Had a great session at Shop-Stoke today. Today turned out to be more of a workshop for 2 local artists wishing to look at areas such as sound production and visual mixing (VJ’ing).
The interesting point here is the fact they both brought material with them to mix, burn, fx and play with.
Rachel had a field recording recorded at a music festival on a dictaphone which at first she wanted to discover why the sound quality was poor but soon discovered she could use the sound to make something completely new using free or inexpensive tools.
Clinton is our stop motion friend, well actually he is real, he makes stop motion films. He has brought in some of his graduate work with fantastic 2D and 3D short films. I put the 2D film through VDMX and showed him how we could mash the video clip with a range of FX and sound activated geekery; we had a little fun with that in prep for tomorrow.
Clinton is our residency resident dancer which he captured on DV camera a fine bowler hatted ‘Clock Orange’ inspired dance last Sunday which will be projected inside the Shop tomorrow night while we beam visual mashups on the Spode factory walls.
Tomorrow night will be a fabulous occasion, bringing together the last few weeks work, ideas and new bITjAM friends.
