Michael Egger & Flo Kaufmann - Analog Visuals Labor

BitVision video synthesizer

here is something cool from Lars Larsen of LZX Industries fame via handmade music

"Lars Larsen of LZX Industries will be presenting his new BitVision video synthesizer at the next handmade Music Austin."

The BitVision features :

– A frame buffer which can display internal shapes and images in many colorization modes.
– 8-bit color palette, although thousands more can be revealed from the analog color phase shifter.
– An analog envelope follower/generator that responds to an external audio or clock signal, with gain and decay controls to modulate video.
– A frequency counter also derived from the audio input, which can modulate video based on the frequency of the input signal.
– Program and mode selection pushbuttons, as well as two arbitrary knobs and one pushbutton to control parameters dependent on the currently selected display program and mode.
– Integrating programming header allows savvy users to upload their own images and animation routines.
– 1/8″ jack audio input.
– Composite video RCA output.

This workshop will be presented By Switched On and will be held at the space next door to them.

Are You Ready for TV?

Are You Ready for TV?  very interesting looking show

"just when it seems that television as we have known it is over, we are asked if we are ready for more. The MACBA presents a television defined by the experiments of artists, thinkers and media professionals in order to show what happens when a relationship is established between such different languages. It is not an exhibition about television, but one conceived from the place of television. Its aim is to study how the diverse ways of grasping images and the life of concepts contribute to tracing the horizon of our cultural present. "

TV Interruptions (7 TV Pieces): Interruption piece, David Hall, 1971.

Experimental 1/2 Hour

my friend Gary directed me to this!
