Gryphon Rue and Benton C Bainbridge perform immersive, real-time media with bowed singing saw and Lisa Joy: a modified game console driven by signals from modular synthesisers. Synth and screen are instruments for “electronic calligraphy.” Bainbridge patches cables and turns knobs to coax voltages into points of dynamic energy that vacillate between the poles of abstraction and representation, transforming from relative intelligibility to blurred indeterminacy. Rue’s pure and electronically processed saw frequencies create an aura of wonder and suspended disbelief, inducing Flow State; increased alpha brain wave activity manifest as a feeling of complete absorption in the activity of listening.
