Gazillion Gazebo Video



Here's some documentation of the Gazillion Gazebo project. It was a lot fun, even if I expected to freeze off a toe or my arse or something...

Anyways, here it is, and with it a big thank you to the great people of LICHTER Streetview, The Frankfurter Verein für Künstlerhilfe for saving the project financially and Heike for filming. And of course to everyone who was there for being there!

Gazillion Gazebo und Walpodenakademie



Nun ist es also eine Sache! Oder genau genommen sogar zwei.

Nachdem sich der Frankfurter Verein fuer Kuenstlerhilfe e.V. bereit erklaert hat, das Projekt finanziell zu schultern, Ist es mir eine aussergewoehnliche Freude, mitzuteilen, dass meine merkwuerdige Kopfgeburt Gazillion Gazebo tatsaechlich stattfinden wird.

Was dann auch bedeutet, dass ich mir dann am Freitag und Samstag jeweils von 20-22 Uhr in Frankfurt auf dem Rossmarktgelaende umgeben von jeder Menge anderer abgefahrener Projekte anderer Leute ordentlich den Allerwertesten abfrieren darf. Hui, das wird ein Spass.

Weiterhin gibt es dann noch begeistert zu vermelden, dass ich am darauf folgenden Montagabend, den 25. Maerz in der Walpodenakademie in Mainz unter dem wirren Motto: "Drinnen draussen sein", audiovisuell aufspielen werde. Wer also nach der Lichternummer noch nicht genug, oder dafuer keine Zeit gefunden hat, der soll doch einfach nach Mainz kommen. Das ist dann dem "draussen" im Namen zum Trotze auch drinnen, da muss man dann also nicht so frieren.

Hier ach nochmal das offizielle Fressenbuch-event. das teht dann noch ein wirrer Text und eine Wegbeschreibung dabei: https://www.facebook.com/events/305919449535687/?ref=ts&fref=ts

Gazillion Gazebo Aufruf!



Liebe Frankfurter/Offenbacher/Umfeldianer,

Lichter Streetview

Ich wurde von Lichter Streetview eingeladen, am 22.-23. 3. in der Frankfurter Innenstadt eine neue Performance/Intervention mit dem Namen 'Gazillion Gazebo' zu präsentieren:

An audio-visal live performance/installation loosely based on the overflow of information encountered in an urban environment. Operating a laboratory of Warstware (circuit bent video and sound equipment), Simon Schäfer alias der Warst transforms a customary gazebo into both an immersive environment and a vibrant public sculpture.

Leider haben sich jetzt Probleme ergeben, die es den Lichterleuten leider nicht ermöglichen, mir die erforderliche Technik zur Verfügung zu stellen. Das ist ärgerlich, ich fände es allerdings sehr schade, wenn dadurch die ganze Sache ins Wasser fallen müsste. Also ist DIY angesagt.

Ich brauche für die Realisation des Projektes folgendes:

Wenn ihr irgend etwas von der obigen Liste habt, das ich für zwei Nächte ausleihen kann oder irgend jemanden wisst, der mir hier weiterhelfen könnte, möchte ich euch bitten, mir so schnell wie möglich bescheid zu sagen.

Gazillion Gazebo



Usually, I don't talk publicly about stuff that I just sent out, having no idea how the other side is gonna pick it up. I spent hours and hours today thinking about how to write two sentences. After having actively avoided to think about them for some days. And then it just had to be done. No time, no time.

And here it was. After hours of trying to formulate some farty crap to impress whomever:

I really want to do this. Hopefully it's gonna work...

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!!!

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.

Night shift revisited



It's been close to a year now since I had the Night Shift show at Simon Oldfield Gallery. Yesterday, I was surprised in a very very nice way by Rebecca Helen Page, who has filmed bits of the performance I've done there and uploaded them to Vimeo.

It was quite a noisy performance with very weird sound and I had very short hair at that time.

The desk I had my instruments on was absolutely gorgeous. It felt like my own private TARDIS.

Thanks a lot Rebecca.

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.

atmer: dlp



It sometimes happens that I find myself creating something that just makes me sit back and stare at it forever. It happened in this case and I'm really proud of it. Made only with a few lines of improper html (marquee tag), a bit of css and one gif animation.

It also marks the 27th addition to the ongoing atmer project
