Re: Musicians here?
>> Do we have other musicians in the world of telecine?
Sometimes I think most everyone in video started out as a musician.
I've been playing bass since 1968. While I was stationed in Vietnam in
1971, I spent three months of my tour performing with a Special Services/USO
group. After we got out of the service, the core of musicians formed a band
in Colorado and it lasted a few years. I continued to play, eventually
getting freelance day jobs in video production (by now I was in the North
Jersey/NYC area). After marriage and kids, it was time to get serious, and
I got a full time job as a telecine backup at Devlin(1978 or so). I didn't
play much at all for the next ten years.
Since coming to Philly I've been able to get back into it. Got some new
equipment (SWR makes a wonderful bass amp!) and hooked up with a brilliant
country guitarist named Joe Dalton. (He writes for Guitar Player...) We've
played a few gigs so far, the farthest in Lumberton, NC opening for Wade
Hayes), and perhaps more will come of it. I'm not really into Country a
lot, but I've enjoyed learning a new style and have come to appreciate the
I play a Fender Precision bass, have no effects pedals, and am not a
virtuoso but I can find a pocket. Never learned how to slap and pop.
Thanks for letting me share this with you all. It's nice to find so many
other musical people here. I find a nice parallel with making music and
making nice pictures happen...
