A WORD FROM STOGIE...
Welcome to the Videosynth gallery! This page will showcase some of the video art purported to be created by the ominous presence known as VOODU. Now, I know what you're thinking...
What the hell is "videosynth"? Who the hell is "VOODU"? And why the hell am I still browsing this wretched webpage?!?
Fear not, dear webtrekker, for I can answer at least one of those questions!
Videosynth is hardware or software that synthesizes/chemically modifies a video signal. Generally in the historical past, Videosynth and video effects for television and film have been achieved by the use of complicated and expensive hardware such as the Scanimate, Video Toaster, EMS Spectron, Fairlight CVI, Sony DME units, and many more purpose built machines and setups. The video effects of the 80's and 90's are characterized by the use of these devices, giving early music videos and video art that distinct analog flair. Luckily, in the age of Coronavirus and Fort Bliss, the videosynth community is still alive and well. Affordable hardware and software solutions are now available for all the eager video artists/chemical enthusiasts who previously would have needed a bout of generational wealth or a job at a local TV station to peruse such an esoteric pastime.
