VIDEO RELEASES

WINTERMUTE (2014)
An audiovisual reference to Neuromancer.



This video was created with the IBM PC version of 3D Construction Kit a software by Incentive Software from 1991. The software is also known as Virtual Reality Studio. The sequences were captured in DOSBox and later recorded on VHS and routed through different old video manipulation devices, some of them circuit bent. The track was recorded with the vintage frequency modulation synthesizers Yamaha DX21 (1985) and FB-01 (1986). The music track was mastered on old worn-out tape with a Vestax VestaFire 4-Track recorder to get the acoustical aesthetics right to the desired expression.
