SYNCHRONATOR is an audiovisual project by Bas van Koolwijk and Gert-Jan Prins, for which the artists have developed their own electronics. The project is a continuation of medium specific experiments between image and sound from the early years of video art.
Sonic Acts - Vertical Cinema Synchronator Workshop at STEIM
, 21 February 2014
The Synchronator device converts electronic audio signals into composite video signals. Designed by Bas van Koolwijk and Gert-Jan Prins in 2009, it has seen a steady growth in the number of users since then.
During this workshop, we will introduce you to the background, techniques and use of this device for live improvisation and recordings.
Each participant is invited to work with the Synchronator devices and television monitors, ask questions, and engage in hands-on experiments.
Your instructors: Gert-Jan Prins, Bas van Koolwijk, Tina Frank
- Participants should have an affinity with direct interaction between image and sound.
- Bring your own sound-producing devices to connect to the Synchronator!
