Peter Edwards is an American artist, musician, and teacher who has explored circuit bending and experimental music and instruments through his business Casperelectronics. He sometimes performs under the same name. He works extensively with interlinked sound and light generation to create immersive musical experiences.
On view for the duration of his residency is DroneScape, which consists of ten inter-connected "NovaDrones," electronic kits create a drone orchestra by engaging with light, sound, and spaces that they occupy. The unending frequencies waver and distort as one moves throughout the space and becomes enveloped in a unique auditory and visual environment. DroneScape is an homage to the landscape of oscillations New Yorkers move through every day as every ventilation system, jackhammer, car alarm or revving engine we encounter possesses its own unique drone.
Also on view is a modified Nintendo video game console, which has it's video outputs and controllers manipulated in such that way to allow both players to interfere with the video signal itself in addition to the avatars on screen, extending the competitive game-play into a parallel, collaborative, video manipulation work.
