Dear former Riffage member: 

In our last newsletter we informed you that Riffage was now part of
loudENERGY. As we've started merging the two websites, it's become
apparent that loudENERGY and Riffage shared many things in common.
However, while loudENERGY has always given artists a place to showcase
their music on the web, our true focus has been devoted to creating
powerful and innovative artist development programs that can take your
band to the next level.

Dear Friends,

First, we want to thank you for your previous support of our
installation, "The Alchemy of Desire," which we presented at the Old San
Ysidro Church in Corrales, New Mexico in the Fall of 2000. Some of you
participated in the actual production, others contributed your "wishes
for the world" which made up a major part of the content of the piece,
and many more of you attended the exhibition or simply offered us words
of encouragement. A few of you even sent us donations to help offset our
costs in creating it. To all of you, we are extremely grateful.

The project was quite successful. Many people from across the social
spectrum of our community came to see it - over 700 visitors in two
weekends! - and they were deeply moved by the work. We, in turn, were
gratified by the enthusiastic responses we got from our audience. There
was an extensive write-up in the Albuquerque Journal, and we later
received glowing reviews in Art in America and The Magazine, Santa Fe's
arts monthly.

Encouraged by this response, we are now engaged in the next step: taking
the work to a larger audience. Although the show was designed for the
San Ysidro Church, we quickly realized that it could, and should, be
presented in other places beyond Albuquerque and New Mexico. We have
been proposing it to museums around the country, and there is some
interest. Most recently, we have quite suddenly been invited to present
the piece at the Nicolaysen Museum in Casper, Wyoming for four months,
beginning in September of this year.

While we are excited about this as the first of many opportunities for
the work to travel, we are also apprehensive about it from a financial
point of view. It may sound terrific, but the reality is that museums
usually pay only for the shipping and hanging of the completed art; they
do not generally pay artists a fee or front them money to make the work
or prepare it for shipping.

In order for this piece to travel, the sound component of the show needs
to be revised so that it is more museum-friendly. The audio system we
used in Corrales worked, but it was bulky and unruly - 10 CD players
which tended to drift out of synchronization. This was fine since we
were always present and could tend to it, but for museums the system
needs to be more compact and maintenance-free, a single unit we can set
up, start, and leave alone. A technological alternative exists, but it
is pricey. The two 12-channel amplifiers we rented for use in Corrales
would have to be purchased in order to be used elsewhere, along with
eight new speakers. Finally, there will be the expense of having
shipping crates made for the brass bowls and steel plates.

We estimate that it will cost approximately $10,000 to do all of this
properly. Our goal is to raise this amount by August 1. This would allow
us just enough time to purchase everything we need and get it all ready
before going to Wyoming to install the piece in the middle of August.
This is of course a rather ambitious goal, but it is a great opportunity
that we feel we should act upon. However, we must act quickly given the
timeline involved.

We are asking you to help us make this great big wish come true by
making a donation and/or by passing this information along to other arts
patrons who might want to contribute. You could also recommend the
project to curators who would be sympathetic to it. If you require more
information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We thank you in advance for your assistance, and for your faith in the
value of our work.
