A new Processing sketch with audio driving the video, additional sound and image processing using the AVSynth, vocals by George & Grace, the parakeets. And there’s more …

This is a single track, real-time, AVSynth and Processing.

A walk in the woods, new b&w Processing sketch, experimenting with a new audio patch and the Jones’ MVIP. After posting these 3 videos, I decided to mix them in Premiere, simple keying, here’re the results –
 
02 keyed over 01
 
03 keyed over 02
 
01 keyed over 03

Geometry 5, a new Processing sketch, uses gradients that take advantage of the Jones’ MVIP. Basically the same patch that I’ve used for the last two months.

Christos Koulendros – modular synth
Walter Wright – AVSynth

Two PeterB modulars and video, rehearsing for Performance Lab. New setup, long score, exploring the interaction between the two synths. Video runs independently, although patterns and phrases in both audio and video are similar. This, I believe, creates a richer, perhaps more challenging, experience for the viewer.

Spring miniTour 2018: Day 9

March 31, 2018

Up at the not-really-but-it-seems-like-it crack of dawn. Dawn, for the first time in several days, there’s sun! Stow away the sleeping gear, coffee. I make breakfast – more coffee, scrambled eggs with red onions and cheese, fresh asparagus. Dei has an online meeting. Al and I pack and repack the car, off by 11am.

Morning coffee

Off by 11am, backroads to I84, traffic is light all the way to Hartford CT, which is, as usual, slow going. However it lightens up, we cruise to Massachusetts border, I90 to I290 to I495, we’re back in Lowell by 3pm. Dei takes off for Boston. I take a shower, and change clothes. Mary Ann cooks a delicious dinner.

Back into Al’s car, we drive into Somerville, to Washington Street Arts, load in and set up.

It’s a good night, friend’s in the audience including Michael Rosenstein and Jessie Kenas Collins, our hosts, Victoria Shen, Lani Smith, and Dr T. ensemble inédit ?! impresses, the score complex yet coherent, Dei solid, and Elka Bong challenging.

We load out. Al, Mary Ann, Joe and I stop for nachos and beer. Michelle joins us, like old times. We leave Joe and Michelle at Christopher’s and head home. In bed by midnight.

Spring miniTour 2018: Day 8

March 30, 2018

Our last full day in Chester, after breakfast and book keeping, off to Enterprise in Harriman, swapping cars. Enterprise is happy to see a nice new Nissan. I’m unhappy as I may incur an extra charge for going point to point. Back to Al’s, more book keeping, editing and posting sound files.

Mid afternoon we chase the mailman around the cul de sacs that make up Al’s neighborhood, a nice square house, a big, solidly built dog, gurgling storm sewer drains, back to Al’s.

Square house

Dei takes a nap. Deb makes dinner, veggie stew, fresh asparagus, salad, off to Brooklyn, out Rte 17 to Rte 6 over Bear Mountain to the Palisades Parkway, George Washington Bridge to RFK formerly known as the Triborough Bridge to the BQE. The venue has moved from The Glove to 603^, a third floor apartment above the Silent Barn, we arrive an hour early!

A short wait, we load in. It’s cozy as in small and friendly. Our host, Clark Hamel starts moving furniture around, we set up at one end of the living room/kitchen/performance space, Tongue Depressor at the other. Audience drifts in, various sorta’ house mates drift in and out. Clark, Jack from TD, and Josh from the audience are from Bard College. Josh came to 119 Gallery once, he come to see me 8^)))
