Sight of Sound Society: James Taylor
Not only is he a rad guy, his candid and colourful photography successfully captures the mad vibes emitting from the local, live music scene. Though the psychedelic haze, we are able recognise the value of these raw moments in time and appreciate them again and again… and again.
At that time I had been shooting local/international bands for about a year. Accumulating photos, I needed a good way to display them. That’s where Glenn approached me and asked to contribute my photos to the page/flickr. We both then collaborated on the second Project ‘Sight Of Sound,’ a 21 page zine & exhibition, which purely features local Perth artists.
Something about light/emotion from the subject truly keeps me inspired.
Theirs so many memorable gigs, I’d have to say, the Gizz fest at the Rosemount with Hideous Sun Demon supporting the King Gizzard dudes. I had a roll of film loaded that was on the last 5 shots, (did have a bit to drink / a few other things), Anyway I finished the roll, got onto Loading the next roll as per-normal, continued to shoot the rest of the gig thinking everything was fine, Until I picked up my film from the developers, to Find out I hadn’t loaded the second roll properly and didn’t get 1 photo off it. The best thing to come out of the ordeal was 1 of the 5 shots taken of HSD i used for the Sight Of Sound Zine, its been named “Reggae Jake”.
At the moment I’m really vibing on Dougals Casino, The Spunloves, Moisteoyster, Kitchen People, The Pissedcolas, Doctopuss, Wheelers of Oz, Mt Mountain, Mudlark & The Darlingrangers – all have the elements of sound that I enjoy.
Sight Of Sound Vol.2 is in the works.
