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.

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.

Night Shift

Private View
7 September 2011, 18.30 — 20.30
 

Exhibition continues to
28 September 2011


Night Shift explores the relationship between painting, sculpture and performance with new work by Simon Schäfer and Katy Kirbach.  

The exhibition examines the tension between the handmade and ready-made; multiplicity and uniqueness; live event and still object; the diurnal and nocturnal.  Night Shift is visually and aurally layered with texture, sound, digital feeds, colour and analogue electronics.

Give me a nice little twirl...



Downloaded a plugin to make gifsicle work with Gimp. You can find it here. If you ever were annoyed with the overall quality of your gifs, YOU WILL BE AMAZED. Only for Linux, though. But you might as well consider getting a proper operating system, too. Eat your heart out, Photoshop.

New work for an upcoming show is on its way.

Here's a small Vorgeschmack for both:

jetzt mal wirklich



...Also hab ich mir überlegt, mal so was Bloggiges zu richtigmachen. Ist eigentlich auch schon ein bisschen länger her, allerdings hab ich es erst jetzt geschafft, das Blog-Skript ordentlich und nach meinen Vorstellungen (zumindest halbwegs) zum Laufen zu kriegen. Selber schuld, wenn man ein Kontrollfreak ist und keine Lust drauf hat, die ganze Nummer bei Wordpress oder was zu starten. Jetzt also Blosxom... merkwürdige Weichware...

Naja, nichtsdestotrotz also dann zukünftig käsige Ergüsse und so Sachen.
Ja, Sachen.
Augenscheinlich ist das Cyber-web zwischenzeitlich dermassen voll damit, dass es letztlich keinen großen Unterschied zu machen scheint, ob man welche hinzufügt oder nicht. Obwohl ∞+1 halt immer so 'ne Sache ist.

Eigentlich nicht so spannend bis jetzt. sollte wohl noch kommen, wenn was passiert. Was auch immer passieren soll. Irgendwas passiert ja immer.

Ob die Linkerei so funktioniert, bleibt abzuwarten/auszuprobieren...

Hm, hat nicht so richtig funktioniert... mal sehn...

Na, wer beim Html die Anführungszeichen weglässt ist selber doof. Außerdem eine Gelegenheit, eine Linkerei zu Evas Youtubeaccount zu verlinken, damit sie noch viiiiiiiel viel mehr Klicke bekommt und letztendlich dann so reich und berühmt wird, dass ich mich von ihr aushalten lassen kann. Hm.

Wie dem auch sei. Erstmal so.
