An installation of 17 modified cathode ray tube televisions and computer monitors, interfaced with a custom programmed network computer system algorithmically generating audio and video.

The excerpt contains multiple moments in the system in which high-frequency sine waves are synthesized in Max/MSP and sent into the red, green, and blue pins of a VGA cable, generating highly controllable visualizations of audio being bent into video.

Cracked Ray Tube is a project of James Connolly and Kyle Evans, showing January 13 - March 7, 2014 at Discarded: the Afterlife of Everyday Electronics at Columbia College's Arcade Gallery:

Footage of Phil Morton used in the installation is Morton being interviewed by John Maebey during the Siggraph 1982 Art Show in Boston, found at the Phil Morton Memorial Research Archive.
