Magic created in 685 sq ft of usable space. People who go the extra mile. Greenwich Village. New York City.
Storyboarded video tribute idea to capture the spirit of Caffe Vivaldi.
Used ABC-TV theme song for Brothers & Sisters by NLX ("Find Love") -- a frequent performer at Caffe Vivaldi.
Used pictures I took over the last 5 years and photos of friends of Caffe Vivaldi.
MTV/VH1 were digital clients long ago...and pop up video influenced some of my past work manifesting a bit here.
True story: I emailed this to an exec at the Grammy Awards in November, 2007: "I am often in New York where i see a lot of magnificent artists in places such as...Caffe Vivaldi in the Village, one of New York's last surviving music cafes...Musicians play for donation. I discovered a new soulful artist there and always go there to show up to see her, i think it means so much to an artist today. She even inspired me to write a song Kate's Manhattan which i posted on Facebook and MySpace. I recently saw an artist who reminds me of Nina Simone there, whom i photographed to capture the moment. I even saw a friend of mine, an actress-musician, who visited New York City for the first time, and made it to the stage on an Open Mike to perform spoken word. She used a tiny bathroom as a Green Room to rehearse. It barely fits one person. I have never seen people so happy.
I have always called music the hardest profession and hardest art form in the world. What other art form or profession requires someone to work late nights, carry heavy equipment (and depend on it), find vehicles that fit the equipment (the harp...is unbelievably wide), spend lots of money on recording, travel so much, and work for donation. Even Buddhist Monks have a better life. And yet, that's how some of the best music gets created, how it saves so many lives and impacts so many people, growing their identities at such at formative stage in life.
While i am there, i always write, wondering what speech would make music matter...always thinking of the keynote speech on Grammy night. Music Makes Me...write....all the time...with illumination only music can make."
