Keith Rocka Knittel: "Septembr9," 2009
Digital audio file™
Here's a mix I made last week, inspired by the "Pomposelli x Party People" installation and performance in Carl Pomposelli and my adjoining studios. I was closed in Carl's studio where I djed for an audience in my studio, whom I could not see. The audience could view into Carl's studio via a live video feed projected onto the wall in my studio. The audio from my dj set was playing through a p.a. also in my studio, which was installed amongst mini-installations and a projected animation by Carl. Peep holes (or glory holes) and a pin hole camera were cut in the walls between the two studios for direct contact.
The mix consists of loops of songs, overlapped and sculpted to mimic the arcs and dips of a dj club mix but with no apex or nethermost floor. No song plays in its entirety- only in chopped up pieces, some times more recognizable than others. Versions of some emerge, disappear, and revisit the mix in an attempt to represent the fuzziness of time and memory.
It's a roughly thirty minute mix. Sometimes up to five loops are playing at a time.
