DX-Heaven is a generative A/V installation.
I was invited to create a new work for the group show BITMAP:As Good As New, featuring artists repurposing antiquated technology. DX-Heaven is an installation celebrating the (in)famous DX-7 synthesizer (“the synthesizer that launched the 80s”). It generates a continuous stream of musical information, which is realized simultaneously on the DX-7, and as scrolling ASCII-character video. The vertical-scrolling of the installation is an intentional evocation of early music sequencing softwares (trackers), and the whole setup is a nostalgic glimpse at what I (and many other young composers) first used in their childhood bedrooms circa the late 80’s through mid 90’s.
