SWL007 - THE THIRD MIND - PART 2

RENNIE FOSTER // SNOWSKULL

 

The Third Mind is a collaborative project comprising of music artists Jauge, Morris Cowan and OWLS alongside visual artist SnowSkull.

The project is influenced by the ‘cut-up’ technique (or découpé in French), a Dadaist literary technique where existing text is cut-up and rearranged to create a new output. Although this technique can be traced back to the 1920’s, the creation of ‘Consequences’ breathes new life into this format by overlaying the technique to an electronic music and visual arts partnership.

The name comes directly from this setup: 'Third' – relating to the three music artists involved ‘Mind’ - relating to Sleep / Walk / Listen and SnowSkull's artwork for the partnership.

The project now enters its second phase, featuring a beautiful counter vision by Rennie Foster:

To some especially shamanistic DJs, the dance floor is the sacred circle. Tribal ritual is no stranger to the practiced DJ who eschews the superficial for the spiritual path through music and magick.

With each artwork for the remix series I intended to change the elements in relation to the song. Colour was used within each variation to highlight the different moods and ambience, whilst shapes signified textures that we used in a similar way to how a producer would use stems.
