AlienCelt is the name of the inter-continental musical collaboration between ElectroCelt and our dear friend Lia Shapiro in the USA. Lia is one of the few female electronic musicians I know, working under the name “AlienTribe”, and about a year ago she and Geoff decided to try out a collaboration across the oceans. The name CelticAlien and AlienCelt were two contenders for collaborative name, and Lia decided on AlienCelt.
Using addLib S and addLib U, I have created some Visuals for AlienCelt. I have created quite a few of these, and only some have been presented to Lia and Geoff. Some are still at draft stage, and I will add more processing to the images before I’m happy with the finished product. However I am building up a portfolio of Visuals so that when the time comes for posters etc to be made up, I’ll be more than ready:
Well, blogs are supposed to provide bite-sized morsels of information, and I know you’re all busy people, so I’ve split my “On Creating Visuals” into 3 Parts, each concentrating on one artist. Part 1 was about my own label. Here is Part 2 about ElectroCelt.
The Visuals were done using a variety of Android Apps, which were then input into the random generator mode of the iOS App addLib S and/or addLib U. And then tweaked further using various Apps to finish off the final image. Some of the images I have done will be made available as t-shirts on my Zazzle page http://www.zazzle.com/alyzenmoonshadow.

Recently I’ve become enamoured of Swiss-style graphic design, in the quest to create posters for ElectroCelt and for myself. Yes, I’m afraid when it comes to being creative, I have too much time on my hands. I’ve also created what I call “visuals” for the musical collaboration between ElectroCelt and our dear friend in America, Lia Shapiro “ALiEnTriBe” (hope I spelled that right, Lia!).
Here are some samples of the “visuals” that I created, using the amazing iOS Apps addLib S and addLib U. First came addLib S; I stumbled across addLib U by accident only 2 months ago, when searching for similar or related Apps on my iPad. I will review addLib S and U in a later post. As a “crossover” artist, I utilise both iOS and Android Apps, and I use my iPad 2 and Samsung Galaxy S3/S4. All transfers between iOS and Android happen via the universal App “Transfer”, such a boon and so easy to use too! An added plus is that not only can I transfer images easily between my iPad and mobile phone, I can do transfers to and from my Mac too. Check it out here http://phototransferapp.com. And it’s FREE!
