piece-o-day ‘the ted cruz concession speech’
 

 
some new things. from gHOST project –
 

 
this is the duo of stacey (taheny) and me. originally meant to be one long track which i was going to call either ‘mayday’ (it was recorded may 1) or ‘seance’ -bandcamp forced me to split it into 2 files so i decided to call it both. it’s riff based at the beginning (where stacey is playing bass guitar) and at the end (where i’m playing bass guitar) and atmospheric in the middle.
 
and … a live set recorded at church ofThink a few weeks ago by kaplan rosenblum bowles sowa group (our first meeting) –
 

 
expect several more new things in the near future. i’m working on putting together shows for gHOST project, the hobnobs (who have never officially done a show before), etc. also we’ll probably be drumming with the shiviti drummers at legion park may 15 and at the jewish fest june 5 (see http://www.meetup.com/shiviti/) … so come say hello. as always to book – zelwel at hotmail dot com. thanks for listening.

‘bla bla bla ni ni ni ni’
 
a zelwel-ization of a typical current pop tune that they’d play here on 93.9 or ‘the mix’-
(fade in with drum machine and synths. then female vocal backed by synthesizers and drum machines to a dance beat in a bright major key sings ….)
bla bla bla nininini
bla bla bla ninini
bla bla bla nininini
‘cos i have a boyfriend
bla bla bla nininini
bla bla bla ninini
bla bla bla nininini
he can beat you up
(rap interlude – male vocal-)
bla bla bla bla bla bla
bla bla bla bla bla
bla bla bla bla bla bla
i can beat you up
bla bla bla bla bla bla
bla bla bla bla bla
bla bla bla bla bla bla
‘cos i am so great
(repeat several times from beginning of female vocal and then fade out.)
 
i will be playing gee-tar and perc this sat night (4/16) at noise fest 2 as part of bowles, sowa, rosenblum, kaplan. show starts at 7 (we’ll be on late).

2 very short pieces (less than one min each) –

first

 
‘the mission boy riff’ this is somehow abstracted from the song ‘going places’ by kid creole and the coconuts. believe me i know.
 
and then

‘the hokey pokey’ … ’cause that’s what it’s all about.

piece-o-day ‘show biz pizza where a kid can be a kid’ not a jingle for a vanished franchise but a sort of pentatonic four line verse about arts world.

also – yesterday’s – a downloadable ringtone that’s on my soundcloud page –
 

 
i’m feeling split in so many directions right now it isn’t funny. i can be booked for performance, computer work, etc. at zelwel at hotmail dot com. or just send money (PLEASE!) one way to do that would be to buy some of these ‘pay what you like’ e-cds from https://zelwel.bandcamp.com/. thanks for listening.

piece-o-day ‘shifty telly’. at ~2 min i think this one is a sketch for something bigger (erzats ‘folk’ tune not formally a ciftetelli).

currently after a long period of very little in terms of ‘official’ public performances zelwel dot com has several irons in the fire. but we’ve had a problem in the past with betting on things which never happened … so very cautious now.

we’ll see how / if things pan out & of course we’ll keep you all posted.

oh – also here’s some mi yodea video that phil came up with – ‘kol rina medley’ mitziut arts fest 2 – june 6, 2010 – it’s the quartet of phil, ann, sue, and me.

thought i’d do something today that would be sort of a spiritual opposite of what i did yesterday – so this is a version of an old blues song by robert johnson ‘come on in my kitchen’.
