Genre, says

is dead.

But, this may be "coco-ice tip-top" for beach cruising, a work in progress

Somebody To Love 

This piece began as what I took to be "a laid back elevator music version of Somebody to Love" the song written by Darby Slick, former bro-in-law of Grace Slick,  "first recorded by the 60's rock n roll band The Great Society" and Jefferson Airplane performed and recorded it later, and transformed it.  "Rolling Stone magazine ranked Jefferson Airplane's version No. 274 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time."(wikipedia)


Yet, I didn't finish my arrangement by the deadline (Taxi A&R), and then made it not so laid back. I added some sort of grating elements imo, the vocals have always seemed to me to be glass-shatteringly intense and riveting and the lyrics both captivating and baffling. So I  beefed up to my hearts delight:) You gotta do what you gotta do...

about “inside the box”

• May 18th, 2015


the figures of a man and woman walking that reappear were created by rotoscoping archival film, frame by frame in photoshop. the cube is made by sandwiching sets of layers, the same of the pictures on the wall. the figures moving in space inside and outside the box were done both rotoscoping -the crowd- and hand-drawn characters -the mouse- like golden winged creature(called a Mologicus with Clout) following.

the sound idea started using a series of tunes carefully shaped, but i'd been experimenting with color to sound and making color scores, translating the pixels of varying color to a set sound, then tailoring it to get the one used here. the soundtrack from the original score that I'd trashed - some pieces were needed for the sync part, but then i changed that too - finally, a melodic score was stretched in a filter process and added over, in building a story.

sketches—video cube unit

• March 6th, 2014


it's not a fish tank, though that's not a bad idea, it could also be a planter with one side removed.
Bulgari has made an advertising holo-cube but it looks like a transparent computer screen embedded in a thick frame.

This one
 is more interesting.
it should be small enough in stature for most people to look down on. it is for looking down at while standing or moving around it, or for sitting on the floor and looking directly at. the sketch of the round-shaped "table" can be adapted to rectangle/square. the electronics would be invisible—built into the base and casements. it would support wireless transmission as well as a rechargeable battery with a 730 hour life capacity per charge (it can be played for a couple of hours every day for a year on one charge). i don't yet know if such a thing exists...but it probably does and ideas evolve. ideally there should be no visible cord connection, a complete standalone. i would like transparent lcd capabilities on all 6 sides of the cube as well as the 3D projection "inside" the cube space.
it also is shown as hanging from the ceiling, suspended. more on that later.(as these sketches suggest an asymmetric balance, maybe interesting, maybe not at this point.)
i mean it to be made of the type of screen that displays transparent graphics, part of the idea is to "blur the line between function and design", i.e. to create a visual display that has texture and color like a painting and has a more "organic" look—sort of taking two opposing tendencies and blending them. another part is to provide a new kind of visual experience, a "painterly holographic animation" in a really slick techno design electro-sculpture—these are some quick sketches.
