Wow, it's been a while. Here's a quick rundown of what's new and what would have been new if I'd posted it in a timely manner:
I presented a couple experiments. Basically, the intent was to explore how video and audio interact on a couple levels, and see at what point the visuals start to distract from the poem - What is the effect of the poem being read diegetically or nondiegetically? Would timing the rhythm of the video to the rhythm of the poem give a more congruous, less distracting result? Can the video be superficially disparate yet thematically linked to the poem without drawing too much attention to itself?
Additionally, I tried an audio experiment that no one seemed to have anything to say about (except Julia, who totally got it and liked it - thanks Julia! :D) I read my 'threedee glasses' poem in two overlapping tracks, kind of a pun on the 3D experience but with audio - I'll upload that too, you'll see what I mean.
It's pretty clear where I mess up or forget words, if it didn't detract from the experiment I left it in.
Blogger wasn't taking my videos, so I've uploaded them to YouTube.
Seeking pt. 1 (non-diegetic audio, simple, clearly-linked concept)
Seeking pt. 2 (non-diegetic audio, disparate yet thematically linked video)
Threedee Glasses (diegetic audio)
Seeking pt, 1 (brief experiment with rhythm)
Threedee Glasses (audio experiment)
This isn't uploading properly... :P
