Audio/video noise performance, 2014/ongoing

WM_EX10 WM_A28 TCM_200DV BK26 is a real-time audio/video noise performance where sound and video is generated through short circuits the artist produces with his wet fingers moving on opened electronical devices. The skin’s resistance and the conductance of the human body combined with the components of the circuits are modifying the sound. The audio signal that is audible through the speakers is sent to tube monitors and video projectors, visualizing the signal in flickering and abstract black and white shapes and lines. The used devices, such as “Walkmans“ and “Bontempi“ keyboards, are thus still useful in their original function.

This performance wants to show the advantages of the analog and today outdated seaming devices and signals. The speakers and monitors react organically and show the signals as they are. This is in contrast to digital devices, which will only display a picture or play-back sound if the signal is stable and remains this way for a certain time, so that in the end the device itself decides if the signal is suitable for the user or not.
