Christmas Lights 🎄 in Madrid


video upload by Oblivion Corner

Music and video by supporting member, Oblivion Corner.

"Took the Navibus to see the city's Christmas Lights in Madrid. Filmed the various holiday lights and Madrid city streets such as Gran Via and Cibeles. Celebrate the bright colors and city architecture on display. Wishing you all joyful Season's Greetings.
#christmaslights #madrid #fujixt4

This Fuji video test was shot from the top floor of the Navibus, using the Fuji XT4 camera paired with a Fujinon XF 23mm f2 lens. The video format settings for the original footage were Eterna film simulation, 4K 50p with a bitrate of 200 Mbps in Long GOP compression.

The video from the Fujifilm X-T4 was then edited and color graded in Final Cut Pro where certain clips were also additionally stabilized in software. This was in addition to IBIS on the Fuji camera which was set to active (but without boost or camera DIS).

Background Music: Disque Systeme - Edit 2

Thee Olde Tale of Moog Grandmother and thee Legend


video upload by Oblivion Corner

"Moog Grandmother analog synth and Synapse Audio The Legend VST are both played live in this loose dungeon synth jam. See how the much feted hardware analog synth plays along with a software emulation of the quintessential Minimoog.

Warm and relaxing synthesizer tones emanate from this live jam which has been edited from conciseness. Enjoy the blissful melodies accompanied by sundry picture in picture scenes from the Bayeux tapestry appearing to the right of the synthesizers.

You can see the Moog Grandmother lightly patched to expand its semi modular subtractive synth grandeur and allow for a richer palate of sounds. Meanwhile, the medieval figures echo the musical bewilderment and gently dissociative effect that synthesizer music can have on the listener.

The distinguished yet hesitant musical motifs counterpoint the genteel sonic timbre of the two synthesizer instruments.

A Failure of Imagination (i) // Shot on Fuji XT4


video upload by Oblivion Corner

"Music by Cybersyn. Used with permission by Oblivion Corner.
Full Album available now: https://synthandsundry.bandcamp.com/a...
For inchoate ramblings, read on ...

A cold concrete bench on a seasonably warm day is a slice of heaven. Add to that a location in a quiet corner and we are proverbially off to the races. This video features a track that was set to be included in a concept album about Cybersyn, a forward-thinking 70s antecedent to the internet and ‘big data’, being fictionally smuggled out of Chile just as the democratically-elected government collapsed due to the autocratic onslaught by brutal forces backed by the CIA and US corporations, named and unnamed, since those events. Thinking of what could have been is always a wistful exercise when it comes to technology.

This music imagines a form of progressive technocracy as the backbone of the technological developments that occurred in France throughout the 70s and 80s: high speed rail, space launch systems, interactive information systems accessible to all and a home computing revolution. The fictional machination of the album linked above imagines that all this national progress was enabled by the visionary capabilities of Cybersyn. Once more, it’s worth emphasizing that this is fiction. France did develop Ariane rockets, Minitel information terminals and the TGV high speed rail network but this was primarily thanks to the decisive actions of the government of the time which pushed these projects forward.

However, the idea of Cybersyn and the future it potentially augured has both a more sinister and melancholic side too. This is also represented in the music and visuals of this video. The influences here are two-fold, cinematic and literary. First of all, there’s la Nuit des Traquées (Night of the Hunted) the under-appreciated B-movie by Jean Rollin, starring the incomparable Brigitte Lahaie. The premise is that a nuclear accident has caused the emission of dangerous fast moving particles that have affected people in the surrounding area, causing amnesia and a loss of cognitive ability. A shadowy organisation has detained and subsequently relocates those affected to an ominous corporate skyscraper as the victims devolve into haunted animalistic shadows of themselves. Secondly, Les Forteresses Noires a novel by Patrick Grainville about a banker, a nightshift doctor, a sculptress and teenagers worshipping an odd assemblage of sewage rats. The common element here is that both the film and the novel are set in La Défense business district in Paris.

The location captured in this video is very much reminiscent of the architecture and solitary concrete corners of La Défense business district. The ominous nature of corporate architecture as well as the promise and paranoia of technology are the notions being conveyed here. However another idea that lies at the foundation of this music and album it was going to part of is “what could have been”. Namely, how would technology have evolved if at every fork the market forces of shortsighted thinking, cost-cutting and convenience had not been heeded. For example, what if Betamax had become the dominant video format of the 80s? What if France had pursued its homegrown CYCLADES network protocol instead of the X.25 based TRANSPAC standard? What if PC compatibles had never become as ubiquitous? What would the technological landscape look like now? This track and all the others featured in the album above (they will get their own videos in due course) aim to give a feeling of what that would have been like interspersed with the aforementioned intrigues and ideas.

This video was filmed with the Fujifilm XT4 camera using the Fujinon XF 23mm f2 lens.

OP-1 Deep Dive #3 | DIGITAL is BETTER?


video upload by Oblivion Corner

"Discover the Digital synth engine on the Teenage Engineering OP-1. This mystifying OP1 synthesizer has complex interactions between its four sound parameters: wavefolder, octave, ring modulator / detune and something called 'digitalness'. This video gives you an overview of each parameter in turn and proposes a way to demystify how to tweak your sounds on this OP-1 synth engine and get more out of it. Before finishing off, there's also time to highlight one of my fave sound presets on Digital.

00:00 Intro
00:12 OP-1 Digital parameter overview
01:00 Octave (green knob)

Additionally, a one knob filter, amplitude and modulation control round out the sound shaping options available on this OP-1 synth engine.

OP-1 New Firmware 243: USB Audio, Finally! 😊


video upload by Oblivion Corner

"A new significant firmware update has landed for the Teenage Engineering OP-1. This quick video shows how to update your OP-1 with the latest firmware.
#teenageengineering #op1 #firmware
A decade in the waiting, the OP1 finally gets USB Audio. I've tested it and see that you can send or receive two channels of audio to or from the OP-1. All you need is the firmware update installed and then your computer, tablet or phone should be able to "see" the OP-1 as an audio source or destination. Very exciting indeed!
