Signal Culture Residency: Day 1

October 20, 2017

Left Lowell at 9am, exactly …

Packed up, everything fits in the trunk!

BOOMCHICKAPOP

and arrived in Owego 6hrs later at 3pm. I was a couple of hours early, expecting to get in closer to 5pm. The drive was relatively uneventful, stop & go on I90 near Westfield MA, lost 30min. However, it was a beautiful day, the trees were near peaking, red & gold leaves everywhere.

Hank was waiting at Signal Culture. We unloaded the car, chatted for 45min, then Hank took off and I started unpacking and organizing.

Toolmakers’ workspace

Setup the computer, AVSynth, audio and video. Next a rescan monitor inside an empty rack covered in black cloth, Spent the evening testing the rescan monitor and listening to audio files. Works, will check it out again tomorrow along with the AVSynth.

AVSynth: Geometry recorded June 9, 2017

June 10, 2017

 

AVSynth using Projektor, a Processing sketch, as input, take 2.

Geometry is a b& w Processing sketch using only circles, squares, vertical bars and horizontal lines. On each frame, these simple ‘shapes’ will be drawn randomly, or not. The size and position of the shapes is also random, as are the fade and frame rate. Color and effects are added by the Jones’ MVIP.

patch

Sound is generated by using PeterB’s SWOOP, FOURSES and SPROTT modules.

Both sound and video are touch-controlled using a Mikrophonie module and PeterB’s Mr GRASSI.

All done in real-time, no edits.

A second version of the “film”, still working on the Processing sketch. A better recording, getting there!

Projektor: Chailey Mansion March, 2017

Projektor is a Processing sketch, thinking of developing it as module for the AVSynth. Actually, each film will be a separate sketch, played back in real-time.

This video was recorded off my computer screen, not ideal, when the screen goes black you can see my workbench 8^)))

AVSynth, now in a single 104hp rack, includes – (3) Mikrophonies, (1) Mr GRASSI, (1) SWOOP, (1) FOURSES, (1) SPROTT, a couple of multiples, (1) Jones’ Sync Stripper, (1) Ardcore, (1) Jones’ MVIP.

20170215_patchPatch

The patch is straightforward, a Mikrophonie controls video gain and Bounds in FOURSES oscillator 3, Mr GRASSI controls bounds on SWOOP, bounds on FOURSES, and HP and LP filters on SPROTT, the (4) FOURSES outputs are patched to the (4) SPROTT inputs. Video In is patched to the Jones’ SS and Vertical Drive out to the Ardcore Clock In. Ardcore Trigger Outs are patched to Jones’ MVIP Hue 1 and 2 in, and the DAC outs to BitSwap In and Mode In.

AVSynth Phase 4, recorded directly to my MacBook Pro, audio and video.

Something different, rehearsing for a gig at AS220, using the AVSynth, I’m on the left, video from laptop is processed using the AVSynth and output to the monitor, for the gig we will use a projector. My audio is passed to Christos who mixes our sound together and outputs to his powered speakers.

Recorded on my camcorder, off the monitor, quality not so good.
