RiteTrax – new events in Sheffield – Golden Harvest

Posted on

It is good to make new friends – a chance visit to a cafe – Golden Harvest – with my daughter just for a cuppa and a sarnie meant chatting to people and getting to know Michael and the guy running the place. I was reminded of times I spent in the Forum at a local record shop buying all sorts and spending a little time with them. Good times. Hopefully I may be able to present some of my audio visual work, perhaps do a little vjing and also dj the odd set. Put a good word in for me guys.

A new project with lots to enjoy –

in search 1

The project as a whole will involve an e-book made available via a number of online outlets. There will also be, ultimately, a full album of music – again for sale via various outlets. I will be looking to add to the whole thing pieces of audio-visual art and music videos.

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 …

Music videos and more

Posted on

Some people are a little surprised at my taste in music given my age and background. I enjoy music ranging from that music core to my youth – the soul, northern (DaveGodin was an old friend), ska, reggae, house of most styles, dnb, breaks, african music across the board, reggae of all styles, 2 step, chillstep and so on.

Here we have a series of the music videos I have enjoyed – a hipster, baroque pop, dream pop cum neo electroish pop type, a Belgian hip hop artists with roots on Rwanda, an Eritrean music video and a whole series of those created by me.

I had to search for music after popping into a local Eritrean restaurant. The food was good, the people great, and I enjoyed the music and tv playing. As I said at the time – I felt like going back to Africa.

It is interesting to note the differences in style between the various music videos. I would so love to make some videos with some of the Eritreans – seems it would be real fun.

 

audio visual art

Posted on

You will find a lot of what is called audio visual art based around:

  • installations with projections
  • code and its products
  • electronica and abstractions

The audio visual art I produce tends to be rather more film, animation, music video and text oriented.

recessive glitch

You can think of a lot of what I produce as something akin to visual art in the way that chamber music relates to the orchestral. It is not so dramatic, not looking to be so clever, it is looking to be gently expressive.

end of games

With many forms of art in recent years  there has been value to be found in combining old techniques, old formats, old styles with other elements, creating something new and, as well, a commentary on it all. Does everything have to exist within the confines of the present?

Sunday 9:45 – music, video, more …

Posted on Updated on

There is something about that move from late summer into autumn and the heralding of the winter – cold and white. Whereas for many greys simply signify dullness, an indescription. The combination of a form of gentler music, chilled but not quite … a grey background or a collection of greys …. oddly animated colour as a contrasting highlight … mentions of water, autumnal foliage, suitably coloured in themselves, late evening, sunset …

Although this is not quite chillstep I have included it within the aromatiq youtube playlist. The music videos are shortened versions of how the complete projects may turn out and they are on a chilled tip. Take a listen to the aromatiq chillstep mixes – futurhood av. Included here are some branding mockups of how the products may turn out.
