We noticed when we looked at a couple of recent releases on the Bleep homepage today that a lot of sleeve artwork was paying homage to the beautiful (and sorely missed) aesthetics of video synthesis and processing (see above).

With this in mind, we asked our good friend / artist extraordinaire Konx-om-Pax (aka Tom Scholefield) to pick out some examples of work, and the equipment used to create these techniques… Here’s what he gave us.

    I just love those old analog video processors. You might be interested in this video I did for Born Ruffians, thanks to some reprogramming of an old oscilloscope by computer programmer/artist Rob Bairos:
