I'm so excited for this years Art Outside Festival in Austin. It's always one of my favorite experiences of the year, and this year they have an array of new surprises in Music, Performance, and Visual Art, including the new stage show I'm directing with Crash Alchemy. Check out our discount code for tickets. "crash".

The new show features unbelievable dancers, top-notch aerialists, fire artists and character performers in a narrative-driven musical performance. For some of the show, we'll be merging the worlds of performance, fine art, and technology using projection mapping, real-time interactive video, and interactive animation. Check out our new promo video here:


Plus, on the eve of unveiling a new show I am directing at Art Outside, I just got the news that the the PBS episode covering the last show I Directed and Produced in association with Sky Candy, Land Without Evil, has been nominated for a Lonestar Emmy for Best Cultural Documentary! Feeling pretty blessed right now. The television program, Arts in Context, is unbelievable - TV that still makes you feel something magical - and I encourage you to watch more than our episode. Here's the link to our episode, "Sky Candy".



Crash Alchemy, my new performance collective, has specially crafted a new 30 minute stage show for Art Outside 2013, to be performed Friday night on the Main Stage at 8:30pm. Art Outside has generously given us a $10 discount on weekend passes using the discount code "crash" at:


Here's why your friends and family and fans should go to Art Outside:

The price. Tickets are only $80 with the code for the entire weekend, including free parking and water onsite. It is family-friendly, and kids under 12 are free. You will camp there, but the grounds are mild, green, and easily walkable, shaded, and clean. There are hotels 15 minutes drive away if you have people who prefer that. There are also free showers at the venue. There are also RV passes available. That's 3 nights of camping - so cheap.

Lot's of cool art. Art Outside has an amazing array of visual art pieces and installations from all over the United States, as well as a kick-ass gallery. Plus tons of live painters of all kinds, from fine art to street art.

Lot's of music of all kinds. There will be 3 stages - the main stage has a variety of music, including some hip-hop, progressive and alternative live music, folk, funk, and electronic. There will also be a dome with electronic music - mostly mid-tempo to chill bass, glitch, trap, eastern, physch, visionary stuff. No ravers or house music or techno. There will be a custom-deigned folk stage of epic proportions with a mix of quality folk, world, roots, americana, comedy, and vaudeville. The music will have good options nearly 24 hours a day, plus there are workshops and classes, plus some spoken word, comedy, and performance :)

It's easy and reasonable to survive there. You can bring food or buy from vendors. They are reasonably priced unlike most festivals, and all local privately owned little vendors.

Crash Alchemy is doing an amazingone of a kind show there. Trust us, it's a good one and of a scale to not be produced at most events in Austin. Come on out an experience it with us!

See you at Art Outside!

I am an artist!! And so are you...

Agent Red was a name given to me many years ago for so so many reasons that fit. One main reason I feel close to my names is that at the time, I identified with myself as a someone who's purpose it was to spread "benevolent propaganda", to open the potential for positive change through the malleable state of entertainment. When we are being entertained, we are open and vulnerable to change and impression, there is an opportunity for positivity and learning in that space. Now I see things a little bit deeper, and am pushing further from entertainment toward the realms of experience and interaction. Giving the "audience" responsibility to interact, using technology to make it simple and extend the reach, and using expression, art, and design as the endless medium under it all. 

I am currently inspired to focus on directing performances, experiences, and interactive shows, events, and installations through Clever Maven, continuing evolutions of Land Without Evil, and a new project in Austin, Crash Alchemy.

Crash Alchemy is where performance, music, fine art, and technology merge in an interactive environment. We are so excited to be previewing our amazing new cast and some new material in a preview of this new kind of event in Austin, TX on May 18, 2013.


Plus, I am finally finished editing the entire full-length performance of Land Without Evil on video and we'll be screening it as well on the 18th! We know more than a few people missed the original performance, or have a new interest inspired by the PBS Arts in Context episode. This video will not be put online anytime soon and this screening is an exclusive chance to see the entire show. Crash Alchemy will be creating an interesting environment for guest and it promises to be an amazing an unique experience. An RSVP is required to attend this private event at a secret East Austin location. See you on the 18th!!



The PBS' Arts in Context episode focusing on Sky Candy and Land Without Evil premiered in Austin on KLRU on January 31st at 7:30pm, watch it below!

We'll be sure to let you know the national air date when we know more, as well as keep you updated on the release of videos and other media from the show.

Watch Sky Candy on PBS. See more from KLRU.

If you haven't been able to check my recent news, Land Without Evil is a narrative driven aerial theatre and multimedia experience I adapted from award winning novel by Matthew Pallamary and Co-produced and Co-directed with Sky Candy in Austin, TX. And our first run in Austin was amazing.

Stephen Moser from the Austin Chronicle said,

"There were moments of sheer brilliant magic
that left me gasping for breath."


Wow. As if it isn't inspiring enough to collaborate with such a talented group of performers, musicians, and artists... The reaction to the show has been overwhelming so far and I can't wait to see what's ahead!


New Song, New Album,
