Birth of the Wub Wub by jasinski Birth of the Wub Wub by jasinski
The robot embodies the hodgepodge nature of Dub-step and sampling in electronic music genres. Bits and pieces of real instruments, layers, jangling juxtapositions. I find pyramids mysterious and compelling. I use them here as a connection to history and fallen empires- that, as observed by Isaac Newton and others, we are standing on the shoulders of giants. The factories represent well.. inane pop music today "polluting culture":) The city in the background: the masses of the modern world. The girls here suggesting some kind of priestesses, in my mind, vacillate between muses and producers. I love contrasting the botanical with the mechanized- Here the flowers represent the organic, the natural, the passion that thrives in all kinds of music, or any human creation- even in a computerized world. It's worth nothing without humanity. The water? Stream of consciousness, inspiration, the spring of creativity that the robot is tapping into.

I love the many layered ideas you have for this piece, I do to like the blend and of the machine and the organic. I also see that the organic in the real world (the flowers) and the organic in our minds (creativity) somewhat oppose as one is real and one is fiction and also correlate as they are both in a way living things. I likes to believe that ideas are living and breathing as they come from our souls and of course creativity steam ideas. Just as flowers stem from mother nature. The robot and the city also oppose and correlate, as the city houses living things and the machine houses and perhaps traps the living thing that is the organic idea.
The robot brings jumbled noise just as the city brings chaotic sirens and honking alarms and the robot jumbled music. In a way the machine is the aviator and evolving form chaos and the flowers a sort of order, or perhaps an older form of chaos. One organic the other a false organic being.

That robot is awe- Wait for it... -some!

That's the coolest looking robot I've seen, in a long time, maybe of all time. Because I can't remember any robots that are this creatively put together. Accordion body, great. The head, it looks so awesome, most people would have thought of using a drum as a head I think.

This is fantastic. I just love the different imagery and symbolism that you have placed in here, also the sheer creativity and colour of this piece really caught my interest. The designs of both the robot and the girls is really interesting and fun in my opinion. Keep up the amazing work!! :)

I think this'll probably become one of my most favourite pictures from your work. I can't specify everything I like because the visuals are a little over-stimulating right now, but I do like that the robot has so much expression despite simply having a panel on a drum for a head.

wow! thanks very much. I truly appreciate your comments. I did indeed try to give the robot personality even though he's a drum. It's a challenge.

Darn you!!! I've been sketching out ideas of a multi-armed robot playing drums. We need to find parallel universes soon so our ideas will stop crossing! This is gorgeous though, Aaron. One of your best to date. Congrats!

This is stunning work! I love the expression of the girl looking up at the music machine with those big curious eyes. Or is she just intently listening to the sounds it is producing? By the way, what is the larger female character holding in her hand? A magic wand or a conducting stick? It is different than the figure in the foreground. Just curious. Love your work jasinski! :0)

I feel like the women and girls epresent the youth of tomorrow, partaking in a robot given life, and with it a duty to understand the true meaning of music. Finding that meaning utterly useless, he has set out into a world to study the lives of people as music, breathing the smog of manufactured pop only motivates him more to find his own style, and finding the hopeful curiosity of the people he has found, and their willingness to experiment, he begins to truly create a music all his own, a gathering of sounds from within, and an observation of sounds from without, coalescing together to form a new kind of music that the children listen too in wrapt awe.

It's like the girls are both pimps and pimped, caught up in something they can't escape. The ice cream cone microphone cross is scary. It isn't just cigarette commercials that target the young.

Fine work, Aaron.
