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.

...from Ryz. Ouch.
"Gridhopper" was supposed to be a parody of multimedia journeys, guess I need to work on being even MORE desultory.

High fives to these glitch artists rattling the bars of our social media cages (have said that before).

"glitchr" showed up in my twitter timeline today, smearing a slug-trail of typography into other people's posts as I scrolled (commencing from a small puddle). Funny -- thanks, Petra, for RT-ing.

(The balance of Jon Williams' tweet says "really proud of my dad for bucking the youtube real name bullshit")

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."

"Retro Synth Fantasy"

"Retro Synth Fantasy" [4 MB .mp3]

Was testing out a new sound card and wanted to strain the connection, so this tune has fast parts, MIDI echo, and gratuitous high powered flanging. (The card passed.)
Also, this is done in 3/4 with slightly uneven measures.
The synth is Retrologue, a softsynth that ships with Cubase. Basically I like anything with chords.

Update: minor tweak near the end; reuploaded.
