After a break in our Electronic Media Residencies, the IEA had a great November 30 – December 4, 2020 reboot with Adam Tinkle.

Tinkle made signifiant and masterful use of our EboSuite video processing software which is hosted within the application Ableton Live. He also worked with the ATEM mixer, comprehensively using keys, mix, DVE+ effects. Adam brought with him analog mini video-mixers that he then added to the IEA studio system, which he also put through the Dave Jones Design MVIP. And then brought into the ATEM mix, cunningly navigating different technological resolutions and aesthetics.

Outside of the IEA studio Adam generated content on the Division of Expanded Media’s, 1979 Snodgrass-Sandin IP. On this legacy piece of hardware Tinkle generated content for his amazing Friday DEC, 4 2020 “lightsoundin_darktimes_001” live stream. Unfortunately the stream had trouble but the performance was recorded in-house and is now up in the IEA YouTube channel. The IEA is grateful to Adam for his pushing our livestream capabilities, and his patience with our livestream growing pains. Lastly, Adam made a six channel WIP and tested it out on the Snodgrass TSI multi-screen video gallery.

Adam Tinkle’s work considers sound, listening, improvisation, and co-creation across divides of artistic discipline and social location. His path winds between performances, gallery exhibitions, site-specific interventions, participatory workshops, and collaborations in a range of media, including an audio drama featuring Marina Abramovic and Kim Stanley Robinson and the ambisonic sound design for the award-winning 360 VR film “How to Tell a True Immigrant Story.” His music releases on Risky Forager, Edgetone, and Midnight Gallery span noise, jazz, and folksong, and his recent video installations imagine feedback as a form of machinic desire.
