'Compression', 2014

'In past years, the standard method of producing music was on a vinyl record produced in high fidelity so as to bring out every little detail in the recorded track. However, as years have gone on and technology has advanced, the quality of music has decreased. Today, an album can be downloaded from the internet in minutes, potentially compressed to a very low quality, and then loaded onto a portable music player. To illustrate this, I chose to focus on the Sheffield-founded electronic label Warp Records and, using album artwork from their roster of artists and a variety of computer programs, disassembled the music listening experience down to its simplest components before re-presenting it in a highly corrupt and degraded state.'

The first in a new series I’ve started. I’m sure there’ll be many more of these to come.

'Came Back Haunted'
2013

I decided to do this quick series out of excitement for Nine Inch Nails’ new single.
I glitched six of the art material for their 2007 album ‘Year Zero’, my favourite of their albums as well as one of my favourite art series ever.
Original art by Rob Sheridan.

My first ever attempt at video datamoshing.
It’s not brilliant, I’m aware but it’s cool for a first attempt in my opinion.

Expect more of this type of stuff soon. I’m having major problems with the program I’m using to make them though, unfortunately so I might not get them released quickly.

Yes! Just cracked how to datamosh video files.

This is gonna open up a hell of alot of experimentation.


Watch out for updates.

'Random Access Memories'2013
A quick glitch image I did featuring the two members of Daft Punk. Very excited about their new album and their robot guises and electronic music are the perfect accompaniment to the style of glitch images.
