Roswell High School student create small works for the public to pocket

By Tess Townsend Record Staff Writer

t's Thursday afternoon, two days after the Jan. 14 shooting at Berrendo Middle School. Roswell High School 10th-grader Feth Huckabee, 15, is sitting at a table in the high school's art room. She's making decals with coyote paw prints on one side and bull dog paw prints on the other. "This is kind of, you know, scary for them," she says in regard to students at Berrendo. Huckabee is one of about 10 RHS students and community members involved in Free Art Friday, an after school club organized by RHS Art Teacher Jessica Parham. The objective of FAF is for members to create small pieces of art to be placed in public spaces and removed by members of the public as they wish. As the name implies, all items are free.

"It's kind of a global thing," said Parham. Parham became acquainted with the concept when she lived in Albuquerque. She says it's common in large cities throughout the world. She brought the program to RHS, where she started teaching this fall, after students approached her asking about continuing the art club that they had participated in during years past. "I decided it'd be nice to have some sort of goal in meeting every week," the teacher said. FAF kicked off in November with students tucking pieces into whatever nooks and crannies they could find in the Roswell Civic Center auditorium during the Pecos Valley Potters Guild Art Sale. Some weeks, the FAF members SEE

country musicʼs most storied careers. Behind the string of hit records, the roomful of awards and the critical and fan accolades that have defined his phenomenal success lies a connection that goes beyond his undeniable talent and his proven knack for picking hits. Since the days when “Lifeʼs A Dance” turned him from an unknown artist into a national star, John

Michaelʼs rich baritone has carried that most important of assets–believability. Few artists in any genre sing with more heart than this handsome Kentucky-born artist. It is readily apparent in love songs that have helped set the standard for a generation. Songs like “I Swear,” “I Love the Way You Love Me” and “I Can Love You Like That” still resonate across the land-

“Hometown Proud”

scape–pop icon and country newcomer Jessica Simpson cited “I Love The Way You Love Me” as an influence in a recent interview. It is apparent in the 2004 hit “Letters From Home,” one of the most moving tributes to the connection between soldiers and their families ever recorded, and in “The Little Girl,” a tale of redemption that plumbs both the harrowing and the uplifting. It is apparent even in the pure fun that has always found its way into John Michaelʼs repertoire–songs like “Be My Baby Tonight” and “Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident),” where John Michaelʼs vocal earnestness takes musical whimsy to another level. The performance will be at 7:30 p.m. at the Artesia High School Auditorium. Tickets are $30. For more information call the OPAC at 575-746-4212.

A

n upcoming Spanish language film series at the Roswell Museum and Art Center promises works of drama, horror and comedy by inter nationally acclaimed directors to Roswell--all for free. Dramatico film series will run at 2 p.m. Sundays Feb. 223 at RMAC, next to the Roswell Civic Center. "These are all very wonderful films," said Stephen Vollmer, interim director of the museum. "I think people are going to find all of these films ... artistically very strong. They've got great content." All films will show with subtitles in English. Some include English dialogue in select scenes. RMAC Curator of Education Meredith Bennett said one goal of choosing Spanish-language movies for the Winter film series is to better connect with local Spanish speakers. "Sombras de Azul" (2013) is among the films playing. The award-winning film explores a young Mexican woman's travels in Cuba after her brother's suicide. RMAC's showing of the film constitutes the New Mexico premier of the piece. Writer/director Kelly Daniela Norris, of Vista, Cali., refers to the film as "emotionally true," though the plot is fiction. Norris said making the film in 2011 served as her overdue process of grieving

the 2007 death of her brother. "It just seemed easier to write about my own grief but through the facade of someone else's," she said. She set the story in Cuba because her brother had always wanted to visit the island. Dialogue in "Azul" is in Spanish, save a few scenes in English. Norris wrote the script in English then had it translated. Though her mother immigrated to the U.S. from Mexico, Norris did not grow up speaking Spanish in her home. Her knowledge of the language comes from classes in school. The series in February will also include films "No" (2012), "El Espinazo del Diablo" (1993) and "El Angel Exterminador" (1962). Vollmer said he was particularly excited about "Angel," directed by Luis Buñuel. "There's always a great deal of comedy or irony, but often a lot of things to consider and study when you come out of one of his films," said Vollmer. "Diablo" is set during the Spanish Civil War and directed by Guillermo del Toro of "Pan's Labyrinth" fame. Bennett said the collection of films offers a variety to keep every palate satisfied. "They're all dramatic films and they're all award winners, but I wanted to make sure there was something in there for everyone," she said. The series is sponsored by the RMAC Foundation.

