“Living stereo” by Brian Mackern, is presenting 2 ways of using, seeing and hearing things in which digital processes are involved, this CD-ROM’s main interface reflects fragments of 1958 film Introducing Stereophonic Phonograph Records by Handy (Jam) Organization. There are two main sections (left and right, ying and yang, 0 and 1): SoundCode.Sketches and cinema.tik each linking to different sets of soundtoys (simple and playful soundvisual interfaces and remixers) that reflect two ways of interacting/reacting with code and digital processes tight linked to sound and visuals. The SoundCode.Sketches chapter shows soundtoys in which the process of the codes are tight linked to visuals. As the user navigates the soundtoys, the visuals reflects the nakedness of code. cinema.tik chapter shows these same processes but “skinned” by loops/fragments of iconographic films tightly linked to the artist “history” as culture consumer. The codes used are readaptations of code found on the internet designed for other uses (physics spatialization, formulae representations, etc). Thus three approaches / levels of remixing are involved: soundvisual / interface, code, culture.

In this clip the loops are from The Love Flower (1920) by D.W. Griffith.
