I Dream of Wires: The Modular Synthesizer Documentary


http://m.matrixsynth.com/2011/10/i-dream-of-wires-matrixsynth-present. html

For the next 30 weeks, IDOW and MATRIXSYNTH will be co-presenting a modular synthesizer photo of the week contest. The photos will be judged by Robert Fantinatto (IDOW director), Jason Amm (IDOW producer, Ghostly International recording artist Solvent), and MATRIXSYNTH. Every Sunday night, from Oct 30 to May 20, the latest photo of the week winner will be posted on MATRIXSYNTH. At the end of the 30 weeks, the Top5 photos will be selected.

What do the 'photo of the week' winners get?:
- Complimentary 'I Dream of Wires' DVD (upon film's release).
- Not only will your photo be posted to MATRIXSYNTH, you will also get an accompanying 50 words + 1 website link, to describe & promote your musical/photographic work.
- The photo + accompanying text/URL will also be included on the 'I Dream Of Wires' DVD release, as part of a bonus-feature photo gallery.
- Top5 winners: One of these photos will be selected as an official IDOW T-shirt design, and all 5 will be printed as a postcard set. T-Shirts and postcard sets are available as part of IDOW's IndieGoGo fund raising packages. Top5 winners will also receive a complimentary T-Shirt + postcard set.

Rules and considerations:
- Maximum 3 submissions per person. 1 photo submission per email. Please note that all submissions will remain in the pool of photos, for consideration throughout the contest.
- All digital files must be 5 megabytes or smaller, must be in JPEG or JPG format, and must be at least 1,600 pixels wide (if a horizontal image) or 1,600 pixels tall (if a vertical image).
- Modular synthesizer hardware only. Semi-modular synth hardware is also acceptable as long as there is evidence of some cross-patching.
- Photos will be judged on artistic/aesthetic merit - not on how large/rare the modular is or who it belong(s)/(ed) to.

People are invited to submit photos, via email to modular@idreamofwires.org. You must include the following information in the body of your email submission:
(1) Your name / photo credit.
(2) Please copy and paste the following text: 'I confirm that I am the photographer or the holder of the copyrights of this property. I am allowing 'I Dream of Wires: The Modular Synthesizer Documentary' and MATRIXSYNTH use of this property.'
(3) Title of the photo (optional).
(4) Brief bio and description of your musical &/or photographic work. 50-words maximum (optional).
(5) URL (optional)."

wait, this is supposed to be a photo of just the synth or it can be a wider setting, for example a studio/stage and people around?

We have no specific guidelines relating to this.

So let me ask... have some people here submitted photos? They're not exactly flowing in. The main reason I find this odd is because we've been getting 3 or 4 people a week randomly posting photos of their modular to our Facebook page, and now that we are actually offering something for it, we get next to nothing. I just hope it is not a problem with the email account or something. If you sent a pic for this contest via email, can you please PM me?

I can only speak for myself, but I'm guessing these reasons might apply to a lot of people:

a) the contest is 30 weeks long, so I have plenty of time to come up with an idea for a shot.
b) the prize is exposure for your website, and I don't have a website to promote (yet).

Right now all I have is a domain name and some ideas. The exposure thing is a cool prize, so on the off chance that I win, I'd like to have something ready to "expose".

+1 on both counts.

And some personal stupidity on my end: I lost most of my hi-res modular photos because I resized them for the 'net and didn't save the original. d'oh!
s o l v e n t
Well these reasons all make sense - cool. I just was wondering whether maybe it was of no interest to anyone. We literally have had 3 submissions so far... Keep in mind that based on this, your chances of winning early on are much higher!

matrixsynth is great and all but it's already just a gargantuan flow of photographs, the lower editorial threshold of which seems to be 'anything synth related sold on ebay'. It's the all-consuming amoeba of the synth blog world. A little editorial would go a long way. That doesn't diminish the good intention, just probably explains the lack of entries due to the context.

Well, I think that most artists would benefit somewhat from having their bio/URL posted to MATRIXSYNTH, at the top, for approx 12 hours... But even if that wasn't the case, the contest winners do also get their photo + credit/bio/URL included on the DVD, which will likely be seen by a large segment of the modular synth community..... Also, for the record, the submissions have definitely picked up. We currently have a pool of approx 30 photos to choose from. That's a lot less than I'd have expected, but definitely up from week1, where we literally chose from 3 submissions. Luckily those 3 submissions were very good - Nordvargr's winning photo is really ace; the fisherman pic really gives it a unique charm.

PotW is on my opinion a great additional way to check some more curated synth pr0n.

IDOW & MATRIXSYNTH Modular Pic of the Week - Week 27 Contest Winner!

Our twenty-seventh winner of the Modular Pic of the Week contest goes to Atomic Shadow (photo credit Rod Mitchell), for his 'Lab b/w.'

Atomic Shadow uses a variety of vintage and modern electronic equipment to craft unique sonic sculptures and broadcast them directly from yesterday's world of tomorrow.

For more info on Atomic Shadow, check out his record label's website: http://www.hollowsunrecords.co.uk

We'd like to give a big thanks and congratulations to Atomic Shadow for his submission!

NOTE: Originally we weren't sure whether this should qualify as modular synthesizer gear - but we decided to go with it, as a sort of proto-modular set-up. Read MATRIXSYNTH's post for details (those are his words):

IDOW & MATRIXSYNTH Modular Pic of the Week - Week 28 Contest Winner!

Our twenty-eighth winner of the Modular Pic of the Week contest goes to Edmund Klaus (photo credit ChinasArt Photography), for this untitled photo.

Edmund Klaus (Monobot) is a producer/composer from Karlsruhe, Germany. Monobot experiments with, and modifies synthesizers, modulars, sequencers, and software in search of the perfect live setup. The goal is to sequence and create music completely live with sound generated mostly through analog gear. This suitcase is part of the concept.

Check out Monobot's music on his Soundcloud page: http://soundcloud.com/monobot

We'd like to give a big thanks and congratulations to Edmund Klaus and ChinasArt Photography for their submission!

IDOW & MATRIXSYNTH Modular Pic of the Week - Week 29 Contest Winner!

Our twenty-ninth winner of the Modular Pic of the Week contest goes to Zeitdehner, for his 'TipTop Audio Z8000 matrix sequencer close-up.'

Zeitdehner brings sonic abstractions created exclusively on modular synthesizers. The approach is to use no multi tracking techniques, instead capturing the patch live, as it is, in real time. This is to retain the spontaneity and the live nature of the work, with all the idiosyncrasies of the methodology.

For more info on Zeitdehner, check out his blog:

We'd like to give a big thanks and congratulations to Zeitdehner for his submission!
