updating in process
02.2006 two television monitors, a custom made video on dvd, doepfer analog synthesizer, mic and speakers. i began by trying to compose a video, being mindful of what the video signal would sound like. the video waveform monitor gave me a rough idea of this. mostly i ring-modulated the signal, which resulted in areas of canceled out color. this signal was sent to a television monitor, resulting in unstable flickering images. thus the sound affected the image while the sound originated from the video. in addition, the television monitor itself gave off a signal (through the air?) that affected the sound within the synthesizer. so if i turned the monitor off, it would drastically alter the sound. this created a kind of feedback, crossing both audio and video (see video one). these sounds were recorded within the studio space.
01.2006 i accidentally plugged the wrong voltage ac adapter into a pair of desktop speakers. after unplugging it i noticed that the red power light remained on. this gave me the idea to find out if it was giving out any sound, so i plugged it into my mini disc recorder. this is the sound it picked up. i was also playing with the optical input of the recorder. much of it sounds like feedback.
01.2006 two mini disc recorders, two microphones, a small microphone amplifier, and desktop speakers. these are made both with line in and with a microphone.
03.23.06 three imagewriter ii printers, live stereo recording run through grm tools within deck. not live, processed but not cut up or edited.
computer into analog synthesizer
02.2005 audio files made in SoundEffects 0.9.1 using sample hose, a granular synthesis with pitch shift and random parameters) i gave it pure enveloped tones to process. i looped these sounds and ran them through the synthesizer.
10.13.2005 looping computer files, drum machine (rhythm factory 0.9), synthesizer, eq, and much speaker feedback. these are loud.
02.2005 made using cloud generator (curtis rhodes software), this is mixed.
