(photo I took somewhere in Loire Valley, France – near the Troglodytes)


Subject: Sunglasses

I think I’ll wait until dusk before I look at the sky again

Although I worry that my sunglasses think they no longer have a purpose

What they don’t know is that they are not redundant just yet

If the roof falls in, or gets blown away on a sunny day I may find I need them

I think I saw them moving this morning.

Now, a PEN MASH;

All sounds in the video are directly sourced from what you see on screen.  Here, I wanted to explore the creation of sound to reveal what one can do using, subjectively, mundane sources, namely just a pen and my fingers.  A simple idea, yet accomplished by manoeuvring the pen and my fingers to create bass and synth sounds, then time stretching the sounds in loops and distorting the pen and fingers hits.

        Welcome 🙂

  4. Interesting! Who would have thought?

    1. zoolonaudio says:

      Suppose we all keep losing thoughts. I decided to capture some and imprison them here before they run away

      1. Please keep doing that! I have a couple books where that I’ve used for sneaking up on thoughts and then smashing around them. Granted, they’re a lot gooier on the page, and there’s always a part that still twitches in a zombie state, but I’m hoping I can recreate them on a screen for all posterity….
        sounds rather mad-scientist-eque, don’tcha think? 😛

      2. zoolonaudio says:

        Sounds good. A random artistic plan always the best. To what backing track?

      3. Gosh, I dunno right now…The Bootleggers, or maybe Loreena McKennitt, depending on my mood. You?

        Foster the People, electronic genius.

      5. I’ll have to check those out. 🙂

      6. Frightening!

    This is fabulous!

    1. zoolonaudio says:

      That’s good to hear. Thanks

      1. Heartafire says:

        I am on the list for the first trip to Mars 🏃

      2. zoolonaudio says:

        You can be the pilot

      3. Heartafire says:

        It’s gonna be a bumpy ride 🙂
