Lori Napoleon, Meridian7



Meridian7's Lori Napoleon performs an analog audio excursion as part of the 2013 New York Electronic Art Festival, in partnership with Church For All Nations and Hells Kitchen Cultural Center / Rhythm In The Kitchen Festival. Meridian7 explores the physiological dimensions of electronic media by altering the use of original telephone equipment with a concentration on light and sound. The product is a visual and aural experience that transforms vintage switchboards into new instruments.

Before playing Intercept Tone Vacant Level, Lori discusses the inspiration behind the piece. Her fascination with these tones stems from a Craftwork interview regarding telephone sounds. The initial taste led to further research of early telephone systems and the "phone phreak" subculture. This piece explores sonic textures using comb filtering, a technique that creates evolving timbres through a process of time-delayed feedback, forming “notches” of positive and negative interference and other endless modifications of the signal path.
