Brent & I had been through Columbus Ohio before with Gravity in a last minute decision on our way down to install the set in Arizona way back when! This time, with band in tow, we performed the live version in the very same film theater in the depths of the Wexner Center for the Arts! The Wexner is an amazing contemporary art museum who I wish I had a chance to spend more time with! Their film programming is perfection, the art they have on view is superbly curated and very much on the forefront of what people are doing artistically and every single person who works there is undoubtedly the nicest! Their current show of the apocalyptic bio murals of Alexis Rockman looks insane and the delicate little worlds of terrariums by Paula Hayes beamed out as hopeful little messages into the museum lobby. Maybe one day we can come through town with time to spare and I can really take in the wonders of the Wexner!

As for the Gravity show...another strange, new musical territory that we haven't really delved into before! It never ceases to amaze me the range of music we've produced for this film, so much so that there is some talk of releasing a recording of a live Gravity soundtrack so others can share in understanding the diversity of musical changes! Before we move onto the next city though a special thank you to Dave from the Wexner for being a lovely host/film scholar, North Market for having way too many options of the best of all that is culinary and to the musician behind Time and Temperature who I wasn't able to shower with musical praise due to just plain exhaustion! Your voice is so pretty Val! So, so pretty!  Overall Columbus has taught me that I need to spend more time with it so I can appropriately thank it for all of it's hidden splendor!
