John Pointer

And thus started John Pointer's presentation at last week's Pecha Kucha Night Vol. 4 in Austin. Some may be intimated at the thought of putting together a presentation for PKN, but John proves that a lo-fi approach can still pack a high-def message. Below, the rest of John's presentation, which covers his use of a patron area on his website. "Individuals can have all of my music for as little as $2/month," explains John. "I'm building a salary to make new music this way, and I don't need to sell my tracks -- they're already paid for collectively -- so the patrons can distribute them freely via file sharing." Here's a bio on John (visit his website for more info): John Pointer graduated from UT with a BA in Cello performance and composition in 1997. He has been a full time performer since then, starred in multiple commercials as a human beatbox, won 9 Austin Music Awards, played Judas in Zach Scott Theater's production of Jesus Christ Superstar, is in the Cirque du Soleil talent pool, and is a compulsive problem solver.

Our second presentation highlight for the day comes to us courtesy of John Manoochehri, as he explains in 20 images just how to "Unmake Me Whole" -- it was first presented as part of the "Global PechaKucha Night for Haiti." We make too much stuff, and that stuff uses too many of our precious resources. How do we unmake the world around us? Another amazingly powerful presentation.
