Lately I've been modifitying black and white TVs to make them audio reactive.  I've been sussing out variations on the popular Wobblevision hack and I've found a good number of them.

Later this month I've got an installation going up at the Bent Festival in New York, which is an annual festival for circuit benders, audio experimenters, synth builders, and DIY electronics enthusiasts.  The project, Prepared Televisions for Voice, will have 15 TVs linked together that create a visual display which reacts to the sound in the room.

I've got the TV's and much of what I need to get the whole thing working, but I'm lacking a strong enough power supply to run all the televisions, a handful of components, and, most importantly, a big enough car to get them all down there.

Thanks in advance for your support, and give me a call if you want to get a beer later or something.

Best,
Galen
