Videoprints



A while ago, I scanned the videoprints I've done during live av performances around 2008-2009. I made them with a printer that connects directtly to a composite video input, which was plugged into the output of my video mixer. Since doing live video is more or less my way of painting (not entirely true: I'm currently making the weirdest paintings, but they're not quite ready to be published, yet), these are probably the closest things to static paintings I've made. At least around that time. There are 74 prints, some of which have been collaborations with Eva Becker.

Of course, with 74 prints, not all of them can be of the same quality, still I like most of them a lot.

Here's a few of my favourites in no particular order:

37

I might upload more of them as soon as I have built a proper project page for them.

Autumnblips.



I have posted it elsewhere on christmas, but I completely forgot to post it here. Oh well, happy chinese new year then...

Here is the recording of my gig at autumnblips at Panke in Berlin.
A few months after this gig, the memory battery of one of my gameboy cartridges died, thereby erasing two years worth of songs. The idiot that I am also hasn't really taken care of backing up anything since then. Some of those songs I have not even recorded. I will never be able to play, let alone hear them anymore. No one will. They will be fading ghosts in the back of my brain that will haunt me whenever I get reminded of a particular melody or a beat or whatever...

Everytime I touch my Gameboy now, or actually any portable gaming device, it burns LIKE HELL!!!!. I will have to learn to love it again, but right now the disappointment is overpowering.

This was the last real 'official' recording from this particular cart. It feels very important to me, because it kind of sums up what I've been doing in those two years. And it shows me that it's time for a change in program. The Gameboy has dominated my set for quite a while now and in a way, I have started to let myself be limited through that.

So, a few days ago, I built a new Lab, And from here on, I think my sound will be a bit different again. Looking forward to a new challenge.

Video Hackspace



meta-creation_date: 10/2/2013 07:16:15 Fabrizio D'Amico from Video Hackspace came over. We talked about doing a visual circuit bending workshop soon. It was very pleasant.

I borrowed a projector and he filmed some of my pictures with his telephone. Then he uploaded them to Youtube. Here they are:



Also, I had a very nice/strange night. More things soon.

Videophone new step!



Yesterday, I built in the internal screen.
Pretty machine.
I'm working on this like crazy again. Also, a few days ago, I finished general bending on a Zoom 506 II bass pedal. Needs a bit more polishing and some solution for a nice controllable internal feedback.
But already: O.M.F.G!!!

videophone screen

A lot more soon to come.

Fuck Yeah!

Videophone growing



I finally managed to upload some stuff I recorded with the Videophone (which now also has it's final name, yay). I'm still building on it like crazy, so there's lots more to come.

Here's also a picture of its last stage (it already looks different again, but I am way slower with documenting than I am with building.

Videophone

I am currently building the screen to the left inside the housing.

Here's two recordings I've made. More to come, soon.

Exzentriker.



Erinnernd hier jetz:
Während eines meiner ersten Alkoholrräusche (öh, Rausche?) auf dem Hochheimer Weinfest vor langer langer Zeit:
Sekt war im Spiel und Boris Urban schleppte mich später nach Hause. Wirklich ziemlich fast ganz bis nach Hause. Ich nehme an, er war besorgt um mich.
Bevor er dazu Gelegenheit bekam, saß ich auf der Verkehrsinsel zwischen dem Musikgeschäft Bock und dem damaligen, oder aber erst späteren, Drogeriegeschäft Idea. In der an das Musikgeschäft Bock angegliederten Musikschule hatte ich einige Jahre Musikunterricht genommen für Instrumente, die ich heute so nicht mehr spiele. Im Idea wurde ich einmal gefragt, ob ich die Zahnbürste nicht bezahlen wolle. Wohlgemerkt in einem Alter, in dem ich durchaus ab und an etwas mitgehen ließ, aber doch nun wirklich keine Zahnbürsten.
Im seltsamen Bereich zwischen so nie erlebtem Delirium und einem schräg, aber halbwegs klar tickenden Hinterkopf. Mit Leuten um mich rum sprechend, im vollen Bewusstsein meines eigenen Unvermögens, auch nur annähernd klare Sätze zu formen.
Währenddessen, die, infolge kürzlicher begeisterter Lektüre des gesamten "Sherlock Holmes", nicht völlig von der Hand zu weisende Vorstellung, sich in einer Droschke auf dem Weg von A nach B zu befinden.

A nach B.

Kein raus erstmal.
Irgendwann aber wieder vorbei.

Und heute aber immer wieder trotzdem seltsam, gleichzeitg, mit dieser [intensivierendes Adjektiv] Distanz zu beobachten, quasi aus dem Droschkenfenster raus, wie ich halt unwahrscheinlich bin.

Was ist denn das mit der Kommunikation?

Wie geht das in diesen Zwischenräumen?

So halt: Ich mach was ich mach und dann bin ich raus. Oder ihr oder wer. Oder was?

Und dann aber eben tanzen.
Als ob alle hinschauen.
Und alle schauen hin.
Gebens aber nicht zu.

PR-Problem.

Und haben die anderen da dann wirklich Orgien, oder reden sie nur drüber? Naja, manche haben, weiß ich ja... Und aber trotzdem, eh: ein Stückchen Haut anfassen, und plötzlich ist alles falsch?

Adoleszentes Isolationspartyvolk.

Oder doch wieder nur der Blick aus der Droschke?
Keine Ahnung, ich hab ja nichtmal wirklich Drogen genommen.

Video Glitch Thing



There's something awesome growing and it's high time I posted it here:

So yeah... these are the first tests with the new video glitch thing I'm building. No better name yet, but oooh it's gonna look sexy!

It's based on Gijs Gieskes brilliant GVP1 Video effects processor

As usually, I'm going way over the top with the circuit bending. And then there will also be the whole VGA part of it which I haven't even messed with, yet.

Exciting.

soon more.
