So a friend has produced a conceptual art project using circuit bent keyboards and that i thought CM.O may be interested. Apart from the particular keyboards themselves being an element of the project he’s also getting others to collaborate with him to perform a new soundtrack to Snow White-colored. I have been part of three songs to date: There’s Trouble A Brewin’, Makin’ Pies and the other one potential released within the next couple of days. The songs are pretty simplistic since he isn’t a music performer but they’re pretty rad and sort of experimental. If you are on Facebook take a look and if you want it stick to the project. Here is his artist statement for Snee Whittchen.
Dwarfs. Nocturnes for Snee Whittchen is really a project that utilizes the closed narrative context of Snow White-colored and also the Seven Dwarfs to understand more about nature, culture and technology’s relationship to human thoughts and idea of mind. The work also explores the potential of achieving transcendence from inside the constraints of the closed system. One part of the project includes seven synthesizers which have been hacked, rewired and altered through the artist. Each synthesizer functions like a stand it for a dwarf character (recommended by quantity) and for one sort of dwarf star (recommended by quality, mainly color). The viewer is offered both qualitative and quantitative ways of association. By using new seem options and distortions the “dwarfs” are now able to transcend their original limited traits both metaphorically with regards to the single disposition provided to the dwarfs by Disney and physically with regards to the synthesizers broadened functional characteristics. Within the second part of the project a Snow White-colored character named Snee Whittchen was invented and it is alternatively restricted in function, existing like a facebook avatar eternally suspended inside a cyber sleep. This facebook page functions being an ongoing archive for experimental sound files aimed toward the compositional type of nocturnes and celestial harmonies. Each song reinterprets a track in the musical score to Disney’s Snow White-colored and also the Seven Dwarfs whilst serving as a soundtrack to Snee Whittchens subconscious. The songs are recognized by inviting others to collaborate, only using the altered synthesizers and live recording.
