This tune is all about Waltz. I wanted that feeling of threes. I also wanted to dive into some analog sample packs from Live that Ableton gave away for free on their site. I was mostly just testing out some of these new synth patches. They sound pretty nice.
The other day I filmed a caterpillar repelling onto the sidewalk from the tree outside my house, and for some reason it came to me that this little guy was performing some strange type of aerial ballet. It then hit me that it may work well with the waltz piece I was working on. Henceforth, this:
This new video of mine is a tribute to the magic of sunlight and its mysterious language. Nearly all of images in which light is the subject were recorded in my apartment after work during the early evening. My apartment is special in that way, because of the glorious warm light that comes in between the branches of my neighbors redwood tree, through my window, and dances along my walls. I believe that there are messages inside the movement of the light, as if it’s telling a story or singing a song.
I recorded the music for this video in Ableton Live. I chose chimes with delay and reverb because I felt it went well with the bokeh-like effect of the light artifacts. I’m using an acoustic guitar for several other layers of the tune as well, and the synth stabs are Reason. TR-808 drum machine with triplet timing. Thanks for clicking!
Cameras are great for capturing duckfaces at our favorite bars. We know this. Less known is the awesome power of light itself as a subject, and that is the focus of this weird little video that I threw together relatively quickly tonight after work. Enjoy! Oh, and thank you for clicking.
Nickie Tilsner and I put on an electro night every third Saturday at Radio Bar in Oakland. We would love it if you could make it out this coming Saturday for the occasion. We play a lot of electro, yes, but also branch out into Dark Wave, Glitch Hop and Indie Pop. On top of that we project experimental videos and various little animations. It’s free to get in and the drinks are cheap. Hope you can make it out!
