M. Geddes Gengras & Barnaby Bennett Offer Webpage Installation,

Recently, L.A. modular synth maestro M. Geddes Gengras and Calgary-based musical anthropologist/electroacoustic troubador Barnaby Bennett teamed up for an audio-visual webpage installation entitled “Oblique Quantumization.” The piece consists of 18 short modular synth pieces synced to visuals, created using Datamatrix in Max for Live and played in a randomly generated shuffle sequence every time the page is refreshed. Recorded in 2012 in L.A., both the audio and the visuals faintly bring to mind the strobey, seizure-inducing immersion of Ryoji Ikeda's Test Pattern and is most effective in full screen (and in the dark). Below is a screenshot; check out the live webpage here.

M. Geddes Gengras recently released New Lines, under his Personable moniker, via Peak Oil. Barnaby Bennett's last album, Shadows and Reflections, was released on Umor Rex in 2013.
