For the Yellow Wallpaper collab.
I don't know if this will fit CariAH's vision, but to me it seems like both the audio and video of this piece should eventually be "noised" up a bit—static, distortions, that sort of thing, at appropriate moments. Anything from a voiceover strangely sounding for a moment like it was being read through a toilet paper tube or into a tin can, to a second voice joining in for a moment, to distortion or static in the music, SFX, VOs, or video. Disruptions that also work in seamlessly. The best illustrations I can offer are in music: think of Velvet Underground's "Lady Godiva's Operation" or any of their use of distortion & noise, or think of His Name is Alive in the early to mid 90s (the albums Livonia, Home is in Your Head, Mouth By Mouth, etc.).
Anyway, this album is where I'm going to dump interesting visual backgrounds (and due to my own limited technology right now—my computer neither plays nor uploads video—these will be still images) that might be able to be used somehow in doing that.
Even if these can't be used, maybe they can inspire something for the video. Maybe they can be interpreted into sound, music, or sound effects.
A grand piano in one of the rehearsal studios at the Art Center Music School, Detroit. Like the building, it's badly in need of some cosmetic work. For the backgrounds & textures collab.
Yay, formatting!!! That's new, right? (Ahem.) I think I accidentally hit RECord on my camera prematurely, but I kinda liked the result, sorta. Here it is for you to like and use, or not. :)
I love concrete and rusty metal, so I was taking lots of pictures of this rusty chain and the pillars it was attached to with equally rusy fixures. You never know what folks here can use, so I thought I'd toss one of the pics up here.
DeLiLaH asked for a wide angle view of the tree, so I went to get one, and noticed something I hadn't before. It's in the original photo too, but here's a better shot. Looks like a face, doesn't it? I figured it might be fun for someone to play with here. I'm uploading a few shots of this tree now.
(Actually, in the thumbnail I saw while uploading this, it almost looked like a Munsch-style painting!)
some shadows I found in my house. it's overcast today so the light from the window made them were only half-shadows - caught between worlds?
This is kinda disgusting—it looks like one of those scrubby sponges after cleaning a burnt-on pan, doesn't it? It's the remnants of vines that covered a surface (as it happens, on an abandoned building in Oakland, CA) but are now dead. At any rate, it could give some texture to something, right?
Shot from across the street with a zoom lens. I suppose I could've just photographed the scrubby side of my kitchen sponge!
A doodle I do sometimes when I'm bored and out of creative ideas - figured it could be used for a texture or background by someone, somehow. It's not exactly perfect, but I kind of like the little inconsistancies. Gives it character, I think.
