    • What Need Angel

      What Need Angel is a synesthetic transcription of the brainwave response of a five year old boy while listening to music. The project aims to develop a systematic methodology that allows for primal biological experiences to be visualised to facilitate the understanding of the emotional responses to stimuli. The computational video uses dynamic particle animation segments that are woven together to form a seamless, though at times jarring, reflection of the music listening experience. Particle behaviours such as size, speed, colour and direction of movement are all determined by the user’s passive brainwave responses to music stimuli. The project was accomplished using a commercially available electroencephalograph headset that measures qualitative and quantitative changes in neural activity when a stimulus is experienced. The first session involved the recording of EEG responses to music in a darkened room. In a second session entirely devoid of music, the boy was exposed to a continuous array of visual stimuli such as solid colours, gradient colours and variably animated geometric shapes. The neural responses to the visual arrays that matched the EEG audio responses were used to devise an architecture for the visual transcription of the music experience. The key to the piece was devising a visual system who’s form and compositional dynamics matched the response to music. Music by Burial : Loner, Kindred, Hiders and Come Down To Us.

        Dreamdoktor to release its avante-garde sounds with Sunset Jazz! There’s some serious method to the madness of this new record from Dreamdoktor, now being released with the Sunset Jazz record label. The prolific electronic artist has spent years constructing musical compositions, which evokes a soothing and ambient sound that is very much avante-garde showing off elements that are flowing, tonal, intense and magical in all of its songs. Dreamdoktor has applied the same approach it has done anytime they produce spontaneous and overly compelling musical works. Conceptually, none of this is new for Dreamdoktor. The overall sound expands on its avante-garde feel that draw on influences from the likes of John Zorn, John Cage and Brian Eno. Dreamdoktor itself is made up with visual expressionists by Romania artist Cristina Handrabur and the Romanian composer Dan Handrabur making up what is Dreamdoktor. Don Lichterman, the label head at Sunset (Sunset Jazz Recordings) states that “taking these avante-garde sound recordings and colorful musical concepts and working it to the clubs, dance formats along with electronic and DJ genres along with working them to the pop listener, is somewhat unorthodox and not normal in this part of the music industry. “The particular songs on this record are especially being worked to my licensing partners for projects across the board.” Dreamdoktor says on the band’s website that it “had composed many unique pieces music that is accompanied by artwork. Of those songs, (Don) Lichterman says that they “we chose 14 tracks that could best be worked this way and that was a battle in itself (we could have used dozens of songs).” Even with Dreamdoktor’s pretty flexible concepts that are colorful, it's ability to reach the majority of listeners and viewers of avante-garde music and art, is a great approach that adds value to both the music and that artwork. The full length album is filled with an abundance of opaquely uniformed colorfully-drenched electronic sounds that has very accessible melodies, great structures and great sounds that flow nicely from song to song. Normal approaches to musical works like verses and choruses do not come into play here and, with the exception of the consistent rhythms in every song, the shunning of that norm bring the avid listener of this style of music an array of flowing paradox of colors throughout each track. In reality, the greatest part of these sound recordings are the colorful feel to them. The sound with artwork works amazing as Dreamdoktor rev's up the avante-garde aspect of its energies towards more nuanced format and style of music. Moreover, the colorful, tintinnabulation and discord of songs like “Cervantes” has an incredible atmospheric piece and the sounds belong on film scores and anything drive by drama. “Telephatik Blackmarketers” and “Seven Billion Years To Go” both return to a magical, yet lighter-colored feel especially great film scores and for licensing in any way. Dreamdoktor and the full length release entitled 'Seven Billion Years To Go' is a great balance for that avante-garde intellectual that is also an avid fan of colorful impressionism artwork. This new interactive concept of combing art and music is a brilliant one. More music artists will most likely follow suit in combing the two arts and the album is filled with the following named songs set to hit stores this month: 1 Seven Billion Years To Go 2 Cervantes 3 Telephatik Blackmarketers 4 Sore Kortex 5 Psy Lo 6 Fallen Flag 7 Breathe Shadows 8 Unthink 9 In Satya 10 Dust To Life 11 Klepsidra 12 Sinner G 13 Oh Lordy 14 I Mad Sunset Jazz Recordings / Sunset Classics & Jazz (SC&J) A world renowned jazz record label with old school styled and modern day smooth jazz artists signed to the label and with DJ's, Electronica, House, TripHop Music artists on its roster.

The boss label Kode 9, alongside Scratcha DVA, Ikonika and Hyperdub's latest partners Teklife's DJ Spinn, DJ Taso and DJ Earl showcased one of the most impressive bass music events that Mexico City has lived. The audioreactive piece "Hex" designed and programmed by Telekinetic Media Lab, worked as a synaesthetic stage, delivering unseen visuals to a yet amazing sound experience.

                A visual exploring the idea of lucid dreaming by considering the minds ability to allow its conscious to exist within its unconscious. The film presents the idea of a fine line between being awake in a dream like state and dead. I don't have copyright over the score, full credit goes to Burial and Hyperdub records.

                  Made as a tribute to The spaceape and as part of the 'Structure' project. I have no rights over the audio but check out more of The spaceape and Kode9's separate work and collaborations at http://www.hyperdub.net. The inspiration for this Film is the contrast in structures that make up the thames path, it was filmed over the space of 1 day in the city and aims to visually represent the tone of the spaceapes harrowing vocal style.

                      I was on the Red Giant video page, and decided to try out a technique posted by Aharon Rabinowitz, here: https://vimeo.com/27264406 Adding to it another technique from a video done by Harry Frank, here: https://vimeo.com/34623851 All done with Trapcode Form and Adobe After Effects. If you're interested in Form, go check out Peder Norrby's vimeo page: https://vimeo.com/pedernorrby Or, go over to www.redgiant.com and get the software, worth every penny. Nothing too crazy, but the more I spent time doing it, the more I tried to get better. I'll post something a little bit deeper in technique next time, but I'm always glad to pick up new stuff from Red Giant. Their plugins are fantastic, and I'm really happy to get to use them. Track is a remix done for Hyperdub by Rustie. Original track is called "Spliff Dub" by Zomby. If you dig the tune, go give these guys money for the album, they earn it. http://www.hyperdub.net/
