Polybius ╳ James Houston, Julian Corrie & Bold Yin

Art Blog - James Houston, Julian Corrie, Bold Yin - Empty Kingdom

Animator / director James Houston, music artist Julian Corrie (Miaoux Miaoux) and production studio Bold Yin team up to deliver a swan song to old-school technology in Polybius. Time for some fun nostalgia.

More background info as follows:

“We are submerged in a dry swimming pool. A SEGA Mega Drive, Commodore 64, floppy disk drives and hard drives sing in unison. The unusual ensemble (controlled live via MIDI) are given a last curtain call in a nostalgic farewell to forgotten friends.

 

Video by James Houston:
“I asked Julian Corrie to compose and perform a piece of bespoke music for antiquated hardware that I had turned into instruments then rigged together via MIDI.”
