Phillip Stearns, an electronics media artist based in Brooklyn, NY, performed his piece “Protochiptune” in the ATLAS Black Box theater after a concert by the Bowed Piano Ensemble on November 11, 2013.
He used a “breadboard instrument” that produced sounds of vintage computers and video game consoles while simultaneously producing video from the same signal.
The video consisted of rich, saturated colors that filled most of the width of the fourth side of the theater. Rectangular and parallel-lined forms constantly changed their size, frequency, number and hue as the abstract sounds changed as well.
The performance was part of MediaLive 2013, a festival that explored live audiovisual arts. It was produced by the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (BMoCA) and guest curated by Janet Feder, David Fodel and Paco Proano.
