The "Official" Project was initiated by myself, in conjunction w/ instrument inventor Neil Feather, in BalTimOre w/ its 1st rehearsal on April 25, 1990. That expanded to a big band in mid 1991. For practical reasons, the band was reduced from its peak of 17 to the touring group of 4: myself (tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE), Neil Feather, Peter Williams, & John Eaton - augmented by Rebecca Barten as the 16mm projectionist. Our 1st gig was at an art school in Portland, Maine. Since we changed our name (according to formula) every time we played, we were "the "Official", August 4th, 1992E.V., Band that If You don't Hear Your Vital Organs will Shrivel Up & Disappear". In Montréal, 3 of us appeared on radio stn CKUT as "the "Official", August 7th, 1992E.V., CKUT, Late Night Atrocity Exhibition Barkers". That program can be heard & downloaded from the Internet Archive here: http://archive.org/details/Radio1992 . Later that night we were joined by 3 more members of the big band: John Berndt, Scott Larson, & Eric Myers for our gig AT THE BIG ROCK CLUB Foufounes Electriques where we were "the "Official", August 7th, 1992E.V., Foufounes Electriques CosmoRobotic $350 Boxers". We moved on from there to Toronto where we made another (unrecorded) radio appearance (as "the "Official", August 11th, 1992E.V., Ersatz Ersatz Bahuteklangzeit 2000 ers") & then presented 2 shows as part of the Zerowork Jubilee at an after hrs club on a junkyard lot. John Cage having just died, both shows were dedicated to him: "the "Official", August 12th, 1992E.V., Zerowork Jubilee John Cage Cover Band Orchestra" & "the "Official", August 15th, 1992E.V., Morphing Center Orchestra w/ John Cage Interpreters". We went to the tiny town that my friends Miekal And & Liz Was had had parts of given to them in Wisconsin & performed in the abandoned high school gym as "the "Official", August 22nd, 1992E.V., Dreamtime Corroboree Comb Salespeople" where our (v)audience was mainly people from NYC. Next up was Denver, where Neil had lived for several yrs, to perform at a place that Neil performed at when he lived there, the Mercury Café. The Mercury had become a dinner theater in the meantime but we were allowed to play 2 gigs anyway as "the "Official", August 27th, 1992E.V., Mercury Café Neo-Re-Exciters" and as "the "Official", August 28th, 1992E.V., Mercury Café Neil-Re-Exciters". We wended our way to Missouri to become "the "Official", September 2nd, 1992E.V., Kansas City Artificial Intelligence 'tute Photo Studio Unknown Camera Obscura". Heading back home we stopped in Ohio to be "the "Official", September 5th, 1992E.V., Union Bar & Grill (Voted Athens Best Bar Live Music Featuring National Acts) Bug-Eyed H23 Visitors from Cronolytic Time". Documentation was sketchy & dependent upon getting footage from our hosts. The "Official Neoast Chair Didaction" movie featured here can also be witnessed separately elsewhere: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qYnpi3... . Various audio cassettes + the VHS vaudeo tape that this movie is excerpted from are available here: http://idioideo.pleintekst.nl/WdmUCat... . Hard as it will be for some people to understand, I had rehearsed or played live this material at least 137 times BEFORE STARTING THE TOUR!! - March 15, 2013E.V. notes from tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE
