Medial Ages, a Live AV Performance by Laura Netz consisting of experimental electromagnetic power noise with DIY circuitry and a handmade synth. DIY oscillators, based on Schmitt triggers, using optoelectronic components produce a repetitively modulated wave. The strobe light controls the circuits modulating the signal. The light triggers sonic signals. In a sound/light integration, the modulation of tone activates an interactive system based on DIY. It is a self-generated sonic machine creating a syncopated, high-pitched, noisy beep. The flickering from the strobes assaults the sense to create neurological after-images. The audiences’ subconscious and altered states are activated to an open experimentation of feelings and knowledge. More audio @ Archive.org . Download PDF here . More videos on my YouTube channel.
