Despite the resounding lack of interest in the Bliptronome of late and my recent move to coal country, I’ve continued on with some new ideas and have been hacking away at some new electronics projects. Most recently I’ve been working with a set of interesting rf based circuits which monitor unused portions of the radio spectrum with super-amplification. The idea is to hopefully receive some signals from beyond. I’ve recently become comfortably acquainted with the phenomena of apophenia. It seems that people (ok, especially me) have a tendency to subconsciously make sense of seemingly random streams of data (such as the signals captured by these circuits). I’ll be demonstrating these devices and some new video and audio mixing techniques at Hunter College on Friday the 10th at 6:30pm.
This project, Apophenia will be performed along with works of Hans Tammens and MAKS as well as several fabulous video works at “Everything is Falling Apart,” an evening curated by Mathew Garrison. If you’ve seen my VBLANK performances, this will be unlike anything I’ve ever done (except for the wires hanging out everywhere). Check it out if you’re in NYC, the works will be performed at the Thomas Hunter Performance Space at Hunter College’s 86th & Lexington building. Check it out!
