Get Strange Records 003 - Glory Beauty Supply by SiP

This is a music video I created by for SiP for his song Glory Beauty Supply released on Get Strange Records based out of Chicago. The video was created with one live take consisting of video i shot in Washington State, video synthesis, video feedback, running audio into the single, and animating this all live by wiggling: nobs, sliders, and T bars.

 

SiP is the working name for musician/producer Jimmy Lacy out of Chicago, USA. SiP's sequencing and music-making highlight the imperfection and earth-bound quality of pieces of hardware and synthesis designed to give otherwise perfect patterns and tones. Anachronistically the electronics create a space more from a folk music background, with folk as music with tradition and with meaning for a community of people. SiP's music looks to create moments of communal space and contemplation as well as participate and contribute to the rich musical community of Chicago.

Glory Beauty Supply by SiP is Get Strange Records third release. Part of the Get Strange Records visual music collection. Please experience the visual music video first for best experience.

Featuring: Gabriel Perez Diaz - Guitar, Carlos Chavarria - Saxophone

Copy of Get Strange Records 002 - Augural by Benjamin Mauch

This is a music video I created by for Benjamin Mauch for his song Augural releases on Get Strange Records based out of Chicago. The video was created with one live take consisting of video synthesis, video feedback, running audio into the single, and animating this all live by wiggling: nobs, sliders, and T bars.

 

“I wanted this piece to be a dramatic rendering of taking flight as a bird and examining my surroundings in whatever cognitive capacity a bird is able to. I have always been fascinated by birds and their unique ability to escape the earth for a time and live among the clouds. An augur was a type of Roman prophet who would be able to examine birds and their flight patterns in order to interpret the will of the gods. I imagined myself as a bird and becoming part of this augural process, not knowing what would be foretold by the prophet, but feeling some innate sense of pleasure knowing that I was a part of something more important than just myself. The track builds slightly in the beginning but rests in the mood that is created, much like a bird would when riding thermals across the sky.” Benjamin Mauch

Benjamin Mauch is a musician and teacher from Richmond, VA. He uses modular synthesizer and tape loops to create slow moving and emotive soundscapes.

Augural by Benjamin Mauch is Get Strange Records second release. Part of the Get Strange Records visual music collection. Please experience the visual music video first for best experience.

Get Strange Records is a Bandcamp label that I started that is focused on electronic music. My goal is to give artists a place to experiment, collaborate, get exposure, and be supported by other like minded artists. I am starting with singles with visual video to accompany the song. A sort of visual music label. The first release is dust and shadows by prettyhowtown. We are excited for you to experience this with us.

dust and shadows by prettyhowtown is Get Strange Records first release. We love this song and think of colors and movement while listening to it. We home you will love it as much as we do.

prettyhowtown is electronic music, performed live on a modular synthesizer and presented without edits or overdubs.

 
 

Rory Khan Mohon “Monochromatic”

This is a music video I created by for Rory Khan Mohon for his song Monochromatic. The visuals for this video where created by using a single photo that April Staso took of Rory. I took the photo and made some new compositions out of it and fed it to my video feedback system. I was happy to listen to this song over and over while each time it sounded a bit better. I think this came out delightfully weird.

Pose by naomi smalls

I produced some visual effects for “Pose” the new music video by Naomi Smalls. I was blown away on how this video looked before before I had a chance to work on it. The video was directed by Todd Diederich who also is the creator of Smalls World(Naomi’s YouTub series) that is also great and a great glimpse into the life of Naomi. The song is head bobbin vibe that you can blast in your cover while cutting threw the fog at night.

Olympic National Park Forest Floor

I went on a magical trip to the Olympic National Park in 2018 from September 21st to October 1st. I took my camera and zoom recorder and managed to grab this video and audio. I then scored a song to a bit of a sped up version of the video. I was taken back by the tall trees and the forest floor with the sun rays coming through. Just an hour before we wear at the destination of out hike Mink Lake and saw a black bear and decided to leave early. Turns out we lucked out and got to enjoy this beautiful view.
