2012 Apocalypse Not!

Synthpocalypse update: ‘Mid-century electronica’ artist Atomic Shadow (Rod Mitchell) created this ‘soundtrack for the Mayan inspired 2012 non-event.’

Technical details below:

It features EMW-200, DotCom, SSL (DDVCO! Thank you Mrs. Shadow and Merry Christmas), STG, Krisp1 devices. It also makes use of an Eico sine wave generator with various effects including some pedals on the floor. It is a live improvisation captured from two angles.

The final film was created from my raw footage by filmmaker Jeff Gustafson using stock footage from atomic bomb films of the 50s. His was the genius idea to run the bombs backwards, thus underlining the NOT part of the title.

See you all in 2013!
