Here's another animated bumper we made for 808 day in celebration of the timeless Roland drum machine of the same name.

Here's another short piece from our up coming Audible Objects Symbols A/V project featuring new music from Huemon Contact, Smog Monster and L.A.S.L.
We're back in the lab working on some new audio / visual projects.
This is a sneak peek at one of the Mythical Instruments we made for an up coming animated short.
Instrument: The Frequanatron: 9 drum pads, a metallic touch controller, 8 assignable pots and a magnetic patch matrix.
Materials: Onyx, Ruby, Emrald and a blend of 7 metals
West Kept Secrets Vol.1 is a collection of live improvised modular synth compositions inspired by the west coast synthesis perspective explored by composers like Morton Subotnick, Don Buchla, Charles Cohen and Todd Barton. Even though the compositions are influenced by the aforementioned composers, I embark on a sonic journey adding my own experiences and influences to this creative school of thought.
This project is made with Native Instruments Reaktor6 Blocks software and an analog modular synthesizer.
Each ensemble includes all the snapshots that were saved as I performed the patch plus a lot of snapshots not recorded on the project for you to explore.

Here's another audio/visual piece by Shiro Fujioka. The visuals were inspired by modular synth patch cables, portals and inter dimensional travel.

This is an audio reactive animated piece I created to paint a vivid picture of my relationship to sound, form and motion.
Each geometric shape visually reacts to the vast array of frequencies generated by my analog modular synthesizer and Elektron Machinedrum. Sound and vibration are the primordial building blocks of the universe, so with that in mind I explore designing sound from the basic analog waveforms generated by the synthesizer, i.e.: sine, triangle, saw and square waveforms. Then I construct an improvised composition recorded live in one take. The next part of the process is interpreting the music with form, color and movement. I start by designing the structures I imagine while I’m composing music, once the structure and geometry is built, I breathe live into it with the sounds from my modular synth. Some frequencies build shapes while other deconstruct them in the age old process of build and destroy. This is one of the many ways I approach urban meditation. Similar to how the Yogis of India count mantras on a mala with108 beads to focus the mind on spiritual matters, I approach my art from that same perspective. As an example… music is measured in beats per minute, I approach that as a rhythmic meditation. Shapes are associated with different elements keeping the focus on the visual building blocks of nature. Movement is driven by unseen forces like gravity, wind and resistance. Color is a very high frequency and can be used to stimulate different parts of the mind and stimulate the chakras.
Just as the universe creates waves of vibration going through the transformation of the audible becoming visual, I follow that divine path of the fractal nature of our existence… As above, so below.
