Another John Parker piece I animated
Update: "Personal 'anti-broadband ghetto' threshold": Just trying to keep the kilobytes per post down on this page, optimally in the 25-65 KB range, so the blog is viewable on dial-up. It's tempting to post higher-res images and more elaborate animations for the broadband elite, but the self-imposed limits for the page (e.g., no image wider than 580 pixels) force thinking in a more economic lo-fi way. [/self-satisfied explanation]
Update 2: The animation this post linked to has been changed to something a little peppier.
"Mutator OD Bass" [1.9 MB .mp3]. The Mutator is an analog filter unit with a very full, liquid sound. It is practically a synth unto itself. This piece uses a couple of repeating bass notes that are transformed by external audio and MIDI signals affecting the Mutator's LFOs and envelope followers. The drums are the only thing added, the rest is the Mutator and mostly done in real time.

Update on my upcoming Williamsburg show: the title will be "Room Sized Animated GIFs." We'll be projecting a couple of them big on opposite sides of the room, with smaller ones looping on TVs along a third wall. Friday, May 5, at artMovingProjects.
We changed the date--it was originally Saturday, but the intermittent L train repair shutdowns make that day an iffy proposition in Wmsburg.
Animation based on John Parker flat work (see below).
This is a piece of mine, not a .GIF based on John Parker's work. I'm using it as reference.
I am working on a collaborative project with John Parker for a show in Toronto. It will be both music and video--details to follow. He has been remixing some of my Mac SE tunes. I'm going to try some animated GIFs based on images of his artwork from his website. We'll see where it goes.
Plug: S.I.D.S. (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome--these kids today and their band names, why back in my day...oh, yeah, whoops) from Athens, GA, is playing at Capone's in Brooklyn tonight, 221 N. 9th, betw. Driggs and Roebling. If you can't make it, check out some of their music at the myspace link above. Punkoid sound featuring overdriven keyboards (with bass, drums and enraged vocals), as opposed to the dreaded ubiquitous g***tar.
