Bob Jaroc Creates a Different Sort of TV Animation

Bob Jaroc‘s video for Black Moth Super Rainbow’s “The Sticky” was made by “modding a bunch of old b&w TVs, playing the separate parts from the track through them and taping the results,” plus some After Effects. Some readers on Boing Boing have pointed out that the circuit bending technique that Jaroc used is a variation of the Wobble Vision technique. Whatever Jaroc did, the results are mesmerizing.

    Who not just use an oscilloscope?

    The animation didn’t really keep my attention, but I liked the beats.

    reminds me of cartoon I saw last year called sensology. Only this is far more interesting. Very neat! Thanks for sharing.

    Hate to put it this way but it could have been more than it was. Would that have made it more enjoyable to watch? It depends.

    I don’t understand the technique, but that was pretty interesting.

    Pretty cool technique, but gets tiring after about a minute. Mary Ellen Butte and Norman McLaren did experiments like this with an oscilloscope. And it reminds me of the soundtrack in Fantasia and Three Caballeros.
