Short film from Ash Thorp, who worked on the visuals of the recent Ghost In The Shell, which has similar themes and is comprised of moody contemplative shots.

Recommended to watch full screen and no distractive lights:

Edifice is an experimental short film inspired by personal beliefs of who we are, where we come from, and where we are heading; it’s a journey from stardust to singularity.  This purely cinematic film is intended to stimulate your mind and senses, while provoking further thought about our passage and presence in this world.

Continuing Universal Everything’s explorations into new forms of audio­visual synaesthetic experience, Universal Everything poses the question: how does it feel to step Inside the Sound?Inside the Sound is the start of an ongoing series of immersive 360º environments that embraces the potential of VR. Each of the six environments takes the form of an infinitely looping audio­visual creation, which visualises the sensations triggered by its sounds, allowing the viewer to explore a multisensory space in ways only achievable in 360º.The soundtracks are composed by long term Universal Everything collaborator Simon Pyke. They each have a sensation of intensifying drama, created using a technique called Shepard tone, an auditory illusion in which sounds appear to continually ascend in pitch.CreditsCreative Director: Matt PykeAnimation Director: Matt FrodshamSound Designer: Simon PykeSenior Producer: Greg Povey

Installation by vtol is a kinetic sculpture of abstract gyroscopic robotics:

Stupa is a robotised audio and kinetic installation that is based on my research (as part of practical art training) on such topics as gravitation, the stability of systems, chaos and self-organisation. The actual object may be described as a composite pendulum, with two main phases – stabilisation and resonance. The object is equipped with several motors ensuring balance/imbalance at several axes, a digital gyroscope/accelerometer and single-channel sound system. In the “stabilisation” phase, the motors use the data from the gyroscope to balance and stop the object, while in the “resonance” phase the data are inverted and compel the object to swing around all the axes. In this case the amplitude constantly rises until it attains peak level. Then the object transitions to the “stabilisation” regime, and as soon as balance is attained – the object again transitions to the phase of mechanical self-oscillation.

In addition, the data from the gyroscope on positions on the axes have a direct impact on the generation of sound, thereby contributing an additional “dimension” to the work, and illustrating the inherent processes. Initially contemplated as a test project for the development of a number of systems and principles, the object was transformed in the end into a standalone work, which resembles more the test bench of a flying machine developing its own choreography (which it is in part). To a large extent, my personal expectations vested in the system were misplaced. At the same time, however, I discovered a number of fascinating phenomena that appeared even more interesting than the ones that I had initially contemplated. It is also impossible to ignore the evident tendencies of the project for “resonant” self-destruction – observing the object’s behaviour triggers all manner of fears in its creator.

Project from Robert Seidel is an outdoor projection performance take takes advantage of water fountains and trees for kaleidoscopic colours:

tempest is an environmental video installation commissioned for the 10th anniversary of Digital Graffiti Festival. The work combines abstract video projections and immersive soundscapes with choreographed fog and water fountains. In doing so, the artwork literally repaints the lake, woods and architecture of Alys Beach, Florida.

Kinetic sound sculpture by vtol uses ballbearings, speakers, lights and motors to generate abstract electronic sounds:

The mechanism is a system consisting of two sound circuits and auxiliary mechanical and electronic elements. The first sound circuit is a speaker emitting square wave. This speaker forces copper balls, served one at a time or several at a time through a dispenser, to bounce up and down on its membrane. Depending on the amplitude and frequency of the sound of the  speaker, the balls bounce at one of the same height or at another height. As they are confined in a pipe, they either fall back to the speaker, or jump out of it. If a ball jumps out, it ends up in one of seven collecting vessels and subsequently falls into the pipe. An optical sensor is installed in each of the seven pipes attached to the vessels, detecting the passage of the balls through this pipe. Subsequently, the ball ends up in the collector and may, as and when the balls are used, be returned to the mechanical dispenser through the use of a robotic “hand”. Depending on the number of times that a ball ends up in a vessel (pipe) and a particular vessel (pipe), the algorithm of the generated sound changes in the second circuit, which executes the generative composition. The frequency of the sound in the primary circuit is also affected by the number of hits.

Random Access Character

Project from GLKT generates surreal walking characters made with random objects and can save your results in GIF format:

Random Access Character is a procedural character generator.

It lets you generate an infinite number of different characters, made from various objects and textures.  Morphology, colors, movements, patterns are mixed together to create a unique blend and generate a unique character every time.

You can save an animated GIF of your favorite find, that will be upoaded to imgur. You can then share your encounter to the world !

It is available for PC, Mac and Linux here

GLKT have a tumblr blog @glkitty here

Latest artwork from vtol is a pendulum that generates abstract electronic sounds:

Interactive robotic music instrument/installation. Transparent plastic pipe of 2 meters long with passive magnet ball and magnetic field detectors inside. Each sensor triggers different sound synthesis algorithms. Can be controlled wireless using cellphone gyroscope/accelerometer, or using custom controllers.
