Videos Yo.

Here’s an installation I did with some friends last spring titled “who could stay mad at a unicorn?” it involved large pads that would trigger samples and lights when stepped on, a short story, and a video.  You can watch a version of the video here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

David housed the lights in these tripod-alien looking structures, as well as the speakers for each individual sample.

 

 

 

Here are two of the sample pads and part of the “trail of the unicorn.”  This installation was in the reflections gallery and saw a lot of foot traffic.  Apparently the janitors were complaining about glitter and foam stickers all over campus.

Here are some photags of the set for a new short film I’m making.  The general Idea is the creation of dreams.  I’ll upload some test shots and better photos as the project progresseshope you enjoy. Read More »

Here’s a video from the first show Ian and I played as Rhythmmemory … enjoy.

So as the semester wound down and Mike and I finished up our respective projects, me working with my midi software and Mike exploring the possibilities of DIY self made electronics, we’re finally started moving forward with jamming and recording some new sounds. The next month will prove a challenge for us as we finish up booking a short tour on the west coast and we work separately on new material as Mike and his lovely wife Laura embark on a month long road trip. But as always moving forward meant dipping into the past a little. Definitely some noise artists that have heavily influenced Mike and I have been artists like Pixelform and Die Schrauber. But I wanted to share with you guys some artists that exposed me to noise in Singapore.

The first one would be my friend Shaun and Wei Nan, also known as MindFuckingBoy and engineering beautiful blood, Shaun and Wei use prerecorded noise, the human voice manipulated by different levels of effects while interweving them with dischordant and distorted guitar and bass lines to create an dazzling and terrifying soundscape.

Here is a video of him and Wei Nan playing at Gas Haus in Singapore.

Tomorrow Zai Kunig…

Literally… clips from practice on Saturday… no joke

Ian finished this a while ago and it sounds pretty radical… check it

so… after tinkering around with the 555 timer a bunch over the last few days, I’ve found a cool configuration… although this test circuit is missing a few pieces (a few 500k pots, some rotary switches and a couple of spdt toggles) it’s going to pretty much sound like this

So the final product will be this tone generator with a low pass filter that I am working the kinks out of right now, a baby ten style step sequencer and a small 12 key keyboard… I have all the pots for the sequencer coming in the mail and I’m still looking for an affordable and playable way of banging out the keys… it should be nice.  I’m going to use two rotary switches (or more) on the tone generator to allow easy access to different capacitor configurations… In the video I switch between 4 or 5 different configurations and they all sound good to me, so I want to make that a feature… I’ll try to post a schematic soon, if anyone knows of a good place to find free schematic writing software I would love to hear about it, at the moment I will probably just draw it on a piece of paper and take a photo of it…


Here’s a short Vid of a project I’ve been working on… more info to come so stay tuned
