On Tuesday night we held a boiler room type party for Dungeon Dancehall. We borrowed a 400W speaker, a mic, and a projector for the night.
Chappers set up the projector so that his visuals were on the ceiling, I set up my mixer so that I was facing away from the guests & Shoma set up two cameras with a direct audio input and then streamed the visuals and audio through Ustream.
I started mixing at around 10PM and kicked the night off with some Dungeon sounds and some more upbeat dubstep & grime tunes. I went on for about 2 1/2 hours.
Shoma was also taking some photos to put on the Dungeon Dancehall facebook page.
For the last half an hour of my set I was joined by 3rd Year Will Gilligan. He was on mic duties for the night and gave a sick energy boost to the music. We were really impressed by what he bought to the night so we offered him a slot for the actual event on the 16th.
badman on’a mic.
After my set the next DJ came on, a guy called Luke who studies at AUB. he was mixing some garage flavours and was really good. William carried on MC’ing and looked like he was getting really into the music.

After Luke’s set I hit up my mate Marcell from work to come down and do a set. Marcell was probably going on for around 2 – 2 1/2 hours playing tech house.
Some more images from the event are below.

Today Phil bought in an old slide based projector which uses film backed with glass to project. We were talking about how we could add to Dungeon Dancehall, we started talking about the sort of effects that you can make my essentially destroying a slide of film.
The effect over the mans face is achieved by scratching the image with a very fine point.
you can also burn film and pour ink over parts of it to get some great effects. I think there’s a lot of potential to get some really dark imagery. For instance, you could make a black slide of film and then scratch it, followed by painting some colour over the scratches.
I then looked at some other examples of what you can do with traditional film.
Read below how this image was made.
These two images were made by two students, Luke Evans & Josh Lake. They made these images by eating slides of film, and letting them pass through their bodies. They then collected the slides when they exited their person and developed the images.
This image was made by dropping ink on a film negative.
It’d be really cool to experiment with film negatives at Dungeon Dancehall
