57mm Wavetable Protest Synth
Calling all activists, sound artists, and pseudo philosophers. Dirty Electronics and Max Wainwright will set up an in house press with live publishing straight to 57mm width paper roll. Contribute to the ‘scroll’ through the writing of individual political texts, protests and manifesto. The texts will be indelibly written to EEPROM of a chip on an artwork printed circuit board and manifest as noise. The noise blast/text can be hacked and customised. Performance and publication will co-exist. The event will conclude with a ritualistic ‘blessing of the text’ by throwing hard grains of rice at the scroll as the text prints. The grains will create an almost-silent protest, disrupting and jamming the printer and by making small percussive sounds as they strike paper. The silent protest will be disrupted by violent noise interjections and DIY shouting horns.
