one of the great surprise pleasures of facebook:
“You guys might enjoy this. This is a stop-action movie I made in 1979 of a walk through some of the Upper West Side.
I start by walking south on the east side of Broadway from 87th. Then I turn east on 86th St and walk to CPW, then south down CPW along the park. The song was written by me in 1981 for my band “Comateens”. I recorded it in 1988, and then when YouTube came along I realized my film might make a good visual accompaniment for it. -Nicholas West”
i just love how with access to things long since stored away, patience and imagination all these mediums can come together and make something truly more significant than the individual parts might have been at the time…thanks nicholas west! ENJOY!
