A Semiconductor work by Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt. Audio Data courtesy of CARISMA, operated by the University of Alberta, funded by the Canadian Space Agency. Special Thanks to Andy Kale. Made for the exhibition Invisible Fields at Arts Santa Monica in Barcelona Spain. http://www.lighthouse.org.uk/programme/invisible-fields 20 Hz observes a geo-magnetic storm occurring in the Earth's upper atmosphere. Working with data collected from the CARISMA radio array and interpreted as audio, we hear tweeting and rumbles caused by incoming solar wind, captured at the frequency of 20 Hertz. Generated directly by the sound, tangible and sculptural forms emerge suggestive of scientific visualisations. As different frequencies interact both visually and aurally, complex patterns emerge to create interference phenomena that probe the limits of our perception. 05.00 minutes. / HD / 2011 HD single channel and HD 3D single channel. 20Hz is co-commissioned by Arts Santa Monica + Lighthouse . Supported by the British Council. http://www.semiconductorfilms.com/root/20Hz/20Hz.htm+ More details

Everyone knows ice is white and clear and sometimes blue. I discovered when I was working with small slices of ice sheets in polarized light that it also has a secret life -- a gorgeous spectrum of rainbow saturated colors. It also has some amazing hidden structures that shift and grow and shrink as the ice is freezing and melting. I put together a short sequence of the most dynamic transformations.

Spectrum is a growing collection of real-time visuals that explores the intrinsic relation between sound and image. The animation system reacts to audio in different ways according to the frequency spectrum.

This piece primarily designed to test the Sony A7s and new Atomos Shogun in very low light. However it also has a personal meaning that any parent with a child (especially one with special needs) will understand. Note the title and the subtle meanings buried within the imagery in this piece. Filmed at the Stone Zoo “Zoolights” experience in Stoneham MA. Techie details: I took out the Sony A7s out with a Sony Zeiss 24-70 F4 OIS lens with the Atomos Shogun slapped on top recording 4K and film at stupidly high ISOs. All hand held, with the camera strapped to my neck and the Shogun on top of the camera with the excellent Manfrotto 492LCD heavy duty ball mount. While you can get away with this, I recommend using a cage for any real length of time. This was an extremely low light situation, and honestly I don’t think 4K helped much here as the detail in the recording was reduced due to the low light. I shot this anywhere from 12,000 to 80,000 ISO, at F5.6 or F4. Neat Video noise reduction was applied to many of the shots. Graded with Filmconvert, which I might add can be quite slow in FCPX with 4K ProRes on an 8-core D700 Mac Pro. The actual rendering isn’t slow, but the UI slows way down once the filter is applied if you try to edit anything. I will be transitioning to Resolve for CC in the future. One of the issues with filming at such insane ISOs is that any light source will blow out when you are trying to capture the shadow detail. The 422 high bitrate ProRes from the Shogun helped in this regard, but you can only push 8 bits so far. And over-exposed is over-exposed. Situations like this really scream for more bits. The opening shot had blinking of LEDs that I could not tune out, but was left in as a story element. For the rest of my Atomos Shogun review - the good and the bad, see this post: http://www.anticipatemedia.com/blog/2014/12/24/atomos-shogun-4k-recorder-review You can download the 4K original file below, but note it is a 100Mbit re-compressed file from the original ProRes which was too big to upload.
