hanging lantern
feat. Floyd Hall on saxophone. again, random lyrics from garbling into a speech recognition tool, random visuals from old super 8 film, and this time i wrote chords on blank dice, rolled them, and wrote music based on what came up.

say hello my son
i have a son. these lyrics, as always, were generated in a random manner so this song has nothing to do with him.

i'm by no hurry
second in the series, matching up found super8 movies with music whose lyrics are determined by mumbling into a speech recognition app and using the phrases which it thought i'd said.

thank you to suzanne w for the cello and lucas c for the violin. the lyrics this time were generated differently; while at work, if a word i was digitizing was simultaneously a word i was hearing, i added it to a list, which got google-translated into italian.

the circle begins
this one features the lovely Savvy C on vocals. other than that, it's the usual: random lyrics from mumbling into a speech recognition app. random chords from rolling the guitar-dice. random clips from a drawer full of super 8 movies.

twenty four hours
the finale. the last one. last of the super-8, random chord, random lyric pieces. lots of great things came together on this one. a news channel accidentally posted a vid that skipped and repeated for about four and a half minues, and that's the background chatter. the double-exposed footage accompanies the cacophony nicely.

parody the rhumba

third song. same as the others: a mess of old super8, and lyrics generated from random garble spoken into a speech recognition app.

at at at
first in a series. i pick random clips from a stack of super8 movies that were given to me, and marry them to songs whose lyrics are generated by mumbling into a speech recognition app on my phone and then reading what it thinks i said.

cupid shuffle
the usual dadaist principles: lyrics generated by mumbling into a speech recognition app. chords chosen by rolling dice with chords on them. this is the first time i've done the whole video using only one roll of super 8. also first time singing all falsetto.
