While in residency at the Experimental Television Center in October 2008, I set about exploring the relationships between sound, image and the different ways that the signal flow could be affected in syncing the two elements. This video is a result of that experimentation: using source video from the sound sculpture “Sound Garden” in Seattle, I “cut out” parts of the video image and inserted in tandem live video of myself playing the musical saw, along with an input from the “Wobulator” (the Paik-Abe Raster Scan Device, co-designed by Nam June Paik and Shuya Abe). The signals of these two inserted video elements are switched by the relative amplitude of the audio input from the saw performance.
