Computer Perfection just released a 5-song EP in a limited edition run of 100 cassettes, with MP3 download available for the purists.
We seek to raise funds in order to hire artist and director Mister DeMaggio, tasking him with creating the appropriate visual accompaniment to our 3 minute pop song. Listen here...
Mister DeMaggio's unfiltered and unguided proposal to the band prompted us to devise a plan to make it happen:
In 2011, I was again approached by the band Computer Perfection to create a video for the song “Boby Tarlow”. Initially, the lyrics call out “Hey Toby” before the chorus becomes “Oh Boby Tarlow.” Mysterious as this insignificant change was, my research of the name conjured up its hidden reworking of one Toby Barlow: Creative Director and Author. The band was not interested in focusing on the individual; they claimed that they were merely amusing themselves with their friend’s name. I wanted to appreciate some reference to an artist in the brainstorming phase, so I proposed an ongoing paper-fold transition, starting with a blank business card that generated colorful 2D and 3D animations as the song gradually became a chant surrounded in origami.
Money that we raise will offset the costs of renting a fancy camera and hiring a professional photographer. It will also cover the cost of time and materials incurred by Mister DiMaggio.
