One night a few weeks back, I got a hair up my ass to make a shadowcaster. No idea why. Just felt like it.
So I set one up on my coffee table and shot some footage of it with my iPhone.
Later, I looked the footage over and pieced together a loose story out of what I had shot to turn it into a music video for Iconoplasty.
Check it out below.
Until I get around to booking some time in a real studio to do an album, I’ve decided to just keep posting shorter bedroom jams from my looping project Iconoplasty.
I recorded this one last night on my laptop. You can hear me stomping the guitar pedals in a few places. But there are some good bits I’ll probably cannibalize later.
I’m going to be making my way through Oregon for a few shows and Thanksgiving and decided to make this promo video last night. Making a shadowcaster was fun, and there is a ton of leftover I’ll probably cut into a larger narrative piece at some point. But for now, you’ll have to get by with just the trailer.
I’ve been retooling my loop station into a new music project based around the idea of trying to use live instruments to perform the equivalent of DJ mixes, a continuous stream of constantly evolving layers of music.
I’m calling it Iconoplasty.
Because the music is entirely improvised and all runs through a single sound source, I haven’t figured out how to a do an album quality recording yet. But I laid down this little improv demo last night on Garageband with one mic in front of my amp.
