Welcome to the latest edition of Monday Night Noise Sessions! This one links back to another post I made recently, in which I used databending to process a photo into glitch art, see Rorschach on Acid. The process involved converting the original image into raw data and importing it into Sound Forge for processing with audio effects. This piece uses the audio version of that raw data as one of the main sound sources, run through a custom granular synthesis effect called "grainfed".
I started a new job this week, and in the chaos, I didn't get a chance to find something new to play with video/visualization-wise, so once again, visual effects are provided with VSXu.
If this is your first time here: Monday Night Noise Sessions are recorded live, using a mix of hardware and software. I lack the bandwidth to do a proper live stream, so the videos are pre-recorded, but no editing is done to the performance.

DIY modular (Lunetta-style CMOS and analog stuff)
Behringer Virtualizer Pro & Composer Pro
Alesis Midiverb & NanoCompressor
ADA S-1000 delay
Tapco 12 channel mixer
