Posts for this category are about the video work. My image processed video work are serial constructions that are produced with custom built analog and digital processors. Each section is a synthesized real time recording where sound and image are parallel electronic structures which are mutually controlled by predetermined waveshapes.
Most often, periodic wave forms (the basic analog elements generated with oscillators) are used as image source. The essential structure of these wave forms, a periodic change over time that defines a shape (sine, triangle, ramp, etc.), belongs to a class of primordial rhythmic experiences. They participate in, and express, the natural and physical ordering principles of our environment.
A couple of years back I began a process of digitizing original 3/4″ recordings from the 80′s and re-cutting the material to conform to the original edits in Final Cut. Some material seems to be irretrievable though most of it was saved, even if it had a good deal of drop out. The video on the work page were digitized using DVlabs compression, which is high quality than vimeo or youtube.
Lumpy Banger was recorded at the Experimental Television Center, in Owego, in a single session in June 1985. Lumpy Banger was a nickname, it had been with me for a while when I was young. I hadn’t thought about it for a long time, and though I never planned to use the name, upon finishing this piece I couldn’t resist.
