Call for videos!

Bicephalic Records is putting out an open call for video submissions for a DVD noise/music video compilation. I am interested in modern digital & abstract video art, databending, etc. Audio genre is open, though I’m primarily interested in glitch electronics, electro-acoustic experiments, drone, harsh noise, etc. I will choose the videos I think are the best to be on the DVD so send your best material. If there are enough submissions I may end up expanding this into two volumes.
Here are some examples of my own work:

I have to see if I can find any high quality versions of my old Controlled Dissonance videos…

Datamoshing

I stumbled on this recently, and despite how corny the name is, the process is kinda cool. Were I so inclined to spend this much time at my computer these days, I might be tempted to do some datamoshing of my own.

Kicking, kicking, kicking.
Down, down, down.

Arg.

Fucking insomnia. Leave me be!

Just moved into a satellite office at work, wherein I am afforded a great deal of privacy to explore new music throughout the day. As such, I hope that the following will be the start of many shared aural experiences with you, my dearest readers. Enjoy.

News from Bicephalic Records

Hot off the presses:

New release from Bicephalic Records:

BC006 – Chefkirk / Somnaphon : Tender Pink Movements

http://www.bicephalic.net/bc006.html

Two great tastes that taste great together: A cassette split featuring Roger Smith (Chefkirk, _whALe_pLAtE_, Insects with Tits, Control Valve netlabel) and August Traeger (Somnaphon, Nipple Stools, Food World, Bicephalic Records). For this release, Chefkirk creates a sparse minimal glitch cut-up piece of sound and Somnaphon manipulates midi data to create a smeared electro-atmosphere. Great for a nice walk in the park or for a bad walk in the street… whatever you’re into.

Chefkirk is Roger H Smith is no-input mixing board is location recordings is microcassette is sampler is cpu is controlvalve.net
Recorded 2010-2011 @ HOME

Somnaphon is August Traeger + hardware & software manipulation.

Upcoming releases:
The next two releases will be split c20 tapes focusing on North Carolina noise artists & abstractionists:
bc007 – Food World / Clang Quartet
bc008 – Yohimbe / Caucasians

And just between you and I: I am super stoked for a Clang Quartet split.
