It Is What It Is (Praise the Lord and Pass the Clorox)

Unedited video synth jam utilizing Lumen remixed live via VDMX against samples recorded during the same session to create a gradually compounding composition.  The soundtrack consists of a percussive guitar synthesizer noise improvisation with slowed-down government news conference and church samples that snarl like a menacing mephistopheles encouraging people to eschew public health guidance and common sense in the midst of a pandemic.

Throughput

360 Version – https://youtu.be/X4enmGDZDbs 

Abstract piece in which an audio-reactive video signal weaves through other overlapping patterns to form a synthesized audio/visual tapestry.  Produced using a LZX Vidiot and Lumen remixed in VDMX and edited in Adobe Premiere. Soundtrack produced with a Roland GR-55 guitar synthesizer.

Fever Dream (In Flew Enza)

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.