The Anderson Museum kicks off the 2014 Xcellent Music Series with a fun sound experiment

L

By Rey Berrones Vision Editor

ast year, the Xcellent Music Series kicked off with a very well recieved event called "The Music of Sound." At this event, participants came with instruments and objects that were used to make noises of all types, which were then transformed into music by the conductor Ken Field. One of the attendees was Ven Voisey, who was a fellow with the Roswell Artist-inResidence program. He par-

ticipated, and it turns out that this community jam with found sounds was right up his alley. Voisey said, "I was there as an audience member and participant. It was what spurred the conversation between Nancy, Sue and myself. "I had brought a big box of bottles. They really liked that

it was not a traditional instrument, and that spurred this conversation that ended up in this event." Thus "The Music of Sound 2" was born. Voisey, who uses ambient sound as part of his art installations has taken the original idea and expanded on it. When elaborating on "The Music of Sound 2," Voisey

said, "It is going to be a live sound experience. We will be doing one piece with contact microphones. So, amplifying the sounds of objects so that you can hear more intimately the details of the sound that you might not hear without amplification. "We will also be approaching acoustic anti-instrumentation of various objects. Whatever sounds we can conjure out of household objects." These household objects may even include spoons, which has made the crossover into the realm of instrument. Voisey expanded, "There is a long history of crossover, and this is not a new idea. At the same time, while spoons are considered a regular instrument, they don't make it into the top ten too often." In addition to becoming part of the performance, and being an active participant, everyone involved will have the chance to become a passive listener when Voisey creates an installation featuring the recording made at the performance. "We are going to record the performance we do as a community. My hope is to record

it in quadraphonic sound so that we can then create a temporary installation at the Anderson Museum featuring the music we create." A large number of last year's participants were children, and they are welcome again this year, although children under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult. Voisey is open to everyone in the community coming, and even noted that listeners are also welcome. "The Music of Sound 2" will be performed by the community from 2 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. at the Anderson Museum located at 409 E. College Blvd. Please bring any "found" item that can make a sound. For more information, on Ven Voisey and his work, visit v--v.net. On Feb. 15 Voisey will also present Dust and Light, at the Roswell Museum and Art Center. It is a one-afternoononly free performance/installation of video and sound within the Robert H. Goddard Planetarium which takes elements from Tiros Won!'s debut collection of songs by Voisey.

Films will be shown at 2 p.m. Admission is free. Sodas and popcorn will be provided. This program is sponsored by the Roswell Museum and Art Center Foundation. ` Jan. 26: El ngel exterminador After his classic Viridiana (1961) stirred up controversy in Spain, prolific surrealist writer-director Luis Buñuel returned to Mexico for the filming of El ángel exterminador. Deadpan comedy and situational absurdity may veil the weighty symbolism of its never-ending dinner party, but no matter its meaning, El ángel exterminador continues to spellbind audiences and influence filmmaking. Feb. 2: No No is a 2012 Cannes Art Cinema Award winner and the final film in Chilean writer-director Pablo Larraínʼs “unintentional trilogy” set during Chileʼs Pinochet period (1973-1990). Manohla Dargis of The New York Times called this cross between documentary and fiction “Weirdly funny and rousing, both intellectually and emotionally.” Gael García Bernal (The Science of Sleep, The Motorcycle Diaries) stars as the fictional Rene Saavedra, a successful yet naïve advertisement creator. 11 >>


>>10 Feb. 9: El espinazo del diablo Mexican writer-director Guillermo del Toro captured the worldʼs attention with his dark fantasy Panʼs Labyrinth (2006). El espinazo del diablo is its more personal predecessor, also set during the Spanish Civil War. Steven Ray of The Philadelphia Inquirer wrote, “The Devilʼs Backbone is a tale of the supernatural that feels completely natural. Its realness is what makes it so scary.” Feb. 23: Sombras de Azul The inspiration for Kelly Daniela Norrisʼs first feature film, Sombras de Azul, was her late brother. Norris set the tender and poetic study of mourning in Cuba, where he had aspired to travel. This will be the New Mexico premiere of the Texas Independents Audience Award winning film.

