My latest video in the “Into Abstraction” series, infuses elements of surrealism and is a remix of several images from previous series. The piece also continues the evolving elements of recent images and the examination of memory attachments and the evolution of ambiguity in the psyche. The central theme is dreams; their possessive sensitivity, longing, and their magic and lost. Musically, I have moved away from the “glitch” forms of previous soundtracks in the series, and focused on a more ambient “drone” sound. Again, the complexity of sound is balanced and created with small nuances of processing. Most notably the use of various resonance and pitch, filters, reverb, and overall tonal control.

    • Yeah Sedge, FAX was the bomb. Pete Namlook will always be remembered for all the great artists he brought to the label. Some of my favorite cds on the label were Dr. Atmo’s Sadworld, and Pete Namlook’s Silence and Air to name a couple. And thanks for checking out my video.
