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!
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.
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.
There’s also a permanent link on my home page right-side menu bar.
