On Your Bike - 040911

On Your Bike
Classic, cult and family screenings in the Waterfront Studio and the Belfast Barge
All film screenings are free.
A limited number of tickets for these free screenings will be available on the door.

Brought to you by the QFT and Belfast Film Festival

On Your Bike
I like the expression when used informally - as with other old expressions there are a few different stories on the origin.

On Your Bike
There will be a lot of bike related fun to be had as part of the event.
Along with Chris Allen and Peter Cullen, I'll be playing a live soundtrack to 'The Wheels of Chance', a silent, black and white film from 1922.

The film will be shown on Sunday 4th September 2011 at 18.00 in the Waterfront Studio. More info to follow...

I've started work with a percussionist.

We're using some DIY electronics.

I made a few contact mics which I attached to the jaws of plastic clamps with hot glue. I coated the piezo circuit in Plasti-Dip and glued a little foam to the other side of the jaw.

They're surprisingly responsive.

Le Bonheur 04

This is a track that was made to be remixed and used as the backing for improvisation as part of a live performance score to the film 'le bonheur'. The film has six parts with many mini movements in each.

Video Bending VEC1070 - Youtube

Here's a short compilation of me playing with the VEC1070. It was made very quickly using my phone camera to capture + Pr to edit. I didn't prepare for the shoot, so you can see reflections from my living room.

The sound isn't live, it was added in Premiere before uploading; it's a solo noise jam from a few months ago using a feedback loop and some fuzz devices.
