Hacking a Vectrex

A couple of years ago I hacked a few Vectrex's, 3 for a colleague and one for myself. Here is a simple documentation of how I did it.

Video Haiku

Video Haiku was a 3/4" tape compilation. It included work that also appeared in Lonesome Blues and Green River Blues. Video Haiku originally leaned heavily on the work from the September '82 session, now seen in Lonesome Blues; none of those segments are shown here. In creating this version. I defined Video Haiku as work that was created in the 3 ETC sessions from November '82 thru May '83.

Video with Charcoal

Video with charcoal is a thread that I explored from 1980 probably through 1983. This cut shows a few of those experiments. A couple more are seen in Green River Blues. This grew out of sequencer work that was being done at the Experimental TV Center, by Ralph Hocking, and by others. I was also influenced by Ken Jacobs who, while I was at SUNY Binghamton, had us look at and explore his work that utilized Alfons Schilling's shutter experiments - all amazing work and you should get yourself to one of Jacob's performances if you have not seen this.
