Popcorn – 2 bit video

Some festive, unplugged 70s strangeness: my cover of Popcorn, played on the sampled carillon, with its own pair of binary videos. I fell for the charms of 1-bit video when I was updating an installation that makes music by tracking butterflies in flight.  I’d been experimenting with vision algorithms that reduce video to a simplified binary image (i.e. pure black and white, with no grayscale).

This version reduces a moving image to pure black and white blocks (with no grayscale).

This reduces blocks to edges
