Hello Person

Beats, bleeps, and noises bridging the machine/human interface.The track is built from openly licenced loops (Creative Commons by Attribution) that were created as part of Libre Music Challenge #13.

Only loops from the archive are used with no additional material, although some loops have been chopped and processed.This track combines loops from all the people that took part.

The video was made in the same spirit using only open licenced video already available on the web.

Neither the film, or the finished track, would have been possible without people choosing to openly licence their material for re-use. So thank you for doing that. Equally, all the software tools used to create the track and film were free and open source.

Don’t Spread Germs

This video takes an old UK public information film about germs, and mashes it up with a modern animation that covers similar ground, and a fresh soundtrack from The Argent Grub.

I Can’t Breathe

This music track was created as a response to the Black Lives Matter protests of 2020 sparked by the death of George Floyd.
The video was made during Black History Month 2021.

The music track is 8 minutes and 46 seconds long. While we now know that Derek Chauvin knelt on George Floyd’s neck for 1 minute less than was originally reported, 8 minutes and 46 seconds is a time inextricably linked with George’s death.

The track features the names of 108 black men and women who have died at the hands of police.

This is small way of keeping their names alive and raising awareness.

Ardrossan

Ardrossan beach is a sliver of land sandwiched between the water of the Firth of Clyde and a road, the A78, with it’s 60mph speed limit.

There are spectacular views across the water to the Isle of Arran, and the recording captures the lapping of waves, children playing on the beach, and the passing traffic.
