Signal Culture Residency: Day 6

October 25, 2017

Habitually up early, coffee, scrambled eggs!

Quote of the day –

“Good morning boring art!”
~ Nam June Paik

Spent the morning on administrivia including email, messages, updating my blog, etc. I’m still processing videos from the day before yesterday, compressing to H.264 takes hours and hours.


Al Margolis

At 11:30am Al Margolis arrives. We tour the facility, a full house, Charlotte Clermont is in the Artists’ Studio, Hank Rudolph and Matt are in the Research/living and dining room. We return to the Toolmakers’ Studio and set up to record a couple tracks as ELKA BONG: Al Margolis – viola, objects, contact mics; Walter Wright – AVSynth –

track 01
track 02

We toured around this time last Fall, the first time the AVSynth went ‘on the road’. Looking forward to touring again soon with the enhanced rig and Processing sketches.

At 1:30pm we go for lunch at the Taqueria, after lunch a short walk along the river, then back to the studio. Al packs up, heads back down Rte17 to Chester.

I’m still processing video, sorting audio files. Listening back. Success, the AVSynth looks and sounds great!

Two tracks recorded one after the other without listening back to the previously recorded track. Track 1 AVSynth, track 2 on-the-floor percussion, edited in Audacity. Working on technique for playing with Al 8^)))
