“pulling down the sky to give you the sun”
Track Number One: song for a significant other | 1min 50sec | DV | 2005
After piecing together a yellow outfit from second hand stores, the simple act of jumping is turned into a performed act of giving as a figure struggles to transform himself into the sun. Track Number One was a belated birthday present and is a gift to be shared with others, especially the artists who continue to exercise their light and amuse their imaginations.

We are so pleased to present the first incarnation of The 22 Playlist. Our first playlist speaks to love and third degree burns respectively. Ranging from the brain melting effects of Je suis le Petit Chevalier’s (Felicia Atkinson), “A Guide to the Sun” to a lethargic lullaby from Bee and Flowers’s most recent “Suspension,” to a parched call for joy from Franz Nicolay’s most recent album “Do the Struggle,” this playlist travels the spectrum of blind love.

(To soothe the incredibly strange journey?)
I began my exploration of Andasol via a Twin Peaks marathon and a nasty cold but three weeks later (cough syrup and owl references aside) the album itself seems an attempt to document the story of a mythology, prominent and haunting, which (on some level) should avoid any comparison to Badalamenti save for perhaps, “Heron Lake.”
There have been discussions and debates about the origins of the tunes, a cryptic reference in the liner notes led me on a month long search for a (to be determined) Southwestern mystic, but then, I watched the documentary Jay contributed music to, Marwencol…and things became clear.

In his magnum opus, Gravity’s Rainbow, Thomas Pynchon introduces us to the German concept of Brenschluss in the telemetry of the flight of the V2 rocket. The rocket is propelled by its engines and travels along its parabolic arc. At a certain point the engines turn off, this flameout is called brenschluss. At brenschluss the rocket’s ascendancy is checked by gravity, and before it begins to fall to its target on earth, it hesitates for just a moment. After this moment gravity and momentum alone, not a rocket engine, define the inexorable trajectory of descent to its inevitable, calamitous end. (READ MORE.)

Harvey Stein has been a fixture on the New York photo scene for many years. He has photographed the city from every angle with every kind of camera, at every time of day and night. Beyond these shores he has led photographic seminars and workshops all over the world…He’s gone everywhere, and for the last 40 years he’s been going to Coney Island…where New York City flows into the Atlantic Ocean at the end of Ocean Avenue, in Brooklyn.
