well, why don't we just head back to where this whole thing started? you talked about the clash between wanting to focus on music or on art. from there we have fairly successfully set up a system for the music to progress. and the system was designed to give you space to do art. is it too difficult to blend the ideas of telafonica's visual aesthetic with your own work, heading towards a show or something later in the year? you know that i like the work you do, and our recent discussions confirm that we're both thinking about similar ideas in terms of aesthetics and process. what is missing is content. but i can quite comfortably say that i'm happy for you to begin working towards a show, and i think that telafonica can quite comfortably grow out of that.
if we work it the same way as we are the music, just conversely, then isn't that what we kind of decided back then? just start making art that is aimed at a show. pass me on what you've done for critiquing. i would be very happy with that kind of working relationship, if you are as well. i would imagine that my role could possibly be in suggesting ways to appropriate your work into telafonica. which you would also do. there is a long history of visual artists doing their work and then that being brought very successfully into the visual aesthetic of a band. just have a look at the gorillaz.
i feel the same way about doing everything. posters, albums, shirts, artworks that just stand alone, live visual stuff... i would say, just start making your art. it will fall into place because you have this in your mind anyway. i think the best thing would be to see if you can organise a show. and then go for it. these kinds of things aren't generally given to you unless you already have grabbed a certain level of being known for yourself. i think it's analogous to releasing music through a label. you can hope someone will find you and throw lots of money at you, but really, it's not going to happen. so do it your(our)self.
