My friend, John Kilgore, Berks County, PA guitarist of high talent and great renown, made this wonderful photomontage video, accompanied by his original soundtrack, and posted it for the Public on FB today. We've agreed it has a very sci-fi, superhero feel to it. Watch, Listen, and Enjoy.



John wrote when he shared this on FB after collecting our photos in his request thread:

Alrighty then...
The link to Everyone In Masks is below.
Thank you so much for everyone that contributed their Facebook selfie’s to this strange project, it came out much differently than I had anticipated. I’m sorry that there were a few pictures in that previous selfie-request-thread that I couldn’t use for one reason or another. My apologies. 

After putting it all together into the video, I thought it would be more of a feeling of loneliness or slight sadness (maybe that everyone has a mask). Instead it almost seems like science fiction, very strange and surreal and weird but it has a stark realism to it all. Most of the shots are just everyone in their daily routine, they’re not playing make up, they’re not just playing some kind of Facebook game. 
The fact that I know most of these people makes it even more interesting to me because some look so foreign to me, I barely recognize them.

The song is like the masked people, it’s very foreign to me and I don’t know what to make of it, I’m not even sure if I like it that much, especially after hearing it 50 times while editing this.
But it drives the photo stream along which is the point.

So enjoy these four minutes of strange images, and hopefully we can get back to seeing each other up close without masks on our faces. 
I would like to set up a relief fund for my real (not just Facebook) musician friends out of work due to quarantine. Please see the video description for paypal link.

Oh, and happy mothers day to all masked moms out there. 😘

Kudos to you and John Kilgore for putting this together... nice guitar work and composition and of course highly relevant.

To me the sci-fi edge is very slight. It’s more like Realty TV Meets Stranger Things. Eerie but matter of fact... disorienting but not without hope.

Thank you for sharing Acoustic Interloper.
