Unfolding Systems

video here
"Vincent Houzé © 2008
Vincent created and animated this beautiful evolving machine to the sound of the music with heavy use of Houdini's CHOPs, L-Systems and copy stamping. All the animation is completely procedural (no keyframes, with exception of the camera movement), and driven by the audio track which was also created by Vincent. Mathematical expressions, and dynamic simulations were also used to drive some of the animation."

The Wide Blue Room

YouTube via JohnLRice | August 28, 2010

"This is a modular synthesizer "drone" (a dark ambient drone, I guess)presented with a poem by my late sister Cathy. (R.I.P. xxoo)

Drones are best listened to on good quality full range sound systems as they are not about melodies, harmonies, rhythms and flashy dynamics but about deep complex textures and subtle changes.

I think some poems are like drones, and often are not so much about predictable rhymes and quaint but obvious descriptions of nature's beauty or lustful passions but are about deep complex thoughts that are stated . . . elusively.

I hope you enjoy listening to my drone while you ponder the poetry of my sister and watch the images I've chosen.

It's not so much about figuring out what this video is "supposed to mean", (I'm still not sure about a lot of it ;-), it's more for thinking about what it means to YOU . . . or . . . just sit back and think of something else while it plays.

Thank you for watching, commenting and rating!"

As clean as fire was produced via overdubs of modular synthesizer, one monophonic line at a time. This means that each sound you hear was patched and created specifically for that moment in the composition. As clean as fire employs a Risset rhythm, which is a type of audio illusion to give the impression of a constantly accelerating tempo. Try tapping your finger to the beat.

I anticipate a Fall 2010 release for 'A Funneled Stone'"

Rhizome by matia


"This is a record I am putting together which is basically a compilation of a bunch of single take jams with predominantly analogue synths over the last 8 years or so recorded in London and California. It features a lot of the classic (808, 101, 303, Jupiter 8 ...) instruments (if you click on each song there is a detailed list of all the stuff used per track. First two tracks will probably come out as a 12 inch vinyl pressing sometime in the fall."
