LibLab "Deep Space" - Sound

YouTube via machineheadusa

'INTERFERENCE" exists as a result of MACHINE HEAD extending it's sound bending activities into the realm of light. Having created the LibLab (Library Laboratory) soundscapes we wanted to visualize the sounds with materials created to not just accompany the sound pieces, but be actually modified by them.

Using Max5, custom video processing patches were devised by Machine Head to use the sonic information within the LibLab pieces to cause distortions to the visual elements. The visuals are made up of two layers of film produced by Machine Head. Stephen Dewey's film "I Live In LA" was shot in thirty second bursts using the original Visor modular camera. The overlay footage was shot by Trevor Thorpe@MH. The net result is an intertwining of the two elements from within their own fabric.

MACHINE HEAD will continue to release FIVE SENSES: INTERFERENCE throughout the coming months."
