All posts for the month December, 2016

With only 2 weeks left of 2016, bitterly cold weather has descended upon The Bronx, so it’s studio time for Benton C Bainbridge. End-of-year projects include a new synth for laser lissajous patterns at American Museum of Natural History’s One Step Beyond, as well as further Vectrex modifications.

These are the last few days to catch “Signal to Noise”, the exhibition of art and artifacts from Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media Art at Cornell University, so now’s the time to visit Ithaca, NY.

Wishing you a very happy and safe holidays with your loved ones, see you in 2017!

NNeng-M Tears in Signal to Code at Johnson Museum of Art, Cornell University
The latest exhibition of the Signal to Code series has just opened. The show at Johnson Museum of Art includes Tears, a media performance artwork made by NNeng-M (Brian Moran, Nancy Meli Walker, Benton C Bainbridge, and Molly Kittle) at Experimental Television Center in 1999. Sampling fifty years of video art held in the Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media in the Cornell Library, the exhibition features works created in the pioneering facilities of the Experimental Television Center (ETC) in Binghamton and Owego, New York.

Held / Bainbridge Observatory / Lisa Joy (W) in “Sound Art in Spain (1961-2016)” at Fundación Juan March
Barbara Held and Benton C Bainbridge have installed their generative audiovisual collaboration, Observatory / Lisa Joy (W), in this survey of sound works from the past 55 years. Held’s sonification of solar oscillations creates shifting harmonic structures over a static flute sound (coding by Ariadna Alsina). An envelope follower derives control voltages from the music to shape sinuous lines from Bainbridge’s modified video game console.
