Super stoked for the fall to finally be here. It has been a crazy busy summer and have not stood still long enough to settle into the new apartment I moved in July. I got a bar and book shelf to build and this will clear up my floor space to get my music and video gear in order to create, create create.
Just closed out the summer with the 10th annual Decibel Festival. There were some good times and some crazy times. In the end all seems to have worked out for the best and I can not wait for next years festivities. Feeling real good about the Visuals I did Thursday night for Neon Indian. The feedback was great and appears to be leading to more performances. The highlight of the festival was the visuals by Scott Pagano to the tunes of Speedy J. They joined Max Cooper for an amazing after hours line up at Q. From the conference to the Optical showcases to all of the amazing line ups after hours and boat parties Decibel offers the most unique festival experience you could ask for.
This Friday the October 4th I’ll be performing visuals at Refuge for the Tim Green show with Art of Hot, A Perfect Cyn and Anna Langley. Will see what goes down, hear there are an unlimited amount of projectors to accompany the performance. Come check it out!
I’m super excited to be going up to Seattle the end of this month to VJ at Decibel Festival 10. Last year was amazing and I can’t wait to do it again. Hope to see you in Seattle http://dbfestival.com/dbx/artist/jessey-zepeda. For the missing Video link check out https://vimeo.com/3011575. Also going to do some Guerrilla VJ Sets this weekend at boomboxindaboondox.
Working on some other out of town large scale private events in November being designed inside a new custom 120 foot geodesic dome. Also thinking big on the incorporation of new material science breakthroughs in live events and visual performance. Can’t wait till I can share with you all!!!!!

Still ecstatic over the invite to participate in the 2012 Decibel Festival for three different showcases. This footage captured during the set of FaltyDL @ Re-Bar 9-26-2012. It was a great turnout for a Wednesday night show, Seattle I’m Impressed! Could not wait for the 2 shows on Saturday 9-29-2012. Manik and Axel Boman brought amazing sets to the Re-Bar. In conversation with Axel Boman that night he had this to say about the visuals “That was original, artistic…not the type of stuff you see most of the time.” Here is a list of all of the Musical acts from all three shows and my personal favs on the music.
Global Selektors 1
Slow Hands———————-> a must hear great summertime chill dance music
Appleblim———————–> Great Sound design
FaltyDL————————-> Original Great Grasp of Rhythm and Melody
Global Selektors 3 Alga Rhythm presents
APOLINARIO ANCHETA————-> Deep, Deep, Deep

Resident Advisor After Hours
The summer has been great. There has been much travel and adventure Florida/The Bahamas, What The Festival and a Trip to London and then Berlin to scout locations for a lighting and video installation scheduled for October 2013. While in Berlin I managed to get a VJ gig in at Nhow Berlin. It really was the summer that kept on giving next up to close it off Decibel Festival 2012.
