Vow of minimalism

Curent technology offers so many opportunities that it becomes a hindrance to creativity. Therefore, inspired by Dogme 95’s vow of chastity, I swear to submit to the following set of rules:

  • Sounds
    • The sounds must be either sampled from other created content or recorded by the artist.
    • Synths and sample libraries are forbidden.
    • The only types of processing allowed are cut, fade in/out, volume change and pan.
    • Mixing effects are limited to one reverb, compression and EQ.
    • Mastering is allowed.
  • Visuals
    • Visuals are only allowed for interactivity purposes.
    • The visuals must be either images (moving or not) from existing works or images recorded by the artist.
    • Graphics created solely for the purpose of the current work are forbidden.
    • The only types of processing allowed are cut, fade in/out, zoom in/out, transparency and superposition.
    • Other effects are forbidden.
