So what we have here is a sampler of cable tv glitches captured last week. I have figured out that the old HD controller in my tv is incapable of rendering some HD signals with newer types of data streams. When the controller fails the picture is chunked and pixilated in spectacular fashion.
All I need to do next is figure out how to digitize the video directly from the TV and I will be all set up to do some great glitch videos. I am pretty sure I have all the equipment I need to hack a signal out of the TV, I just need to dig up some cables and find the external box for my media center laptop and I will be good to go!
Ready made Glitch #2 is one of my favorites, its taken from the first series of glitches I captured a while back. It is from the tv series Lazy Town.Tue, 18 Nov 2008
I get a lot of band press releases for my blog and I post very few of them. How I Became theBomb is a different story. Their mix of electronics, rock with great stylized vocoder processed vocals is fantastic. The space/military theme with Strangelove influences is awesome. Were I still playing music in the old electronic rock project I was in 10 years ago I have no doubt we would be playing similar bills.
They got the helmet on ebay and apparently it is an authentic Russian cosmonaut helmet, at any rate it made the singer Jon Burr very sick after the several hour video shoot.
They have 4 upcoming digital releases planned through June of next year.
Each volume will have 3 songs accompanied with a video. The volumes--named after famous military slogans--will be released on various notable dates, all of which are listed below.
Vol. 1 Who Dares Wins – November 5, 2008 (Guy Fawkes Day)
David Crismon works in oil on metal panel. At first glance his works remind me of something done using XVI32 (link to Dick Cheney meets XVI32), except with actual craftsmanship rather than hacker tomfoolery.
Crismon says, "I want to show the process of recovering and constantly revising the past; to show history being altered into mere data.". His pieces are created using very traditional processes but the glitch connection is unmistakable. He paints classical historical images but recreates them with missing, repeated and incomplete data.
My hair particle drawing project ( hairy bush ) is in this show as well as some of my favorites from Siggraph 2007 including Sheldon Brown's Scaleable City. If you are in the area you should check it out for sure!
