  • Stefan Tiefengraber - WM_EX10 WM_A28 TCM_200DV BK26
    WM_EX10 WM_A28 TCM_200DV BK26' is an audio/video noise performance, where sound and video are generated through short circuits that artist produces with his wet fingers on opened devices. The skin’s resistance and the conductance of the human body, combined with the components of the circuits, are modifying the sound. The audio signal, coming through the speakers, is sent to CRT monitors and a video Projector, which are visualizing the signal in flickering and abstract shapes and lines in black and white. The used devices, such as 'Walkmans' and 'Bontempi' keyboards, are still useful in their original function.
