The clip I put together for Agnes Kain a few months ago has just gone live. The clip is for their track “Still Grey” lifted from their new record “Before We Finally Meet”, out November 23rd.
This was a really fun project – I’ve become quite fond of the lonely moon-bot. The whole thing took about 2 months of steady work and it’s my first primarily computer animated music video – quite the time saver but I think I still prefer the imperfections and unpredictability that come from physical techniques.
new conceptual, introspective, cinematic hip-hop from the mighty subsketch.
this should be on your hard-drive.
excitingly, i was invited to be part of feral media’s new strain of origin II compilation. it’s a really high quality mix of australian artists all remixing each other – i remixed underlapper, aheadphonehome remixed me, AFXJIM remixed aheadphonehome, anonymeye remixed AFXJIM and on and on and out popped a really tops collection of tracks. from the blurb:
The compilation traverses genres with the resulting tracks as varied as the artists themselves. From the pulsing ambience of Broken Chip’s take on Toy Balloon, to Comatone’s assaulting drill n bass reworking of Simo Soo, to Zeal’s all-out indietronic take on Underlapper’s track Himpory.
Elsewhere Restream turns 8-bit maestro Dot.AY’s track into a stomping glitch freak out, while Jonathan Boulet takes us on a ride through desert plains with his spaghetti western reimagining of Brisbane artist Subsea.
The Strain of Origin compilations are a great example of what can be achieved through remote collaboration and are a true testament to the high calibre of music being produced on Australia’s fair shores. This second compilation establishes a precedent for an annual release with new Australian artists and labels to be added along the way.
the compilation is free. go get it: http://feralmedia.bandcamp.com/album/strain-of-origin-ii

I (like many) have always wanted to guest program rage. In order to do that though, I’d first need to become famous. And that requires a lot of time and effort that I could instead be putting towards jumping up and down in front of my laptop making strange noises (true story). Happily, I’ve been invited by ACMI to come and talk about animation, music videos, tech hackery and all the things I do when instead I should be going out there getting famous. I’m gonna screen some of my work as well as some music videos that have pressed the OMG button in my brain. Like these ones:
It’s happening Tuesday, April 3rd, 6PM @ Studio 1, ACMI (Federation Square, Melbourne). It’s a free event but you do need to book here. come! say hello and ask me things!
