[The following description of this madcap event was penned by Tim Shields, part of a larger piece he's working on that chronicles the rise of Seattle's "creative class."]
The event was BakeFeast 3D, the third such gathering created and hosted by Karass Creative, a creative agency that helps brands, arts organizations, and nonprofits tell better stories. When the [house] band Haute f’Aurts took stage, “Bob” stepped behind an L-shaped stack of organs and keyboards, nodded at his rhythmic coconspirator “Jeff” on percussion, and spread his fingers across the Hammond B3. Like a puppet master he guided the peaking crowd on a roller coaster of up, down, and off-beat tempos, holding down the bass with one hand while laying melodies over the top with his other. Light particles spun and ricocheted off a disco ball while syncopated media projected on [Goodwill] art frames displayed real-time images of partygoers taken by a wandering GoPro camera. The crowd rode the wave of jams that ranged from suspended ethereal dazes to dirty, muddy grooves shaped by mind-melting synth.
A wave. An awesome wave.
The confluence of creative energies that happens in underground scenes throughout Seattle such as the one at Karass Creative creates currents and tides that ripple and slosh about the city, casting out molecules of creative ideas that come together to form various compounds in music, film, restaurants, start-ups, and every mode of human expression.
Designed to radically evolve the interaction between artist and audience, KT Niehoff's immersive Collision Theory is unfolding toward denouement at On the Boards. After nine months of intimate performances and hip happenings—including galleries, dinner parties, installations, musical creations, films, and old-school correspondence—this dazzlingly unique artistic journey continues to shatter the wall between performance and observer.
It has been a challenging, evocative journey, collaborating with KT in the creation of a collective culture committed to spawning creativity, connections, and joyous collision.

We're happy to announce we've won our third straight RFP, this one for creating a new web presence for the law firm Schroeter Goldmark & Bender, champions of justice for more than 40 years (they seriously walk the walk). We've already crafted SGB's core story and logo, and now we'll build upon that twin-nucleus to create a website that's as engaging and inspiring as the firm itself.
In other news, change is afoot—we're gearing up to evolve our presence in this marvelous, bewildering media wilderness.
"If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough."
We're back to full strength—Ariel has returned from maternity leave, Bob from New Orleans, and Bear from his winter yurt deep in the Olympics, where he finally mastered the banjo.
(Props to Karassmate Dave Estep for the marvelous portraiture and whimsical comminglings.)
