THE LUMINISTS // Dancing Calligraphy // 1992

Charles Cohen - audio
Eric Schefter - video

Dancing Calligraphy was created at ETC in Jan. 1992, and edited later that year. In this piece we slowly strip away the layers of processing to reveal the source feedback that forms the basic ground from which the imagery arises.

In Dancing Calligraphy, the imagery was created utilizing control voltages from Charles' analog Buchla Synth controlling the Paik Raster Control Unit, the Jones Colorizer, and Jones Sequencer. We also used MidiMice and Buchla's Thunder midi controller to trigger DPaint4. The DPaint4 image cut a key in the video, revealing the many layers of processing that make up the final image.

Thanks to Alex Tyson for this discovery.
