Another mm-cc post. mm-cc stands for Morning Music + Coffee Consumption. More info can be had here: mm-cc.org/
Basically, you invite your friends over in the morning to record some music and ultimately make something out of it.
The players are:
Jeff Numainville - Microkorg
Michael Goggin - Guitar
Charlie Visnic - Bass, Modular Synth
Dantes Rosete - Music Box
Inthia Seabrooks - Music Box
Rene Cardona - Percussion, Harmonica & Monome
The visuals are macro shots of iron filings. The first shoot I just placed them on a small mirror and made them move around by waving a magnet around below the mirror.
The second day I decided to try out something new. I created an electro-magnet out of a 6-inch iron nail and a copper coil. Then I taped the electro-magnet underneath the mirror and hooked it up to my modular synth. It was pretty cool to be controlling the rhythm of the iron filings with LFO's and envelope generators.

I hope you enjoy the song and the video!
