VECTOR HACK 2018


I haven't updated in a while (there is still a write up of my amazing signal culture trip last year coming)

But this is too good not to leave a short post about. I am helping Ivan and Derek with their amazing Vector Hack Festival project. Vector Hack is a festival centred around experimental vector graphics using oscilloscopes and lasers. It's happening in over two sites starting in Zagreb on 01/10/18 and ending in Ljubljana on 07/10/18. I will be attending so if you decide to come see you there!

Ivan and Derek have worked tirelessly to make this happen and it's going to be amazing.

Photos From The Video Workshop

The video workshop Alex and I gave was one of the best I have delivered, all 15 attendees got to take home a working CHA/V module they built in the class, it's a hacked VGA signal generator that basically allows you to build a simple video synth by adding some home brew or off the shelf oscillators. We had a great mix of attendees and they were all from really interesting backgrounds and super engaged. Alex as usual did a nicely paced video synthesis tutorial and I then lead the theory and building part of the class. We rounded up with Alex leading a discussion around historical video synthesis work and then proceeded to enjoy the evening concerts that were also part of the fantastic Brighton modular meet. (Pics 3+9 here are from Fabrizio D'Amico who runs Video Hack Space) Thanks to Andrew for organising the amazing meet which hosted the workshop, Matt for making our panels last minute, George for helping us out on the day and Steve from Thonk for supplying some components for the kits.

Come hang out and enjoy the rest of the meet.

Some pics of the panels we had made by Matt for Jona's CH/AV project (which we will be making on the day). There is also a shot of some audio oscillators driving the CH/AV to a VGA monitor.

Video Circuits Room at Brighton Modular Meet

Alexander Peverett and I will be looking after a Video Synthesis room at Brighton Modular Meet this weekend. Come down to chat about video synthesis and our strange love for CRT tubes :) there will be at least 6 sony PVMs on display! along with a few systems and unusual bits of video gear. I am super excited that Nitin AKA Bradford Bahamas will be bringing his incredible playable CRT rig.

Invited to be part of the 2016 International Conference on Live Interfaces (http://www.liveinterfaces.org/) at the University of Sussex, this years Brighton Modular Meet takes place in the newly renovated Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts (formerly the Gardner Arts Centre). We will be taking over a number of rooms in this Grade 2 listed building designed by Sir Basil Spence.

In addition to a large open access space where you can set up your synth and mingle with others, this year we will have a room for manufacturers and shops, a space for talks and live performances, and a video synthesis room.
