CME MDCCCLIX

https://www.mikecelona.net – Abstract video synthesizer remix experiment whose aurora-like images and analog video glitch distortions reminded me of the Carrington Event of 1859 in which a powerful CME (Coronal Mass Ejection) hit the Earth’s atmosphere resulting in the largest geomagnetic storm on record that disrupted nearly every telegraph line in the world–pretty much the extent of our global electronic infrastructure at the time.  Despite a number of close calls since then, it has been estimated that a comparable event today would do an estimated $0.6-2.6 trillion worth of damage to the U.S. alone.  Video produced using Lumen remixed live via VDMX and an analog Videffektor.  Soundtrack produced with a Roland GR-55 guitar synthesizer edited and mixed in Adobe Premiere.

Decay Dance

Abstract video synth composition consisting primarily of analog signal distortions from a CHA/V mixed with a LZX Vidiot and Lumen via VDMX and then processed again through a Videffektor.  The various elements were then edited and slowed down in Adobe Premiere in order to present the distortions at a less frenetic pace.  The soundtrack is a multi-layered noise loop composition produced with an electric guitar and an old Tascam 4-track cassette recorder.

Icarus–Into The Drink

Video synthesizer, found footage and noise composition inspired by the old axiom that what goes up, must come down. Produced using a LZX vidiot, Lumen and VDMX with the resulting footage edited in Adobe Premiere. The soundtrack consists of a heavily processed acoustic guitar mixed with various found sounds.

Borderline

An abstract video piece celebrating freedom of movement and the tenacity of the elements breaching artificial obstructions placed in their path.  Produced using Lumen and a LZX Vidiot remixed in real time with VJ software and then edited in Adobe Premiere. The soundtrack was produced using a Roland GR-55 guitar synthesizer along with ambient audio recorded in my backyard.
