FluCoMa logo and video bumper

I’ve made the logo and video bumper for FluCoMa

What is FluCoMa?
The Fluid Corpus Manipulation project (FluCoMA) instigates new musical ways of exploiting ever-growing banks of sound and gestures within the digital composition process, by bringing breakthroughs of signal decomposition DSP and machine learning to the toolset of techno-fluent computer composers, creative coders and digital artists.

To create these I:

1) Used Affinity Designer – this was the first time I made something for someone else using vectors. I normally draw using traditional media (and I’ll occasionally color using Photoshop)
2) Created and filmed many different types of ink behavior, on paper and in water
3) Revisited my aviglitch library scripts from when I made Its Fleece Electrostatic, to create the glitch effects found in the video bumper
4) Used Final Cut to animate the different elements of the logo for the bumper
5) And of course just sketched a lot using pencil and paper to get initial ideas down, or to try to change the direction of the design. 

Here are some key moments in the logo’s evolution (Though it wasn’t exactly as linear as this and I’ve left out some things.)

But I Guess, In The End, We Just Moved Furniture Around (Video Version)

This is a collaboration with David Pocknee and Richard Craig. It’s definitely David’s piece but he invited us into the compositional process with him. We met several times over the span of two years to come up with what this work ultimately became. It was just a lot of trying things out; a lot of looking at stuff and a lot of moving stuff around. David is good at combinations. I just love him. We You can find the score here (on David’s website).

Not the Rodrigo Constanzo Story

My new comic is ready to be held by your delicate reader hands. I did the artwork and my partner Rodrigo Constanzo wrote the script. We didn’t give it a title, but it’s NOT called The Rodrigo Constanzo Story. It’s 32 laser printed pages on “silk coated” paper. 

Below, you can find the online version. If you enjoy it, treat yourself to a physical copy. It’ll come with a few stickers and Rod’s fantastic mac n’ cheese recipe on the back cover! Or if you don’t want a physical copy but still want to support this comic-making behavior, you can make a donation via paypal to angela.guyton@gmail.com (it would be much appreciated :) )
 
 
 
 
 

How do I get a copy?

Paypal the correct amount (given your geographic region) to:
angela.guyton@gmail.com
Make sure you give me your mailing address too!!
When you send payment write your address in the notes section.

 
£5 …….. If you live in the UK or Porto and you’re going to see me or Rod in person. (you can pay in cash.)
 
£6.50 …….. If you want it mailed to you and you live in Europe or the UK
 
$9 …….. If you live in the New World (North & South America). It’s the postage that pushes this up–I’m so sorry! I just want to make five bucks for something that took me a crazy amount of time to make! Like, seriously, crazy. But yes, shipping is included in this price, and it’s coming to you out of either Manchester, England or Porto, Portugal (Basically wherever it is I’ve stashed them at the time you order).

 

And here’s the online version. Enjoy!

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. 


Field Recording – written by Jason Wehmhoener
frogs-at-midnightfrogs-color^March 25th. I think I prefer this one in black and white only but here you can see how I tried coloring it in. I think in general I prefer flat color, which is a staple of older comics and posters. Calvin’s hair was yellow (if any color at all) and it was beautiful.

[ factory ] a long rope

A living score asks you if you’re interested in realizing a work she’s the archive to.
This video is my yes.

[factory] is a proposal for collaborative performance action(s).
This video realization–“[factory] a long rope”– was created by me and  features Mira Benjamin performing sections of her own realization of [factory]. She would normally do this in live performance settings so working on this video with me was a deviation from that too.

[factory] began as a set of 22 texts written by Luke Nickel. These texts—or verbal scores—were linked by a geographical map, with each text representing an individual conceptual area or room. Luke and Mira Benjamin (the original performer) agreed upon a risky proposal: she would read the texts only once and then delete them, allowing the work to exist solely in her memory and inviting forgettings and linguistic permutations to infect the ephemeral score-object itself. Mira is now the living score for the work, voluntarily responsible for its transferral, transformation and translation.
