The BPMC Touch CV has an amazing knack for venturing outside of the realm of conventional video fx processing into a unique mode of pure visual synthesis loosely based on your source input’s color information. These stills were extracted from a larger video capture I’ll toss up on the Glitch Art Dot Com Vimeo shortly. They were achieved by patching a modular function generator into the CV input section of the Touch and honing in on an interesting combination of glitch grid sizing. The source input was the vibrant high-saturation video for Tame Impala’s “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards.” Man, great album! Lonerisms was easily my favorite album of the last five years. The Touch CV/AVE3 reminds me in spirit of the Folktek Time Machine. The Time Machine is an incredible chaos-audio loop-quantization device with powerful instant remix capabilities. You almost feel guilty working with these machines because it is so easy to create jaw-dropping results.
In the lead up to Sisters, a collaborative multimedia album from Odd Nosdam & Big Pauper, we are posting production stills from each track. First up we have “Ten Echoes.” The video production heavily relies on the Fritz Decontroller, the Fluxus glitch video FX processor & found footage.
Sisters is available this summer from Leaving Records/Stones Throw on vinyl, cassette, digital & VHS.
