This episode happened synchronistically with news of Tom Petty’s passing. Two weeks prior, I had just seen Petty perform for the first time ever, at the KAABOO Festival, for what could have possibly been his last live performance. He was a thrilling energy to be in the midst of. Soo many memories through the decades of hearing his songs on the radio and in music videos showed up all at once. I didn’t realize until seeing him live, just how many hits he’s created, that we’re all familiar with, so many soundtracks for so many moments in our lives. It felt great to hear mobs of music-goers spanning so many generations, all singing along to his melodies, along with my family and friends. This “KAABOO” episode shares the audio of one of Petty’s timeless classics, recorded that monumental night!

There was an abundance of amazing art, comedians, arcade games, hybrid humanimal creatures, music and performance art happening in various places about KAABOO. If you took photos of some sculptures with your flash, a hidden designs appeared!

In addition to Petty, some notable musicians I got a chance to see, were Jane’s Addiction, Pete Yorn, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Michael McDonald, Muse, Pink, Eric Burdon from The Animals, Fishbone and others (some of which are played during this episode).

In addition to broadcasting audio on Chinatown’s 1630AM KCHUNG Radio, and streaming live on their website, this 10-2 episode also simultaneously motion-pictured itself in a digital visual format through Periscope. Another intriguing synchronicity happened with this episode. I had recently come across Robert Moss, a Shaman who talks about traveling through dreams and also contacting those who have passed. I planned to play his stuff during the broadcast, long before I heard about Tom Petty.  As you know, the Celebrity Afterlife Report Podcast with the Celebrity Medium, is a staple of Inspirado Projecto. The information braided together quite uniquely. As you know we are always enthused to play music/spoken word that is suggested to us through Twitter, our email, on the bus, etc. We played a wonderful collaboration between A.J. and Tara, a cover of a Roy Orbison classic by Katie Shorey (phenomenal singer/songwriter and the frontwoman for Twisted Gypsy the Fleetwood Mac Tribute), an astounding experimental sound collage by one of PQ Ribber‘s many projects: Boys Nitroglycerine Pep Club, information about the upcoming Yachtley Crew show at Borderline Bar & Grill November 3rd, new Fun Facts by our Resident Trivia Expert and Traveler Henry D. Horse, and a wholesome song by the Cactus Blossoms from Twin Peaks: The Return. There are of course, many other surprises as well!

(Alec Smart/Sherman Sitter and Captain Nicholas did an outstanding job steering the KCHUNG Ship across the Galaxywaves, 9-18, in their melodic episode: “Know Your Dragons”  as well as their stream-of-orchestration: “After Thoughts“. A piece of that episode is found in this episode.)

On today’s Inspirado Projecto episode, “Parallax”, on KCHUNG RADIO, we welcomed my fellow Columbia College Chicago Alumn, and Mastermind of RogersOrion Management, Orion Barnes! We reminisced about being Directed in the play “Ivanov” by our Mentor and head of the Columbia Theatre Department , Sheldon Patinkin, (and how Sheldon’s teachings aided us in applying ensemble-based collaboration). We engaged intriguing conversations about: the upcoming May 21st Twin Peaks Season 3 (in conjunction with Orion’s personal story about David Lynch’s encounter with Orion’s Sister’s Woodland Creature), his upcoming projects, outstanding synchronicities, his experiences with being in Steppenwolf Theatre’s production of “Slaughterhouse Five” by Kurt Vonnegut (and then what it was like to meet Vonnegut after a performance one night).

We presented a unique sound collage by Brett E Berman’s and Shaman Q‘s new project “Boy’s Nitroglycerine Pep Club” and displayed the new advert for the upcoming KaPow Intergalactic Film Festival, played an old King Missile classic which most likely inspired Loreena Bobbit, mentioned alternate reality games, talked about cross-over youniverses with parallel stories found with subjects such as Hamlet by Shakespeare!

KCHUNG Computer Technical difficulties prevented today’s audio episode, “Parallax” with Orion Barnes on Inspirado Projecto, from archiving. The GREAT NEWS IS we captured the FULL behind-the-scenes all VIDEO version of this show on Periscope. It has been archived HERE.
