Adam Jones in Toronto?

Sianspheric sent me an email today telling me that a friend of his noticed the following in a press release regarding the Canadian Music Week festival on Toronto in March:

  • Adam Jones (Tool) / Saturday March 12 / Trinity St Paul’s / 7:00pm (A World premiere multimedia presentation) – Tickets on sale Friday, January 14 at 10am.

Your guess is as good as mine as to what it’s about.  Maybe a new side project, or the unveiling of a much speculated one?  Perhaps something to do with the Y Incision project, which coincidentally nxrm pointed out has had an update, including this vague statement:

Lastly, we are hoping to soon announce a music component to these packages that I am very excited about, but we have a few details to work out first. Trust me when I say, it’s huge and cool as fucking hell.

Maybe itll be the premier of The Pot!

I’m confused. It sounds interesting, but I’d have my reservations about it being something as auspicious as a video for The Pot. Seems unlikely to me. But we shall see.

That sounds the most plausible.

The whole nano-guitar thing sounds ridiculous.

“The guitar has six strings, each string about 50 nanometers wide, the width of about 100 atoms. If plucked — by an atomic force microscope, for example — the strings would resonate, but at inaudible frequencies. The entire structure is about 10 micrometers long, about the size of a single cell.”

You can hear a nano-guitar being played on this page:

Hopefully AJ does a better job of it than these guys

Well if it’s a new multimedia presentation related to TOOL I don’t care what it is it’s been so long since anything new

A World premiere multimedia presentation

He might be there but it doesn’t sound like a musical gig. Maybe he’s selling his art or something….it’s more than one source of media so one must take that into consideration. ish.

Not to get anyone’s hopes up too high, but The Pot video is quite likely as I remember him saying before that it would be in 3D and he’d want to premiere it i.e. a film. It being ‘multimedia’ media and all, it’s very likely.  If it was Y incision I think they’d put more emphasis on the comic artists and have Adam Jones surprise everybody, unless they’re trying to rake in the publicity.  But hey, what the fuck do I know 😛

Yes, this scenario sounds very reasonable.

Hey guys, Yeah a friend who works in the music press here in Toronto forwarded me the CMW Press Release email, it looks pretty legic.  CMW and NXNE (Toronto’s answer to SXSW) often have guest speakers, keynote addresses, media presentations, multimedia things so this isn’t really uncommon. Still haven’t seen anything on ticketmaster.ca yet.  I called the CMW media rep and she suggested that a few of the local record shops who sell tickets for many of the CMW events should be selling tickets.  If you are in Toronto, that was Soundscapes on College Street and Rotate This on Queen… Read more »

I live about an hours away from T.O. so I’ll probably be popping in on this. Also, is it just me or does this sound like a fitting venue that would be apt to presenting some kind of work(s) associated with Alex Grey? “We are a vibrant busy congregation of the United Church of Canada.

Blair is bound to mention it sooner or later, but yeah… whether he sheds more light on what the event actually IS… who knows.

It will probably be some obscure hint, veiled in a foggy suggestion that requires some convoluted cipher to reveal something we already knew as per usual. lol

Could this be that project involving Matthew Santoro?  Matthew Santoro is a director, that Blair mentioned well over a year ago. 

“Look for more of Matt’s stunning art in a future Tool project (i.e. “the big thing”)” – BMB

As a refresher for log time followers, here is the link for his movie trailer (for obviously an unrelated project) – http://vimeo.com/4803532 .  Maybe Tool will be handling the score for this movie…?  Is it that big of a stretch?

…As mentioned before, all we are doing is speculating at this point.

Rumor has it that the album is done but is waiting on artwork and marketing plans. I just wonder if it’ll be released before or after the grape harvest. Either way, fuck yeah!
