A small handful of individuals have walked this musical path alongside me since near inception, and Null.dll is one of them. I’ve seen many artists friends come and go, both through this site and in my neck of the woods. A small amount have not only continued to create, but have continued to grow in their production quality and individual style. This fellow local producer out of the Seattle area is one of those people, quietly and steadily still on track. Back in January of 2012, my label 7 Deadly Records celebrated it’s second release, a single called “Certainty” by Null.dll. I followed this with a remix, which was the first complete re-imagination of a track I felt confident enough to put out there, as I was just getting the hang of Ableton. Here we are 4 years later, and I receive this new original track from my friend and label mate called “Pace”. It’s a privilege that after all these years, my artistic outlets are still holding to a certain quality level, where artists seek the label and blog for support. You won’t find me writing or posting about anything through these avenues that I don’t 100% love at the time. Friends or not, if I’m not totally down, I don’t lift it up. I’m super pleased with this short new track, and I’ve gotten word there’s an expanded release on the way. Who knows, you may see the finished product on a 7 Deadly release, or through Disco Droppings, who now does free releases when the energy is proper. Cheers to you Null.dll! This is a pleasure.

Last time I talked about Beeple on Disco Droppings, it was August of last year. He put out a free Creative Commons licensed VJ pack called “four.color.process”. Once again, the very generous Beeple of the Brainfeeder crew is giving more shit away! When I say “more shit”, I mean resolume pack one; 10 ultra sleek HD VJ clips that I would LOVE to have behind me during DJ sets. Each clip in this teaser video has a song accompanying it; music from MSZ, Dayggs and Donny And The Robot stood out to me most. 

This clips come to you via Resolume, a VJ software company based in The Netherlands. Since 2002, they have been a tool for live VJ’ing and audiovisual performances.

Some of you may recall my past interview with the very talented Beeple (Brainfeeder). His most recent project empowers VJ’s (aka visual jockeys, aka the dude controlling visuals at shows) with four.color.process; a free pack containing 10 clips of a similar theme. Use these Creative Commons licensed clips to amp up your next VJ sets. Under this license, clips can be edited to your liking for any/all commercial and non-commercial purposes. Got nutz. The “four.color.process” link contains all of the Cinema4D project files used to make these clips, plus Adobe Illustrator files used to make some of the textures and similar graphics.

Thought this would be a nice Sunday post. After an eventful weekend, sit back, and marvel at the visual world of Beeple. He’s recently been working with Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label and has a huge collection of videos online. Here are a few of my favorites along with his interview for Disco Droppings. 

 

DD Is your day job a necessary fuel for your creativity? Being in a more constrained environment, and then having your energy explode out when it’s time for personal projects..

B mmm I feel like right now I’d like to keep personal and business as separate as possible. That may change in the future but for now it seems to be at a good balance. They are both very different at the moment… One I have almost no creative control over, and one I have absolute creative control over.

DD When you look at some of the videos made from your Cinema 4D open source files, which have really connected with you? 

B There are so many sweet examples here are a few:

 

DD I’m quite fond of deadmau5 and his larger than life presentation as an artist. What specific visuals did you make for him?

B I did pieces of a bunch of songs, but here is a song where I did all of the visuals/editing for..

 

DD If you could interview Chris Cunningham, what would you ask him? 

B Good question! I have absolutely no clue what I’d ask him.  Maybe I’d ask him what music he’s into, what good films he’s seen lately…any other directors or shit he’s feeling at the moment.

DD What’s the most encouraging thing someones said about your work?

B Oh my god, far too many kind words have been wasted on my work!! I honestly feel like people’s standards are too low these days ;]

DD I think your really really funny, I’m having  a lot of fun going through these videos on your youtube channel. You’ve given me an endless amount of videos to share with friends. When you want to laugh really hard, where do you go?

B ummm, talking with friends is actually what gets me laughing more than anything. There’s not a ton of shows that I find like, laugh out loud funny. Sometimes the occasional meme on the internet will make me laugh, but usually it’s joking around with close friends.

 

DD Would you ever consider making some sort of animated show? Some of these short stories look like they belong on Adult Swim, I’d love to see some Beeple on there.

B I would love to be on there. I’m a huge fan of Tim and Eric!!

DD How do you plan on pushing yourself as an artist, going into 2012?

B Well I’m probably going to doing a much more challenging project everyday, starting Jan. 1st, which may or may not be a success. It will certainly require more time each day so we’ll see. Either way I’m sure I’ll learn a ton and grow a tad :]
