Tonight’s Inabsolute Mix is: Ramshackle Glory – “Never Coming Home” Normandy – (WWII footage) The idea for tonight’s mix beamed itself into my head. I wasn’t even listening to the Ramshackle Glory when I thought about what would pair with it. I don’t even know which one came into my head first. In any case, […]
Tonight’s mix is a THREE channel variant that you can have a lot of fun with. It’s great for watching opposite audio. *Popeye the Sailor Man Classics *Mono – Live at Hollywood Forever Cemetery *Unsolved Mysteries (S11:E8) Popeye audio over Unsolved Mysteries is f’ing funny.
Tonight’s mix is a cool experiment in reversing audio/video feeds. The Letter (1940, movie, .75 speed, low(ish) volume) Anika Pyle – The Void (2018, song, loud(er) volume) This is illustrative in a couple of ways. Note the matched color and note patterns when viewing the movie but listening to the song. Now watch what happens […]
Tonight’s Super Mix is… * Brand of Hate (western movie, 1934, .5 speed) * Cymande – Dove (sometimes I move this to .5 right away. It can handle the slowdown * the Katie Ellen show from 11/12/16 God Bless the Musicians who know all the things that don’t have words.
Tonight’s Ultra Youtube Mix: * Born to the Saddle (western movie, 1953, .5 speed) * Relaxing Armenian music w/ duduk * Sam Moore – Moooohieee The duduk and the Sam Moore musical saw playing are a super haunting combo. The Western adds surreal character. What about you?
Tonight’s mix is: A Canção de Lisboa (Portuguese movie, 1933, .75 speed) NBC Nightly News (August 16, 1977, .5 speed) Post-Rock for Sleep: Night One I think you can learn a lot about a movie even when you don’t speak the language and even when you don’t look at the visuals if you can just […]
Tonight’s mix is: Daughter – “Montreaux Jazz Festival 2016” The Man Who Cheated Himself (film, 1950) That’s it. Pretty simple tonight. I feel like it’s pretty good for time travel back to the mid 50s (though, admittedly, in this incarnation I wasn’t there). Daughter is one of those bands that is so great at what […]
Tonight’s mix is: Deep Cello Music The Cry of the Armenian Duduk Isle of Forgotten Sins (*note* this gets played at 1/2 speed) I’ve decided after learning about the duduk that pretty much all videos can be enhanced by having a duduk. It’s this haunting, wailing instrument that you’ll recognize from movie soundtracks. It […]
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 […]
