Mellotron Recording

Had a great time in the archives of the media museum this morning with Lewis recording and improvising on the Mellotron housed there. According to the records accompanying this actual machine was used on soundtracking for Doctor Who episodes at somepoint in its history. Excellent to play a home grown and designed noise machine after our various encounters with Russian ones. Some recordings to follow.

Light and Dark in Motion

As part of thinking and developing one of the elements for our final performance we’ve begun looking at ways in which experimental film makers have used contrasts and tensions between light and dark in there work. We want to begin making some animations to play with our light sensitive oscillators in the next few weeks.

All the works below are posted with original sound tracks, we’ll post some our experiments as we go.

Hans Richter Rhythmus 21

Walther Ruttman Opus 1-4

Len Lye Free Radicals

Stan Brakhage Moth Light

A bit different but another amazing use of light and dark from Michael Vorfeld
