I started this work while in residence at Yaddo in Saratoga Springs, NY March and April.
Sonny was a maintenance and grounds keeper at Yaddo for years and when he left he left behind this car. In the passenger seat among other things was a box of porcelain and corelle plates and cups.
This work is very much in process and I anticipate completing it by Winter 2012/13. That said I wanted to share a few of the directions I have been exploring lately. I hope you enjoy.
How it's made:
Video was recorded on a Red One at 2K resolution.
Audio was captured using two microphones in stereo configuration- 1 Shure SM7B and 1 Cad Trion large diaphragm tube mic - these were passed through a tube pre amp and into an H4N. Everything was powered using a car battery and inverter.
Every sound you hear was captured during the event- there are no added instruments and no layering of sounds. The only manipulation is through speed, it is unmastered and unmixed.
