Spiral Galaxy - Abre Ojos

"The Spiral Galaxy project has been constructed using the images of Marek Dobiecki artist, teacher and astronomer. Dobiecki has built himself an observatory in his backyard in the Dandenong ranges where he tracks the night sky with his computer controlled f4.5 x 30cm Newtonian Telescope capturing galaxies, nebulae and star fields. The photographs are wonderfully fragile, textured, grayscale images of up to 2 hours exposure time revealing things we can barely see with the naked eye.

These photos were built into a series of audio reactive Quartz Composer animations and the sounds are inspired from space recordings and low frequency atmospheric sounds of the earth built on a eurorack modular synthesizer. The tracks are all recorded in one pass with no overdubs for sound or vision. The project is now completed and is sealed with the DVD release of Spiral Galaxy. The DVD has 3 tracks giving just over 66 minutes of sound and vision. The three tracks are:

* NGC1313 Spiral Galaxy in Reticulum
* NGC2835 Spiral Galaxy in Hydra
* NGC1313 Live at Electundra Festival 2009

Hydra and Reticulum are new videos while the live video was recorded back in November of last year at the Electundra Festival at Loop Bar. The DVD gives you all three tracks in full screen 16:9 DVD quality with full uncompressed audio to let the entire frequency range loose. As usual if you pop the DVD in your computer you’ll find 320khz MP3 versions of all the tracks for your fav audio device.

The DVD is a hand numbered limited edition of 50.

Cost is $15USD including postage to anywhere in the world via Paypal. For the first 20 orders I’m also including some limited edition postcards of the Geometers print series.

Purchase at the website via Paypal:"
