Hav1bit VGA Video Synth

awsome project from Telenoika

"1 Bit Audiovisual Synthesizer
Hav1bit is a VGA and audio synthesizer, consisting of 3 square pulse generators which can modulate themselves, in a way very simmilar to the FM synthesis techniques.
The project is done by means of Arduino programming, and it incoporates an interface consisting of 6 pots and 6 buttons, which can control individually the RGB channels. The very same pulses which are generating visual data are transformed into audio, so what you see is exactly what you hear!"

Here is an awesome website and youtube channel for Videoheads a very early (and still somewhat active) video arts collective

"Videoheads began its activities in London, 1967 at the Arts Lab, working with some equipment donated to us by The Beatles. This cumbersome and unreliable equipment was replaced in 1968 when we staged a huge happening at the Albert Hall known as The Alchemical Wedding. Money from that event was used to create a studio and mobile equipment dedicated to the documentation of alternative artistic activities which "normal" TV would not bother with. We were the TV of the alternative society.

In the intervening 40 years we have always maintained a free, open studio, archive and showplace dedicated to what we call "Videoculture"

After 20 years of consulting and working with UNESCO in Paris, the collection and workshop have been re-united in our new workspace in Amsterdam"

here are some awesome videos 

thanks to Diamond Variations for bringing these guys to my attention  :)

Video Synthesis at Sydney Opera House!

Johnny Woods will be performing at the Sydney Opera House with his LZX and some prerecorded material !!!

28 May 2011 7:30PM - 11:59PM

"Gavin Russom, the synthesizer wizard behind The Crystal Ark and Black Meteoric Star, has been specially commissioned to create his most ambitious work ever exclusively for Vivid LIVE. The show is a 90 minute concert and installation featuring a 10 strong collective of musicians and artists from NYC, DFA Records, LCD Soundsystem and more.

Known as "The Wizard" for his technical prowess Russom has built instruments for the likes of James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) and Tim Goldsworthy (UNKLE) and has toured playing synths and percussion with LCD Soundsystem.

Bringing the full Crystal Ark collective together with dancers, lighting designers and video and projection artists, Russom will expand on the immersive multi-sensory experiences he has developed for the 28th Sao Paulo Bienial, MOMA and PS1 in New York.

Sydney Opera House is the perfect location and Vivid LIVE the ideal occasion for this fusion of intense visuals with the living sound of The Crystal Ark full band."
