Starting in 2000 I began creating short multimedia promotional biographies of Gothic, Industrial, Electronica, EDM, IDM, Noise, Techno, Dark Pop, Electro Punk and Black Metal artists in Macromedia's Director/Shock Wave Format(SWF) and Flash. In 2015 I converted over 200 animations from Flash to HTML5 code and in 2017 I again converted the features to Mpeg4 YouTube Movies. These are my historical archives...
About the author
Welcome back to PocketLoop. I got a dozen bands this quarter to present in music and animated biographical promotions. Let’s start out with the American bands who sent in CDs. From California we have a debut CD by a band called switchfoot. Ha you never know who is going to make it big. Then several demos by Lockwood, Soren and Serious Black. Several outstanding CDs by Hungry Lucy, Blessed Virgin Larry and Kati King whose incredible talent would one day spawn a movie about her character. I can say that as I am writing this 8 years after.
The remainder of this quarters offerings are international. First a French/German duo, La Floa Maldita. From Italy I offer two bands. First, Blank returns to PocketLoop, and then new comers KLIMT 1918. really nice sound. Darrin that Canadian who moved to Germany and puts out music under the name PSYCHE has submitted another CD. After interviewing him, he seems like an old friend to me. Finally from Finland I offer Rain Paint. sooo scary good! Enjoy
