Yo shout out to Ryan McKenna, killer album!
A month ago I led a workshop at the Digital Harbor Foundation on building Atari Punk Consoles.
The original circuit was developed by Forrest M. Mims III, and published in a Radio Shack booklet: “Engineer’s Notebook: Integrated Circuit Applications” in 1980. It was originally called a “Stepped Tone Generator” but named after the Atari 2600 due to the similar sounds it makes.
I created a small web page to go along with the workshop which can be found here. I am planning on updated that page before the next time I run this workshop to include easier to understand schematics and more clear instructions.
The workshop started with building a flashing light circuit using a LED and a 555 timer. After understanding a circuit with one 555 timer students build the APC which uses two 555 timers.
Here is a project I worked on last semester while in Prague.
The first iterations was set up in a black box theater with multiple projectors and and speakers. The audio piece was a soundscape done by my colleague Lucas Lacámara. In this version the video portion was being manipulated in real time by the audio piece
A few days later I set up the same piece in a photography show, moving the piece to a gallery was difficult.
I ended up switching up the piece a bit and instead used my phone to control the video piece. As I walked around the gallery I could change up the colors and placement of the video. Even though this installation used the same base content it ended up being a very different piece.

Pure Data: Audio Manipulating Video
This is a small patch I put together the other day, it takes the audio levels of a soundclip and mixes two videos together accordingly. I used footage from the 1965 Watts Riots and 1989 Velvet Revolution, there are some nice and interesting moments when you can see both American National Guard units walking and Czech citizens marching at the same time.
