Learn, Artist! meets Buster Keaton


T. Renner, "Variation for Brien Rats & People," 2008, acrylic on paper, 7" x 5".

Learn, Artist!, the musical group of which I am 1/3, had the opportunity a few months ago to play at Off Broadway as the guests of the Rats & People Motion Picture Orchestra, who were performing their live score to Buster Keaton's film "Go West." Due to a scheduling conflict which had our bassist Gena Brady Allen otherwise occupied, Learn, Artist! was reduced to a duo consisting of myself on "rhythm" guitar and Robin Allen on lead guitar as we played along to a Keaton short called "The Love Nest."

You may listen to our "score" via the magic of MySpace by clicking here.
