article and submitted it to Technorati news editors around midnight, expecting morning publication. The next morning the notice oddly absent. As the day progressed, I received no notice that my article had gone live. That afternoon, R. Weis emailed thanking me for the article. I hadn’t even known it had been published! I found my article and the noticed it had been published at 9:28 a.m., yet I had not received the automated email notice of publication.  I contacted the Technorati editors and received an immediate reply that they had experienced a glitch of two that morning.

Here is the article:
