Ithaca Video Synthesis Workshop

Looking forward to wrapping my brain around this CHA/V and Videffektor that I build as part of a video synthesis workshop hosted by Jonas Bers and Bob Drake at the Grayhaven Motel in Ithaca, NY this weekend!

360 Version – https://youtu.be/bnf2651CpCo

Excerpt of a found footage remix performed while I was at home recovering from a bout of the flu.  The illness no doubt informed my choice of source material during the improvised session which plays like a fragmented nightmare of someone at death’s door (not to sound melodramatic or anything).  Video produced with VDMX routed through Lumen and back into VDMX again in real time while the original soundtrack elements were made with a Roland GR-55 guitar synthesizer recorded during a subsequent session.

“Borderline” featured in episode 34-2 of “Here Comes Everybody”

My video is located about 12 minutes into the episode and many thanks again to Will Erokan for putting this together.
