A scanline moves across the moving image and the pixel values drive banks of tuned oscillators. Signal values are used to drive brightness/contrast/saturation parameters on the video feed. Effect chains on the oscillator banks are likewise altered by the parameters of the sound, which feeds back into the video.

From 9 to midnight I manipulated field recordings taken from various locations around the island – including recordings of the Quinsam, a trip to the grocery store, and a trio of pileated woodpeckers foraging in my yard.

On Saturday evening we will gather in the shining place and chant the mantra of King Shark.
