New video posted on Vimeo

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!

MiLO at Sugar Maple: Samples

So once again, I’ve gone a couple months without a post.  Summer has a tendency to be full of so many going-ons that this site takes a back seat.  Oh well…

The performance at Sugar Maple was a great success and a good time was had by all.  Something a little newer for the group was to break up all the performers into a variety of trio subsets.  This is an evolution of some exercises we would play during rehearsals, where the entrance of a individual’s sound had to be accompanied by at least one other player, as he/she introduced something new to the overall sound.  Sometimes this would occur during the same subset’s exit from the group sound.  It became a way of organizing spontaneous coordination and adding a level of control to the overall density of our performances.  As everyone really enjoyed how it was influencing our rehearsals, we thought we’d take it a step further for the Sugar Maple performance.

Below is a video I captured before my iPhone ran out of storage space, and the remaining trios that we got audio for.  Unfortunately, we were unable to get anything else in it’s entirety.

Last item of note for that night, is a series of photographs taken by Paul M. Mitchell.  The photos can be seen here.

Posted 3 videos on new Vimeo page

As various projects and collaborations come to a close, I often try to get some kind of video documentation.  I had some of them posted to my previous, traditionally styled website, but  that website is now dead/abandoned and Vimeo provides an excellent place for creative people to share their videos.  I posted three videos right away and added a few friends in my Contacts list.  Check them all out and leave a comment if you’d like.
