From the Ashes

Since the Summer Show ended and my College dayz is all but over, I've been working on Architectural projects. The theme seems to have been a common thread throughout my work over the last 5 years. Combining this investigation with my photo-montage/collage/assemblage techniques and working with both stills and video I'm putting together a new series titled 'Other Worlds'. The project also underscores a new and liberated chapter of work with more of a focus on technique and production values.

What happened to theTime?

One minute I am here on this blog trying to document my progression when Wham! time hit the speed of light and I was mysteriously catapulted weeks into the future!! This means that all my notes and observations are embedded in a secret place and locked away with 'Time itself, sigh.
The good news is that I finished the video piece and it is now showing at the Summer Show. So for anyone who happens along this blog at any time and actually gets as far as reading any of this, you've stumbled a link to the Final Piece 'Stairway to Babel'

The debate about New-Media Art roars on, what is it and where does it fit into the contemporary art market?
I've found a few interesting discussions and papers on the subject, here are a few:

Writing a soundtrack

With only 6 days to go until assessment or should I say judgement day and having clipped together 2 seperate video edits, one in After Effects, the other in Premiere Pro I have moved on to look at the overall soundtrack which I will be creating myself.
I've already made a series of loops using programmes such as FL studio 10 and a basic track in Garage band although I may not use either.
FL studio 10 is a create composer and can pretty much do everything you want. Tricky part is bringing it all together into a soundtrack that fits the film. As I'm working on my own with this it's nearly all being done from memory composition with a few tweaks in Encore at the finish.

Rendering some ideas

It's render time for a preview then back to Premier Pro for a bit of tidy up..
