Talk / A modular synth and a modified games console from the 1980s?”: Personal influences, inspiration and tangents.

I was chatting with an old friend who I don’t see very often. He knows I like messing about with sound and old synths, but when I told him I was currently using about £1k’s worth of modular synthesizer to draw shapes on the screen of a weird old games console he burst out laughing! This talk will present and reflect upon pieces of art, design and cultural artefacts that I think are important and influential in forming the basis of my oscillographic experiments since sharing instructions online about how to modify an increasingly expensive 1980s Vectrex games console.
