Field Transfer projects the sounds from an analog circuit into juxtaposition with facets of raw digital audio. As a performer interacts with the circuit—which consists of two square-wave oscillators activated by pressure sensors and shorting disks—instances of pulsed and modulated sound are triggered in the laptop in a manner that couples the analog and digital sources together. Sudden change in the circuit can act as a trigger for starting sound, interrupting sound, and redirecting sound in the laptop. The circuit audio can also drive the laptop to track in harmony at times.
I saw the installation in Berlin and stayed for 30 Minutes in that room. I discovered it randomly and it was clear that I had to support the artist. To rest there between the bowls and Chrystals surrounded by this hydro-soundtrack was deeply moving and meditative. Thank you. alepheins
