Season Zero – Episode Two
Live from The 2014 Olympia Sync Summit
Peter David Connelly of The Mona Reels
& Mark Hosler of Negativland
This episode of Radio8Ball was filmed on August 8, 2014 at Rhythm & Rye in Olympia as the opening event of the 2014 Olympia Sync Summit. Andy Shmushkin hosted the show. The musical guest was Peter David Connelly of the Olympia band The Mona Reels backed by The Radio8Band. The celebrity guest who asked the final question was Mark Hosler of Negativland, a groundbreaking media activist group Will Morgan explored in his sync film collaboration with Bodie Doggins. Ezra Sandzer Bell, the creator of Tone Color Alchemy gave an opening presentation, and the questions came from a rogue’s gallery of classic Olympians, as well as a couple of Sync Summiteers.
That was the event but this is a TV show, and with The Radio8Ball TV Show, the event is only the beginning.
Since 2013 Radio8Ball’s producer, Andras Jones, has been collaborating on the Synchronize podcast for Sync Book Radio with Alan Abbadessa-Green.
In the mean time, inspired by the Sync Central segments he produced for Radio8Ball – Season Zero – Episode One, Alan created Sync Quick News, a continuing short video series exploring the syncs of any given week that has become one of the most popular Sync vidcasts from thesyncbook.com.
For Radio8Ball’s Season Zero – Episode Two, Alan’s Sync Quick News format becomes the new Sync Central, exploring the deeper context of the Radio8Ball event. Now here’s where it gets a little confusing.
The collaboration between Radio8Ball and Sync Quick News created not only Season Zero – Episode Two of The Radio8Ball TV Show but also Season Two of Synchronize for Sync Book Radio. What does this mean to you and your experience of the show? In the words of Edwin Starr, “Absolutely nothing! Say it again.”
And yet, if you find a potent sync in the branding gymnastics necessitated by our mining of synchronicity, honor and commerce, well, that’s why synchromystics show our work. The thing is not the thing unless it is. It’s the thing we make it and with Radio8Ball we are never done making. You’re doing it right now.
If you are ready for a long and twisty exploration of the music and synchronicities we explored the last Friday Michael Brown and Robin Williams were walking the Earth then this is your nightmare.
Enjoy the show.
