My new sounds:
Dad’s been a keen amateur photographer his whole life and has always encouraged myself and my sister to do the same but I think this might be the best photo he’s ever taken. As far as my sister and I are concerned Dad should be Internet famous but short of that, this picture should.
Edit: I had a little scare at work after cutting my finger and had recently touched a bag with a syringe in it. At the doctor while getting a shot I noticed the curtains which they pull around beds had a peculiar pattern on them. It struck me this is a great demonstration of what I like about both graffiti and modular synthesizers and this photo might tie those two seemingly disparate topics together. It’s the seeming mess, the loops and breaks, what looks like or sounds like it might be nothing at all - but take time, focus and learn, accept the mood of the mess, then patterns emerge, purpose and balance, repetition, but not a common repetition. Abstraction in this way should work in two directions, extrapolation from the underlying forms to those above but also a way for something deceptively simple to communicate a lot of detail, the detail under the surface. Not depth, but complexity expressible in frequency and amplitude. I could Crap on.
This tag has a great motion from left to right. You can imagine a sparkling Disney like reveal as it opens up across the cement. The proportions are also unbalanced but geometrically locked so it doesn’t lean or tilt in space. Even the tightest parts don’t seem cramped when balanced by the smooth loops.
This tag has a lot of bounce, a lot of vertical energy which seems compressed between the points, or dots on either side. Even the underline looks as though it’s been forced from a straight line to double back to itself. I always love stuff this fluid and clean and it’s a shame it starts out so darty but soon eases up and relaxes toward the right.