Inn of the Mountain Gods

Country music singer-songwriter Gary Allan may be Southern California born, but heʼs got the heart and voice of a true Nashville country superstar. Almost a year after releasing his ninth studio album, “Set You Free,” Allan will perform for one special night at Inn of the Mountain Gods. With 26 Billboard Hot Country Songs to his name, Allan draws heavily from what he calls “the evolution of getting better,” mixing honky-tonk bravado and grainy isolation, all the while mining the emotional turf that fuels a life welllived. Of those 26 hits, five of them reached #1 including “Man to Man,” “Tough Little Boys,” “Nothing on but the Radio,” “Watching Airplanes,” and “Every Storm Runs Out of Rain.” Other hits you can look forward to hearing include his cover of Vertical Horizonʼs “Best I Ever Had” and “Right Where I Need to Be.” His unwavering uniqueness has earned him seven gold albums and three platinum, amongst raves and praises from fans and critics across the world of country. If his music isnʼt enough for you, Allan was also recently named “Countryʼs Sexiest Man” in “Country Weekly” magazineʼs 2013 poll.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT By Amy Vogelsang Record Staff Writer

Everything is finally coming together for local band Seek is guitar rested on a pair of ripped jeans as his fingers expertly danced across the strings. “We need to feel this,” he said, demonstrating the physical concept of “feel” with his calloused fingers, but bringing a new meaning to the phrase when his entire body started moving to the beat. It was apparent that Nick Larsen has a connection with music that surpasses merely singing in the shower or grooving in the car with a steering wheel as a drum set. Lucky for Nick, he has been given the opportunity to make music his life by creating a band: “Seek.” Originally a duo with his now wif e Melissa Larsen, “Seek” was so named after Melissa’s

maiden name. She is a classically trained clarinet player, and when they started playing together in 2009 the cohesion between them was not so strong. Melissa is a symphony musician, but Nick, in his own enthusiastic way, claimed to know nothing about music. “I play everything by ear and feeling,” he stated. “I just do what I think sounds good.” This conflict left them with a year of fighting — a “comfortable clash” Nick called it. But then one day, “it just happened,” Melissa explained. And so “Seek” was created. At the end of 2013, the couple added a drummer, Donny Simmons, and a bass player, Seth Poush, to complete the ensemble. With the team assembled, they have been working on creating their first EP, “just to get something out there,” Nick stated. They have been able to use the studio of Secret Circus band members Joel and Klas Åhman, a location they agree is better than Nick’s garage. Nick’s unique soulful and

almost mournful sounding voice echoed around the small studio as they worked out a “dummy track,” a track used only to help in the recording process. After this par ticular dummy track, Nick explained that he doesn’t like wasting his voice, so he doesn’t really sing for dummies. “T hat’s what he says f or me when I ask him to sing — he doesn’t sing for dummies,” Klas joked. And even though both may be true, Nick’s voice still held emotion as the band started the early sessions of recording “Dogs,” a song about the war and how soldiers are treated “like dogs,” Nick said. Drummer Simmons describes their blues folksy music as a mix between the Tools, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and T he Black Keys. And the song lyrics – written by Nick — usually reflect life experiences. This is especially true with their song “Addict.” About being addicted to heroin, Nick calls it a “mantra for addicts.” And it’s a song that he holds close. SEE

