Jason Hotchkiss is a Brighton-based noise maker and inventor of electronic kits and devices for musicians. This year’s Fort Process sees two new installations from Jason:
The Tesla Coil Organ, high voltage electrical arcs that produce musical tones. This is an interactive exhibit controlled by visitors – at a respectful distance!
Chaos Matrix is a hands-on installation that visualises, in a grid of lights, patterns of interference between a set of individually tuned audio oscillators. Flickering chaos locks into stable patterns, which then melt back to visual noise as tuning knobs are adjusted. A kind of audio-visual synaesthesia results as the patterns of harmony and discord are seen in the playing of the lights and heard in the accompanying drone of the oscillators.
