What to do?


I have no idea what the point of this course is and what i am getting out of this? I lost the creative thinking in second year and now i'm running on empty. But to help myself i bought a new (old) stereo for £20 on ebay. I think it's the best thing ever. Anyway enjoy.

Afghanistan

This is a recording of my practise in the white space. I was trying to show the publics view of the Afghan war through the medias footage published on Youtube.com. I mixed the audio with trakor scratch and used the Vision Mixer to edit the video live. Any questions just ask.

Kid Koala.

I cannot get enough of Kid Koala, he defiantly rocks my world. He does not conform to modern rules when DJing, which gives him his unique style and original presence. I believe that i could learn alot from how he uses his favourite songs from different genres and his humour to create a story through VJing. His piece 'Moon River' show how amazing he is, to take a slow powerful song and recreate it into a festival winner. I suggest listening to 'Drunk Trumpet' it's a fucking gem. How he uses the turntable with no power to hit the right notes and rhythm. Anyway talking like a twat so i'll stop. Enjoy.

DJ Spooky.

I love Dj Spooky, he helps to show modern culture through history of America. In this piece he use the propaganda film "Rebirth of a Nation'. He is a great performer who dabbles with Hip-hop culture, racial movements, modern America and current art discussions. Very well educated, he lectures at local universities and institutes. A great reference i use in my work.

Research.


When researching my Uni work I stumbled upon The Light Surgeons, They are fucking ace. Great style which is unique and straight to the point. Here is a clip that gave me inspiration for my Afghan work.
