So many times people say, “why don’t you put vocals on your recordings?” well I do sometimes, like on this song/video above for the 2014 song, Sculpted View. I made this video with my old VHSc camera and with the help of my Boyfriend Victor as camera man. I just realized it’s been on YouTube quietly for years, so thought I’d give it a little push again.
The song is about my first boyfriend after coming out, and the image I made of him in my head verses the reality of the type of person he was.
Here’s a new track I made using Ableton Live. Synths used were my Mothman VST series which you can download using the link in the header, as well as Ableton’s drum rack and Simpler. Footage for the video were taken from The Howling, and a VHS NASA documentary about Mercury. Thanks for watching. New album coming soon!
I wrote my mothman plugins some time ago, so they are 32 bit only. However they work fine using jbridge, a 32/64 bit VST bridge which you can get here https://jstuff.wordpress.com/jbridge/. I use the jbridge on both mac and pc and it works great and is not that expensive.
