stAllio! - on the DLL
stAllio!’s triumphant return to the world of sonified data! once again, stAllio! plunges deep into his hard drive and listens to the data — image files, executables, and link libraries alike are converted to sound for his review. the choicest bits of data are then meticulously assembled into music: glitchy melodies, skittery rhythms, and thunderous beats emerge from the digital noise. you could call it IDM (interpreted data music), dirty 8-bit, or glitch-hop. stAllio! used to call it databent music, but these days prefers the simpler term data sound.
this is stAllio!’s first full-length release in the data sound style (his label debut, dissonance is bliss!, and 2004’s true data 12”, were both EPs) and his first release as a pay-as-thou-wilt bandcamp download. so stream it online, download it for free if you’re feeling cheap, or even chip in a few bucks for your music the way people used to — but whatever you do, don’t sleep on this!

hmmm…i’m not really sure how the ghost frames work, looking at your tutorial now. but i do get that effect or something similar to it, sometimes. mostly when i go from gif -> mov/mp4.
we’ll go over it in more detail on saturday, but you invoke ghost frames by scanning through your video in reverse. it doesn’t just work on any file, though; it has to be “haunted” so to speak… that’s the mysterious part.
