How to make a Non-Objective Fluxpoem

A Non-Objective Fluxpoem is composed of the negative and positive spaces of letters constructed into a composition whose meaning and enjoyment rests in the visual rythmns and movement of the resultant relationships of the shapes and spaces. Anyone can make a Non-Objective Fluxpoem . Any font can be used in the making of this type of a fluxpoem and the change in the font type will open new possibilities of expression.

Non-Objective Fluxpoems are a great way to express your deepest non-verbal thoughts and make wonderful works of art for your walls or presents for friends and family.

]

As a score:

option a. Take letters, chop them up into bits. Arrange into an abstract composition. (example above)

option b. Take a sheet with letters on it. Cut sheet into squares that each have aproximately one half of a letter on it. Arrange parts randomly into a grid. (example below)

another red circle with nothing in it

emit podcast #2: Hare!



This piece was prompted by "Hare Christmas" a tone poem/joke/audio piece by my good old friend and performance artist Hilario Alvarez from "Oficina de Ideas Libres". His voice was used as the only source material, and was processed using ixi software's amazing grainBox.



And, btw, you are aware of ixi software's audio tools, aren't you?

((emit)) podcast #1: Escalator



((emit))

#1: Escalator



One of a long series of demos and experiments I produced in summer-fall 2004. The idea was to construct soundscapes built on recordings of underground musicians in Madrid's metro.

This was one of the most successful experiments in the series.... Me, a microphone, a busker playing a clarinet (kind of soloing), and a strange fuzziness in my brain (it was 8 in the morning, I seem to recall).



Will probably rescue some other pieces in the series, as time - and bandwith - allow.
