My treatise, Towards an Unbroken Media & Art, was an attempt to understand, formulate, and create with a continuum of all art elements: music, visual, writing, film, drama, movement. My business name UMEDIA evolved from the term that I coined in 1980: “Unbroken Media.”
Organic Architecture, by Wertico Cain & Gray, was 100% improvised and recorded live in Frank Lloyd Wright’s famous Dana-Thomas House (Illinois State Historic Site) on February 15, 2014. This video and audio project pioneers a new direction in music and video
Wertico, Cain & Gray’s CD “Sound Portraits” won Best Live Performance Album in the 13th Annual Independent Music Awards (2014). The 6 camera angles of video were digitally hand-painted, and the compositing and layering of these 6 video perspectives allows the viewer to “be the director.” Instead of seeing a close-up of a single musician, while forsaking the rest of what is going on, Sound Portraits allows the viewer to see everything – what they want, when they want, how they want. It’s been an amazing journey working on this project with my good friend and collaborator, Paul Wertico – an equally mad scientist/artist.
