ArtCrime Samples

Samples of ArtCrime’s music are available for your listening pleasureĀ at
the music tab of this web site. I recommend you choose the “Highlight” versions where available. Let me know what you think…

ArtCrime – New Performance Ensemble

Arising out of the Bergen County Experimental Musician Meetups, there is a new experimental performance ensemble in Northern New Jersey: ArtCrime!

We held our first practice today, which went really well. We probably have the seeds of three pieces from what we worked on today. Members to date include Bob Siebert on kalimba and circuit-bent keyboard, Darren Bergstein on rhythm and effects, Steve Orbach on sopranino sax and rhythm, Frank Joliffe on guitar and myself on keyboard and baritone sax.

New practice is next week and we’re looking forward to see what we can do with this grouping of individuals.

Change Home Tab Name on WordPress Artisteer Templates

The name of the Home tab on WordPress sites is not a page property, it is a template property. If your template has been generated by the Artisteer template generation program, you can change the Home tab name by finding /wp-content/themes/YourThemeName/config.ini. Open this file in a text editor like NotePad. Just below the [menu] section is an entry:

homeCaption = "Home";

Change the text between the quotes to your prefered tab name and save the file. Reload your WordPress page.

If your template has come from another source, the tab name is encoded in your template files, but you will have to do some detective work. I would open NotePad++ and use Search>Find in Files…, set it to Match Case, then look for “Home”.
