VJing, visuals and crazy club nights

Posted on

The visuals you use for any event should add to the whole, give something more to what is presented. So! Vjing for events provides interesting opportunities – to either create something new, or as with anything such, to fail and do little or nothing.

Creating for certain sorts of music can be somehwat easy. Visual flavours suggest themsleves for particular areas of music, especially if you have a real emotional connection with that music. Creating a visual experience for a mate’s event when it is not an area of music that you normally inhabit – that is something else.

In search of lost colours

Posted on

A new project I hope will stretch across a number of media – illustration, audio visual art, music, graphic e-zines and whatever else comes to mind and my ‘pen’.

I have now done further work on all of this – there are 2 tunes written already, there will, I hope, be a full album of varied tuneage to sit alongside a full range of music videos, the e-book and a whole load more …

… and to begin …

There are days when I really wish I was back in africa. To you all of my old friends in Lesotho, to all of those friends I have made since, to those who gave me this love of music from the french caribean, the portuguese tuneage and more, for those who showed me zouk, zouk chouv, kizomba, kompa, kwaito, and so much more …

roughened edges and home

It has been said so many times before…

–  there are the roughened edges of particular suburbs, they show that they are lived in and that there is effort being undertaken

– things are being done, life is lived, things go on, the small particles of history are made and in all of that the edges become a little roughened

– there is something other than the glossy, well polished and bright and within that there is something not only of value but with an aesthetic all of its own

I really like my moody evenings and skies as you might have guessed. I tend to like certain sorts of music that goes with all such. Given my age it might be a little odd for people – I love my chillstep, deep dubstep but then I also love my older balearic chill, deep house and the like.

Mentioned here are a couple of artists that I really have some time for – Soular Order, a Manchester based producer and also Christian Hornbostel. The two are very different but still they have the capacity to add to particular moments and moods. You can find some of the photos from our group on Sellfy –
