SAMPLE BASED VIDEO
2844 still images were not harmed for this video
While strawling around taking photographs at the Schmiede 08, i talked to Klaus Mähring about his project. A portable sample-based music controller.
Taking the sample-based approach on making music, I decided to adapt this concept to realise a music video in the same style. Therefor i started taking sequences of still images (approx. 150) from Klaus, building his "instrument". In Final Cut I put the duration of each picture to 1frame (1/25 sec), faking the process of video displaying. These sequences of images I exported to short movies and used them as my samples for the music video.
The song "wueste" by drama&stern was created using a similar but smaller prototype of that instrument, Klaus built at the Schmiede in 2007.
In this song samples and loops are used and this structure fits perfectly to the idea of a sample-based video.
Sometime later drama&stern played a concert where i photographed them in the same style and added the photographs to the final video.
