Fourier-Tanzformation I+II


With the piece Fourier-Tanzformation I+II mikomikona present a physical-semiotic experiment. In this investigation, we make use of two overhead projectors as sound devices.

To accomplish this we layer several transparencies with raster patterns, flickering interferences are produced through shifting of the layers. Parallel to the projection, we capture these interferences with small b/w video cameras and transform the video signal into acoustic events. We implement our image-sound-converter, a small self-developed hardware device which eliminates the video’s sync signal. The spectators see the two projections of black & white moire patterns while simultaneously hearing the sound these patterns perform. What you see is what you hear. Fine moire lines produce high tone, wider lines result in lower tone pitches. With small motors we create visual and acoustic rhythmic structures.

Mikomikona is dispensing with any digitalisation. This ensemble of analogue techniques represents an opto-electronic synthesizer with two crossed outputs: image and sound.
