I edited this Noisey Meets feature about Dan Deacon’s recent performance at Celebrate Brooklyn, treating the audience as an instrument, his interactive smartphone app and Wham City Lights.

After Hours is a series of ephemeral installations and performances hidden amongst the Times Square district’s diverse venues, recorded for radio and video dissemination. Taking advantage of the twilight moment before midnight, and a surreal array of different settings nestled throughout the Times Square area, the Times Square Alliance and the Clocktower Gallery & ARTonAIR.org come together to offer tantalizing glimpses of these spaces as creative catalysts. Pairing musicians and artists with each of these unique contexts, the artists create work specifically designed to draw on the neighborhood’s history as a social and artistic melting pot. The fleeting nature of these late night experiences highlights the power found in taking the synchronicity and spontaneity of an After Hours encounter beneath the bright lights, and using it to inspire and indicate future audio, video, and performance work.

The Pieces are fading
A heart deformed by waiting
The thief of time is erasing you
Those people those faces, deep in my mind
I hear them parading me tonight.
Am I wasting time if you’re in my mind
While the moon is ripe above me
Well it’s a fine line, yea it’s a fine line
Look inside spy the clues
Candle light across the loom
The feeling comes and chases truth…

I used randomly generated data to edit this video of Caged Animals performing “Too Much Dark” for Fast Food Music Video 2: Not Knowing, Adaptability, The Unified Field. The number of the cuts and the sources were dictated by a data generating patch, leaving me with control over the timing of the cuts. I also elected to make the video monochrome.
This exercise in music video making involved applying chance operations to all aspects of a deconstructed production process. Editing was also subject to randomization in a similar fashion, based on the number of video sources recorded.

Here’s what director Andy Capper had to say:
I shot it at the Niagra Bar on 7th and A because the neon sign from the cover of the record hangs there.
That corner of New York is really significant in L.E.S hardcore / punk history and I guess it was sung about in “New York Crew” by Judge. That track is one of mine and Turbo lead singer’s Tony Sylvester’s favourite songs ever; I met Tony through hardcore about 20 years ago and we’ve been best friends ever since.
