For an account of the genesis and production of The Big Shimmer, click here.
A new piece for chamber orchestra and electronics, intended to be the first of a cycle of pieces wherein the theme is water. In this case, the Pacific Ocean and many of its beautiful creatures. Written, arranged, and produced by yours truly.
I’m too tired to write much more about the piece right now (Friday midnight), but I will tomorrow or Sunday.
I will add a link where you can buy the song shortly. For now, enjoy.
I will be discussing this and the other songs from Deus Sex Machina shortly. In the meantime, enjoy this video I created by appropriating the wonderful 1934 cartoon Bimbo’s Initiation by Max Fleischer. I think they go incredibly well together.
Dan Marcolina, Jack Hollingsworth, Richard Gray, Karen Divine, Marty Yawnick, and Knox Bronson in the big room at Macworld, January 31.
I know, ancient history, but I just found this on Youtube. It’s only gotten 253 views!
I’m not as bad a doofus as I thought I was and that is a great relief. Thanks once again to Dan Marcolina for putting everything together for the Macworld Mobile Masters event.
And I figured out that I’ve looked at over 100K images since launching P1xels … as Withnail said, “We’ve gone on holiday by mistake!”
Shot and edited on an iPhone 3GS at Muir Beach, California. Stills shot in Emeryville and St. Helena, CA.
In December of 2009, Knox Bronson approached Rae Douglass at the Giorgi Gallery in Berkeley, California with the idea of presenting the first ever gallery exhibit of iPhone photography. Rae said yes, and within days, Knox had created a website, iphontography.org, and had put out a call for submissions.
Pictures flooded in from all over the world. Amazing pictures, all done on iPhones. No editing on a computer was allowed, and suspect images were checked and removed if found to have been edited elsewhere.
At the end of a 30-day submission window, an independent jury was convened to vote on and choose 200 images. The show opened on January 30th and ran through the month of February, garnering rave reviews and exposing the world to the beauty of this emergent medium and nascent art form.
This is a movie of the 200 finalists, with music by show co-founder, Knox Bronson.
