Recording yourself during a trip.
    #4160845 - 05/11/05 08:29 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

I've been entertaining the idea of video taping myself while I trip. I think it would be interesting to watch later when sober. Has anyone here done this before?

My 2 cents on the matter!

Recordign yourself can provide usefull data and insights.I more preffer recording the sounds i make and speech patterns with a cassete recorder equiped with sensitive "record-when-noise-is-heard-feature).

I much less preffer videotape for the reason that what you will see is just your human shell.The whole trip is inwards,when you review the tape you will propably see yourself just looking in awe at the walls,nature or laughing or lying down for 3 hours unend.

Some tips and traps to avoid

1)Usually the presenceo f a videocamera becomes dictating...You may fall in the game of giving a "one man show",or having then otion that the tape must contain something "interesting" for you to see.Furthermore it just depicts your image and not what going on in your head.One could create galaxies,short his emotional baggage on the trip,visit outlandish imaginary landscapes or have an experience tyhat could be revelatory in a religious sense...The camera here will only record someone on a bed moaning,tossing and turning

2)If you choose to record yourself in any way be sure to "forget" about the equipment in the room or put it in a non intrusive place..I would mostly recomend nature for having the experience

3)dont feel bound by your recording method...You cant wire the whole place with mircophones and cameras and certainly your recording equipment shouldnt force you to stay at one place..

THts all i can think of now!

yes i have done it on sally. i noticed that i did not remember anything for about 15 mins threw the sally trip. i then took a video camera and sat on my porch and taped myself.

the results were amazing. i had no idea the amount of stuff i said and did until i taped it.

as for a longer trip of 8 hours or so i would find it very ... boring.

Well, I was thinking of doing it during a mushroom trip and only watch the part during the peak. However that would be quite difficult to do because I move around a lot and it would be hard to keep a camera on me. There would almost have to be someone else there with the camera and that would probably freak me out.

But it might possibly be cool with the sally. I might give that a shot.

You make good points psiloman. I can't really see it turning out to being a positive experience, but it's just one of those things I'm curious about.

It's been a while since I smoked Sally. The last time I did I thought that I was being made into a Cambells soup can.

I quite like taking my small dv cam when im out and about at houses etc, but it can be a little nervy, the pictures look a little different if your stoned, on mdma (although not really an halluninogen) or shrooms, u can interpret pictures differently and scare yourself a lot

After taking some pictures of me and the girlfriend we looked back and persuaded ourselves we were both dead and sat there nearly in tears shitting ourselves cos on the camera we looked like monsters. (yeah go on laugh  :crazy:)

I suggest tape it and take pictures but watch it when your sober, i've had plenty of scary times when i've looked at piccies when high and tripping (i have a relatively strong mind and can shrug it off and go haha thats mad, but many people will fall into thaught loops and shit themselves)

Anyway do what ya want but tell us all about it :wink: and post ya vids!!

Yep, me and my friends have done this! 

However, imagine our disappointment when we replaying the tape, and all we got from our mindblowing trips was the following:

"Yeah." 

"Yeah." 

"Yeah?" 

"Yeah." 

There's about two hours of us on the tape just saying in that long, monotone voice, "Yeah..."  :smile:

i have a video tape from last august we were fishing on the west coast and all of us were on 4 hits of acid, so i have 2 hours of video of me and some friends catching 30lb salmon while lit up like a christmas tree... most entertaining video of myself ive ever seen, and i gotta say if you've never done catch and release salmon fishing, its very fucking intense especially with a lil hallucinogenic spice...

Never recorded myself, but typical conversations include:
Am I me or am I you?
Who are we?
Is that my voice or yours?
Who is talking? Am I saying this or that or what was then this but is now that?

I've done this with audio a few times.

Its noteworthy to mention one should really set up before hand tho.

A couple of carefully placed microphones and speakers in an area you plan on chillin in works good.

I route everything into a 8x8 firewire audio interface and rig with effects and other weird dsp type stuff.

In essence, it turns yer whole audio surroundings into a wierd musical instrument thats fun to play off of.

Makes great sample fodder for musical projects too.

When I first started tripping and I was so amazed at what I was seeing I thought I would be a great idea to record it so I could watch it at a later date a prove to my friends what I had seen. It was a great idea when I was tripping balls on 3 grams of shrooms, but unfortunally my friends were rather unimpressed of my 20 minute video of walls and carpet doing nothing more then being walls and carpet. We got a good laugh at it though.
