(In collaboration with Sam Calvetti)
The Craftsman is a companion instrument to the fight-o-meter. Where the fight-o-meter transforms plant and organic matter into a touchable interfaces for synthesis, the craftsman reanimates dead electronics. By attaching eight patchable clamps the old components in the dead electronic devices that we have collected, these old interfaces and technologies are transformed into synthesizers. The video to the right is a demonstration of this process in action.
Homebodies is a duet for the craftsman and the fight-o-meter that uses the instruments to control and manipulate banks of field recordings we made of objects in our home. We performed it at the wulf. @ coaxial arts on April 24, 2019.
