The Bunker: An oral history
01.11.13 | No Comments

Michaelangelo Matos‘ article is finally up on The Resident Advisor site, commemorating ten years of The Bunker’s history. I have been involved in The Bunker for over seven years now, photo documenting most of the events, hosting the party, welcoming artists in our home, and taking care of the flyer design until recently. Needless to say it has been a huge part of my life and also an immense creative outlet.

Sentimental Journey
03.21.12 | No Comments

I made a very sappy mix called “Sentimental Journey” for my dear friend Jane Lerner’s CD club. There are 12 members in the CD Club and each person is designated a specific month to make a mix, create a cover, and mail it to the 11 others across the country. My month was February, of course I got it off on the very last day, which leap year made it the 29th. I wanted to share it digitally. So feel free to download it and have a listen. Here are some photos of the hand painted covers.

Bryan and I were invited to Colorado to play and document the Communikey Festival. I had a fabulous time catching up with old friends, visiting a gorgeous part of the country, eating yummy food, and hearing really good music.

All Tomorrow’s Parties New York September 19-21, 2008
11.06.08 | No Comments

I just found my ATP photos so I wanted to post them even though the concert was weeks ago.  Sorry better late than never!  Bryan and I mostly go to techno parties and performance so it was a nice breath of fresh air to leave the city, barely know anyone in the crowd, and hear some classic guitar bands from our youth. Plus we convinced my parents to buy tickets and come to the festival too. The All Tomorrow’s Parties festival was great but it did not compare to the first time I saw My Bloody Valentine perform when I was 15, and at the time it was one of the loudest shows I have ever been to. Spectrum’s set was the highlight for me.

All photos by Seze.

My parents at the cafe, they actually were having a great time.

I updated the Graphic Design sections on my site www.sdphotography.net. I got this plastic skeleton from a man selling junk on the beach in Antalya, Turkey.  He practically told me his whole life story, and I pretty much bought everything he had to sell because I felt so bad for him. I thought it would be a fun image to use for Halloween, since it is the season of  both mortality and fun.

I finally finished updating my photo and design site www.sdphotography.net. I started the re-design in March so you can understand just why happy I am to have completed it today. Most of my time was spent editing through old and new photography work and compiling all the design work I have done in the past few years. On average, I shoot about 300 photos a week so editing was pretty intense. I used to keep all my freelance work private, I was almost embarrassed to be a fine artist that was making a living though web and graphic design. Art school taught us to avoid commercialism. Ideally, I would like to be best known for my abstract cameraless work, but that is only a tiny part of my entire creative being. Now everything is all so integrated into my life and I don’t feel the need to keep it all so segregated when I present myself to the internet universe. The parties, my personal aesthetics that play a role in how I design, the images I take on a daily basis (some for work and some for pleasure), flyers, cooking, even this blog, they all are a part of my creative entity. They are not a product of a daily job I hate doing for people I can’t stand. I also made this site so my mom can stop wondering “what do you do all day?” So take a look and enjoy in this intricate web of work and play, that I have woven for you.

Twins by Damion Romero

One of my oldest and dearest friends (and long time pen pal from LA) Damion Romero makes beautiful minimal noise music. He used one of my watercolor paintings for the entire gatefold image in his new double LP “Twins.” The original record looks amazing and it is my eleventh record cover collaboration with a musician and my first gatefold image ever.
