Animated gig poster

 

Youtube Link here

 

Phil, the bass player, and I usually do posters together. I supply the artwork and he does such incredible work on the typography and pulling the look together (thanks phil). Recently we’ve been bumping a certain look through the posters that we’ve been loving which you can see here. Over the weekend however phil put the whole poster together for the up and coming Ric’s Bar show that is happening during the Valley Fiesta. I was so inspired by the poster I had to animate it.

 

Here is the wonderful artwork phil did up.

 

 

In the video you can hear a new track we are working on. So that means New hunz music coming soon. (and no it’s not 7bit stuff either :P )

Rave Magazine Live Show Review

 

The Hi-Fi – Fri Aug 20

 

Local electronic three-piece Hunz produce a spellbinding set that could easily headline the night. Their soaring melodies and delicate glitchy ambience fill the room and the crowd is practically glowing from the energy of their performance. The sporadic use of a drum machine works well tonight and their newer material explores the dancier side of electronica . . .

Hunz live at the The Hi-Fi Bris

We had an awesome show at The Hi-Fi Bris the other night and we were lucky enough to have NiteShok video a few of the songs. If you didn’t make it out you can now hear and watch us perform some of the set. A big thank you to The Hazards of Swimming Naked for having us along, Niteshok for filming this and The Staff at The Hi-Fi Bris very VERY awesome!

 

 

Real-time video clip for song “All falls down”

 

Some of you might know the history of where “hunz” came from. For those that don’t Hunz was my handle for writing music in the demo scene. The demoscene is a computer art subculture that specializes in producing demos, which are non-interactive audio-visual presentations that run in real-time on a computer. The main goal of a demo is to show off programming, artistic, and musical skills. (wiki).

 

I was involed with serveral demo groups, growing up, that put out a few real-time demos but I’ve never had my music used in a demo being presenting at a party. That is until now. Smash approached me about a week ago to see if he could use my music in a demo he was preparing to enter into Assembly 2010. So I did a remixed version of “All falls down” that helped give a better sense of matching the visual aesthetic.

 

Why is this amazing? Well this runs in real-time on your pc. Think of it as a video game that pushes your machine past the point of fuctioning. It does require Windows and DX9 and a nvidia g260 or better and you can download the file here (80megs). Then extract the contents and run the demo at your screen res to really enjoy the visual wonder of it all.

 

A very big thank you too Carillon & Cyberaid, Fairlight, Smash, Dstop and Louie500. Thank you for putting in the long hours to put this together. I feel like I got the easy part.

 

I am amazed and I thank you again.

 

Also watch out for my soon to be announced chip tune album “7bit hero”. So soon. click here
