First time playing with a flash gun for the indoor shot, and using Lightroom to edit. Had to resist the temptation to edit these too heavily, but muted out the colours a bit and lowered the contrast to create a more natural, pastel palette.
Nai Harvest are awesome, their new EP “Hold Open My Head” is out soon on Dog Knights Productions (UK) and Topshelf Records (US). Listen to it here:
Recorded, mixed, and mastered this Demo EP by Skool Milk; a band in Sheffield consisting of members from Avida Dollars, Nai Harvest and Radical Boy. These tracks were recorded using a 4 track interface, which was the main limiting factor. Considering how DIY the whole process was, I’m pretty happy with the overall recordings.
One scene from a much larger project, this illustrates sound>visual synaesthesia based on first hand accounts of what a kettle boiling ‘looks like’ to a synaesthete. This scene demonstrates the aesthetic choices made within the project, the difference between the vector style of the character and the hand-drawn, monochromatic scenery, and the relationship between the two.
This was a research-based project focused on synaesthesia and the effects of the condition upon an individual, specifically someone who is unfamiliar with the condition. Throughout the course of a day, the main character experiences a number of types of synaesthesia. His initial confusion turns to intrigue and inspiration; he first experiences the sensory overload as described by several ‘synaesthetes’ interviewed within the project, but then sees the beauty of the condition and tries to document this through drawing/painting by trying to trigger his synaesthesia.
Above are some still frames and development from the project.