“I lost a lot of fr iends because of my addiction,” he elaborated. “And I think everyone knows someone who has str uggled with addiction.” But writing the songs is not always easy, even if he does have life to inspire content. The challenge is capturing what goes on in his mind. “Stuff plays through my head, and I want to get it out,” Nick said. “I hear sounds constantly in my head, but when I try to get them out they sound like completely different sounds.” Another challenge the whole band faces is the hard work of recording in a studio. Wanting to get as much done as possible while there, they often f ace ver y long days of repetition. “It’s easier for me to play a live show,” Nick remarked. “A studio is hard work, and it has to be perfect.” Besides, although he loves the personal enjoyment from playing, Nick hasn’t yet decided if that is his favorite part of playing music. He also really likes the crowds’ reactions. “One thing I want to do before I die is sing before 100,000 people and stop singing and (hold out my microphone) and hear 100,000 people singing my song,” he admitted. And from the way “Seek” talks about music, it sounds like he may get the chance — even if it’s not quite 100,000 people singing back to him. They certainly don’t plan to stop playing any time soon. As Melissa put it, “marriage has its ups and downs, but (playing music togeth-

er) is something we can always have.” They have their joint love of music, and whether it’s genetic or simply taught, their daughter has the same love. Cleverly named Claire Annette is a little more than one year old and already loves music. Even when Melissa was pregnant, she said Claire used to move around when music played. “She finds music in everything,” Melissa laughed. Even the washing machine gets little Claire’s feet bouncing. Melissa didn’t play music r ight out of school, but with two musician parents Claire probably will. Although “Seek” currently lives on strawberry cheese Danishes and chocolate cookies for a breakfast in the studio, they are about to start hitting the stage as a four-member band. Opening for “Secret Circus” on Jan. 31 at The Liberty will be their f irst really big opening act. And even when the late nights at the studio and long days of traveling to a new perf ormance are over and done, and when they grow too old to play sports and have retired from their career jobs, the members of “Seek” will still have their music. “Music is the one thing people can’t take away from you,” Melissa said. And it’s very true.

describe la película así: verdaderas emociones son transmitidas en el contexto de una historia ficticia. Norris dijo que hacer la película en 2011 le permite llorar la muerte de su hermano en 2007. "Es solo que parecía mas fácil escribir sobre mi propio dolor, usando la fachada de la pena de otra persona," dijo Norris. El ajuste de la historia es Cuba, ya que su hermano siempre quiso visitar la isla. El diálogo en "Azul" es en español, con ecepción de algunas escenas en inglés. Norris escribió el guión en inglés y otra persona lo tradujo más tarde. Aunque la mamá de Norris inmigro a los EE.UU. de México, Norris no hablaba español con fluidez en casa, durante su infancia. Lo que sabe del idioma, es por clases en la escuela. La serie en febrero también incluye las películas "No" (2012), "El Espinazo del Diablo" (1993) y "El Ángel Exterminador" (1962). Vollmer dijo que está patricularmente emocionado por "Ángel," dirigida por Luís Buñuel. "Siempre hay mucha comedia o ironía, pero a menudo [hay] una gran cantidad de cosas por considerar y estudiar al salir de una de sus películas," dijo Vollmer. "Diablo" está ambientada en La Guerra Civil de España y dirigida por Guillermo del Toro, quién es famoso por dirigir "El Laberinto del Fauno" ("Pan's Labyrinth"). Bennett dijo que la colección de películas ofrece una variedad para satisfacer a todo el público. "Todas son películas dramáticas y todas han ganado premios, pero yo quiero estar segura que hay algo para cada persona," dijo. La serie está patrocinada por la Fundación del RMAC.

decide on a theme for the art. Past themes include video games, winter and bow ties. "I try to, like, make things that sort of stand out, that people will want to pick up," said Huckabee. Last week's theme was hope for the victims of the Berrendo shooting. Parham put out a call on Facebook seeking artists throughout the community. Students who are not members of FAF also took part. Participants ultimately created roughly 200 pieces that were attached to the chain link fences running along the school's bus lane. "Stay strong," one poster spelled out in glitter. The pieces were placed Jan. 17, three days after the tragic incident. Artists hoped that Berrendo students, staff and f amilies would remove the works from the fence to take home as reminders to stay hopeful and to heal. Disappearance of the art after removal by the public is part of the mystique of FAF, according to Parham. She says FAF does not aim to permanently alter public spaces in any way. Former Roswell-Artist-inResidence Fellow, sculptor Miranda Howe said making art for Berrendo was her first time participating in FAF. She heard about the free art trend from friend Parham. She said she had only ever been a recipient of the art, which Roswell FAF members have placed in locations including Tinnie's Mercantile and the Roswell Museum and Art Center. "I think it's fantastic. As much art as you can bring into the community, the better," she said.


