Synaesthesia: Analog Video Art by Barry S

Synaesthesia by Barry S:

This is a video art piece I did in 1983, before digital video– so all the effects are analog. It was done mainly by hacking and otherwise abusing a Grass Valley video switcher console with input from a studio camera aimed at a monitor to create feedback effects. The soundtrack was done by my friend, William Schaeffer–who was doing a lot of work with early computer-based music. This is a dub from 3/4″ videotape and it still needs some restoration. It’s also difficult material for the video compression codec to handle, but I hope you can still get a feel for the original piece.
