VIDEO SYNTHESIZER







Steve Beck belongs to a cool club called EAT (experiments in art and technology). EAT was a super psychedelic, electronic, computer- engineer, art movement from the late 1960's. In 1969, Beck (who is referred to as an "electronic polymediast" on his website) invented the awesome Video Synthesizer. In 1979 he invented the Phosphotron (not sure what this actauly does but the image of it is enough to get excited about). I wish we could get hold of a video weaver to make some prints with. If anyone knows of one please advise...

  1. I'm so glad VVC is back on track. Everything looks great. Hopefully you will get a chance to see the mellotron documentary I worked on (it isn't the Phosphotron but an early synth in a way nonetheless): Mellodrama...maybe sometime down the line...xxx...http://www.myspace.com/mellotrondocumentary
