Lonesome Blues

YouTube and Vimeo lend themselves to short singular work, which would be perfect for so much of my earlier real-time video segments. I intended to create singular clips for posting some of the many short works that went into my early compilations like Green River Blues, Lonesome Blues, and Video Haiku, see Untitled #20. Looking at this material though, I changed course and cut a compilation of work called Lonesome Blues, originally known as Suicide Blues.


Insomnia

Insomnia was recorded at the Experimental Television Center in three sessions in March, August, and September of 1984. There was another session in May none of the work of which was used. This came on the heals of Bug Eyed Ramrod. The two pieces used similar methods and both employed the CAT fame buffer (this is prior to building the Jones frame buffer).


some history

My video hardware development work for the Experimental Television Center, and for Design Lab, included a contribution in building the last generation of custom Jones analog and digital image and sound synthesizers currently installed at the Television Center. I also have constructed various audio and video synths including a unique modular Jones video synthesizer.
