A video art entanglement between sound and image in an analog feedback loop.

"Psychles" explores visual music through video feedback techniques. The video below represents a single performance using an instrument assembled from a range of analog sound and video equipment.

The instrument mixes two different video signals. The fist consists of a basic video feedback loop, a camera is aimed at a small 9" reference monitor. The second results from pointing another camera at an oscilloscope which is driven by an analog synthesizer. The video feed from the second camera displays the sound wave coming from the synthesizer performance. A video mixer is used to blend the video of the oscilloscope with the video feedback displayed on the reference monitor. The instrument provides a way to poetically modulate the image of a sound wave using video feedback.
