A new essay on the importance of non-verbal intelligence.

I've just uploaded an essay I wrote in September for presentation at the Faculty of Creative Arts, University of Wollongong, Postgraduate Week.  This is a time when all the staff and faculty at FCA do talks about their work.  I decided to do a talk about the importance of non-verbal modes of expression.  Of course, I tried to deliver it in as professional a manner as possible - using virtuoso words to try to express the importance of getting beyond words.   You can read the essay on line HERE.  And you can download it in pdf form HERE.  I'd be interested in getting feedback from folks on the essay.  Just drop an email to me using the contact form here and let me know what you think.  Thanks.

Finally, some action

Rather than trying to make this into a complete website before going public with it, I've decided to start posting things, and let the site grow.  I'm starting with some videos that I just uploaded to YouTube.  These are from works I've done in the past 18 months.  As I add things, I'll work on getting some video works from the past loaded. This first piece is a video that I made a couple of days ago.  It's made with Algorithmic Arts ArtWonk v4 alpha, which I'm currently testing and developing some fractal routines for.  This piece, both video and sound, is 2 layers each of a patch made with a rather mutant trace of the Hilbert Fractal.  The sound is made with the new softsynth from Plogue - Chipsounds.

Well, good things take time...

My old teacher, Kenneth Gaburo, talking about years-late commissions for performers, said, with a twinkle in his eye, "Well, good things take time...."  And while I do admit to being a follower of the ancient Greek philosopher Procrastes (there are no writings by him cause he kept putting off writing down his ideas), whose students were known as Procrastitutes, it may seem odd that I promised last year to get this site up and running in a couple of months. 

Well, life has a way of getting in the way of plans, and it's been a very busy and sometimes fraught few months.  But starting in October 2009, I'm planning on getting back to developing this website, and when it's up and running nicely, I'll send out a bulk email to all and sundry advertising the fact.

Good things take time...... - right!

Coming Soon

This will be the new Warren Burt website.

Coming soon - maybe by mid-December 2008 or early January 2009.


It will have lots of articles to download, sounds and pieces to download,

video clips, etc.  You'll be able to purchase CDs of my work, as well.

 

In the meantime, my old website at www.warrenburt.com is still in existence.
