“Take a holiday from reality whenever you like, and come back without so much as a headache or a mythology.”
– Brave New World (Aldous Huxley, 1932)

i blow my mind
almost every night
with my early girl
and a couple transient lines

it’s not that i
have too much time
it’s just that i
make time to fry

i am slipping in and out of time
watching as my neighbors fly
out their windows way up high
every time i close my eyes

but this mass hallucination
is just a restless indication
that we can’t deal with
how really real all of this
really is

you can take a holiday
from reality
whenever you like

i go offline
anytime i have time
with my early girl
and a couple other close friends of mine

you say you want to feel real
why do you want to feel real?
there’s no need to feel real.
you shouldn’t have to feel real.

you can take a holiday
from reality
whenever you like

STORY:

I’m in Detroit. Or what I think is Detroit. Wandering around in the rain. I’m in town to play a show and I can’t sleep. Neon lights abandoned Main Street. Restaurants and artist studios nestled between broken glass windows and crumbling bricks. Harbinger or fossil? Hard to tell.

I pass a shaky-looking guy on the street.

“I’m looking for Hinrinson’s,” I say to him.

“Yeah,” he says. “Just walk up the hill, take the right fork and it’ll be right there on your left.”

faucet fripp festival [disquiet0075-vinesuite]

PROCESS:
Sounds + Visuals:

1. vine.co/v/bLELKHq7xmL
Kitchen faucet, full throttle cold water, moved across drain.

2. vine.co/v/bLJPD9wbOWO
Robert Fripp “Easter Sunday” SoundPage (from Guitar Player Magazine, Jan 1986), alternated with Karl Johnson cut-paper silhouette of my wife, Cat, with me drone-humming.

3: vine.co/v/bLjLW52PtAw
Sunset view over perched dog, Sterling, out my front apt window, Brooklyn LGBT Pride Parade/Festival one-half block away on 5th Avenue.

PROJECT:
For this project, you will create three six-second Vine videos, for a total of 18 seconds, resulting in a Vine suite. Each movement will be based on a specified sound source and a specified approach to the stop-and-start edits.

Step 1:
The audio-video source for the first movement is water running steadily from a faucet.
Step 2:
Start with an image of something that rotates and makes sound — a bicycle wheel may be your best bet — and alternate with an image of something static, like a picture of a face in a comic strip, while you make a low droning noise with your voice.
Step 3:
The audio-video source for the third movement is whatever is going on outside a window. Divide the track up into six even sections. The first section should be a wide view out your window. The five subsequent sections should try to focus the center of the camera on one object. The sound is whatever happens to be going on outside your window.
