"Winged Man" (video)

"Winged Man" [Vimeo] [Embedded Version]

I recycled the pixel field GIF from "Gridhopper" for this somewhat less multimedia-y video.
Am interested in combining lo-fi computer graphics with "simple waveforms" analog sounds -- it seems right even if there's no theory for it.
The soundtrack is below:

The Chambers Pavilion

I have some work in the Digital Art Biennale, titled "The Wrong" (front page / explanation), based in Sao Paolo, which opens today. Invited curators created online pavilions for artists' works. Mine is in a Sara Ludy-organized site called The Chambers Pavilion (site / jump page). Below is her flyer and announcement for the show.

The Chambers Pavilion exhibits 11 new works from artists who were invited to create sound rooms accessible online. The Chambers Pavilion is an online pavilion created for the Digital Art Biennale The Wrong. Chambers opens on 11/1/13

Was trying to think of when you might want to watch a cursor moving through a sound file.
For any reason besides "we at Soundcloud needed a gimmick to keep your attention while you listen to music here."
Perhaps if the wave had an interesting shape and the sound was somewhat intriguing and there was some obvious, necessary correlation between the two.
So I made this [Vimeo] as an experiment. [Embedded version]
Had been wanting to post that bit of electronic music but it needed something more. This might be it.

Modular Conveniences 2 (Video)

Another multimedia journey (joke):

Vimeo / Embedded Version (1280 x 720)

Artistic "problems" continue to be "worked through" on Vimeo (a more self-deprecating blogger might add, without the pesky inconvenience of an "audience").
In this case, the problems of how modular synth "monads" interact with found and manipulated video "entelechies."
Remove scare quotes for approximate meaning.

Gridhopper (Video)


Posted on Vimeo [since removed].

The music is a shortened version of a "Music for Sidstation and Analog Drum Machine" piece from long ago.
The grids are based on a video installation "LED GIF Grid CRT."

"Grid Trance," "Idyllic Bike Ride"


Some links to new-ish videos:

"Grid Trance" [embedded 1280 x 720 version] [960 x 540 Vimeo version].

"Idyllic Bike Ride" [Vimeo] [Embedded Version] (same size, different backgrounds)
I already linked to this but have gotten some nice feedback so here it is again.

the Dogma of silence

Have been working on projects that aren't particularly bloggable -- video, archiving/remaking DVDs, fooling around with a new computer with more video capability.
It's kind of stupid to keep posting links to Vimeos just for the sake of being a prolific blogger.
And goddam it I will not junk up 12 years of pristine text and pic bloggin' with a bunch of embed code stra-a-a-ining to pull up offsite Flash content like every other stinkin' website.
Am having some Dogma-like insights about video shooting, scoring, and editing that I'll want to talk about eventually.
In the meantime check out my bike ride on Vimeo.
Also, am posting "SD" (720 x 480) videos to my Screencast page -- it's paid hosting which doesn't do any transcoding where I can create embeds for my barely-viewed "wider" blog.

"Knife Missile's Return" (Music Video)


Posted on Vimeo.
An embedded version is here.
"HD" or hi def should be on by default (see button on right side of controller).

Thanks again to Duncan Alexander for Rotor 34 (captured and used in the vimeo).
"Knife Missile's Return," the song, was posted previously. Notes on the production.

"Thx for the Add (Subtraction Mix)" (Music Video)


Posted on Vimeo.
An embedded version is here.
"HD" or hi def should be on by default (see button on right side of controller).

Previously posted the song (riffs I wrote in Reaktor and organized in Cubase) but in this video series am playing with how visual fillips add another layer. Without necessarily adding meaning -- the inspiration comes from the many YouTubes with random visuals where the uploader's main intent is for you to listen to a song.
Random visuals-wise, hat tips to various dumpers too numerous or anonymous to list but in particular Ryder Ripps (for IDGI Guy and dump), stage, 82times, Sergei Eisenstein, and whomever else wants a credit (pls email).

"Limelite Tab One Remix" (Music Video)


Posted on Vimeo.
An embedded version is here.
"HD" or hi def should be on by default (see button on right side of controller).

The song, based on Reaktor patch, was previously posted. Video-wise, some more and GIF captures, and the "squirrel ensemble" presented without wrapping (as in no line break).
