Genevieve Herve

"Photographer and director, Genevieve HERVE is a pioneer of video and electronic images."

"While it was on directing the “Challenge of the actor” , that was the major document of a PhD in Literature, that she came in contact with the INA (Institut National de l'Audiovisuel) in 1976 ,where, within the GRI (Research Group Image) she learned video editing and became familiar with the two home computers (I believe a poor translation of video synthesizers/processors): the Universal Trickster (Truquer Universel) and the Spectron."

Michael Bohacz & Michael Wayne Davis

Here are some excellent videos form Michael Bohacz and Michael Wayne Davis created using the sandin image processor and other equipment for their Leonardo da Video company who provided chiago clubs with ambient video content during the early to mid-1980s. I one of the video descriptions Michael Bohacz states "By this time (very early 1980's) I was in the Advanced Video Synthesis class, taught by Professor Phil Morton". I would have liked to be in that class.

Trash Tier TV has posted some really nice complex feedback on their vimeo, Very well composed with  a good range of form and colour.

Trash Tier TV also contacted me about this previous post involving their work and a few other artists

"monomal + muttermahl are tightly linked to legoluft studio, heavy circuit bending:

the visuals in the video you show are from tintin patrone, a friend who now does music and is also intrested in weird musical circuitry:"

Great doc on the Synkie

Alivia Zivich, Nate Young, Steve Kenney as Demons

"Demons evolved from a synthesizer duo into a Visual Music trio with the incorporation of video artist Alivia Zivich. Working under the name "Video Madness" she often used the music of Demons as soundtracks to her analog video experiments. Live performances as a group led to the redefining of Demons as Visual Music."

Demons have produced some pretty interesting visual music and are a rare example of the art form as a live hands on band. Alivia Zivich has also produced some interesting solo work some of which can be found on line. While I love the 'high art' of many of the visual music pioneers I can't help but be attracted to the hands on approach to production, something which I have been attempting recently by playing out more often. I wish I could have caught them on their relatively recent European tour.
