Kalkartronic - Mini Live Jam #32

YouTuber Kalkartronic explores the complexities in pornography when directed by M.C. Escher, while jamming out on a bunch of gear with Gadget!*

* The previous sentence was nonsense. Like most things on this site. It would be pretty boring (to me especially) if the blurbs I put here above videos didn't at least include some creative efforts. M.C. Escher porn was the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw the video, so I jested that this was the intent.

Video Description:

Kalkartronic "Unknown Energy" Live Jam
Set-up: Arturia Beatstep controlling Waldorf Rocket, Korg Volca Keys, PO-12 and preproduced tracks on Korg Gadget. Waldorf Steichfett played with Keyboard thru Mooer Repeater Delay.
Recorder: Edirol R-1
Camera: Ricoh WG-M1
Mixer: Phonic MU1202X

Thanks a lot for watching!

Would Kalkartronic and that talented dancer have a problem with your referring to their work as "pornography"? I have no idea what you meant.

Are you familiar with M.C. Escher? Watching this it occurred to me that porn directed by M.C. Escher would be tricky.

I get the Escher reference. And you are perfectly free to have things "occur" to you.

The way you word it, you make it sound like it wasn't your impression, but rather that Kalkartronic was "exploring" this idea-- and using that term to describe a non-erotic dance might be offensive to both the dancer and Kalkartronic.

Yeah, I guess I can see that.
Stub,

Thanks for asking those questions. I had a similar response.

And Tim, thanks for answering them.

Besides, Escher would do more than just flip something upside down.

I'd recommend you reword your first sentence, so that it is clear that this is YOUR impression and not the intent of the artists.

This whole site needs a disclaimer that says that, but for this specific post I've added that.
Thanks, Tim.

FWIW, I don't think I've ever taken issue with any of your writing before (or maybe once?).
