From the album  Commercial Mouth of Jar Moff released by Pan records in 2013:

This is the Pan promo text belonging to the record:

Commercial Mouth’ is the debut LP from Jar Moff, an Athens based artist working in collage forms. This is his first full-length LP. Both his visual and aural oeuvre take the form of cut up and reformations in the manner of previous PAN stablemates like Joseph Hammer and Ghedalia Tazartes, remodeling the past in order to create something new out of the modern detritus, and nestles in nicely alongside the recent ‘Diversions 1994-1996’ release from Lee Gamble. The result is a baffling yet functioning head-on collision between early plunderphonics and an abstracted futuristic hip hop aesthetic.

BTW: play the video full screen and turn the volume loud!

Today I preordered Leap: a new motion control device which is capable of replacing a mouse if you use a Windows OS on your computer.
For those familiar with sound art, motion controllers to trigger computer interactions are nothing new. In fact, I own several Eowave devices, such as the Eobody2 to trigger and control VSTi’s on my computer using MIDI and hand motions:

But the Leap motion controller extends this concept to PC applications in general. The Leap software is not only capable of recognizing movement on 2D surfaces, but also in 3D. This means it enables you to model 3D objects on your computer using your fingers…

This is the stuff of science fiction movies of the past, like Bladerunner or 2001: A Space Odyssee! Leaf will be delivered to buyers in July.

I can’t wait to get my hands on it..
