South Pasadena resident Terry Bailey is a Pioneering New Media Designer-Performer-Artist-Musician-Producer-Creative Director-Studio Manager-Coder-Journalist-Technologist & Interactive Multimedia Author.
Terry views herself as a hybrid Luddite and technophile, with an artistic sensibility and passion for Arts and Music.
Terry has a long history of musical performance – a songwriter, singer and guitarist – starting at the Attic of famed San Francisco nightclub The Purple Onion at the age of sixteen (where the owner had to hand her a few dollars and tell her to go sit at the hamburger place across the street, Zim’s, whenever the age-checking Feds showed up). For years Terry played solo and with other noted fingerstyle guitarists like Bob Saxton, Jeff Linsky, and Ric Ickard – in-between college treks, building an Academy Award winning sound studio and launching the first interactive multimedia department in a corporate law firm.
Today she is focused on performing New Media Story Salons – her own original stories and poetry with accompanying guitar music, and sometimes, art. One set is “Sunday At Buster’s Reading Baldwin,” and another is a Celtic leaning assemblage, “My Irish Routes.”
Currently Bailey is preparing to publish a multimedia iBook series, Light 2.0, based on her hit podcast novel, Light 1.0 – Website: www.mediabench.com Light 2.0 is a multimedia book series replete with text story, interactive elements, animations and original music and art.
and she is researching and authoring a book about women and technology.
Bailey also consults on a variety of technology subjects, including Digital Media, Cybersecurity, Automation and The Internet of Things, to the Cities of Glendale and Burbank, and to local school districts. And she teaches at Glendale Community College and privately to various people and companies.
Riffing on Books is Bailey’s new media blog devoted to Arts and Science-Technology aesthetics, history, policy and philosophy.
