The Shnth Comes to England – with Peter Blasser

I am extremely proud of this documentary that I made about instrument designer/luthier Peter Blasser, of Ciat-Lonbarde and Shbobo. I really wanted to depict the person I got to know over those few days–his sense of humor, his intelligence, and of course I wanted to showcase the new instrument he’d just developed. That’s why he was in England, in fact: to lead a workshop at the University of Huddersfield where the participants built and programmed their own Shnths. Rod organized bringing Peter over with his school (and P.A. Tremblay specifically), and the rest is history. Peter Blasser came to England. Enjoy the documentary. I really enjoyed making it.

Ryoko Akama had her composition performed by Sumie Kent, master koto player. I made this video of that performance. Beautiful koto sounds.

Locative Audio

Ricardo Climent asked me to document the locative audio event hosted by Novars at the University of Manchester. This is the result. I gathered footage over two days–the practice/set-up day and the actual day. A lot of cool stuff that gave me ideas for my own cool stuff down the line–and specifically from having seen Atau Tanaka’s performance. Also Alex Allred’s essay was really poetic (here’s a link to that text in full). If you would like more information about the event there’s this from NoTours.

A Greater Horror

I made this video for A Greater Horror. This is their very loose re-imagining of Tyler, the Creator’s “Bastard”. While filming, I decided to try to hold a camera in each hand so there would be a bunch of different angles, since I’d be moving the whole time. It was good. I had to stabalize a good shot with one hand before moving my other hand into another good position–and the whole time leap frogging like this. Since the majority of this song is improvised its not like I could just use shots from other takes willy-nilly. This video is edited from mostly one take though I do sneak in a few seconds from other takes for the chorus.

Rodrigo Constanzo – electronics + keys
Mauricio Pauly – electric guitar
Alex Tod – drums

HISS Tools – Impulse Response Tutorials

I shot and edited this video. It stars Rod and he’s explaining some crazy voodoo that Alex Harker and P.A. Tremblay have been researching at the University of Huddersfield. Basically they steal the soul of a room so it can then be imbued into any recording to make it sound as if that recorded music was recorded IN that room. Whatever–its impressive looking. Watch it and learn something.

Here is the second video of the series:

A Danimation

Inspired by the animation of Don Hertzfeldt, A Danimation is my first attempt at creating a short animation.  It was made in the summer of 2006 in a small efficiency in Miami, Florida.  I made it at 10fps and by drawing each frame out on single sheets of paper, flip-book style.  As its composed entirely of inside jokes, it may or may not be funny to you depending on your relationship to our protagonist, Dan Escauriza.
