Four Part Memory is a video composed of four separate video channels synchronized and recorded months or years apart from each other. The piece is based on The Beatles seminal album Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. The entire album was recorded from beginning to end in chronological order, without any interruptions. Each of the four videos is akin to a channel of music or a 4-track audio recorder like the one used by The Beatles. The tracks are as follows: vocal/lyrics, bass, guitar and percussion. All tracks are first takes. A Beatles fan will immediately notice that the piece is not a perfect rendition, but in fact based on memories of sounds and impressions.

I pilfered the candies from a blue chip gallery. The director came by and flipped.
