Rise and shine; print three dimensional objects and bury them in the yard…
Standard day here for Noah Wall, designer of sounds and images and clever ideas of all kinds, like this video. Featured are two vignettes from his latest release, Print The Legend, a collection of material left behind after soundtracking a Netflix documentary about the 3D printing industry. These recordings are brief, curious and flexible, as if themselves able to take new shape with every spin. That dynamic is well supported by the album’s cover art. Noah recently told Redefine:
“The collage is made of 3D printing models taken from a primarily open source library. I wanted to use enough models that the individual pieces started to lose their identity, sort of a Wild West depiction of the 3D printing landscape. Also many types. Toys, tools, weapons, organs, plants, naked people, animals, lawn gnomes. Utilities and recreations. I got my head 3D scanned, so that’s in there too. I think the whole thing is beautiful and much like a giant pile of garbage painted blue too. The music is rather varied genre and instrumentation-wise, so I think it fits.”
Natural then—following all this, the music, the printing of one’s own head—that these elements would start moving. First over a set of brilliant Instagram teasers, next through a stack of index card storyboards, and finally today, with “Closed Source & Hot Glue.”
Print The Legend is out now via Driftless Recordings.
