From Monday Feburary 14th, until Monday February 21th, I will live and work in David Johnston's ETAY Loft, at 2019 Moreau, in Montréal, Canada. (http://etay.ca)

The ETAY Loft is equipped with digital video-cameras, which makes it possible to capture video 24/7. There are 4 cameras in the main room, and 1 in the bathroom, with automated saving based on motion dectection, to .mov format, and possible realtime effects interaction through a Flash GUI, and a gamepad.

During an earlier residency (jan. 14th-19th 2005), Jake Elliot (http://structuredsound.net/), moreover additionally has 'audio-wired' the loft, by building some modules of self-contained contact-mic/amplifiers, picking up the 'loft's soundings'. Jake also added some patches for automated treatment of these signals.

Within the setting and set-up provided by David and Jake, I am going to use my 'lo-fi' dictaphone-type equipment, for supplementary recording and playback of the sounds (and the near-silences) occuring during the week of my residency, both inside and outside the loft. (Inside the loft, I will either - if possible & provided - use a double bass as a sound-source to be un/discovered, or work on constructing and investigating a 'double bass like' acoustic contraption.) My 'noisy/analog' recordings will (eventually) be cut up, mixed and confronted with the 'clean/digitally' captured and treated images, and the audio-signals captured through Jake's wiring and patches.

Visit of today's guest: Anna Friz. Sound Clip
Recording is 'threshold' controlled: only when the signal picked up by the microphone is above a certain threshold, sound is recorded onto the hard disk. This short file is a chronological 'assemblage' of some 100/150 of these 'micro'-takes...

ETAY infrared motion-triggered camera in the bathroom: above the mirror and the wash basin is the 'miror's touch screen. When you touch and massage the screen with your fingers, your image distorts (fluid dynamics)...
