Heads I Win? Tails You Lose

by Le Grice, Malcolm

Video 1985


First titled Jazz Punk, this work is based on a series of drawings I made over a number of years of heads inspired in part by punk styles. These were scanned into the Atari and manipulated through the programme in various ways. The music is generated by the same programme and is intended to evoke an atmosphere of a jazz/punk night club. In the original computer version I played part of the sound live from a keyboard into the computer (though the MIDI port). This input slightly modified, interactively, the development of the programme. The tape version was edited from one of the 'performances'. Part of Sketches for a Sensual Philosophy
