Force Fields (2010)

19 min 58 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

Force Fields is a twenty-minute video and sound composition using custom developed video manipulation hardware. The unique device developed in 2008 called the AV5-Error enables sound to be forced into an active video signal. Sound then becomes visible through this process. The structure of Force Fields consists of eleven short compositions recorded live in a studio context. Each composition consists of short arrangements of a various pure tone frequencies, metronomic pulse wave clicks, white noise and microphone feedback being forced into monochromes of broadcast test tone colour bands.
