“Culture of Fire” for Analog Neural Network Synthesizer, Geiger Muller Counters and Computer
Scot Gresham-Lancaster, UT Dallas
The “Culture of Fire” is an ongoing live performance piece constructed of residue from a project that was started by David Tudor and others to turn INTEL’s now defunct Electronically Trainable Analog Neural Net (ETANN) into a music synthesizer. A secondary layer of “control” in the live performance of the piece is that Geiger Muller Tube triggers are used as the source of actuation and location distribution of sonic events.
