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
It's been a great year so far. Looking forward to graduating from the University of Alaska with a BA in Journalism but a snafu in the system (no instructors for a couple of higher level courses I needed in the Art department) has meant that I will not have an official graphic design specialty for my degree. Whatever, I have all the art classes to qualify for admittance into the Bachelor of Fine Arts program if I want to continue for a third degree.
Well, once again the label WTII records has supplied half of the featured artists. The remainder is a demo from Texas, and a couple CDs from Portland and NYC. All excellent and worthy of your time.
Over the folowing two years, a virtual freeze-up of new submissions would mean an end of new features for Loopzine.tv. Instead, the web site was modified so it would branch to different pages depending on what platform you are using to view it (i.e. Android phone, tablet, PC or goggle TV). In 2013, because Apple does not support FLASH it was decided that everything published under Pocket Loop would be transferred from Flash to HTML5 and it would be one home page that would work equally well on phones tablets or desktop PCs.
Finally over 2018 all animations were coverted from HTML5 to MPEG video hosted by You Tube.
RG Geiger has been a visual artist since a very young age.
His creativity with technology began with the Commodore 64 where he learned machine language and BASIC programming.
Next, he utilized that knowledge to explore the ATARI ST and was published in the first edition of COMPUTES! First Book of ATARI ST.
Then moving on to a Windows PC he learned Macromedia Director to created CD-ROM presentations and then Macromedia Flash (later bought by Adobe) to create this Ezine.
Since then his concentration has been various web technologies to maintain and expand his internet presence.
He has a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Public Communication from the University of Alaska with an emphasis in graphic design and a Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology from Penn State.
Under the name Bytet he released a vanity CD of original Electro Gothic music and has appeared on 18 International darkwave compilations in the 90s from France, Italy, Canada and the United States.
