Center For New Music
This video was included in the
exhibition ART 1990 at EZTV Gallery. It was included in the gallery show
and presented at a separate screening on 22 September 1990.
1990 was a digital art exhibition mounted at EZTV Gallery September 1
through October 31, 1990. Curated by Art Historian Patric Prince,it was
produced in collaboration between L.A. SIGGRAPH and EZTV as part of the
Fringe Festival / Los Angeles.
Pinwheel is a children's television show that aired on the Nickelodeon cable network from 1977 to 1990. The show originally aired on channel C-3 of Warner Cable's interactive system QUBE in Columbus, Ohio, and it began airing on Nickelodeon when it first launched in April 1979.
The show was similar to Sesame Street with live action skits mixed with animated shorts. Action scenes took place in and around a large Victorian-style house called Pinwheel House with a pinwheel on one of the peaks. Live actors would interact with puppets, discussing various concepts familiar to children's programming like sharing and being considerate, basic learning skills like colors, numbers and letters. All of the characters lived and worked in the various areas in and around the house.
There were a total of 260 one-hour Pinwheel episodes recorded from 1977 to 1982. However, Pinwheel was typically broadcast in 3 to 5 hour long blocks with multiple one-hour episodes shown back-to-back. It remains the longest-running Nickelodeon show in episodes and hours on air, and was the longest-running in years until You Can't Do That on Television broke the record. It is now #6, behind All That, You Can't Do That on Television, Nick News, Rugrats and SpongeBob SquarePants.
One of the most memorable things about Pinwheel was that it featured a wide variety of both regularly animated and stop-motion animation short films or cartoons from many different countries, most of which were only about five minutes long.
An original television trailer from early 1990 for the 1989 Oliver Stone film, starring Tom Cruise as Ron Kovic and co-starring Kyra Sedgwick, Raymond J. Barry, Caroline Kava, Willem Dafoe, and Frank Whaley.
Bill Ware, a computer operator from London, England has won 9 days and
has accumulated $44,000 in cash and prizes, car included. He is going
for his 10th day, so with this second season way, an RV is on the line.
One of his challengers will be either Jim, a writer from Brooklyn, NY,
Dale, a full-time mother to twin boys from Los Angeles, CA who has a
thing for Ron, or Mark, a graduate student from California. Can the
contestants face the music and put together musical clues to famous
people, places, and things? More importantly, can Bill defend
successfully to win maybe $10,000 in cash and that RV? And, pay close
attention to that Mystery Face in that Championship game!

Radioactive Dreams is a voyage into the hypnagogic realm created by the interaction
between dancer and the electronic signal. While the movement of the dancer lingers
and fades with the video signal the body is used to paint the frame and to create a
non-linear form of action.

Shelley Fabares, Dee Wallace Stone, and Heather Langenkamp starred in this rejected 1985 comedy crime TV pilot about four suburban housewives who form a neighborhood-watch program that quickly develops into them solving crimes outside their neighborhood.

A video and music synthesis piece made with borrowed video synthesis equipment (Fairlight CVI and EMS Spectre) and my sound synthesizers at home. It was used as an interlude in a larger political performance piece "Diversity." The abstract slowly moving graphics and microtonal electronic soundtrack establish the idea of the title - movement, above and beyond any comments our language might attach to it, has its own mode of expression and its own expressive values. The final graphics are the product of one successful interactive improvisation with the electronic music and video equipment.
Sherwin Gooch interviews Bruce McDiffett, ILM veteran, Mathematician, and Futurist thinker.
Bruce Advocates video production, social thinking, new technologies of communication and continued learning. He diagrams a model of an octagonal broadcast network, that seems remarkably like the youtube.com environment today while this interview was in 1992.

This year I am taking part in a project called "52 Pick-Up" where participants
make one video a week for an entire year. I was introduced to this project by fellow video
artist and friend, Sabrina Ratte.
Currently I am 10 weeks in and can already sense how the project will benefit my work in the long run.
By making a video every week I am forced to face my fears and share work even if it's not complete or an idea
that I might ditch along the way. It's a nice reminder that video art is a practice and a pursuit that must be fully explored to realize it's potential. It also helps to develop a deeper relationship with the tools but also to escape their tropes. I hope that by video 52, I have made some kind of breakthrough that is beneficial to the art form and my own inner peace as a multidimensional artist.
Please enjoy my success and failures because they are one and the same.

Hans Richter - 1921
Rhythm 21 is the second experimental film ever made. Hans Richter was preceded by the Italian Futurists Bruno Corra and Arnaldo Ginna between 1911 and 1912 as reported in the Futurist Manifesto of Cinema.
The Interactive Image was a computer graphics based installation created by faculty, graduate students, staff and collaborators of the Electronic Visualization Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Chicago in 1988. It was designed for exhibition at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. The works presented are now on permanent display at the Boston Computer Museum.
The Interactive Image installation consisted of a large panel holding six built-in computer play stations, each with a bench for two, a control panel with buttons and a trackball or joy-stick for user interaction, a 12-inch monitor for user viewing, and a large monitor for broader spectator viewing. The installation presented a number of applications, including image resolution/ communication, fractals, graftals, interpolated animation, symmetry/tessellation, and pseudo-color. Users interacted with on-screen graphics to manipulate various parameters to control the graphic results.
Based on video game design principles, users could contribute interactively to an artwork, while being given the opportunity to explore the participating computer graphics technologists' research. Three levels of complexity and a 'learn' module for each level was employed as the model of interactive educations, bringing both the artist and the prospective student closer to the subject matter.
After the Literacy Project's call for bids for a computer to accompany the TV programmes and literature, Acorn won the contract with the Proton, a successor of its Atom
computer prototyped at short notice. Renamed the BBC Micro, the system
was adopted by most schools in the United Kingdom, changing Acorn's
fortunes. It was also moderately successful as a home computer in the UK despite its high cost. Acorn also employed the machine to simulate and develop the ARM architecture which is much used for embedded systems. Globally, as of 2013, ARM is the most widely used 32-bitinstruction set architecture in terms of quantity produced.
While nine models were eventually produced with the BBC brand, the
term "BBC Micro" is usually used colloquially to refer to the first six
(Model A, B, B+64, B+128, Master 128, and Master Compact), with the
subsequent models considered as part of Acorn's Archimedes series.
From You Tube user Cindidrennan: "In the 90's, there were fewer women working in technology-based careers
and the TIA (Technology and Industrial Arts) unit at Underdale campus
commissioned this video, to encourage girls in high school to consider
studying in this area. The TIA approached the Film and Electronic Media
department of UniSA to be involved in production, and myself and several
other female students in our final years became involved.
spent some years by that time making films and editing, and also being
comfortable with the animation systems available at the university, this
film incorporates effects from keyed Amiga DPaint3 animation through to
Fairlight CVI MTV type effects. Most of these were created offline but
several were overlayed in a final online edit mastering process.
music was composed at the Magill campus media unit, by Darren Cox, who
used an ensoniq s16 synth to overlay the voice samples over his own
guitar and scratch composition."

Nikolai Voinov (1900-1958) demonstrates the techniques of Paper Sound and the creation of music for animation.
The demonstration includes two short animations:
"Rachmaninov Prelude", 1932 (1:07)
"The Dance of the Crow", 1933 (2:11)
(1992) This is a documentation from the SIGGRAPH exhibit in 1992, showcasing computer graphics devices and animation developed by students at the Electronic Visualization Lab. At this time, the CAVE® Virtual Reality Theater was first exhibited.
