Making It in September 2018

Data Bending with Loui Binns

  • Image for Making It in September 2018


Loui Binns, aka Foetal Zulu, leads September's experimental Making-It workshop showing participants how to work with an image, video and audio file to create different and often unexpected databent outputs. It involves editing the code within a file to create glitches and alterations for artistic effect. 

It's like putting assets into a digital sausage making machine and getting rainbows out the other end. Participants will be looking at databending using a programme called Audacity®. No technical experience is necessary!You are more than welcome to bring your own laptop. 

We do have 10 laptops available, and as the capacity is 20 it is possible to share laptops.You are invited to bring your own image file with you for use during the workshop, the only stipulation is that the file is in a bitmap (.bmp) format. That said, Loui will provide previously recorded audio, imagery and footage for you to experiment with.Loui Binns is a producer of music and visual art under the moniker Foetal Zulu. 

He works in electronic music and digital art incorporating found sounds, soundscapes, abstract /geometric visuals and setting visuals to music.He hosts a bi-monthly event called Hyper Fauna for ambient soundscape music at the Grayston Unity in Halifax and runs an electronic sound system collective called Sonorous Sounds who put on events in Halifax and the wider Yorkshire area.
