Analog Visuals Labor (Michael Egger, Flo Kaufmann, Max Egger) will perform on the SYNKIE togehther with BIBLIOTEQ MODLAIR (Daniel Maszkowicz) at the Gathering for Open Source Hardware at CERN, Switzerland.
The event will be streamed live as well for the Museum of Post Digital Cultures, curated by Raffael Dörig, Kunsthaus Langenthal
“The era of analog video synthesizers was very short, its potential not fully explored. It is thus the urge to further explore the possibilities of analog electronic synthetic images (and the technology behind it), not nostalgia that made the brothers Egger and Flo Kaufmann create their own analog modular video synthesizer, the Synkie. In a time were digital VJing is ubiquitous and we are used to certain digital aesthetics and clichés, the reinvented-outmoded, space-consuming Synkie creates suprising, unusual images. But Synkie is also an open source project, it’s circuit designs are documented and shared online. A web version of the sharing spirit of the early video art scene, when knowledge was shared in magazines like Radical Software and the building or manipulating of hardware (rather than buying) was an integral part. Live performance in cooperation with GOSH! Gathering for Open Science Hardware. http://openplant.org/oshwforscience/”
