Get Strange Records 001 - dust and shadows by prettyhowtown

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.

PAQ "AIRMALTA" music video by Robotboot

PAQ "AIRMALTA"

PAQ(based out of Rimini, Italy) asked me to make a music video featuring found footage based on the idea of taking a trip to his song Airmalta. We chatted and came up with the idea based on found footage from the 70’s of commercial airline promotional footage and footage generated to look like a sunset over the ocean. The music is very chill and meditative wile keeping a good head nodding vibe to keep you entertained.

Liquid Light Lab x Robotboot - Live Liquid Light Show

Liquid Light Lab

Liquid Light Lab created a liquid light show live via a livestream to some of my more abstract minimal tracks.

Liquid light shows

Liquid light shows (or psychedelic light shows) are a form of light art that surfaced in the early 1960s as accompaniment to electronic music and avant-garde theatre performances. They were later adapted for performances of rock or psychedelic music.

:)

I could not be more happy as a musician having my music selected to carry on the tradition of liquid light shows in its new place of old technologies bonded with new technologies. It is very fascinating and mirrors the music so well. It is very meditative and relaxing and not in your face crazy…gives you that time to lit your brain turn of and do its own thing. Liquid Light Lab has an expressive set up that you can see in the recorded livestream.

The weekend was lit. Tomorrow is Monday. Wind down and chillax before doing it all again. Live experimental video performance, streamed right to you. Featuring the music of Robotboot.

Spool’s Out Radio #152: Late-Year Cul-De-Sac

I was very lucky to be included on Spool’s Out Radio’s 152nd podcast. A Cassette-based radio show on Resonance 104.4FM, presented by Tristan Bath in association with The Quietus out of London, United Kingdom. The podcast features other electronic musicians that are releasing there music on cassette. I know a lot of people say why release a cassette and there is a plethora of answers. Options for releasing music are Vinyl, CD, Digital, and Cassette. In this day and age computer don’t have CD players anymore and most people have previously tossed there cd players and ether never had or tossed their record players slash cassette decks. I mean we are getting to the point where some people haven't ever listed to music on a home speaker system. So when it come time to release music now no one wants a CD it just adds to the garage and people don’t want to have to rip the cd to listen to it on the computer or even have a cd drive to do that. Releasing digital is a no brainer and a bit lack lustered slash hard to get noticed with all the other noise in the digital domain. Algorithms don’t want to find new music they just want to make money for the compony who made the algorithm, much less do you really want all of your music taste to be defined by a computer and an algorithm that has alternative means. Computers cant truly pick random numbers or shuffle you music library randomly it cant just pick the music you're going to like. Vinyl is a great option, people probable have a record player and don’t have a CD player or a cassette player. Vinyl is the most expensive investment form an independent artist. You're looking at $1,500 investment for 250 records, plus the cost of making the music and mastering it. Cassettes on the other hand can be made DIY at any number or at lo runs of just 25 making it a go to option for a physical release. Problem is most people have tossed their cassette decks. But with music trends and cassette decks being the best $ option for an independent artist slash small music label to get there music out it is on the rise. Did I answer a question? Did I know what I was going to write before I did this? I don’t have those answers. Im not much of a word person so listen to the podcast because thats why you came here. Thanks have a great day.

From Spool's Out

“2018 won’t let up. The postman keeps piling cassettes through the letterbox. The binman keeps stamping piles of cardboard packaging into piles of recycled matter. The ideas keep flowing, and the buzz of the hive mind still makes little sense. Aptly, this week’s selection of tapes blends freak out noise and weirdo pop with conceptual art and bacchanal beats. Happy Movember tapeheadz.
