original idea for his presentation. “One of the great things about
the seminar in New York is that we didn’t tell anyone anything to
expect, and people were like, ‘What the hell is going on here?’ [We
said] let’s do something different and think outside the box.”
Seliger continues: “It’s a multimedia experience, of words and
music written with my band, and then I worked with other pho-
tographers, editors and filmmakers on a visual companion that
reflects a 21st century liner note for the album. It’s a visual jour-
ney of music, with a combination of photography and film, music
and lighting to create a theatrical experience for the viewer.”
The hope is that audience members will be inspired by Seliger’s
images and process of creativity.
“For me it’s always great to share like that, especially when it has
a different experience for people, it’s enjoyable for me,” Seliger says.
“The band has fun with it too.” RF Above: Seliger performing with his alt-country band, Rusty Truck at PDN’s PhotoPlus Expo in New York City, October 2013.
