Working title "r3sync 5.5/What ever happened to MTV?"
r3sync is djing and vjing while remixing. It has become my technique, my passion.
The audio mixing style is MAXIMAL. That's many trax mixed many ways...
This piece tells many stories from my life. The movements will take you through different forms of electronic music: House, Techno, Trance, Progressive, Electro-House, and even an a cappella. Some of the tracks are layered on top of each other (mashup or mixing?), and others stand solo.
Well I have used this video backdrop while I perform for over a year now. This mix is now formally retired, and I hope you enjoy it.- fr3qnast3
The original torrent is still circulating on Mininova and The Pirate bay. It has been over a year and it is still alive. Mininova counts over 12,000 downloads, and I wonder how many were completed on TPB? There were a few bugs in there I wanted to fix, so here we go...
The original version was created using DV for an (intermediate) editing codec. This resulted in color shifts, and a lot of jagged edges, especially with HOT colors. The resolution was 720x480i with a 29.97 frame rate. When I converted the video to pal, it was looking pretty bad.
For this remastered version, I used uncompressed 8bit video at 1280 x 720P, with 29.97 frames per second. Working in a larger intermediate format helps retain as much of the original format as possible, and allows for the creation of a higher quality master.
Most footage was SD, some was HD, and a small fraction was web resolution. It's hard to find good HD footage....
This NTSC version took 8 hours to render to DVD.
This version of the audio mix was from a gig last year. Most of the trax were from .wav files, except for a few which were not released in wav format, as those were .m4a. The output was 24bit 96khz (I use 24/96 audio when I play out:), but the final output was compressed to 16bit ac3.
This is the *NTSC* edition. I preserved the video at 29.97 fps but used a lower bit rate than the PAL version, but since there was no frame rate conversion it looks great. There are navigational menus, 1 demo reel for the 2009 WMC, 1 video reel for the FUEL event in Singapore, and Tiësto and Sneaky Sound System's video "I will be here"
Finale output for main movie:
3.4mbps VBR (7.7mbps MAX)
720x480 29.97 FPS Interlaced Video
126 BPM 448 kbps Dolby Digital Professional
French, English, and Mandarin Subtitles are BURNED IN.
An additional subtitle track has been added to the top of the screen to note the chapter names.
The other trax vary in average video bitrate from 5.5mbps to 7mbps.
Their audio is 192kbps.
1) With my friends
Chillen at WMC 2006+2008. Missed 07, is was a mess...
2) The idiots have taken over Detroit
I thought Cerberus capital management would fail, but for the wrong reasons. I was right in the end though.
3) Till death do us part
I thought it would last forever.
I was wrong.
5) Follow me
Dreaming is way more fun.
6) I'll be there in your life
One's love for another, and ones love for freedom crammed in to two movements.
I am better than you, and I will take your girl. Detroit is a reoccurring vehicle, old Detroit muscle vs. new.
8) I trusted you
Classic betrayal. This happens to me every few months or so.
9) Ego trip
15 min of fame, but a little shorter.
10) Are you ready...
...to be seduced?
11) "The internet is a series of tubes..."
This chapter is dedicated to former senator Ted Stevens, the internets mastermind.
12) State of affairs
The world in small movements.
13) MTV is a no.
Where are the videos? I always liked Channel 13 & PBS better anyway.
14) London Calling
Madonna left us for the UK:(
15) MTV evil business
Their business model depends on "reality tv". LOL go figure...
16) Drugs changed everything
I left the game when I was 18, and that saved my life.
17) Get lifted
Yo Phil! This one is for you!
18) Freedom at any cost
We take liberty for granted, and the real cost is war through proxy.
This is here because the hero always gets the girl, right?
Reconciliation with old friends really helps.
21) All I ever wanted
Now I have all I could ever want.
Resistance is not futile.
23) The Limelight
Besides the drugs, dancing was an all night affair.
24) A new life
The future is...
