Sludge-miming Pophorn prototypes.
We are currently busy giving faces to the Pophorns. Each Pophorn will get a distinct character - a Poppet - that reflects its sound, style and mood. This is an extremely early prototype singing along to its favourite sludge-metal band.
When local VJ-heroes TV-OUT found out about the responsive, visual potential of the poppetised Pophorns they immediately set up a camera rig for incorporating mobile phone graphics in their VJ sets at Swim Fast Club in Malmö, Sweden.
This is really cool since we like to think of the Pophorns as performance tools - visual as well as sonic. One of our favourite examples of this sort of mobile phone usage is the ingenious rock lighter. Phones in the air y’all!
