Dusting off and charging up all of my tiny camera equipment for some a/v experimentation during whatever bits of free time I’m able to squeeze out of my busy schedule. No real grandiose plans for these gadgets… My initial plan was to take a couple of videos of me adding musical accompaniment to some of my favorite music. I guess it would be a remix of sorts. I’m just going to make it up as I go along. I’m mainly doing this so that I can incorporate more audio/visual stuff back into my life. I’ve not had the time to do as many production experiments as I’d have liked to these past few years. My schedule has just been extremely full with the day-to-day operations of starting the coffee shop. However, as I manage to incorporate a bit more regularity and sanity into my life, I am hoping to make more time for little experiments and projects again. Oh, and with any luck, I might create something worth sharing. We’ll see what happens. I’m a bit out of practice.
My buddy, Sam, from Grad School turned me on to this video from WIRED.COM about a guy that created a symphony using computer parts and vintage/old video game consoles and computer parts. The composer’s name is James Houston. The piece demands respect but the song is mediocre at best. That said, I think his geek factor makes up for whatever the song lacks.
I finish my first year of teaching a college-level introductory audio course at the end of this month and now I have this strange urge to add some educational type videos to my studio’s youtube page. Here’s to hoping I don’t come off looking/sounding like a doofus.
Mikey Mason’s music video for his new single “My Next Girlfriend” has been uploaded to youtube. A number of scenes for this video were shot at my recording studio. Check it out.
I was going through my phone and realized that I took a video of the Woodlands session. Just thought I’d share it with everyone.
