Doming Along

Doming Along

It’s a good time for me to do a quick technical update on the dome build, now that I have some (temporary) space to fully setup and test the structure. Finally, I’ve been able to layout all 15 lighting heads (RGB par 36’s) and connect them […]

Keeping Up With the Joneses (2012)

Keeping Up With the Joneses (2012)

It’s been a while since I created anything tangible, so I was chuffed that the HAHA Industries guys asked me to come up with some visuals for their D&D’s Beat Ballroom night at the Sydney Fringe Festival this month. Given creative freedom, I thought it […]

Some exciting news for those that came along to Share last year (and those that weren’t able to be there!): Share Sydney will be back in 2012, as an ongoing regular event at Serial Space in Chippendale. Starting in March, Share Sydney will be held […]

SHARE Sydney – July 2011

SHARE Sydney – July 2011

I’ll keep this brief, because I feel as though I’ve gone well and truly into marketing mode and the Bill Hicks in me is starting to unleash some self-loathing. In spite of that, I would like to cordially invite you to our first effort at […]

twitterSpeak

%CODE1% I certainly don’t have an abundance of time on my hands, so exactly why I’m creating seemingly pointless MaxForLive devices is a mystery. Though maybe not entirely: I actually really enjoy playing around in Max. There’s an immediacy that you can’t get from compiled […]

Underlapper – Softly Harboured Artwork

Underlapper – Softly Harboured Artwork

Underlapper‘s latest album, Softly Harboured was released this week and I was lucky enough to be asked to do the artwork for physical CD release. It was a lesson in quick turnaround though, as both myself and the band were under pressure to get this […]

Dusk – Quad Panner

Dusk – Quad Panner

Whilst not true ‘surround sound’, the audio for Dusk will be presented through 4 speakers, placed around the installation. One of the goals of Dusk is to create a level of immersion for the viewer, to try and surround them with sound and vision. To build […]

The Finders Keepers – May 2010

The Finders Keepers – May 2010

We’ve just packed up the Autumn/Winter Finders Keepers markets, which were met with ever-growing success. I’ve been organising and running the music stage for a couple of years now, and with the assistance of some wonderful artists and amazing stage design by Michelle McCosker and […]

Gentleforce – Sacred Spaces

Gentleforce – Sacred Spaces

Just a brief bit of news/promo for fellow angryPixellier, Gentleforce… Eli’s debut album gets its official release today, through independent Sydney label, Feral Media. I’ve had the pleasure of hearing most of it already, but now it’s had the mastering treatment, the subtle sounds really […]

UK Bass Special

UK Bass Special

Officially, I don’t DJ these days. However, in one of my weaker moments, I agreed to play at the upcoming VOID night on March 26th. In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple of years, VOID has become the dubstep night […]

Live Visual Experiments #02

Live Visual Experiments #02

Just a quick update to the Live 2 Processing work… %CODE1% …the main goal here was to get Processing to send messages back to Ableton Live. These come in the form of OSC signals, which bang out MIDI notes that I’ve assigned in the Max […]

Live Visual Experiments #01

Drunken Thought For The Night: What’s Wrong With Bass Guitarists?

Drunken Thought For The Night: What’s Wrong With Bass Guitarists?

I just arrived home from stopping by the local to check out a (friend of a) friends’ band. They weren’t bad, but we did find ourselves making note of the bass guitarists dance moves – something akin to a chicken, pecking at seed. Which started […]

Max for Live, or How To Make Music Nerds Lose Their Minds

Max for Live, or How To Make Music Nerds Lose Their Minds

To say there is a lot of buzz around the launch of Max for Live is something of an understatement. It’s done nothing short of send Live-loving music geeks into a frenzy around the potential for new ways of processing audio and connecting technologies. This […]

Sound Media 2 – Week 12

Sound Media 2 – Week 12

Process Moving toward the final sound piece for this project was a case of refining what was already present and intertwining it within the performers’ movements. The bulk of the composition actually changed very little since Week 06, mainly because we needed to continue working […]

Sound Media 2 – Week 08

Sound Media 2 – Week 08

Process This was around the time that the performance project began to become intensely reliant on technology. Of course, this was always going to be a process of seeing where I could take the instruments I was already familiar with, but these computer-based elements were […]

Void Mix – March 08

Void Mix – March 08

Seeing as you all snapped up the Mixed Peas mix like nothing else, I thought I’d put up another old one for y’all: my set from Void in March, 2008. It was a grime special and whilst the mixing isn’t top shelf, it’s probably one […]
