Exhibitions Wooly Bully by Martin Freeman
May 6-May 31, 2020
Martin Freeman will be developing an audio/visual installation using repurposed VGA test signal generators, as well as homemade audio electronics, to create a hardware synthesizer that produces interrelated video and audio. There will also be opportunities for feedback in which light influences sound and sound influences light by incorporating sensors such as Light Dependent Resistors, phototransistors and electromagnetic coils into the core circuitry.
Martin Freeman works with homemade electronic circuits as a creative medium. He is particularly interested in chaotic circuits, which have characteristic behaviors but unspecified and unpredictable results. He utilizes these circuits in musical improvisation, in sound art pieces, and as the basis of interactive installations.
Funds for this residency came from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; the Max and Marian Farash Foundation; and Joy of Giving Something.
