harazard de uno - abre ojos

Post by spbaker » Tue Jul 29, 2008 6:50 am

hi muff-clan
here's a new track/video that i recorded on sat nite, its all improv- both video & sound, there are a couple of glitches due to the mic overloading but just pretend they are part of it...
this series of tracks i'm doing are based around using the breath as a timing tool and are designed as a meditation, so if the visuals don't change for a bit be patient, let it get you into the (dr)zone, its 18 mins so substitute your current fav reality or sitcom tv show and give yr brain a rest :grin:

here's the vimeo link http://vimeo.com/1425786 or you can access the video and an mp3 version from the site http://abreojos.net

if you have the bandwidth and are a vimeo user when you log in you can download the original video file from the bottom of the page for a better qual vid.

this is the pic of the set up for this track, i'm working out my live set up (its cherry will be popped tomoz nite, wish me luck..) which goes like this - modular & mic into xstation- xstation via usb into Ableton- some effects on them plus absynth out via xstation into amp/pa/mixer then visuals are evolution xsession (wots with all the x's?) controlling quartz composer.

edit: i forgot to add if you're still reading this you might wanna know that i have just finished a dvd compiling the first four abre ojos a/v tracks, if you want a copy i'm happy to trade you for your music CD/DVD or $15USD posted anywhere. it also includes the tracks as mp3's for transfer to your non video device... pm me if yr interested.

thanks everyone for your kind comments, they really do mean a lot!
sandyb your DVD is on its way!

i did a live set with the gear above last night and it went off without a hitch, the MBP is my works and compared to my old G4 powerbook the processing power is phenomenal with absynth/ableton/efx AND quartz composer running up to 4 or 5 channels of time warped video reacting to sound and not a glitch, the processor barely even noticed!

i know there are purists out there and using absynth with a modular is blasphemy in some circles but they really complimented each other superbly and didn't mix into each others acoustic space much in the live environment. i still love the evolver as the modulars pitched pair but setting it up live takes a heap longer because i just can't stop there i need that pedal and that efx box, oh and i must take that one too, and that one until it takes me an hour to set up :eek:

sorry i'm rambling now - thanks again everyone!

Nice tracks!
I love the palindromatic effects in some of the videos; very hypnotic.
Very cool how the speed od video playback corresponds to the music.
Are there other aspects of the video that are also being effected?
I got that impression, but wasn't quite sure.

If combining different media (analog & digital synths) is a sin then bring on the blasphemy! 'break on through to the other side' :twisted:

You should check out K.Rob. He does visual noise in San Francisco.
I think he may have a DVD coming out too if not all ready.

Keep up the good work.

thanks Cat-A-Tonic! 8)
its only the time that is being effected but i can change the range that the audio effects it with the midi controller, from no effect to stupidly fast- the video time goes both ways so as it starves from audio levels it starts to run backwards, then i can also control the opacity to mix the footage together.

i'll hunt him down for sure, but i don't think you mean this K-Rob http://www.k-rob.us/ :hihi:

Awesome! Somehow I missed this thread and ended up seeing the posting on Matrixsynth.

Very cool visuals and sounds, definitely inspiring! Can't wait to see more.
