complete as possible, explaining the concepts involved and may include
text, drawings, diagrams, photographs, videos, songs, spells... you
get the idea.
F-SPACE - "Bleeding Rays of Dawn", "Soundtrack of the
Apocolypse" and "Tripping on Wires" performances, plus
FINAL REPUBLIC - " Post-Nuclear Desert Trace"
We've heard it so many times
in the past few years at BurningMan: "Where oh were is the music!?".
We don't mean the incesent thump thump of the Rave rampage, or the dried
up derivative soundsystems. We mean, where is the SOUND created by and
for the desert/BM experience, aimed directly at shoving the group mind
over the brink into ecstatic states of pure bliss?
Our goal at Burning Man is and has been (since 1993) to fill this void.
The photos from Burning Man 2004 show our current basic setup. We will
be performing several different sets of material. We have a portable
sound and light system. We setup anywhere on the Playa and DESTROY through
audio and visual performance. We are able to integrate ourselves into
other artists environments (see photos below). This will allow our post-nuclear
post-punk aura to serve as the "house band" for BORG2. The
performance incorporates the drive of rock/post-punk music with SCOT
JENERIK's unique self built instruments of FIRE and STEEL. SCOT is engulfed
in flames while the unique harmonic sounds pummel from the PA. This
provides a very visceral experience for the audience. The raw, primal
power lends itself well to collaboration with other fire/industrial
artists, especially visual artists.
"Bleeding Rays of Dawn" is a series of audio songs/works targetting
(loosely) Cormac McCarthy style desolation, alienation, decay and transcendence.
These are all new pieces that have not been performed before on the
"Soundtrack of the Apocolypse" incorporates older F-SPACE
material from the last 2 years, targetting this years artwork by the
Flaming Lotus Girls
"Tripping on Wires" is an art piece F-SPACE is putting together
for the RIGGED aerial art show at the How to Destroy the Universe Festival
- Part 4 June 23-25 at the Shipyard in Berkeley, CA.
FINAL REPUBLIC has a more arid desert surf sound, along the lines of
the MERMEN, but pre-dating them back to the desert and other industrial
shows we performed in 1981-1984.

The new material and instruments
have been created over the last year through self funding. Several new
instruments are being built now. June 25, 2005 is the expected milestone
for the new Wired and Back Beat instrument. Volatile and Thor are already
repaired from last year.Everything is ready to go. Only thing needed
is the Truck rental and securing the fuel.
- Cleanup Plan - In accordance with Earth Guardian standards. 10% of
total grant will be held back until the completion of Leave No Trace
The beauty of our artwork
is that it is based entirely around propane, electricity/lights and
sound. It is a transient, temporary state of bliss. So the only by product
are some green house gasses and some memories. All of our equipment
breaks down and stores in the truck. We leave no trace durning and after
every show. We actually clean up all the crap other people leave around
our performance area, so we leave it CLEANER than when we arrive. SCOT
has attended Burning Man since 1993, and much of the rest of the group
since 1996. Everyone involved is well versed in the Leave No Trace policy.
