Post SINKERR Fractal Vid Doubleheader
I have a double header today of Father's Day fractal animation music videos with the music of SINKERR (Sink + Kerr), which is Jayesskerr and me together with Sticks, and keys, and guitars. I usually play a bass role with my Railboard, and then Scott does lead with 6-string guitar and 12-string Stick (and violins), and I usually do keys, and together we do the drums. Sometimes I'll do some rhythm guitar and Scott will do keys. Sometimes I produce, and sometimes him. We have 3 or 4 good progressive rock instrumental tunes now ("Instru-metal"), and a couple of tunes that didn't make the cut, and I'm sure we'll do a few more here soon.

The forum has been kind of dead and I was gonna post these in my fractal video forum postings (Temples of Sphere Inks) where I should be talking about Wonder Woman, but since these are Sticky tunes, I thought "why segregate myself over at the Forum Ghetto, when these tunes are (somewhat) Showcase-able?" And the Forum posts don't show up at Tapatalk, which eliminates about half of you. So here we go!

First off:

(4K) Rectangular Reflections--"Spirit Chewality"--3D Fractal Animation Music Video
4K Video: Made with Mandelbulber v 1.21 OpenCL and mclarekin-custom formula "MBox Benesi T1."

Music: A rock progressive original tune by Stephen Sink and Scott Kerr (SINKERR) with guitar, piano, drums, and Chapman Stick. Produced by Stephen Sink.

*********************************************
And SINKERR tune/fractal video #2:

A-Box Beamer--"A Monstrous Thing of Beauty"--3D FAMV
More experimentation with primitives: the box, with the reflectivity turned to 200%, and a range of X, Y, and Z axis size changes. Plus a new OpenCl formula from Graeme (mclarekin) for v 1.21. I have a 4K version in the works, but here's the 1080p HD version.

A-Box Beamer
Video made with Mandelbulber OpenCL v 1.21 with a custom mclarekin-formula called "ABox Scale 2 C-Pixel 2."

"A Monstrous Thing of Beauty"
Music is a progressive rock instrumental ("Instru-Metal") by Scott Kerr & Steve Sink (SINKERR), played on Chapman Stick, guitar, violin, keys, and drums. Produced by Scott Kerr (Jayesskerr).

REALLY like "A Beautiful Thing of Monstrous" (sorry, couldn't help myself) Dig the distorto bass@ 3:18. Love the fractals and reflective "monoliths" (2001 A Space Oddessy). Still like the idea of having that stuff as a "light show" and having the band wearing blue screen...(and SINKERR is a great band name. First album title: "SINKERR/SWIM") (yes, you have my permission to use it!)

Yes, "Monstrous" has is fun to the extreme, a multi-media and multi-instrumental experience generated right here on our Stick forum by spontaneous collaboration. I love the fractals and notice new visual algorhythms in artful performance. Those emerging cobalt blue rectangles with mirrored sides are fascinating - new moving geometry added to the art.

Scott's blazing lead guitar makes it a thrilling ride for the senses and he tosses off those long legato 64th note passages as if the rhythm must be driven by a guitar pick. I think there's great merit in getting back to basic rhythm and structure on Stick while owning this other skill, that is, wailing through chord changes on rock lead guitar.

The 2001 Space Odyssey monoliths were exactly what I had in mind with the cubes. Such a simple shape, yet instantly iconic. And then I thought it would be cool to make them a perfect reflective surface, and then, just to see if the amp goes to 11, I put in 200% reflectivity, so that it reflects back twice the brightness of the thing it reflects. That makes it look like a moving door into another fractal world. Or just "Mirror Monoliths." (Must use that for next title!)

Anyway, like all new techniques, each new technique and trick must be overused until mastered, and then tastefully integrated into the overall style. I'm still at the novelty, over-user stage right now with the reflective blocks. I just graduated to them from reflective balls, and it was reflective water before that. Then I tried using an inside-out reflective box, to quite good effect. Next are planes, as in slices of flat space. But those are just really skinny boxes, which I've just done.

The 4K version of this will be done tomorrow, and I'll share here.

And SINKERR/SWIM is an awesome title for an album! How clever!

Thanks so much for stopping by and having some fun with these fractal music vids, Emmett! And Scott is my (guitar) hero, and a hard-working Stick student as well. If I had his shreddery, I'd integrate it into my Sticking and rocking out too! As it is, for me, it's another tool in the tool chest of creativity. And collaboration around the Sticks has been very personally and creatively rewarding to me, in meeting you fine people and rocking it out together.

I'll have a 4K version of this last fractal one, with my first Stick song, PainStickingly, which is almost done baking in the render farm.

Cheers!

(4K) A-Box Lava Beamer--"PainStickingly"--3D Fractal Animation Music Video

4K version of my latest one, with slightly different coloring, a different background, and a different song. But the same "Mirror Monoliths." This song is my Chapman Stick and Piano Instru-Metal called "PainStickingly," my very first Chapman Stick studio creation last year. It still needs more mastering/mixing work, and the distortion on the lead would be changed if I got back into this to "fix" it. Which I probably will!
