sound and image performance trio for three percussionists, musical instruments made from 1999 iMac G3 computers, hand-held amplification probes

 

The latest version of the instruments use a parasitic sub-circuit the backseat driver, which resembles a micro-version of the patch-bays used in classic modular synthesizers. The backseat driver allows the performer to patch various signals from within the computer’s circuitry together with signals generated by an on-board function generator in order to disrupt and change flows of digital information at the hardware level. A set of fine-tipped sound amplifying measurement probes are then used as the main interface for performers to play through the layout of the G3’s circuits.Save
