modulated zips

here’s an improvised video,
made live,
with homemade electronics,
namely, 2 sound-generator/distorter-manglers,
an envelope-controlled state-variable-filter,
and a video-synthesizer… some audio mixers and lots of patch-cables also

My favourite example the “Contrapunctal Radio” style, this audio-piece about `Outport Newfoundland` from 1969 was actually the first CBC radio broadcast over their new stereo-network:

sequel to the idea of north, poetic test-pattern..
the fidelity would seem to encourage close, careful listening, perhaps with headphones, in an uniterupted space of time; as one should suppose music recordings would.
