The music for Improvisation/Construction # 1 was performed by Jacob William, Forbes Graham and Kevin Frenette (The "JFK Trio", my name for them) at Outpost 186 in Cambridge on June 26, 2011. I attended that concert, and took a lot of video footage of the performers.

Kevin gave me a recording of the set, and I selected a section and constructed the video by processing footage from the show and combining the footage with other imagery from my library. I used a lot of footage of mist, taken from the back deck of the family lakeside cottage.

I made no attempt to synchronize the concert footage with the audio -- though I did try to match the musicians shown at any time with those can be heard on the soundtrack. I did make a conscious decision to always show one or more of the musicians throughout the piece.

This is my first effort at using this particular visual music structure, and I would very much appreciate feedback, especially concerning the pacing and the decision to use footage from the concert for the entire piece. You can post a comment on You Tube or send me email at emile@foryourhead.com.
