The Inabsolute Mix is an ongoing project that incorporates different audio and video tracks from Youtube in an attempt to create disorienting and/or meltingly synchronous collages. I use music videos, famous news broadcasts, vintage movies, foreign films, tent revival preaching, saturday morning cartoons. I adjust the speed and the volume in search of a particular feeling. But then the same elements of the mix can be altered by a few twists of the button and it’s something new altogether.
I have felt the sensation of time traveling, head hopping, astral projection, and other forms of existential carnival. I partner some of these mixes with time in a sensory deprivation tank and in energy sessions.
What you need to do to participate — open multiple tabs (not windows) on your browser and push play on each video so that they’re playing at the same time. I recommend using over the ear headphones to maximize the full range.
If you decide to make your own mix (highly encouraged) please feel free to add it to the comment section. If you have time, maybe give a little description as to why you chose the tracks that you chose or what you experienced in the mix.
If you want me to create a custom mix for you, send me an email. I’ll have some questions for you before I go to the canvas.
