Toronto’s Egyptrixx [David Psutka] returns to Night Slugs with his immersive second album “A/B til Infinity” Since his 2011 debut LP “Bible Eyes”, Psutka has been busy with various studio production projects as well as recording and touring with his side-project Hiawatha. His return as Egyptrixx takes the form of a multi-media collaboration with Berlin-based visual artist A N F - Andreas Nicolas Fischer. The project consists of the album, the video for Ax//s and an Audio/Visual live set for the Egyptrixx world tour 2014.
18F44 is a further study based on EDF0 [vimeo.com/43752422], the recursive structure was first extended to three dimensional protrusion based on a regular hexagon as 18F44 demo [vimeo.com/52062612]. In this version, the base regular hexagon is replaced by a group of six intersecting planes to provide more complexity. In addition, I create a more flexible controlling mechanism which allows me to separately play with each child on each level of the structure. You can see processes of “growth”, “mutation”,”protrusion” and “disintegration” in this movie clip demonstration.
The whole visual image is generated real-time in Processing.
My friend and collaborator, Wack Wang [wackwang.com], composed this amazing soundtrack for this piece of work.
