A few people have asked me how I do an endless Instagram feed http://instagram.com/brainztain so I decided to put together a quick tutorial of my workflow. First of all, this is not an on-the-go type of project so you will need an actual computer loaded with the latest version of Inkscape (free, poor man's illustrator).
The Phonewave EP is an international music project consisting of 20 tracks (38min) made entirely from telephone-recorded voicemails collected via 1-818-649-WAVE. The project was born on my instagram feed (@brainztain) and most of its contributors were part of the Instagram community connected through hashtags such as: #vaporwave #seapunk #webpunk #netpunk #cyber #cyberghetto #sadboys #glitchart #vhsglitch #bitwave #8bit #pixelart #phonewave etc.
You may or may not have heard of vaporwave, but chances are you have already been exposed to some of its stylistic ripples. What I mean by this is that mainstream culture machines such as MTV have already started mining this underground internet-born artistic movement.
The purpose of this abstract experiment was to explore unconventional creative processes of audio and video recording and editing in order to create diverse interpretations of the final product. Originally the project was limited to audio and it wasn't until later that I decided to expand the creative progression onto video.
