Woodworkings

Here then some Standard 8 footage shot circa 1990 mixed with a soundtrack by Storm Bugs from 1980. Both involved blind overlaying. In the case of the film passing the same footage through the camera two or three times and with the sound using a loop cassette to record on and then disconnecting the erase head and letting it pass round and round; overdubbing on more sounds.

A funny thing...

When I woke up this morning at 5AM these lines popped into me head...

I have know you and loved you so long that
I no longer know where I end and you begin
said the romantic poet to his wife of many a year
She smiled sweetly both at his presumption
and for a moment seeing herself in the arms of Clarice Duff
the landlord’s daughter

No Particular Place to Go (Ring Mod Remix)

Today a ring modulation remix of the video No Particular Place to Go made using photographs of fly-tips from the Geograph British Isles website. Each photo was scanned to produce a musical note; putting the images together a musical sequence emerged; a pastoral accompaniment to the images. Geograph British Isles is a project that aims to collect photographs of every grid square of the British Isles. The photos which were originally uploaded by numerous different people from all over the UK were produced under a under a creative commons licence as is the video. No Particular Place to Go was originally shown as an installation at the Memorial Gallery in Hastings in 2009.
