Austin Pictures

What’s Matt been up to?  Why so little blogging of late?

It’s all here: Austin Pictures

This is easily the most ambitious single presentation I’ve ever attempted with ACGS.  And it’s coming up this Saturday night, October 1st, at 8PM at  ACL Live at the Moody Theater!

I was inspired last year when one of my favorite artists, guitarist Jorge Caballero, told me he was programming the impossibly difficult, and incredibly beautiful and evocative, “Pictures at an Exhibition” by Modest Mussorgsky for solo guitar.  That combined with our friendship with KLRU and the spectacular new ACL venue opening led to Austin Pictures.  It’s a multimedia, highly collaborative show, all swirling around the Pictures at an exhibition, with visual art, music and film, some of the greatest musicians I know along side of student artists, musicians and filmmakers.

We’re gonna have a very good time!

Plus we auctioned off a doubles tennis match against Jorge and me for the morning after the concert – so the pressure is really on!

Tons of info is at my newest AP blog: “Austin Pictures Top 10” where I give 9 links to videos and online stories about the project.  Check it out!
