The source images of this fascinating video by experimental image/sound-maker Brian O’Reilly come from a video synthesizer called the Rutt-Etra Scan Processor from the 1970s, while the sound comes from manipulations via custom software designed by O’Reilly himself and co-designer Chandrasekhar Ramakrishnan. Synth and programming geeks might get a little bit more out of this than I can, but I find the mere sound and visuals of this piece to be unnerving and captivating.
