"Prophecies of Blank" is a 3 part series created and released this summer 2016 with some new paintings!


"Eyes of the Night"


Yelp violates your 1st amendment rights by unfairly blocking your reviews. Of 68 reviews total only 34 are recommended and 34 are not recommended and do not effect the overall rating. 9 out of 68 are negative and 59 positive reviews. To put it in perspective, yelp blocks 50% of all reviews and blocks a much higher percentage of positive reviews than negative. They only recommend 46% of positive reviews while recommending 78% of the negative. 


It is an unfair evaluation of my service and a violation of your first amendment rights! Yelp offered to manipulate my page and search results for just over $1000 per month which is a cost I am not willing to pay or pass down to you. Large companies can pay this price but little guys like me can not. 

Consumers pay the ultimate price. The yelp system effectively puts small guys out of business because they can not weather negative reviews the way a large business can. Small businesses have fewer reviews so they count a lot more. Large businesses can and do pay Yelp to manipulate their pages. 

As small businesses fail you are left with fewer options and higher prices. If you are a yelper you have done this to yourself, even when you leave positive reviews you are a part of a system that is designed to hurt you.  

I am not against people reviewing businesses online, I am for people being able to voice their opinions and celebrate their first amendment rights. My yelp rating is not bad but I have 5 out of 5 stars on google and google maps because they do not block peoples voices in the way that yelp does. 

Please avoid using yelp and enjoy some art and floydian punk by me. I recommend using headphones for the best listening experience. These recordings were made using just one microphone. 


"Cave Dwellers"
"Cave Dwellers" is the first in a 3-part series, "Prophecies of Blank." It expresses the possible outcome of our world continuing in its current direction without change. Nuclear and environmental destruction leaves a few lone survivors who will have to start all over and live as cave dwellers for many generations; all information, data, books, and religions are lost. Dark, I know, but we still can change our path.


"Worship Mountain"
Part 2 of 3, "Worship Mountain," is a painting of the future after humans have spent generations surviving in caves.  All information is lost including books, the internet and organized religion.  Continents break up as a result of fracking and nuclear blasts;  volcanoes erupt. The mountains are seen as the giver and also the taker of life.  We begin to worship them and build pyramids once again like our ancient ancestors did.  Humanity is forced to live in the present or face extinction.



"Purple Glacier" 
Part 3:  In a future dominated by man's greatest mistake there is a remarkable beauty in the glaciers stained nuclear purple.

Multi instrumental looping begins with the rhythmic sounds of painting

Here and Now begins in the final phase of a Caribbean beach in the wee hours of the morning but is by no means the end, just the beginning. Tuned to 432hz in harmony with the universe.

Here are a few new paintings!

Painting Loops Live

Fernin Blank creates live music based on the sounds of painting.

With no regard to convention, using a paint brush and a mic to set the loop and building drum, vocal, bass, guitar, trumpet and clarinet layers to create new music never heard before.

This is the first recording and music to be created by recording and looping the sound of painting. The rhythmic sound of painting becomes the core layer for improvisational music. 


Here is the final painting, named Cecil after our lost friend in Africa. 


Below is a segment of Fernin Blank's Debut live performance in Brooklyn Aug 2015. The painting on the left, Fellow was my first painting to find a new home, went to a friend at the end of the night. 




This is how the one on the right turned out in the end.

Fernin Blank conducts pyramid wireless energy experiment!


Fernin Blank conducts small scale energy experiment based on ancient Bosnian and Egyptian Pyramid technology. It is displayed in reverse time to the song Organize tuned to 432hz. Small units could potentially receive and transmit wireless energy from larger transmitting stations. Small units could power homes and cars and completely eliminate our dependance on foreign energy. This video is a call to our brightest minds to continue this research and make this a viable option!

"Organize" is an end of summer Fernin Blank jam capturing the drift as we go from summer break and back to school and work. Its a circus tune from 2114. I was again tuned to 432hz and I do tend to organize EVERYTHING after hearing it a few times.

New video "Heal" released today!


Happy summer and to the 4rth of July! This one is a true Floydian Punk tune, completed using shitty instruments and broken recording gear. Somehow pulled this off without smashing the rest of my gear and had so much fun making this. My feelings on this can be summarized with a famous quote, "Thank you and have a nice day" JY.

Who We Are released this fine Sunday night on the full moon.


Please download the audio free and share the video!



The lyrics were written on Dec. 25 2013. I was home alone while my baby was at work and these lyrics came in a holiday spirit. I chose "Its a Wonderful Life" because of how much this film means to my love Katrina and because of the films copyright history as well as its relation to the song.

 The film was a flop in the box office and after it entered into the public domain it gained popularity due to its continuous broadcasting through the holiday season. In 1993 it was swept away from under our feet due to a supreme court case pertaining to another film. A holiday tradition gone in a blink of the eye and barely anyone noticed. The film is still in the public domain though the copyright to the underlying story has been enforced by a major network. I believe when something enters into the public domain it should be protected at all costs. The public domain is there in the first place to protect artistic works and historical documents so they may benefit future generations. This movie exists in the public domain and I believe it still belongs to "We the people" and should remain a holiday tradition. Its a shame the Supreme Court system has used their power to benefit the few and take away from all Americans, what used to be a holiday tradition. Please download and view for free from the public domain and keep the holiday tradition alive!

The footage is remixed to the underling story in this song. Its about the divide between the rich and the poor and the misunderstanding and prejudices on both sides. Its about both of those sides reaching out and realizing that we create a better world when we work together instead of against each other. Its about the Universe responding.

Fernin Blank brings creates clay animation!


I hope you guys will have as much fun with this as I did.  My first ever official video, single and claymation release!  I've always wanted to do one and I really learned a lot as I went along.   Tuned to Verdi's 432hz tuning aka Scientific Tuning for ear pleasure.  The song is about living in the now and doing the things you love in the present and always doing them. It was recorded in one take on October 9th 2013 by looping all the instruments live.

Special thanks to Yohei Goto for making this mix of 1 mic and the looper output work well. Also thank you to the beautiful Katrina Wagner for doing such a great voice over.

Happy holidays to all.  I need a big blow up snowman and some plastic reindeer to go with the sound reactive lights going up for the next release!!  I picked the brain of former band mate Myles de Bastion and thank him and Cymaspace for sharing ideas and help getting some of the lights to work.

In the words of Ben Franklin, "as we enjoy great advantages from the inventions of others, we should be glad of an opportunity to serve others by any invention of ours; and this we should do freely and generously."
 
Download the audio free!! Just enter $0 for free download. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated but I am very happy to share and hope you share with all. I will use all donations to upgrade the recording and live performance gear so there may be better and better recordings to share  freely.

Making music and videos has been possible partly due to my work with www.headphonerepair.com . I have almost received 1000 headphones since 2012 and that's a lot of money and waste saved from the dump!
