Via womblife: "Further to Trish Keenan's passing: a friend of Joe Muggs has passed this on so I'm spreading the word -- quoting his friend: "Before she went to Australia Trish sent me a mix CD of bonkers pop music she compiled, I never thanked her. Its called Mind Bending Motorway Mix and I want to share it with you, please pass the link on, share it far and wide...'"

This is an untimely tragic loss and we will miss Trish dearly - a unique voice, an extraordinary talent and a beautiful human being. Rest in Peace.

37 Synthesized Patterns (2010)

2010-10-15T07:19:47.497-07:00

"A demonstration of the LZX Visionary modular video synthesizer used for direct synthesis techniques, meaning that no external image was used in the creation of these clips -- with the exception of a couple, which use a feedback camera to introduce extra modulation. Modules used include the basic system of 8 modules, including three Video Waveform Generator signal sources. A variety of techniques are used including oscillator frequency and waveshape modulation, keying, voltage controlled mixing, signal summing and absolute mode summing. No post-processing or manipulation has been added. Audio from the track Omniverse by S U R V I V E."



SOLAR CAROUSEL (2010)

"Reimagined moments from Logan's Run (1976) by filmmaker and electronics designer Lars Larsen. This experiment uses an adaptation of the Function Generator circuit from the Sandin Image Processor, and the LZX Visionary modular video synthesizer to add additional keying and blending. Audio is processed through a Cat Girl Synth Wave Multiplier module, which is a similar circuit to the Sandin Image Processor's Function Generator. So in effect, similar processing techniques are implemented simultaneously to both video and audio, which are controlled by a single CV source."

"An interest in the possibilities of a filmic encyclopedia to rival the Whole Earth Catalogues of the early seventies and a delight in the manufacture of lists for their own sake were the ideas initially responsible for various projects that coalesced into The Falls. If an ambitious filmic encyclopedia of the World threatened to make the World redundant, and if the items in the lists were essentially unclassifiable, then so much the better."

"Chain of Hyper Space scenes from films (a collaboration with Mike Merrill).

Part of the thing which is so appealing about Hyper Space scenes in films is the idea that something fantastic and unknown lies at the end of them. In fact, here are the primary uses of Warp Speed/ Hyper Space as plot device:
A) Tunnel to unknown.
B) Escape from danger via total oblivion.

Both represent a kind of inversion, or temporary lifting, of the accepted order."
