Jonas Bers is an audiovisual artist and performer. For their work they use hacked video mixers, a hand-built video synthesizer, and various pieces of restored/modded lab equipment & military surplus devices. Jonas's tutorial for the CHA/V “Cheap Hacky A/V” synth has been taught around the world.
Jonas will discuss entry points into hardware-based real-time video synthesis, such as their own tutorial for the CHA/V, and the LZX cadet/castle DIY series. If you enjoy making analog audio circuits, and you are interested in video synthesis, they can suggest some good places to start and helpful resources. Jonas's personal practice involves hardware-based scan-processing (aka Rutt/Etra synthesis) which they can also discuss at length.
In this chat we will discuss:
- Hardware based video synthesis
- Real-time video synthesis
- Common visual synthesis practices and variations
