The Scan Processor Studies are a collection of works by Woody Vasulka & Brian O’Reilly.
The full work is of total approximate duration of 45 minutes, with sections of various lengths, textures, and dynamic qualities.
The works use sources excavated directly from the output of the Rutt-Etra Scan Processor of the 1970′s, as well as further manipulations using Tom Demeyer’s ImX software, developed with input from Steina. Extensive editing and layering and additional augmentations were done using Phil Mortons IP. The Sound was generated (mostly) by custom software developed by Chandrasekhar Ramakrishnan and myself called NETHER GENERATOR, which sets up a number of complex real time feedback networks filtered and processed by various means.
