Alan Palomo of Neon Indian (the electro-noise-pop band who once wished to have taken acid with you) collaborated with Bleep Labs in creating the PAL198X – a limited edition mini analogue synthesizer that produces strange beeps, blips, reverb-y waves of sound. In Neon Indian’s website, they stated that the synth “features swappable controls that allow all three of its oscillators to be controlled with the included knobs and light sensors or with all kinds of devices just by screwing them in.”

Julian Hand is a film artist and visual projectionist for our latest LomoAmigos The Oscillation. He uses traditional analogue techniques to create swirling, trippy and beautifully tactile films and light shows. He uses Super 8 film, coloured inks, washing up liquid, soap and acetate to create these images and visuals. He embraces all things analogue! I brought an LC-A+, some 1600 ISO film and captured him at work.
