Ostpolitik 12
Drawing of the remains of the Kaiser Wilhelm memorial church, Berlin. Destroyed by bombs dropped from planes during World War Two. The site of the recent terrorist attack. It served as the final drawing of my 2016 exhibition, Ostpolitik. I should really get around to posting the other drawings from the show. Anyway, it's based on a series of on-site observational sketches I did while in Germany last year. 

Dimensions: 47 x 78 inches (119 x 198 cm)
Medium: Charcoal on paper

Ostpolitik 12, Close-up
Close up of the final drawing of my solo exhibition, Ostpolitik, held in November 2016. I recently got notification that this one is gonna be published in two art catalogues this year, and one of the catalogues asked for a close up of the drawing, so here it is! 

Gah, it's always such a long gap between my posts here--I should honestly log on more often DX

MARIE! Hi! How are you? Don't know if you saw my note, but I sent you those pics I took of you via Skype.
Aaaand nope, never heard of Umbrtka before! ^^; Though they seem to have a TON of albums. Are they good?

I'm pretty fine, having holidays (for 2 weeks). Saw them now.
They are. You might like them.

Awesome! Doing anything for the holidays?
I listened to a bit of them just now, and I'll listen to more later. They're a lot folksier than I expected, but I like it!

I finally watched this video of your brother's band's concert. It was okay but not really special or catching. And a big sorry I needed so long.

Awesome! Yeah, I know what you mean. They're still finding their place with the music and all--they've already fired two singers--but I think they'll get there :) Anyways, haven't heard from you in a long time! How have you been?

Sehr gut, danke ;D Still awkwardly trying to learn German! ^^;
I just secured my first apartment away from my parents! In Berlin! I'm gonna be staying in Berlin for two months. Once it's September I'll start looking for a place in Leipzig and then look for one in Nuremburg a little later. And then Munich XD Very excited (but nervous) to come on this trip! :D Also, I think I got hired to do album art for a drone/dark ambient band (though it isn't confirmed yet).

Alright, cool! This is the band you were telling me about that are using an old friend's artwork as the cover, right? I really like the artwork!
As far as the music goes, I do like it, but only casually. I'd probably listen to it a few times, but then get bored of it. I mean, it's certainly competently played with good instrumentation and vocals, things like that. But to be honest (and not to sound too picky), I find it quite derivative. Early Drudkh and some Xasthur, as well as a bunch of other DSBM bands, sound really similar.  I feel like that spoken-word section, for example, is there just because other bands do it. I could find at least half a dozen DSBM songs with sections almost exactly like it. I do like that odd start/stop section with the pinch harmonics about four minutes into the song, though. But I'd say that they should try pushing for something outside of the norm to help define themselves musically. Right now the only thing I'd say is unique about the music is the punk/groove sort of section they have going on towards the end about nine minutes into the song, and the way it evolves into a sort of climax after a brief silence. They're doing something interesting there, but it isn't fully-realized or fleshed out. Also, this particular song seems to be coming close to over-doing the interludes in several places, so they may want to think about song structure a little more. Like I said though, I like the last three or four minutes! I hope my response doesn't seem too harsh or mean, but maybe it can help them? ^^; Anyway, I can sense interesting things going on in here that I wish were emphasized a little more, and I hope this band can develop and become unique :D

So, are they still in the writing process, or are they recording everything now?

They do NOT do anything because other bands do it. Honestly, that was kinda mean of you. They do it because it expresses them. And as I am really close with them your answer kinda hurt me. But I am happy that you're honest.

They have recorded everything.

Oh, I'm really sorry my answer came across that way! I certainly didn't mean anything personal. :) Like I said, there are things in this track that I find interesting. I also think they have areas where they can improve. That doesn't mean I totally dislike them or anything. I sincerely wish them luck with the release. Please don't be offended :)

In case you don't know them I wanted to recommend:
- Cult of Fire
- Bethlehem
- Dissection

Alright, I'll keep them in mind! :D I've been recommended Dissection before, so I'll listen to them first!
You should listen to one of these two songs by Deadboy and the Elephantmen. Dax Riggs from Acid Bath is the vocalist:

Awesome! I think both songs are nearly perfect XD

I downloaded the second album by Cult of Fire and listened to half of it so far. It's really interesting! I've never come across an entire metal album sung in Hindi! :) Also looked into the crimes around the band Dissection. Shame about the homophobic hate-crime, but being me I'll probably still listen to them at some point. :)

Hey Curtis. Wanted to ask you when exactly you're in Germany/Munich. Thought it would be awesome to go there with you: mrw-concerts.de/dark-easter-me…

OH. MY. GOD. This concert looks incredible! Two of my favourite bands and a bunch of other awesome ones on top of it? 
Anyway... I looked at the date expecting to see a time where I wouldn't be able to come, but... I THINK I MIGHT ACTUALLY BE IN GERMANY THEN. o.O I don't know for sure since I haven't been confirmed for an independent study yet (still have some procedures to go through before I can apply), but I was actually planning on coming to Germany from January-May 2015. And since I haven't made up my mind which cities to see in which order, I could just go to Munich at any time while I'm there. And I would LOVE to go with you! XD I'm actually so excited thinking about seeing those awesome bands with you. 

Anyway, I'll keep you posted about my independent study. I'm planning on organizing a meeting between me and some faculty sometime over December and we'll talk about what I need to get set up to go. From there I would have to put together a really awesome proposal/presentation to convince the staff at my school that I can handle an independent study :) I'll let you know how that goes. 

But yeah, thanks so much for telling me about this! Now I really REALLY hope I get accepted to go to Germany XD

Which of those are your favourite bands?

Tell me as soon as you know if it works. I am so it excited. It would be so awesome to meet you.
Btw: Have you ever met a friend from the internet?

Primordial and Urfaust are two of my favourite bands right now. XD Which of the bands on the line up are your favourite?
I also like Ahab a lot but I've only heard a few of their songs. Desaster and Endstille are decent too. Actually, one of my history teachers at my school likes Ahab a lot too XD

Okay! Well, I just sent an email to a staff member asking if they're free to meet sometime in December to discuss me going to Germany some more so now I'm just waiting for a reply. I have pretty much a full year to get ready to go so there's not too much of a rush yet XD And anyway, yeah, it would be awesome to meet you! It'll be great to be with a friend for a little while in a country I'm not used too--I'm actually a little worried of being lonely while I'm in the other cities. ^^; 

Um, nope, never met a friend from the internet. Well, I actually did meet someone that I initially met online but I only met them because I wanted to photograph them for an art project... not sure if that counts? Have you ever met someone from the internet? Personally I think I'd be pretty nervous--when we meet I'll probably be really shy and awkward!

ZOMIGOD you're so lucky! Are their shows still considered metal concerts, by any chance? I heard their new stuff is almost purely post-rock.

Last Friday I went trick-or-treating for Halloween :D

Not really though that was more obvious in January as they were headliner that time. This Friday they with Opeth. I somewho hardly remember the music but it was good. I was feeling kinda sick and used the music as mediation to forget about my stomach. ^^

It is usual to do so your age in Canada?

Okay, that's interesting. Also cool! We've both seen Opeth now XD When I saw Opeth they told the crowd how Europe is more badass/crazy than Canada :D 
Sick to your stomach at a concert? Well, it's good the music helped I guess! :D

Oh no, it's very unusual for a 20-year-old to trick-or-treat ^^; I just love doing it and don't want to give it up. Usually people trick-or-treat until they're 12-15 here. It doesn't seem to bother anyone that I'm out, plus I was with all my friends. I was actually thinking that if I were to visit Germany in fall I'd trick or treat there XD
