The wreck of former boundaries (music video)

 

This is a music video I made that features the electronic version of Aaron Cassidy‘s The wreck of former boundaries (“The wreck of former boundaries (2014-15) for fixed media 5.1-channel electronics”).

I asked Aaron if he wouldn’t mind sitting down with me while I filmed him. I didn’t know what I would make, but felt like I had enough kernal thoughts/feelings at the time that something not hollow would happen. I was sitting in a talk he was giving about his new work, and as he played this piece, I was struck by how he listened. That’s when it became clear to me that I needed to capture both of these things: his words and his listening. The rest of my ideas would hang on this as the material, or this would be the material through which I’d look into those things.  

This is the first thing I made out of that material: A music video.
I love music videos.

I didn’t know this is where I would take this, but after reviewing the beautiful shots captured that day, I got really excited and decided this was the thing to do. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed the process of discovery in assembling it.

For the most part, his reactions in the video are in sync with the sounds he’s hearing. It was important to me to preserve that. However, there are some time-stretch manipulations, and in just a few cases I cut in footage from other moments as necessary band-aids in the editing process. I also manipulated the footage in order to assist you in seeing what I see. I tried to do this as unobtrusively and subtly as possible.

It’s also worth mentioning that we ran through the piece only once. While I am very familiar with the piece (having listened to it many times leading up to this shoot) I felt it important to improvise the lighting direction. I have an almost metaphysical trust in improvisation, and enjoy the process of being in that kind of heightened state of awareness.

David Pocknee and Susie Green were my assistants on that day.
Susie helped with the gear and play-back audio,
and David helped me as a light operator, and by recording the interview’s audio. 
Thanks to them, and of course thanks to Aaron for his trust in my process.

(Here you can read Aaron’s post about it on his webpage.)

Lines and Panels

Some folks on llllllll.co (the lines forum, and thus the ^ title) are helping me with ideas for 3 panel comic strips. I made a post on there and just asked if anyone had any ideas, because I’m just in that mood to draw comics. They’re a great group of people and I’ve been really inspired by what they’ve written thus far.

He got it wrong, but also I might have explained the rules wrong.
Ok, both are true.

[Mostly Album] Design

Please click the ‘CONTINUE READING’ link below to see the full post with all the designs. There are many many designs in this post. Also, if you want to buy any of these albums directly from the artists just click their link above the image.

If you’d like me to apply myself to a project you’re working on just email me so we can discuss what you want, compensation, and timelines.  Here are some of the album package designs/concepts I’ve created for some very talented musicians in the past. Only the most recent will appear. 

Madwort Saxophone Quartet – Live at Hundred Years Gallery
I collaborated on this design with saxophonist/printmaker Cath Roberts. I had done the flowers initially and passed the block off to Cath to add more of an edge with the brambles. Then Cath printed them all up by hand as well, and they look fantastic.
