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. XY-monitor + Dual "Butterfly" Benjolin [testing phase Berlin AUG 2015]: V INPUT, H INPUT, Z-AXIS INPUT, PULSE MARKER INPUT. These low-res videos are a preview of an instrument I will be working on during my OCT 2015 Toolmaker's Residency at Signal Culture, Owego NY USA, and which will be made public in early 2016.

  3. 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.
