Jan Pulsford – August 06 – The Bell in the Park

Video Archive 59 – The Bell in the Park

Today, August 6th, we remember Hiroshima – I was fortunate to have visited Japan many times when playing keyboards on various tours. The city of Hiroshima became a favourite of mine with all paths leading to the Peace Park. I made a digital audio recording of a walk i made through the Park. You can hear footsteps, crows and the sound of the creaking of the bell as i pulled the wooden post back to ring the bell of peace. Years later I was going through some old DATs and found that afternoon captured in time. When I started performing live shows on line I improvised music over those moments and released it as ‘ The Bell in the Park’
This is a video by Deceptions Digital inspired by the music

Jan Pulsford – Climbing the Tree

Video Archive 25 – Climbing the Tree

In 2006 I became an online virtual performance artist. Trying to explain that concept to most is nigh on impossible so all I can tell you is that for the last 8 years I have played music and communicated with thousands of people all over the world, from my computer. It’s an immersive experience and perfect for a life long music maker like me, interested in expanding horizons both musically and technologically. I have found a receptive audience for my ambient music world using the avatar JaNa KYoMooN and keep developing the musical ‘behind the monitor ‘ activities as internet and computer power permit. What’s not to love? Here’s a video from the Black Dahlia Club.