HISTORY

Going streaking!

By Stu Pritchard Roswell Historian ou probably think "streaking," that silly practice of dashing across a given area nude, is a modern phenomenon started by students, mostly male, who through boredom or bravado disrobe and traverse a short distance in the buff. Well, Roswell had a streaker of some note back in the early 30s and the folks downtown were just as titillated then as now. It was a lovely day and merchants on Main Street were rolling down the window awnings in protection against the mor ning sun when our hero, whose name I shan't

Downtown Roswell has always been a fun place to take a stroll mention, partially shook the cobwebs out of his head, attempted to rinse the taste of considerable last evening spirits out of his mouth and began to face the prospects of the dawning day. Carefully, he donned his shoes and socks, placed his gentlemen's stetson squarely on his throbbing head and firmly grasped his cane. His departure from the old Hotel Nickson was not really noticed at first; however, his lack of attire would not go unnoticed for long. At first passersby were merely shocked as our hero calmly struck out with a brisk, if

slightly wobbly pace, intent on his desire to reach the Old Mission Barber Shop, some three blocks away, for his morning shave. Nonchalantly, he strolled, tipping his hat to the ladies and making rude gestures to male passersby until friends interrupted his stroll and hustled him off to cover and clothing. The streaking incident is indeed true. Artist Peter Hurd is the gentleman who related the incident to me, and he is one of the only ones that knew the gentleman's name.

UFOLOGY

Will 2014 be the year of UFO disclosure?

Looking Up

A

By Donald Burleson slightly belated Happy New Year! With the advent of every January 1st, we in the community of UFO studies, accustomed by now to decades of gover nment secrecy, find ourselves wondering whether the new year will see federal and military

officials openly admit that some UFOs are real and are not explainable in mundane terms. Fat chance, right? Don’t get me wrong, there assuredly are disclosure optimists in this field. They have their reasons for believing human and social dynamics are such that full disclosure is just around the cor ner. Alas, though, I must confess that I’m a disclosure pessimist. I would love to be proven wrong about that, but I’m not holding my breath. I doubt that gover nment will ever come clean about all this. It’s too late f or “clean.” There’s nothing clean about this business, when UFO witnesses have been harassed, threatened, and worse.

There was a time, a window of opportunity early on, when it wasn’t too late for government to tell the truth. I find it hard to believe that Harry Truman (whom I remember vividly) would have favored the practice of keeping everything permanently secret. At first, secrecy was admittedly necessary, because when Truman got that bizarre phone call from the Southwest in the middle of the night in early July 1947, he was f aced with the unknown, and he had only minutes to decide what to do. The retr ieved mater ials would have to be studied by experts. That process being at least begun, I think Truman would scarcely have objected to releasing some information

in time. But he lost his bid for re-election in 1952, and Dwight Eisenhower took office. He was a distinguished military man who no doubt owed favors to other such officials, and he could readily have been persuaded that maintaining all that secrecy was desirable. A deeply entrenched culture of cover-ups was born, and it persists to this day, regardless of who is in the White House. One might save the government’s face by blaming the whole thing on those people running the show sixty years ago, Eisenhower and associates. But if other people, shadowy figures now living, didn’t still want all the information withheld from the public, there could have

been at least partial disclosure by now. Yet there hasn’t been. Remember when we were promised that our current government was going to be more open than ever before? There isn’t any evidence that this has been the case. Let’s face it, full disclosure at this point would be a very weighty bill to pay. Imagine: “We’ve been lying to you about everything important for two-thirds of a century, but we still want you to trust us.” One can understand their not wanting to say that. Not that it matters, in some respects. Pr ivate UFO researchers have made notable strides establishing that some airborne objects observed in our skies are anomalous. Official disclosure in 2014? Probably not, but let’s make this another productive year of finding out for ourselves!
