One of them (I think it was the last one) combined with the Miku sounded like a choir of drunken mice, with some notes sounding like they're being accompanied by bagpipes, which has got to be worth the price of a BitQuest! alone :)

Seance's settings don't matter, but huffin' the Japanese marker fumes first is absolutely essential:

Ha! THESE markers are MAGIC!

But seriously... they are. They sell them at Artprimo (I think they are a US distributor).
I actually got a relative to pick these up for me from Japan.

I have been using these Magic Ink markers for a film project and they are fantastic.

But speaking of BitQuest settings........

I was going to hit record on my camera while I noodled around and experimented with
settings on the BitQuest, but I got caught up in playing and only recorded the audio and
forgot to turn the camera on.

So... I don't remember what my settings were... and there were other pedals in the mix.

Thanks, Chank!

One great thing about these markers is that the "light" colors show up really well
when drawn on filmstrip and projected. With some markers the yellow and the
lime green colors are either very watery or don't show up at all.

But with the Magic Ink markers each and every color (that I have) is very vivid
and solidly the color it is supposed to be while still being translucent (good for film).

Which also makes these markers sort of like the BitQuest... very solid and vivid
sound spectrum. Very dynamic and inspiring to play and twiddle.

:love:

This gives a sense of the kind of thing I'm using these Magic Ink markers for.
Except on this frame I used different markers to create images on a roll of
35mm motion picture film that was improperly exposed (the whole roll
was the amber color visible around the sprocket holes).

Seance, that looks really cool. So are you drawing an entire section of the reel?

I used a variety of techniques and applied them to the entire length of the 35mm roll. For this one
all the imagery is abstract/geometric since there is no underlying exposed image on the film itself.

I do have another 16mm film project that I'm working on where I'm using similar painting/scratching
techniques, but since that one has an existing image, it feels a bit different and reacts differently. The
footage for the 16mm project is something that I shot decades ago for a failed project that I never
completed. In that case scratching away the emulsion was cathartic, since it was a way to address
the feelings of failure and regret that the failed project elicited in me.

For this 35mm animation I drew with various markers and then applied various other types of inks
over that using small watercolor paint brushes. Some of the inks I used are alcohol-based while others are
lacquer-based. So the different ink mediums sometimes repelled each other in interesting ways,
or with certain combinations the pigment settled to create various sedimentary or random patterns or
undulating clouds of "grain" or textures or even crackles.

I also used a few different tools to scratch images into the emulsion either before or after applying
the ink. In one case I scratched in geometric patterns and then went over the entire thing with two different
kinds of ink (one black, one an intense violet) and when the ink dried it sort of pooled up in the channels
and grooves that I had scratched into the film to create really cool lines. I'm super pleased with how that turned out.

For scratching film I use several different tools. I have a bookbinding awl that works great for creating strong lines
of uniform thickness. I have a sewing needle stuck into a wine cork (for ease of gripping the needle) that gives
very fine lines or wispy ones due to variations in pressure applied. I have a carving tool for carving soapstone that
creates a parallel swathe of lines of varying depth, which, when used on exposed film creates different colors
depending upon how much emulsion is scraped away.

I also used a few different kinds of sandpaper or grinding tools to create ghostly texture blocks and random line swirls.

Eventually I'll post that project, but not quite yet.
