Sound and Vision: The A/V project.

This page is to display my sonic experiments and their accompanying videos; made using the Oscilab loop maker, Poweramp music player, InShot video editor, Korg Kaosillator and the edjing mixing app, along with various other gadgets on my phone.

Technology has come a long way since the tinny, toy-like sounds of electronic keyboards and the squawking of the dreaded Stylophones we had when we were kids, meaning the quality of sound it is now possible to achieve with just one small device is extraordinary.

It also means that a complete novice with no musical skill like myself, (with a lot of practice and fair amount of patience) can finally emulate some of the amazing sounds and intricate rhythms that I’ve been listening to all these years.

Most of the pieces I create are influenced by the chugging, repetitive beats of Krautrock and a love of ’80s and ’90s electronic music’s strange bleeping and squelching noises, but there are a mixture of styles to explore, more of which you can find on my BandCamp page at this link, all of which are free to download.

So turn on, tune in and chill out (or freak out) to my audio visual gallery; you never know, you might like it…

Oscilab

Thudd – Aptly named; noisy at the start, a driving beat and frenetic rhythms, with wild but hypnotic visuals to match.

The Glimmering – Chilled and melodic, with a smoothly flowing video that resembles swirling smoke.

Phobos-1 – An extended rhythmic jam, with visuals that are vaguely reminiscent of the opening credits of Dr Who.

Phobos-2-1 – Originally intended as a remix, this second version evolved its own identity and has a completely different look, too, using a psychedelic flower motif to create perfectly synchronised patterns.

Syklik – A solid bass thump and a lot of phased bleepery make for an upbeat mix of electro loops and beats.

Here is “Antenna”, by Kraftwerk from Radio Activity, spliced with a sample of “Pocket Calculator”, from the career-defining Computer World album.

It’s called, rather predictably, “Pocket Antenna”.

For another of my many Kraftwerk-based homages, here’s a remix of “Numbers”, with an added sample from a track called “Control” by Operators, accompanied by another of my psychedelic videos.

You’ll never guess what it’s called; “Number Control”.

You get the idea; I like to take tunes that probably shouldn’t go together and, well, making them go together, whether they like it or not.

For the rest, all the details you need for the following examples of my cacophonic creations are in the YouTube descriptions…
