I used VHS source material of sci fi movies from the 1990s that never made it to DVD running through Tachyons + processors, a homemade video feedback processor, and a modular video synthesizer mostly for colorization. I love scenes with virtual reality and the song brings out a pretty sinister feeling in some of this and lets you make up a story pieced together from 10 or so movies.
Incidentally, the title of this track was inspired by a comment on Japan, California, UK that reads: “If, within 6 months, this isn’t the soundtrack to an inspirational, animated montage where cartoon field mice build an aeroplane from junk and fly above their home waving down to their friends, then there’s no justice.”
This is the fifth excerpt from my Ostraka performance, “Postfauxpocalyse,” on October 24, 2013 at Popup Northrop. It was recorded directly from a Mackie 1202 VLZ Pro to a Sony PCM-D50 at 48kHz/24bit. Again the instruments used were a DSI Tempest, Korg Volca Keys, Korg Monotribe, and Memory Man analog delay. This is my favorite of the series so far because, although improvised, it feels the most compositional.
