King Cannibal – Cannibalism 2011 (free d/l)

Posted in audio visual mix, dj mix, film/dvd, free download, music with tags , , , , , , on December 24, 2011 by Nabil

here are a few words from King Cannibal on what you’re about to hear, “As we’re reaching the end of the year and i’m looking towards developing my set in to my newer productions in 2012 i thought it timely to take a glance back at the kind of sets i was playing out this year, for those who didn’t get a chance to see me or want to re-live one of the shows they caught me at. This was recorded for a show on 27th Aug at l’Usine in Geneva, Switzerland as it was to feature a big AV hook up and the crew needed to familiarize themselves with what i would be playing on the night. It’s somewhat of an expansion of The Way Of The Ninja mix cd released at the end of last year, but goes way beyond that.

Matt Black – AV tests

Posted in animation, audio visual mix, documentary, music with tags , , on November 23, 2011 by Nabil

Matt Black,  one half of the legendary Coldcut as well as one of Ninja Tunes co-founders and still one of their head-honchos, is a major lover of audio/visual technology. Black is one of the inventors of the VJamm software used in the Coldcut live shows and has been an innovator of the whole av scene. here are a couple of things that caught my attention on Black’s YouTube channel allgoodmatt

this first video was made using Memos Amoeba QC patch, adapted for realtime midi control in VDMX with audio from Ableton. using midi to simultaneously control video and audio synths makes an explicit AV connection

next up is a midi controlled AV synth with AV echo/feedback effects using Quartz composer and vdmx , with Ableton doing sound

and lastly, Matt Black and Paul Smiles give a quick demo of their work in progress, an AudioVisual marimba built using Ableton, Processing, and an AkaiMPD24

Head (the 1968 Mokees movie) – DJ Food Rescore

Posted in audio visual mix, film/dvd, free download, music with tags , , , , on November 17, 2011 by Nabil

here’s something a little special for fans of The Monkees 1968 psychedelic comedy-adventure, Head. the original was written and produced by Bob Rafelson and Jack Nicholson and directed by Rafelson, but here we have a re-score of the cult classic created between 2001 and 2004 by DJ Food. parts of the original dialogue are retained in places but all musical content has been replaced by new songs, sounds and spoken word. you can find it just here and also download it for free. the film, which is really a series of sketches as there is no plot to speak off,  features Victor Mature and has cameo appearances by Jack Nicholson, Teri Garr, Frank Zappa, Sonny Liston, Dennis Hopper, Toni Basil and others

this is an interesting, unofficial trailer (let it play on at the end)

and here’s The Porpoise Song (theme from Head)

DJ Cheeba: Live (superb audio/visual mix)

Posted in audio visual mix, dj mix, free download, music, podcast with tags , , , on November 12, 2011 by Nabil

DJ Cheeba has really out done himself with his new a/v mix,  and this time he’s even incorporated himself into proceedings in the form of live footage and some specially made green screen stuff. there’s music from as eclectic a selection as fans can expect; old blues, spanking beats, balls out pop, funk and beyond. and as for the visuals, well they come from just about everywhere too

the art of the mixtape just took another leap forward and there’s no looking back

should you want to listen to and/or download just the audio track (it’s free), then you can do that right here

focusing on tracks with videos as strong as the accompanying audio, the mix smoothly blends it’s way through a myriad of musical genres, pleasuring the eyes and ears in equal measure
