Closing the circle on the previous post here. Taking the motion blur pictures into the Brushes App on iPad and what can only be loosely described as drawing over the pictures, then exporting the actions from the drawings into .mov files, slowing them down and then splicing them together to make a short animation.
The process is much like that that goes into creating the music. It’s aim and intention is very open. It doesn’t have an end point or desired conclusion. I might make an infinity gif next time and rather than bookending a song with a fadein/out to join them up, work on perpetual repeat. I wonder if theres an app for that?
This is the finished piece.
This is a quick late night post. Warning! It’s terribly rock’n’roll.
In the really quite lovely setting of the 800 year old ecclesiastical establishment, All Hallows‘ Gedling, the respected English guitarist Gordon Giltrap, earlier this evening entertained a full pew set with pieces spanning his career.
I’m not quite sure how I made it there. A friend emailed me the details a while ago and having some vague recollection of the man I said yes. Very pleased I did as well.
He is massively skilled and the playing was beguiling to watch.
Here are a couple of videos of two of the most outstanding pieces, although all of it was fascinating.
This first one is called Dodo’s Dream and uses live played loop effects to brilliant effect….
This one he played as the encore and is really quite stunning…..
And I want one of these……
