Happy ... !

The twelfth drawing in my series of "Audible Drawings" is another homage to Throbbing Gristle and the Gristleism - this time playing track number 3, "Twenty Jazz Funk Greats"! The drawing shows the shadow of the Gristleism, where, as usual, the red part is where the device touched the paper during the drawing.

You may think I've uploaded my drawing upside down, but nope - this is how I've drawn it. (Look at the grass shadows in the previous posts - they're shown upside down!).

Here is a two minute mp3 excerpt of the recording - the complete CD length is 46 minutes, with variable pitch settings on the Gristleism, but always the same track.

This is my way to wish everybody - to use Chris Carter's words -
"Happy Gristlemas"!

You make me wish I could hear - but I can't so no use complaining. Never heard of the Gristle thing but I love how you always push the boundaries, merge the outputs - expression is just that, internal and external. Must go and gristle up some lunch.

Très bien ces dessins mais comment fais tu pour dessiner les ombres sans être gêner par l'ombre de ta main?
J'aime beaucoup l'ambiance des sons.

Hi Sheila,
Thanks for your comment - sorry for the late reply. You must have gristled up several lunches since then...

Merci également pour ton commentaire et la question.
Effectivement c'est un peu de l'acrobatie. J'essaie plus ou moins de me positionner face au soleil, en sorte que la pointe du crayon sort suffisemment de l'ombre de ma main. Ce n'est pas toujours évident de trouver la bonne position (sans bouger l'herbe, dont je veux dessiner les ombres aussi...)
