On Standby

The front doors have been closed on and for about a month now. I will explain what’s being going on, soon here.

Might as well leave this here for reference. So now that I have things set up here properly again I plan to blog more often. It may be just a video share with some observation on it or it may be a more in depth post examining the development in our networked world. There have been many thing I have wanted to blog about over the past few months but I felt I was in danger of getting to personal with some topics. Such topics deserve a wider space of their own where discussion is encouraged more.

For the past few months I have been experimenting with the Elgg platform to build the network needed for the progression of the ITISON idea. Of all the tools I have used to attempt make this happen, Elgg has been the best. Although it is not without it’s cons most of what is not working is down to my own lack of experience in coding. This is a good thing, for I cannot see it’s limits.

I will post a proper post on Elgg soon after version 1.7 comes out.

In the meantime you can check out and join in one of the beta sites here….

RemixTV (2004)

This is an experimental videomix I made back in 2004. It is about 1 hour and 10 minutes in duration, broken up here into 8 parts to fulfill youtube limits.

The video was made by feeding live television into Arkaos VJ software and also through an Edirol V4 video mixer. Then I went about channel hopping while mixing some music with the audio from the television coming in occasionally.

Some of this is good, some of this is bad. I had planned to edit this down to a “best of” 20 minute or so mix, but that is a task for another day and would detract for the idea of a live remix somewhat. The audio levels fluctuate a bit as the ads are always louder and so is not very professional in that regard. However, it works ok.

I have done this type of thing many times but this was stored on a drive for over 5 years
and so i decided to put it out there.

So, it’s old, it’s a bit messy but it is what it is. television reprocessed with music.

watch all 8 parts on YouTube .
