MUSIC

MEMORY MACHINE





Memory Machine is Fornax Void's musical interpretation of computer nostalgia. The album was first released in 2009 and has since been published in many different forms. Most of the album is composed minimalist using nothing but wavetable synthesis. Exceptions are "Dreams", containing signals of an oscillating Roland RE-201 Space Echo only, "The Terminator Road", that was recorded with Guitars and Drums, and the Tracks "Time Machine", "Levels" and "Memory Machine", containing heavy sampling, self-built string instruments and experimental editing techniques.

VIDEOS

WINTERMUTE





This video was created with the IBM PC version of 3D Construction Kit a software by Incentive Software from 1991. The software is also known as Virtual Reality Studio. The sequences were captured in DOSBox and later recorded on VHS and routed through different old video manipulation devices, some of them circuit bent. The track was recorded with the vintage frequency modulation synthesizers Yamaha DX21 (1985) and FB-01 (1986). The music track was mastered on old worn-out tape with a Vestax VestaFire 4-Track recorder to get the acoustical aesthetics right to the desired expression.

AND IT'S WAITING





For this video I took footage of Flight Simulator 2 and manipulated it with old video effect units, and mastered everything on VHS. I built some kind of still life in the floor of our office, with a tape deck I used to remix the track, my VHS deck, a TV I found in a thrifts-store, a plastic office plant and an old computer keyboard inside an early 90s keyboard stand I got from a good friend. I played back the edited Flight Simulator video on the VHS deck to the CRT TV and filmed everything using a slow dolly ride. The music is a tape remix of Pizza Problems' track with some additional instruments.
