To feature the release of Misdemeanors, Minor Vices performed at Sugar Maple, one of Milwaukee’s most supportive venues for new music. At the conclusion of Chris Burns’ welcome/introduction to the show, he tapped a “Publish” button on his phone, making Misdemeanors live to the general public. Along with the featured studio release, Minor Vices performed Motion Blur, a structured improvisation from the mind of Chris Burns.
While the entire performance was not released on video, preserving the new audio release of Misdemeanors, Motion Blur is available on YouTube.
I’ve uploaded a video collaboration I worked on with a friend of mine to my Vimeo page. It’s an abstract piece that uses water as a theme, and a focal point for source material. All sounds were created from water-based field recordings, and the video images are all derived from the same theme as well. Many of the water-based recordings were utilized in Absynth (Native Instruments), in the interest of turning them into instruments; making them performance ready. Other sounds were processed using Cubase’s built-in DSP options. Enjoy!
