RF & GC Completion
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Mon., Feb 29, 2016
Earlier today Robert Fripp posted the following on Facebook.

Re-affirming the belief that Music can change our world, note by note, beat by beat, in Silence and in sound, Robert's work with the Guitar Circle in Mexico was declared complete at 23.13 and 30 seconds.




Completion Of Guitar Craft & The Guitar Circle.
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Fri., Feb 26, 2016

Robert Fripp has posted the following announcement via his Facebook page.

Completion Of Guitar Craft & The Guitar Circle.

I

DGM is planning a Guitar Craft Box Set for release in October 2017 to include a comprehensive selection of recordings and videos from throughout the period.

A key element is written and pictorial material to present the History Of Guitar Craft & The Guitar Circle 1985-2016.

Consider time, place, person and circumstance.

Timeline: 1985-2016. The beginning and unfolding of events. NST.

Courses.
Geography: GC in the US, Europe, Japan, Argentina, Mexico.
Houses: RLH, Elizabeth at the RLH; Alfeldt.

Personal: journals, comments, reports, observations, noticings and Points Of Seeing.

Circumstances / Situations:
Projects: Performance Projects, The LCG, Bogo Tour, The OCG, The SofGC,
Small groups: CGT, Gauchos, Big Time, Zum et al.

Local Circles:
Seattle Residential Performance Project.

The Guitarist Inside: the place of Morning Sitting, Inner Exercises.
SSGs, AADs.

Bodywork in GC: Alexander and T’ai Chi.
The role of women in GC.

Robert’s primary written contribution will be The Guitar Circle book;
with translations where available.

Worthwhile ventures and undertakings are subject to the laws of process: they go off course. Forms of organization and expression become fixed, sclerotic and ossify. This is especially so when the Founder, and/or moving forces in a venture, leave.

For the creative current that moves through GC, to continue in an authentic and living fashion, the recognisable GC forms must change. My own work and participation in GC courses and projects completes in October 2016.

GC has its 31st. anniversary on March 25th. 2016. It is in its fifth 7-year cycle, entering its Great Divide. I propose that, as of March 25th. 2017, all formal structures connected to Guitar Craft and The Guitar Circle will cease to exist: no more Guitar Circles, no more Orchestras Of Crafty Guitarists, no more League Of Crafty Guitarists, and so on.

Compiling The History Of Guitar Craft, in the Guitar Craft Box Set, I see as part of the process necessary to carry the GC current through its Great Divide. Forms, vehicles and structures will be different on the other side, with their own names, originating from and through those who wish to find new ways of working with the GC current.

Guitar Craft will cease to exist, again.
The Guitar Circle will cease to exist, as will local Guitar Circles.

III

Meanwhile, the GC Box Set is on the way.

Hernan is responsible with his Team for assembling audio and video material from throughout the period.

Various Team members are looking at how best to bring together recollections and personal histories. All those who have participated in GC activities are invited to contribute. Where these contributions do not become part of the Box Set printed History, it may become part of a GC archive available on the DGM website.

DGM is looking at having the written, audio and visual material available in outline by the end of 2016; compiled in presentable formats by March 25th. 2017; when Guitar Craft, The Guitar Circle and its offshoots will formally cease to exist.

In actuality, GC will most likely have already completed its work before then; and new forms begun to appear that carry the recognisable creative current which has moved through Guitar Craft since the beginning.

FRAME BY FRAME - Calling all film-makers
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Feb 25, 2016
DGMLive is calling for creative, talented film-makers to generate imaginative video footage to accompany key tracks from King Crimson’s extensive back catalogue which we will be soon uploading to our Youtube channel.

The rules of this exciting opportunity to collaborate with King Crimson’s music is simple: the footage submitted for inclusion in the video must be wholly original rather than taken from existing copyrighted sources. 

It doesn’t matter what your preferred medium or format is: abstract, black and white, narrative, animation, figurative, abstract, hand-held iPhone footage, whatever!

What we’re looking for is an original vision to accompany original, visionary music.

In keeping with our well-documented views on copyright,  anyone submitting material would retain all the rights to their original footage.  DGMLive would simply want the right to add the resulting video and music to our Youtube channel and other social media platforms.

Any other uses beyond that would be mutually agreed on a case by case basis.

Get in touch with iona@dgmhq.com who will guide you through the submission process.

What Goes Around Comes Around...Again
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Feb 21, 2016
The ever-churning newsround that is social media means that every now and then some items from the past get thrown to the surface. One of these is a reminder of the "lost" remake of Jean Luc Godard's Alphaville, that was to have starred Debbie Harry and Robert Fripp, here eulogised by the sometimes hilariously misinformed  Dangerous Minds website.

Elsewhere, and previously newsed on another occasion, comes this take on Fripp recording Heroes with Bowie.

Finally, John Dilberto's 1987 interview with Fripp for Electronic Musician, comes back around, discussing, appropriately enough, Frippertronics and much else besides.
