Arthur Loves Plastic has eleven tracks featured in the Solocat Productions Los Angeles premiere of The Blue Room. A recent review describes an exquisite evening of theatre: “Adam Flemming provides a set consisting of screens that project multi-colored abstract designs while the furniture is being rearranged, and Arthur Loves Plastic provides original music interspersed with sexual moaning in the background.” The play runs from now until May 2, 2010. A cd of the tracks featured will be available at performances, or you can order the mp3s from Tradebit below:
If you are in LA check out the premiere of the award-winning play “Stop Kiss,” put on by Rogue Machine at Theatre Theater.
Christopher Moscatiello did the sound design and used one of my tracks, “Yeah Baby,” in a lesbian club scene, accompanied by samples of a drunk woman at a party.
Last night I got to perform at the Washington Area Music Awards. One of my favourite production clients, Cletus and Lori, invited me to play live on one of their tracks for which I had done loops and programs. The laptop and midi controller shtick went over really well considering that just less than two decades ago my synth pop band was routinely heckled for using a drum machine. The ALP CD Brief Episodes of Joy got the WAMMIE for electronica recording. You can get it on iTunes here.
Filmaker Shawn Postoff has just released the third episode of his queer erotica series “Sir Richard Wadd” and it features Arthur Loves Plastic’s track Klondyke 5. I am going to paste the code for the non-explicit version here for all you “work and surf” office stiffs:
The ALP track starts around 7:43. And for those who can surf the web without inhibition, the uncut version is here.
The mega-talented Canadian filmmaker Shawn Postoff features the ALP track “Afterglow” in “To Suffer is to Slip Unnoticed,” the latest episode in his series of smart, funny, non-mainstream gay erotica film-poems inspired by the Psalms. “Afterglow” starts in at around seven minutes, but you need to watch this clip from the beginning for full effect!!
