Rheomodes, by Long Distance Poison

March 31, 2017

Rheomodes is an audio-visual project by the Brooklyn, experimental electronic duo Long Distance Poison that grew from ongoing research into Cold War era initiatives in mind control and fringe intellectual thought.

Using analog electronic audio and video synthesis, Rheomodes is where sound controls image and image controls sound, clearing an opening for formless movements between each relative phenomena and possible moments of cognitive reprogramming by means of processual emphasis.

Over the course of the summer of 2016, using intuition, pseudo-randomness and self-generating systems, three audio-visual events were documented via three video imports. The events can be described as films or as songs but are really less distinct objects than different contexts of process.

Rheomodes is being released three ways: as a limited run cassette by Oxtail Recordings; as three videos accessible by purchasing the cassette; and as an installation at Printed Matter with opening performance.

Justin Lakes (Shredded Nerve) will also offer an audio/visual performance, capturing the sounds of a live drawing through contact mics and processing the noise.
