Thoughts Detecting Machines


From the group’s website:

Thoughts Detecting Machines is the latest project from Rick Valentin, the man behind the late-80’s alternative band, Poster Children and its concurrent electronic side project, Salaryman.

“New Day,” the first single from the upcoming Thoughts Detecting Machines debut album Work The Circuits, humorously details how supposed conveniences aren’t all that convenient after all. “This is a simple song about how things like self-help mantras, life hacks, and fad diets are supposed to solve problems, but are problems themselves,” says Valentin.

The artwork for the record literally explores the connection between art and technology, having been created by a pen plotter that Valentin wrote new software to control. The result is each vinyl copy of “Work The Circuits” possessing a subtly unique jacket. Valentin took the audio waveforms of sides A and B of the album and converted them into Bezier curves. He then brought the curves into the Java and rotated and transformed them in 3D space, over time, generating a dynamic animation of the curves.
