Celestial Harmonies (installation)

Celestial Harmonies (installation) from Alberto Novello on Vimeo.

"Audiovisual installation using sound to modulate the blue beam of a cathodic ray monitor.

I asked Alberto what was creating the sound. He replied with the following:

"I use a BELA board ( to generate the sound. I sampled impros from my modular synth (this is the original video I made few years ago using only my modular [embed below] that I use in the installation).

For most parts I used a WMD PDO back then + lota of Ring Modulation and AM. I also use some low pass filters controlled by BELA through CV to generate the drones. I made a DIY amp to amplify BELA levels to modular, and a circuit to output all that through the speakers. The monitor is a modified vectrex, (a game console from the 80s). So it's partly digital party analog."

Celestial Harmonies (short movie) from jestern on Vimeo.

"Video recording of a modified Vectrex monitor excited by signals produced by a modular synthesizer.

Inspired by the orbits of planets and other celestial bodies.

Video recording of the performance in the Saint Francis church in Udine."
