Paul O Donoghue

Media installation, IE, 2011
The installation is based on recordings made in the Experimental TV Studio New York.
Using 80’s technology, simple tones, buzzes and glitches were made visual via voltage controlled video synthesis. This technique directly converts the frequencies of the audio signal into a visual form.
These recordings are then made three dimensional by projecting them onto 10 surfaces of 4 rectilinear forms. When a number of these recordings are played simultaneously, complete with audio, new rhythmic and harmonic, audio visual complexities emerge, creating a constantly changing audio visual composition.
