Patrolling the Ether
90 second excerpt, TRT: 7 minutes
The end of analog broadcasts will be a boon for electronic anomalists. In this diaristic video essay, eclectic electronic pursuits including EVP, EIP and Martian radio are bandied about by a disembodied voice emanating from beyond. Paranormal penchants aside, interviews and examples from Portland’s Pulse Emitter reveal the always already strange goings-on amongst electrons.
“Obsolescence is the moment of Superabundance,” Mcluhan once mused, and with mass media broadcasts making haste for digital pastures, electronic anomalists look forward to an excess of static filling their analog screens. From modular synthesis to fortean electronics, the end of analog broadcasts amplifies opportunities for all manner of etheric patrols!
