"Factory Demo"

"Factory Demo" [4.2 MB .mp3]

The (very) analog Vermona Perfourmer synth, playing a midi test pattern that comes loaded in the machine.
The Perfourmer is four monosynths that can be patched together various ways, modular fashion. I finally figured out how to plug the VCO output of one synth into the filter of another, allowing both synths to play the same oscillator output simultaneously with two different filter settings (this isn't in the manual, and involves pushing the jack only halfway into the VCO out port--this must be a mistake). The piece consists of four rhythm instruments (tweaked-out white noise as described above) multitracked with four melodic instruments (using FM modulation that works the way it says in the manual). Each synth is kind of doing its thing but everything stays mostly in sync.

Update: Revised and reposted. The melodic part was too loud so I made it quieter, and added software drums and synth at the end for a climax.

mix or motion?

"The relationships between the images (and how those relationships evolve) is usually more interesting than any of the individual images"

Art is remixed because, at least initially, to the remixer, it is "interesting." Maybe the remix is interesting (or better!) and maybe the process is interesting but those are always secondary attributes. Our problem isn't a dearth of interesting images on the web, it's too many of them.
