A Sitting

by pcb123 on Sep.03, 2009, under PROCESS, VIDEO, ZEN

The zafu (cushion) is from Bodh Gaya, site of the Bodhi tree.  After Siddhartha/Shakyamuni’s breakthrough there, he went to Sarnath, outside Varanasi. That’s where I got this dangling cloth. I wasn’t able to concentrate on my breathing while I was there, but now, many years later, I bow to India from my perch in Echo Park. The relics aren’t important; they’re just signs.

RECKONER

by pcb123 on Aug.17, 2009, under AMUSEMENT, VIDEO, ZEN

Composed by Radiohead. Performed by The Interbeings – a virtual band consisting of Joe Lamattina on drums, Michael (henceforth Mikhail) Pessah on bass, and me on guitars and vocals. Don’t forget Lisa Lamattina, who did over-the-counter percussion and videography of Joe.

The visual style of this cover video is informed by Thich Nhat Hanh’s teaching that all things contain all other things. So I am you and we are both that lamp. Please enjoy while breathing in and breathing out.

I shot my sections and those featuring Mikhail, and I edited it all together. Mikhail mastered the mixed audio.
