In his recent process, obsolete video equipment is modified for use as performance instrumentation via voltage control from a homebuilt modular system. Functions of discarded editing machines are automated in realtime to project synchronized monochromatic patterns and pseudo three-dimesional geometric environments. Audible frequencies within the analog video signal are amplified into a corresponding synesthetic score.
