July 28th, 2012, 20th annual Clinton St. Fair
Had a complete blast in the sun this past weekend, setting up the rig and on the boards for:
July 14th 2012, Mississippi St Fair
Engineered the Parlour Stage. A laid back folk stage closing with a serious ol'school funk/jazz group called the Neighbors.

The intense 1Fest has concluded. And..after 9 days straight in the booth, with a few days of pre-curtain tech, I can say, this has been one of the best sound designing experiences in quite some time. A magnificent effort from the Headwaters core crew -Mizu Desierto and Jacob, and the supporting cast of volunteers/performers.
I shared the booth with the festivals lighting designer for the 2nd year, Taiga Christie, what a powerhouse! We connected instantly and seamless, making for a smooth operation. I look forward to working with her, on any show, in the future.

Second in a series of experiments with audio-responsive visual effects -CircAria No.2.
The sounds are an excerpt from an Ableton set I'm working on, triggering all the visual effects within Resolume, and the graphic is a flash file downloaded from TriggerMotion.com, a place for open-source visuals.
Having fun learning how to trigger real-time visual effects with my tracks. This is my first attempt:
I recorded the spectral/frequency of my track analysis output in ixiQuarks, via screenflow, popped that video into resolume with my track and effected the h*ll out of it. Enjoy.
The sounds are all from a free Ableton Live rack from http://AfroDJMac.com called Unusual Percussion.

Made for the exhibition Invisible Fields at Arts Santa Monica in Barcelona Spain.
20 Hz observes a geo-magnetic storm occurring in the Earth's upper atmosphere. Working with data collected from the CARISMA radio array and interpreted as audio, we hear tweeting and rumbles caused by incoming solar wind, captured at the frequency of 20 Hertz. Generated directly by the sound, tangible and sculptural forms emerge suggestive of scientific visualisations. As different frequencies interact both visually and aurally, complex patterns emerge to create interference phenomena that probe the limits of our perception.

Black Rain is sourced from images collected by the twin satellite, solar mission, STEREO. Here we see the HI (Heliospheric Imager) visual data as it tracks interplanetary space for solar wind and CME's (coronal mass ejections) heading towards Earth. Data courtesy of courtesy of the Heliospheric Imager on the NASA STEREO mission.
Working with STEREO scientists, Semiconductor collected all the HI image data to date, revealing the journey of the satellites from their initial orientation, to their current tracing of the Earth’s orbit around the Sun. Solar wind, CME's, passing planets and comets orbiting the sun can be seen as background stars and the milky way pass by.
As in Semiconductors previous work 'Brilliant Noise' which looked into the sun, they work with raw scientific satellite data which has not yet been cleaned and processed for public consumption. By embracing the artefacts, calibration and phenomena of the capturing process we are reminded of the presence of the human observer who endeavors to extend our perceptions and knowledge through technological innovation.
