Sound Experiments

There is a connection between sound and visual information that is interesting to me. I enjoy recording and finding out the visual information contained in the composition. It's not exactly synesthesia, but probably sits right next to synesthesia at the dinner table.

  • Electric Cow Head

    June, 2024.

    I worked this up on a Sunday, and played all the parts. My old man used to say "Jimmy, if you don't have anyone to play with, then play with yourself."
    And that's just what I did!

  • S.Ex. no. 23, Indie Bookstore Day

    April, 2024.

    My wife and I walked through two of our favorite independent bookstores on Saturday the 27th - Independent Bookstore Day. I used a 3D scanning app on my phone to make the video. The music is an Ibanez Artcore Hollowbody electric guitar run through an Electoharmonix 22500 looper pedal directly into Logic Pro.

  • S.Ex. no. 22, Theatre of Youth

    April, 2024.

    I made this using an upright bass by Ibanez. The pedals used were the Boss Hamonist, Old Blood Noise Endeavors' Visitor, Red Panda's Tensor, and Lossy, by Chase Bliss Audio. The video is from my phone, film in the theater lobby at Towson University.

  • S.Ex. no. 21 (longer), In these Rooms

    March, 2024.

    I played some tonal stuff, and then put the guitar down. The pedals build their own loops and micro loops. It went on for about 13 minutes, gradually distorting and shifting.

    This is the longer edit, featuring:

    @mtl.asm count to five, @redpandalab tensor & particle, @chasebliss mood & habit, @bossfx_us @bossinfoglobal DD-8 & Space Echo.

    The video is from my phone.
