Peter C has uploaded some amazing work from earlier in his career.


Analogue Video Workshop

So the Video Workshop went really well, we are planning to do more but I also have a bunch of other related projects going on at the moment, so if you want to host one send me an email and I am sure we could work something out. I currently have a diy sync-gen on the workbench and have been generating a lot of footage, theres nothing like meeting a bunch of people and getting them enthusiastic about video art to scare you into finishing some of your own work. Thanks to all who were involved in putting the workshop on including Encounters, Seeing Sound, Arnolfini and Bath Spa University.

oh yeah and one of the attendees wrote us a very nice review, which I think is a really kind thing I should do more often when I go to talks.

Here are two shots of Alex's video synthesis lesson.

Sismo VGA Box

Here is what looks like a simple VGA breakout box for eurorack standard synths, pretty fun way to get it to video synthesis, you could have something similar together in an afternoon and use any audio source as an input. http://www.sismo.net.br/vga-box-eurorack/

Why Not, Jim Sosnin (1980)

A recent upload by Jim Sosnin drawn to my attention by the ever vigilant Jeffrey

"Video synthesis demo from 1980, realised using EMS Spectron video synth plus some homebrew gear. The audio was created in 1978 using 3 Transaudio synths linked together. This digital transfer via an old U-matic (3/4-inch format) VCR, repaired for the occasion, to retrieve original stereo audio (my more recent VHS copy had mono audio only)."
