Stargazer Jazz - Mystic Resonance:
This short flick is a combination of promotional "rock video" and also a demonstration of some of the collage techniques employed in some of the sofwtare products from The Internet Annex. The intention is to create a space travel, space exploration atmosphere in much the same way that the featured music is itself an exploration of experimental jazz. For more music by this ambient jazz trio, go to the official Stargazer Jazz Online Space Station.
The music featured in this video is a collaboration of 3 contributing artists featured @ freesoundtrackmusic.com:
"The Magic of ROBOCOLLAGE" video explains how InterAnnex's ROBOCOLLAGE application can help users create automatic collages of text and digital images. This Windows application is free for personal use. More information about ROBOCOLLAGE can be found HERE.
The video features background music from an artist featured @ freesoundtrackmusic.com: Steve Lowther.
This video explains why representative democracy has failed and introduces the InterAnnex "Party Wreckers" system design project which is intended to improve communication between elected representatives and their constituents. Background music is from the Sergey Rewired Project (produced by C.P.Bryan).
This video details the progressive stages of completion during artist C.P.Bryan's work on his painting "Driving To Abstraction". This type of painting is a mashup of sometimes contradictory and non-complementary paint layers. In keeping with that theme, the video of this process is also a combination of layers, giving movement to what otherwise would have been static frames along the way. The background music is a recording entitled "What Lurks Beneath", and is a collaboration by C.P.Bryan and Steve Lowther. More music compositions by C.P.Bryan are available HERE.
A Word on the Internet Annex Video Promotions Page...
Churn out the CONTENT! In a world where all cultural output - whether it be in the form of text, audio or video - is now so easily created, packaged and distributed as DIGITAL CONTENT... In this new world where every individual has the power to be a "published" writer or record or video producer... what is the role of advertising? Is the value of advertising strengthened or diminished by a population armed with powerful digital media workstations? I would suggest that marketing and promotion may be more important than ever. Despite the daily examples of the boy or girl next door garnering millions of views with their "viral videos" on YouTube, I believe that the Barons (or Czars?) of the communications/entertainment industries wield more power than ever before. (How else do you explain a phenomenon like The Kardashians?) Because for every waterskiing chipmunk or skateboarding dog that goes viral, thousands or tens of thousands of videos languish in obscurity. Alas, that has generally been the fate of my humble little videos. But for those brave souls who find themselves in these online backwaters, let me invite you on my own particular journey of video weirdness. In the words of Hunter S. Thompson: "When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro". On with the WEIRDNESS!
And now...lets get on with the shameless self promotion:
