Performance by Marcus Bastos

How does radio, TV and MIDI transmits their signals? What does their modes of transmission teaches us about broadcast and network cultures? Are their signals related or different? Do this similarities or differences explain modes of transmission in their epochs? Or show more similarities than differences between analog and digital modes of transmission?

The piece explores the relationship of analog and digital signals, aiming to depict a lacunar archeology of transmission. The immediacy of radio transmission transduced into sound. The latency of TV broadcast shattered through spatial montage. The micro temporalities of the digital explored as fast swapping of present and its very immediate pasts and presents. It will be presented in the form a lecture-performance, as a way to research formats of knowledge production that bridge verbal and non-verbal, artist and theoretical.
