Video Interview with [The User]

Second of the MUTEKMAG video series

Video Interview with [The User]

This week’s MUTEKMAG video features Montreal duo [The User]. Members EMMANUEL MADAN a trained musician, and THOMAS MCINTOSH, a trained architect, have produced a family of acclaimed works that include musical composition, audio-visual performance and sound installation, since first coming onto the scene in 1997.

Here they describe their “The Symphony #2 for Dot Matrix Printers”, a work that networks more than a dozen of these now obsolete machines together to run a ‘score’ of ASCII text files. The printing action produces a remarkably harmonious screech of different frequencies, pitches, and melodies.
