In Memoriam

FacebookTwitterPinterest

A couple of weeks ago, I caught a series of experimental musicians at Dr. Clock’s Nowhere Bar, a favorite haunt in Adams Morgan.  The bands were playing a memorial party in honor of Jeffrey Prosser, a D.C. graphic designer and musician who died suddenly in April 2015.  Friends and family of Jeffrey attended and the vibe was of camaraderie and mutual support.  It was a beautiful night.

Tag Cloud, a local drone musician, kicked things off with a thick and somber set.

Shooting at Dr. Clock’s can often be a challenge given its minimal lighting and the arrangement of the room.  Since there is no stage, being unobtrusive while shooting is difficult.  I opted for minimal flash usage so as not to temporary blind those in attendance, which resulted in some long handheld exposures.

Cory O’Brien provided the most experimental sounds of the evening, using a cymbal mounted on a turntable.

All in all, it was a memorable night, filled with hugs, anecdotes, and great music.
