I have previously written about damaging film and the weird effects you can get from ‘film soup’ (it even got on The Guardian!). It isn’t a very difficult process but it does require a few ingredients and an open minded photo lab.
An even easier technique is burying your film in the…

This week, THE WANDERING WOLF features legendary comic/ author/ podcaster; Yoni’s roll model, media titan, Marc Maron!
Episode 29- Marc Maron. Yoni gets a ride from a guy he meets on twitter over to Marc’s Glendale office. After interrupting a ten man writing session, he and Marc get into a healthy discussion about Marc’s TV show, podcast, and stand up career, offending loved ones as a self-expository “entertainer”, the reason why people respond to his work, and success after humility. Are we good?
Studio Creations interview with Daniel Miller:
“Having recently installed Mute Record’s new London based studio we were delighted to spend some time talking with Chairman and Founder Daniel Miller. The purpose of the interview was to chat about all things UAD2, however, we hope you’ll agree this is a fascinating insight into one of the industry’s pioneering figures. Daniel freely talks about his role as Producer and more frequently these days as A&R man. Mute artists including Depeche Mode, Nick Cave, Goldfrapp & more…. Daniel gives advice to aspiring artists too.”
I’ve been fighting for now 14 years to try to do this, to make all the subway turnstiles make music. I want to make every station in New York have a different set of dominant keys, so that people when they grow up, later on in life, will hear a piece of music and be like, “Oh that’s Union Square.”
So when you go through the turnstiles, there would be a thing that would make a beep of a certain note. And it would have a random note generator that would be based on a percentage, so that the root note would be a higher percentage of going off, then the third, then the fifth. And during rush hour in the bigger stations, it would hopefully make a really beautiful piece of music.
Each line would be a piece. The green line would go through different chords and when they intersected with other lines that would change that station.

"To know ahead of time what you’re looking for means you’re then only photographing your own preconceptions, which is very limiting and often false.
I certainly wouldn’t criticise a photographer who works completely without plan, and photographs that to which he instinctively responds. In fact, a very good way to work it to open yourself as wide as you can, just to be like a piece of unexposed, sensitised material.
You force yourself to watch and wait. You accept all the discomfort and disharmony.”
