I am working on something pretty exciting, can’t say much until its finished but it involves circuit boards, a lot of electronics, some computer programmers – anyway here we go:

While I was reading up on this stuff, my mate Biffa told me to check out Trimpin – totally amazing work indeed, google his stuff and in the meantime here’s one of his works:

 

 

While we are at it, you should probably check out Tristram Carey, one of the original hackers some say.  If you have anything mega worth reading up, let me know!

I have just written a track for a great time lapse project that has been a labour of love for photographers Daniel Alexander and Patrick Dalton for many months.  The musical brief was gabba/grindcore but I figured it might be better to write something simple and relaxing to slow down the footage – I went with tape delayed pianos and washed out guitars.

The following info is ripped from their site:

1DAY6CITIES is a global photography project that took place on the 11th November 2011 – 11.11.11, in London, Dubai, Shanghai, Auckland, San Francisco and São Paulo. Using word of mouth, email and social networks we put together an international team of photographers to create a unique twenty-four hour snapshot of this day across six very different cities around the globe. At exactly 00.00 Coordinated Universal Time (world time/GMT) photographers in each of these cities captured their first image in an event that saw photographs being taken every 30 seconds for the following 24 hours. The brief was for the photographers to shoot the most interesting thing happening in their city, at the time they had chosen to shoot. The cities were chosen because they are roughly an equal time difference apart meaning the films show the sun travelling around the earth through the course of the day.

Daniel and Patrick are showing sequences of photos and also the film in various exhibitions around the world, starting with one running currently in Auckland… check the site here, particularly for the image sequences page which is awesome… and have a look at the film to hear my small contribution too:

Just seen this video directed by Us (Academy Films) for a tasty Benga tune and think it’s pretty special – a simple idea but a fresh one I reckon… anyway I am gonna find the whole track and stick it on my ipod for the journey home!

Turn off if you aren’t a tech head, I am just pointing anyone interested at this great blog – I must confess I check it most days.  It’s not just about Pro Tools, it’s mainly a great resource for hearing about new plugins and the like…
