Time Minus One – A Space Odyssey Mix

Posted by Jon, onehumanbeing on December 29, 2010

Welcome to a new sound collage adventure from UFOverdriver.

This is a densely-layered space odyssey that involves new and experimental techniques in sound collage creation… headphones are recommended for optimum immersion.

Listen: Time Minus One: A Space Odyssey Mix

Part I – The Launch

Our journey begins with a three track group of collages composed of original recorded material by UFOverdriver mixed alongside a loop from the classic Sheep by Pink Floyd, which is joined in track three with a loop from Aztec Camera’s version of Jump.

Overlaid on the tracks are recordings from various Apollo missions, a speech by Sen. Barack Obama on the campaign trail, short clips from Wall Street and Star Wars Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and other stuff…

The overall direction of The Launch is to reflect on the promises that were presented to us, the voters, by Senator Barack Obama while on the campaign trail in early 2008.

Part II – The Space Odyssey

12 Minutes and 44 seconds into the collage The Space Odyssey begins…

The next 6 tracks were constructed using the audio from the film 2001: A Space Odyssey, which I downloaded from YouTube in thirteen parts of approximately ten and a half minutes each.

I took the audio from selected parts (tracks 4 through 6 used parts 12, 11 , 9, 13, and 1 – while tracks 7 through 9 used parts 10, 5, 6, 8, and 7 – see graphic below) and stacked them in layers in my mixer. Then I played around with the volume of the various layers while applying various effects to create “chance” loops of sounds.

Graphic Below: The “mix view” from Adobe Audition 3, the program I use to create my sound collages. The area displayed shows the two “stacks” of 2001: A Space Odyssey audio clips, with the volume control levels for each clip.

Included in The Space Odyssey is several extensive sound clips from philosopher Alan Watts. I offer no opinion at this point on Alan Watts ideas and concepts, I just liked the sound of his voice and the pacing of his speech. You can find out more about Alan Watts here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Watts.

Part II – The Space Odyssey is deliberately and delightfully trippy – for best results try listening to this mix with headphones on…

Abducted by Aliens…

Some people might have been wondering where I’ve been lately… maybe abducted by aliens or something?

In a way I have been, as the last week was taken over by this project and the ideas that it plays with…

About The Video

This is a sound collage visualscape taking you on a journey into the world of space alien true believers, Area 51, UFO conspiracy theories and shadow governments…

Most of the video material used in this project was taken from found videos and are about real events or real people…

I appropriated them, altered them, sampled some audio clips, and created a new story for your auditory and visual pleasure…

Enjoy!

Definition

5150 – from Wikipedia

Section 5150 is a section of the California Welfare and Institutions Code (specifically, the Lanterman-Petris-Short Act or “LPS”) which allows a qualified officer or clinician to involuntarily confine a person deemed to have a mental disorder that makes them a danger to him or her self, and/or others and/or gravely disabled. A qualified officer, which includes any California peace officer, as well as any specifically designated county clinician, can request the confinement after signing a written declaration. When used as a term, 5150 (pronounced “fifty-one-fifty”) can informally refer to the person being confined or to the declaration itself.
