Octo is the ultimate master on the audio mix. With suction cups covering the underside of each of his eight arms, Octo is able to make the best song selections and manipulate playback in response to the crowd. Octo also arrives at each soundclash equipped with his own sound system.
I saw the Rollins Band for the first time as a teenager in 1992. I went to the afternoon all-ages show. The show was mesmerising. Pulverising. No strobes. No coloured lights. Just the band. The Rollins Band, grinding out a sonic-fury under white work-lights. I kept the flyer.
An interesting approach to an anti-graffiti community service announcement by a local City Council. I’m curious if the outside of the bus is the most effective location for this kind of message. Would the outside of the bus be seen by the intended audience of this message. Are the target audience more likely to be inside the bus? Perhaps locating the community service announcement outside the bus ensures the message is exposed to as many people as possible.
I didn’t see inside the bus, but I reckon this kind of message (framed in the format that it’s warning against) could also be placed inside the bus and perhaps be more likely be seen by the intended audience.
“What we plan for the use of something is not necessarily how people will use it and we don’t necessarily dictate how they use it. We open it up and we hope for the best and a lot of the times we are surprised.”
What surprised me the most was that someone wanted to use to my photograph at all, let alone for a for a completely different purpose. It’s likely the friendly request to use my photograph by the co-author of the book would not have occurred if I had not been sharing my work out in the open. Sharing this way allowed my photograph to be easily discovered by others and helped to create what Alan Levine calls a potential energy for happy accidents to happen.
