A Few Nice Interviews...

I seem to have been interviewed a fare bit recently, which is always really nice. Here are two of them.



Hope you enjoy!


Fantastic analogue effects produced for a live recording of Jon Hopkins at the ICA.
Created by Bison (aka Dave Bullivant and Owen Silverwood) going mad with magnetics on TV screens...

"The 'post production' on this video was unorthodox: All analogue and all in-camera.

We were really keen on making a gritty, abstract performance video. So we set to work with magnets, screwdrivers, VHS tapes and a host of other techniques: We made an initial edit and played this back through a £3 TV we picked up at the local market, and 'manipulating' it with a screwdriver allowed us to flutter and flicker the image on screen. We'd also bought an industrial strength magnet and used that to distort and twist the picture on itself. We made several runs through the track in this way before playing everything out to VHS (with obligatory stomping and scrunching).

This effectively gave us a new set of footage to make a tailored, grunged-up edit of the original piece."

Trick Shot

Classic example of YouTube cutting the video clip just that little bit too short!
