    Produced + Directed by Alex Tyson. Viewing with headphones or a stereo is highly recommended. A film featuring sound artist Charles Cohen improvising on a 1970's Buchla Music Easel. This extremely rare instrument is one of Don Buchla's 200 series. Buchla (a pioneer of audio synthesis) only manufactured 14 of these units. The film was edited from over an hour of free improvisation, with audio taken directly from Charles' mixing board.

      This is my final piece for my degree in BA Digital Media Design at the University of Brighton. Essentially it is a remake and reboot of Nam June Paik's 1971 piece "The Wobbulator" (viewable here: http://vimeo.com/16906546) with an added Max/MSP software interface, Arduino controlled selectable "channels" and webcam input. Apologies for the slightly uninteresting presentation, but operating it and filming it was kinda tricky!

        By viewing a video file as text and then editing that text by hand I am capable of purposefully corrupting the data in a way that utilizes the form of the original video content without actually showing that content. Much akin to video circuit bending the data is warped before playback and then presented to the viewer as something outside its original intent.

                This is a 13 minutes extract of a live performance "Future Sounds Like Past Toys", made as demo. ------------------------------------------------ “Future sounds like past toys” was born by the collaboration of two major artists, that is the musician and circuit-bender EraSer and the video-artist and vj ape5, and it is based on the concept that contemporary music and the music of the future “sounds like” past toys. The project goes back and begins with the experimentation of sound through modification, errors, “bending” of toys, and focuses on their audiovisualization trough glitch aesthetics, creating a digital analogical dialogue (dianalog) between video and audio, exactly between “past toys” and “new toys”. The audio part of the project avails itself of the art of circuit bending performed by the artist EraSer using toys turned into musical instruments that interact, through micro-controllers and electro-acoustic analysis, with a video-synthesis hardware/software and self-made controller by ape5. sounds: EraSer visuals: ape5 ------------------------------------------------ Recorded @ InContemporanea - december 2009 thanks to: Basilio, Ass. Cul. Octoeco, jelly fishes and everyone who support us... ------------------------------------------------
