An Index Of Possibilities – Introduction

Sonic Fictions 2

The main index to my SONIC FICTIONS (‘sketches’ and miscellaneous tracks in progress).

I am posting my various activities and ideas here to see who (if anyone) might be interested in some creative trade/play?

One of my basic premises is one from theatre/movies, that of ‘Three Actors’. The idea that the human mind is ideally engaged with any three things at a time on a given ‘stage’ informs everything from photography, to animation, to pop mixes.

I have consciously created many of my tracks over the last years with up to two ‘actors’ present, anticipating either my own removal from the process for the third part or, at least, the seeming removal from ‘self’ by ‘time passed’. This, then becomes an open ‘audition’ if there are those inclined.

Virtual improvisations, synthesized soundscapes, rhythmic transient electronic hyperrealisms, imaginary strings, DSP performances, gestured noise, expanded palettes and conceptual  machines, composition, recording, mixes, and most art by Loopy C (Chris R. Gibson) unless otherwise noted (mash-ups, sound design contributions, etc.) Email me at loopyc(at)loopyc(dot)com.

“Amatuer – Someone who does something because they LIKE TO!, not because it is their profession”

Please note, I am in the process of a complete transfer and rebuild of this site so stay tuned for the ‘real thing’ For a visual/textual guide to the material presently ‘hiding’ in the ‘master players’ below, please see this screen shot of my former blog with descriptions, catagories, and art.

It’s one big jpeg of the entire blog (21 mb) so it will take a minute or so to load/download!

PLAYER INSTRUCTIONS

Clicking on the link ‘Player’ in individual posts will allow you to select playlists and/or tracks.

-The > before a list name in the player is a track (click to play if it doesn’t start up immediately).
-The + before a list name in the player is an individual complete playlist, click to open playlist and then click the first track in list that appears to begin.

Some playlists do require some time to load! depending on your connection speed so allow for this or you can use the ‘down arrow’ following each trak’s name to directly download to your hard drive.

Additional ‘Help’ can be found on the player itself via ‘hovering’ over a control. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.

 

**Special note on audio levels.

Most tracks are pre-production/unmastered and are optimized at -6db below 0 db (digital fullscale) so turn up the volume for previewing and enjoy the headroom when mixing in YOUR own tracks :D

Andy: Holy shit it’s a house. Watch your step.

(An ancient abandoned house looms over them)

Alexis: Andy.

(Andy is eager to explore)

Alexis: Chris?

(Cuts to inside of house, Andys view through Video camera; house is in
extreme state of decay, crumbling plaster no windows or doors walls knocked
out)

Alexis: Andy? Andy! Andy!

Andy: Come on!

Alexis: Andy where are you?

Andy: Come on, I’m in the house.

Alexis: Andy do not…

Chris’s voice: (muffled) please help!

(Cuts to Alexis’s view with 16 mm)

Alexis: Andy? Andy? Andy please.

Chris’s Voice: (muffled cries)

Alexis: Andy please. Andy where are you?

Andy: I’m right here! Where is he?

Alexis: Andy don’t leave me!

Alexis: Is he in here?

Andy: No. (Whispers) Oh shit.

Chris’s Voice: (muffled) No! God!

Andy: (whispers) Oh Jesus. (Arrives at a set of dishevelled set of stairs)
I hear him. (Begins to run up stairs) I hear him. I hear you! Where?
I’m going up stairs!

(Begins to climb second flight, there are child sized bloody hand prints and
strange occult symbols along the walls)

Three-part Pataphysical Inventions

“What distinguishes pataphysics from other artistic/philosophical movements that developed in the period from the 1890s through to the mid-twentieth century…is that it is not so much a movement as a collection of ideas. Since these ideas stand in counterpoint to science, rather than art, pataphysics has managed to sustain itself most effectively, finding fertile ground in any mind that thinks the objective truths of empiricism at least demand a little playful tweaking, if not wholesale reevaluation. Which is not to say that pataphysics is simply antiscientific, or even antirational. As always, the relationship between the parodistic aspects of pataphysics and the thing it parodies is complex: ironic, or even, as Marcel Duchamp would have said, meta-ironic. But we can say that pataphysics is subjective, privileging the particular above the general, the imaginary above the real, the exceptional above the ordinary, the contradictory above the axiomatic. Not that there is any choice in these matters: in pataphysics this is just the way things are.”

Reality Components & Vapor Trails

The body is how we know the universe. We often feel an emotion before we are aware of the thought that brought it about. By sensitizing the body to these feelings, it can lead us to alter habitual tendencies of the mind by seeing and then disengaging from these thoughts, which are as insubstantial as the steam from the dry ice of a cloud chamber. The reality component of the thought is the physical sensation that arises because of the thought, just like the vapor trail is the telltale sign that an atomic particle has been spun off from the needle of a cloud chamber.

Filaments and Clumps

As a result of gravitational and thermal instability in the gas disk, clumpy fluctuations evolve, and then the clumps merge and form filamentary structure in the nonlinear phase. Higher density clumps are formed in the filaments as a result of the gravitational instability or collisions between the filaments. Numerical model of star formation allows the evolution of the blast waves due to supernovae explosions in the rotating, inhomogeneous, multiphase, and turbulent-like media.

Horned Beau Of The Gross Death

So tiny in the earth
I smell dry elves beyond the ground
Word! The sin was good
Weird and invisible to the sky guy?
I breathe glowing bugs in the dreamscape
Now! The day is done
I am happy against the dreamscape
I conjure damp tomb stones against the grave
And a horned beau of the gross death
unsure unsafe 
at a crossroads 
nothing to lose 
For whose sake 
Should I
seek shelter 
in this late light?
