Slime Code


Sculpture: Slime Code

Slime Code is an exotic particle soup of pause button tape edits, varispeed action, VU busting tape saturation, freakform noise, grazing tape loop critters, and electronic rhythms.

The music was performed live to 8 track tape by Dan Hayhurst and Reuben Sutherland on 1st July 2011.

7 unique dubs to C20 compact cassette were executed by DH, and a digital edit was compiled from the C20s on August 6th 2011.

The 7 unique C20s and free unlimited digital manifestation will be available through Kaleidoscope from Valentine’s Day.

Shiny Toys

Blinker Device

We use a video camera shooting  25 frames per second at a high shutter speed to make animations using illustrated picture discs, exploiting the same mathematical quirk as a phenakistoscope. We had a go at improvising a simple device to view the animations without a video camera…you’ll need some black cardboard, a sharp knife, a yoghurt pot, a record player and a bright light.

(here’s one we made earlier…)

The design could be ‘finessed’… e.g. we found we could watch the animation happen directly on the surface of the record (rather than by peering through the slots in the cardboard) by pointing the light through the slots at certain angles, suggesting a device incorporating a mirror and a carefully positioned light source could be very effective.
