I’ve taken down the toxicdwarf.net homepage and if possible will remap the domain to here until I can rebuild the site. It needs a lot of work doing to it (lots of dead links, reformat the art gallery etc) and i’m not exactly great with html. Alongside that I have a new sound cloud account alongside my older one so many of the links to my tunes on this site are now also dead as I’ve reorganised stuff. I have replaced as many embedded players as possible, but not all tracks are available just yet. I have however put all the tracks into a single playlist so that I can add a player here and update it more easily. I’ll be paying more attention to this blog in the coming months and it should get a bit tidier and i’ll clean out a lot of the posts made for my uni course which are no longer needed. I’ll make the post with sound cloud player a sticky so it’s easy to find, some more posts to come soon regarding my graphic work too, hopefully set up a nice gallery of my artwork here at wordpress. Anyway I hope you like the sights and sounds here and maybe feel inspired to get creative (either through seeing something you like or seeing something that you hate – either way if it inspires you to create then that’s great!)
I know this is completely and utterly not Creative Music Tech related in any way, but i was amazed at what this guy can do. You’ve seen the street running videos but this is so much more. Check it out. (And i do really like the music he picks for his videos although it could be better quality). Maybe i could use these videos and try and write a new soundtrack for them.
Personally i think his 07 showcase was better
I know this isn’t exactly related to Creative Music Technology, but i think it’s cool enough to be on my blog.
While working ‘Warning’ (drum and bass club) i noticed the process of ‘Cymatics’ at work. Cymatics is the study of visible soud and vibrations. I managed to get a video (albeit rather low quality), of the drip tray under our beer pumps, reacting to the sub-bass frequencies. It may not be completely clear but certain frequencies caused the surface of the water to ripple in a set of almost perfect squares. Other shapes and configurations can appear relative to differing frequencies and amplitude.
Here is a better video describing and demonstrating Cymatics
