Tesseract Out / Funky Night

On-Hold Music Springs Vague Self-Help


I was on hold with a local car company, when suddenly I realized something.

The Other Wheel (Space Beats Video)


Music: "A Mix of the Best of Music for Art of the Other Wheel" (2015/2021). Video: It's a spinning, semi-transparent color wheel just making its way through space, what's up. The songs were originally commissioned for use as background entertainment at an art show titled "Art of the Other Wheel", which took place September 25th & 26th, 2015 at The Pharmacy Gallery & Art Space in Springfield, Illinois. I've stirred them up here into one mix.
Primitive Culture [GET YOUR BEHIND BE KIND Music Video]


Obviously this is heavily in favor of the rights of nonhuman animals, who I believe are individuals and should generally be considered sentient. Most video footage in this is public domain, including the moments from the movie It's a Wonderful Life. No copyright infringement intended. The music is "Primitive Culture", a song from my 2020 EP Got 2 Rock. I sample the movie Star Trek: First Contact in it. Marina Sirtis delivers the refrain in reference to 21st century human culture being "primitive". (Okay, that's a big slam on all of us, people.) No copyright infringement intended here either. This video is public domain and may be used without permission from me for any purposes. Please share. Zoochosis is real and too common. Look it up. Just because you don't know about it (yet) doesn't mean it's not happening. Get and stay informed. EMPTY CAGES WORLDWIDE!

Minstrel
by Bridget Foley Russell

Give me a song
I feel lost
Give me a song
I want to be transported
Give me a song
I can breathe
Give me a song
I am surrounded by silence
Give me a song
I need reassurance
Give me a song
I crave your touch
Give me a song
I am complete
Give me a song
I am home.

Scary Dance Music (Video Album)


This is a playlist of videos I made in 2018 using a ton of crazy public domain stuff I found. These were commissioned for and projected at the 2018 Dark Arts show, which was currated by Staunzie Grady and took place at Arlignton's Restaurant in Springfield, Illinois.

Real Dinosaur Sounds


I went back in time 150 million years and recorded this with binaural microphones. Two sauropods are talking to each other across a lake while many other dinosaurs occasionally call out. Three at once start out the recording. Listen with headphones to get the full effect.

The Wrath of Genesis Part 1 - The Reliant


It's not completely lifeless. That's all. Cheap, I know. (If this is blocked for you, it's not my bad.)

Light of the Sacral Cave


In silent form, this video was used in a projector installation during a show of women’s fabric art. The show, titled Draw Near, featured the works of two artists (Wendy Allen and Carol Bridges) as well as a sacred space by artist Chery Miller. The show took place April 22nd and 23rd, 2016 at The Pharmacy Gallery & Art Space in Springfield, Illinois. The audio in this video was also commissioned for the show. It was played in the background during the event along with other long passages of ambient music. Thus, this video is a sort of "best of" Draw Near.

Matter of Information


Animation and music by yours truly. Animation produced partly using Starry Night Pro 6. Song title: "Lives of the Bloated Gas Giant Suns" (2007). Video produced in 2014. The scene is actually what it would sort of be like to stand on Triton and watch Neptune in the sky--sped up over the course of two months Earth-time, of course.
