VECTOR SYNTHESIS

  1. ///PLEASE SET "HD" TO 720p FOR BEST QUALITY///

    The VECTOR SYNTHESIS project is an audiovisual, computational art project using entirely analog synthesis and vector graphics display techniques to investigate the direct relationship between sound+image. Driven by the waveforms of an analog synthesizer, the vertical and horizontal movements of a single beam of light trace shapes, points and curves with infinite resolution, opening a hypnotic window into the process by which the performed sound is created.

    Informed by the discourse of media archaeology, my own personal interest in analog vector graphics isn’t merely retro-for-retro’s-sake. Rather, it is an exploration of a once-current and now discarded technology linked with specific utopias and dystopias from another time.

  2. Continued studies in nonlinearity, this time using cross-coupled XR-VCO oscillators, Serge smooth/stepped generators and random voltages from the Wogglebug run through a series of Buchla Low Pass Gates and plotted on the oscilloscope. Recorded 14.09.11 at the Danish Institute for Electro/acoustic Music, Aarhus. Reminiscent of Jackson Pollock's action paintings, mid-century Modernism and a time before the information machines took over. A sketch quickly realized in the dark with improvised tripod and bad, in-camera microphone. To be expanded. Watch with the lights off.

  3. //PLEASE SET TO HD1080p + FULLSCREEN. VIEW IN DARK SURROUNDINGS FOR MAXIMUM EFFECT//

    Test clip for Pure Data Vector Synthesis library + modified Vectrex monitor, displaying multiplexing and rotation of two distinct vector shapes.
