Vision - Tim Gruchy 

Sound - Tim & Pam Greet

University of Qld- Brisbane 1980

George Patton Gallery - Melbourne 1981



Gruchy was very interested in the growing area of computer graphics and their ability to morph imagery and indeed states. With no access to computers at that time, the vision was an analogue of some of the transforms that we were just beginning to see for the first time. It consisted of a single screen and a set of hand-drawn slides. The dissolve unit was set at a fixed dissolve time and period. The music was inspired by Frippertronics , Fripp and Eno’s use of systems music at that time. The 4 reel to reel machines had one tape that ran from machine 1 to machine 4 and was configured to create multiple feedback loops. The delay time between the reel to reels matched the dissolve periodicy.

No performance shots I'm afraid.

Transfered to U-matic video 1982 with the help of Gary McFeat at the Avalon studio Brisbane.
