Hi Chris! I was curious, in the Shangri-La track in Seduce Me 2, are the voices generated in computer or did you get someone to sing you the beginning? ovo/

Sort of both. I used a “Virtual Instrument Library” which was recorded with real voices, then used my music software to manipulate that to do what I want. So I played it digitally, but the quality of software and of the virtual instrument library made it sound real. 

@thegladelf  said: I do not know the “Daniel Tiger” song, but I’ve heard enough stories about the Frozen craze to guess how often you hear it in a day.

Songs.  Plural.  More than one.  All about 6 words long and repetitive as hell, and in some computer-generated atonal… noise.  It’s truly horrifying, especially after increasingly longer bouts of exposure.


Amazing Digital Art

Born in Poland in 1972, digital artist Adam Martinakis currently lives and works in in Cannock, United Kingdom. His computer-generated artworks employ aspects of photorealism and surrealism to explore the human condition which he says results in a “mixture of post-fantasy futurism and abstract symbolism”.


Bursting Bubbles

Two UC Berkeley researchers have now described mathematically the successive stages in the complex evolution and disappearance of foamy bubbles (the images above are based off of a computer-generated video that uses their equations).

What purpose does this serve (besides making for some very mesmerizing GIFS…)?  The work has applications in industrial processes for making metal and plastic foams (like those used to cushion bicycle helmets) and in modeling growing cell clusters, which rely on these types of equations.

The problem with describing foams mathematically has been that the evolution of a bubble cluster a few inches across depends on what’s happening in the extremely thin walls of each bubble, which are thinner than a human hair.

a poem

If only live so swallowed treasures, replaced hymns with the picture plane.
When they learned from above my eyes turn to go.
Shamelessly i look into anything so tall when you.
“we’ve fallen.
Nothing’s so far and breast may never to reconsider.
The water like the memory.
Let our voices, our animal indecency in forms that twenty years deep to the fallen on you.
It is built of the fact that if only purity i’ve missed another we will never feel our linear forever, we will cause the final breath.
A slowly constructed manifestation of a key to call from the dread that overwhelms the ends.
To want to know i fade apart.


Matter by Quayola

Quayola on his project:

Matter is a time-based digital sculpture; a celebration of matter itself, the substance of all physical things. It describes a continuous dynamic articulation of a solid, pure block of matter, from the simplest primitive forms to the highest details of geometric complexities, and vice versa… from the unpredictable grace of geological processes to the perfection, beauty and precision of man made crafts. The subject of this piece is Rodin’s sculpture Le Penseur (The Thinker), a masterpiece born as the avant-garde that has since become a universal classical icon, and now considered the bridge from classical to modern sculpture.
