Kurt Weller to do voice work in upcoming The Edge of Sin!

I am pleased to announce that after a short audition period I have been slated to do some voice work in MayFlowerSoapQueen's upcoming The Edge of Sin. I've been told by the director that production will begin soon. I am unsure of which character voice[s] I will be doing but I am very impressed with the newly completed intro and am very flattered to have been invited onboard.

Here is a brief synopsis of the project [from MayFlowerSoapQueen]:

Opening for upcoming campy 2008 Barbie Soap Opera about three matriarchal families in the fictional city of Sunnyside: The Gregg's, the Stone's and The Kerrell's.

Divorcee, Monte-Bella (named after dad Monte and mom Bella) Kerrell runs the family business, KerrellCo Cosmetics. Chief chemist and creator of the company's hottest selling compound, Radondo Number9, Elizabeth Gregg is also Monte-Bella's stepmother and nemesis and primary suspect in M-B's father's disappearance. Kathryn Stone is the go-between among the two rivals while serving up drinks at her bar, The Dock, and trying to keep her past a secret.

Also starring:
Tara and Meghan Gregg - The former takes after her mother while Meghan is innocent and in love with Clark Kerrell and spokesperson for the ravaging disease of Plasticosis, which she suffers from.

Halo Stone is the sometimes deceitful daughter of Kathryn Stone and in love with Dixon Marsh, Sunnyside's best known chiropractor.

Chloe Kerrell is the teenaged daughter of M-B and dating Jenks Scott, her Latin tutor. Brother Adam Kerrell is the black sheep of the family and equally lusting after Elizabeth and Meghan Gregg.

Maya Chando is proprietor of The Spiritual Space, a store filled with religious paraphernalia and natural healing potions. She is dating good guy surfer college student, Jacob Welton. Jason Welton, Jacob's twin brother, is back in town after overdosing on the new club drug "Seaweed" and hooks up with Tara Gregg who uses and abuses Jason in order to help her break up Jacob and Maya, the latter being the true object of her affections.

Stay tuned for more updates!

The Plaza of the Mind Interview with Negativland's Don Joyce!

I picked up a copy of Negativland's Escape From Noise back in 1991 or 1992 and it was really unlike anything I had heard before. It was like a smörgåsbord of found snippets of dialogue mixed with upbeat rhythms and lyrics with a glazing of suburban humor. The band later went on to record albums such as Free, Dispepsi as well as the infamous The Letter U and the Numeral 2 (though not in that order).

Besides their musical work the band has long advocated for the fair use of electro-quoting and appropriating of images. Because of pioneers such as Negativland, the Tape-beatles and John Oswald younger suburban kids such as myself felt a sort of empowerment to have more of an active role in our intake of the outer channel media that came into our lives.

The Plaza of the Mind Interview with Paul Robb of Information Society!

I had been a fan of Information Society since the release of their self-titled LP in 1989. But it was their follow up release, Hack, that propelled them into the forefront of my favorite recording artists, a spot that they have remained in ever since. The original line-up of the band [Paul Robb, James Cassidy and Kurt Harland] dissolved shortly after their third release, Peace and Love, Inc., and was continued solely by lead singer Kurt Harland on the incredibly atmospheric Don't Be Afraid.Information Society had not recorded any new material since that 1997 release and I had begun to give up hope of ever hearing anything new until last spring when it was announced that Paul Robb was working on a new record [Synthesizer] with James Cassidy and newcomers Christopher Anton and Sonja Myers and would soon be playing select cities. I was lucky enough to catch the reunited Information Society last summer [see my coverage of the show here] and had an amazing time. Information Socie…

Plaza of the Mind Interview with Adam Parfrey.

I first heard of Adam Parfrey in the late nineties when I picked up a copy of his record A Sordid Evening of Sonic Sorrows:A collection including covers of Lou Reed [Kill your Sons] and Black Sabbath [Paranoid] as well as several memorable originals, my favorite being Nation Down For the Count, which can best be described as an easy listening rant.I later discovered that Mr. Parfrey was also a book publisher and is the founder of Feral Housebooks.I had already been a great fan of Donna Kossy’s book Kooks, which was published by Feral House.Feral House specializes in books dealing with the extremes of human behavior and outsider art.They are not books for the squeamish but they are quite well crafted and nothing if not interesting.I sent Mr. Parfrey an invitation to participate in a short piece for the Plaza of the Mind and he was generous enough to accept it.What follows is an electronic interview conducted over a couple of days.Enjoy![The Plaza of the Mind quotes appear in Bold-type,…
